What's today?

I usually get like this during winter break and summer vacation...I lose track of what day it is, because really, what does it even matter? All I know is that I didn't work yesterday and I'm not working tomorrow. Well, I didn't GO to work...but trust me, there's been a lot of lesson planning and grading going on!

Being home has thrown off our schedule a bit. Since Audrey sleeps until 8 or 9, her afternoon nap is insanely late. So we've just been doing one mid-day nap, with a short period of quiet time in the late afternoon. I'm sure she'll transition just fine back to 2 naps when she goes back to grandma.

Today I noticed how much she was all over the place. Just aimlessly wandering from one room to another, for no specific purpose. She babbled the entire time (which made it easier to keep track of her!) Most of the time she carries something, like her teapot, a small ball, a book, but usually she finds her Mickey to tote around:

He's great for chewing on as well!

She always seems to be having fun, I just love her personality!

The past couple of nights, after she's been sleeping for awhile, I've brought her into bed with me and I just hold her while I watch TV. She sleeps so peacefully in my arms, and I love being able to kiss her sweet head and stroke her soft hair. After an hour or so, I put her right back in her crib and she's none the wiser :)

Snuggle time!

I'm bunnymacdougal from ML (the nest). I saw your blog on there somewhere and now I just LOVE seeing all Audrey's photos and progress - she's just ahead of my daughter. You have a lovely family. :)

I'm so jealous that she'll stay asleep while you take her into your bed! I would love to do that, there's nothing better than cuddling these days.

Jacob abandoned two naps at 11 months but he refused the afternoon was weird. Audrey is just the cutest thing ever. It's great that she has learned to entertain herself so well. Jacob has the same little Mickey!
