clean-shaven daddy

Todd has kept a beard since the day Audrey was born. With the warm weather upon us, he decided to shave it off today.

I love this face!

party animal

Yesterday we attended not one, but two family parties.

First it was to St. Charles for Mackenzie's first communion. Audrey visited with aunts, uncles and cousins, most of whom she has not seen since Christmas. Here are Todd and Audrey with Mackenzie, Julie and AudBlog devotee Michelle.

Then we were off to Jeffrey and Jaila's second birthday party. They don't pay Todd and I much attention, but Jeffrey does love his cousin Audrey.

pod for baby

This molded green plastic thing is supposed to help babies sit. Audrey looks unhappy in this picture that Todd took tonight, but she has really started to like and do a good job sitting in it.

our weekend

On Saturday Audrey, Todd and I took a long walk and then marvelled at how nicely the trees and plants are blooming in our yard.

On Sunday we stayed close to home so Todd could recover from getting too much sun from our walk on Saturday. Audrey did a lot of chewing on her new alligator toy. Or is it a crocodile?

Tuesday fun

Took advantage of the beautiful weather today by taking the girl for a walk to the neighborhood skate park.

This marks Audrey's first time on the course, too bad she has a while before she'll be rolling under the power of anything but stroller wheels.

After all that fun, there was only one thing left to do...

This morning we had brunch at M. Henry with Kym from the ACS and members of the Daffodil Days committee, who I used to work with. Here is Audrey with Sally, the Daffodil Days chair. She was always one of my favorite volunteers.

After brunch we went to visit Katie, Sam and Silas

Monday in black & white

Audrey visited her new doctor for the first time today. Our little girl has hit 15 pounds! After the visit, Audrey took a long nap and woke up in a great mood. I just had to take pictures.

happy bunny day

It's been a busy weekend! We went to Grandma Sue and Papa Dave's today. Aunt Erinn came too and it was the first time we'd seen her since Christmas. We got to meet her new boyfriend briefly and she brought greasy lamb cake with a brown jelly bean on it's butt. It was a great day until the drive home when Audrey cried the entire time. As soon as we got home she was all smiles and laughs again.

visit to Grandma Channamom's

Today we went to Grandma Channamom's house to see my side of the family.

My sister-in-law Erika entertains the kids.

Audrey with cousins Alyssa and Tyler. Last year Tyler called Todd to ask if he is Spiderman. Guess which comic nerd really liked that?

Audrey with her cousin Seth, or "the baby named Seth" as Alyssa calls him. Seth is almost 11 months old and has already started walking.

new toy

After much mental debate we bought Audrey a jumperoo. This is a devise that she sits in and can jump up and down and play with toys attached to it. It is quite obnoxious, but it is going to be a great help keeping the baby busy so I can get things done (like taking a shower!). I went to breakfast with Sara and Tina this morning and when I got home Todd had put it together. Audrey was sitting in it and loving it!

four months

Audrey is four months today! Time is just flying by and we can't believe how amazing she is. She has started to drool and chew on everything within reach, so soon we will see some teeth. At her last weigh in she was 14 pounds 9 ounces. She is now lifting her legs up all of the time and holding her feet, especially when we are changing her, like she is trying to help with the diaper change. Is she a great little helper or just trying to get those feet in her mouth?!

the bad with the good

As she sometimes does when she wakes from naps, Audrey had a bit of a freak out after her nap today. One of my attempts to distract her was to take some pictures of her. This is Audrey when she is upset, tears and all. So sad...

On a happier note, look at how good Audrey was doing with tummy time yesterday.

hooray for the weekend

The new family budget kicks in this month, so we got one last Saturday brunch in before the dining out funds disappear - the irony being that this was the very first brunch we have had as a family. I'm sure there will be others sometime down the road. Audrey handled herself well, though I really wish our waiter had come by to ask "how's it tasting?" when she spent some time gnawing on her own fist.

This weekend also included a visit from Lynn and Mike, but for some reason we didn't have the camera flashing our usual every 10 seconds. Much to their relief I'm sure. I guess we'll just have to run some more brunch shots to fill out the post. (Note Jill's cute new frames!)

Since we didn't take pictures when they were here this weekend, I am posting pictures of Mike when he visited us in the hospital and of Lynn when Lynn, Mike and Brad came out to Aurora in January. Thank you for visiting! -Jill
