birthday weekend

Todd and I celebrate not just our birthdays, but the entire weekend around each other's birthdays. With mine approaching, this weekend was full of activities that Todd planned. Audrey was in tow for all of it and made this the best birthday weekend yet.

First we met up with Erinn and the boyfriend Kieran in Chicago at Karyn's raw food, where everything is made of nuts and vegetables and left uncooked to keep all nutrients intact. This was the perfect place for me with my current diet of no dairy, soy and eggs. As usual, Audrey was a perfect lady at the restaurant.

On Sunday we spent the day at Brookfield Zoo. It was Audrey's first time at a zoo!

baby visitor

Mommy will be posting a little something about all our fun "birthday weekend" activities; for now enjoy this shot of our new friend. She's visited several times over the past few days.

Audrey sits!

Grandma Channamom has been requesting video, so here's some exciting footage of the girl sitting on her own today. I surprised Audrey with the camera when she woke up, so that may explain why she still appears a bit groggy here.

lunch with Sarah

Today Audrey and I had a leisurely lunch with my friend from college Sarah. We hadn't seen each other for about two years and it was great to catch up!

what's so funny

Something was very funny the other night when Todd was carrying Audrey around the house in the Bjorn. We don't know what it was but he got pictures of the baby during her fit of laughter.

swing, baby

We put Audrey in the swing at the park for the first time tonight!

She was a bit cautious at first

By the end we knew she liked it because the tongue was out

new camera

We had been talking about upgrading our digital camera for a while. Since I lost our camera on Saturday (it has since been found!), we bought a new one on Sunday as an early anniversary present to ourselves. Unfortunately, we missed out on pictures this weekend when Audrey hung out with Todd, Lynn, Mike and Brad while I volunteered at Walk & Roll.

Yesterday morning I was anxiously waiting for Audrey to wake up so I could get some shots of her with the new camera.

two for one

Audrey went to meet her grandpa John and great grandmother Lilian for the first time today.

While we were out that way, we stopped by to see grandma Channamom at work. Audrey helped with payroll.

Happy Mother's Day!

It was breakfast in bed for my lucky girls today! Waffles and hot chocolate, what more could a mom ask for on her first mother's day? How about a Hotsling that's one size too big? Daddy, you think of everything...

Happy Birthday, Seth!

We spent our Saturday wishing Audrey's cousin Seth a happy birthday! Here's the birthday boy getting ready for some birthday cake.

Here's the birthday boy debuting his new look.

Audrey was in demand and spent most of her day visiting with all her relatives. Here she is with her cousin Julie.

And while a photo with with his cousins Tyler, Allysa, And Audrey would have been nice, Seth just wasn't having it this time around.

it's a jungle out there

We really needs to mow the lawn. When Todd got home from work tonight we lounged in the back yard and there is grass almost as tall as Audrey.

Audrey's first time barefooted in the grass

Being outside is fun

Even outside you have to watch for flailing fists, daddy!

getting our hands dirty

Todd took the day off from work today. After yoga we went to see the baby-friendly showing of Spiderman 3 then did some much needed yard work.

Natasha took time out from exploring the yard to sit with Audrey

We pulled weeds and finally planted flowers in the box outside the front window

Every night we read books to Audrey and tonight she and Todd were looking especially cute

water baby

Audrey had her first bath in the real tub this morning. No more baby tub for this big five-month old!

five months

Audrey turned five months today! Where does the time go? We can't believe the things she can now do - standing and sitting with assistance, mastering tummy time and grabbing anything in reach.

We spent the day with my old friend Susan. We got coffee and then walked around the hood. Audrey was intrigued by Susan, constantly wanting to look at her.

baby yoga master

Audrey started baby yoga this morning; alas, no photo evidence exists yet. I'm hoping next week we'll get a shot of Aud demonstrating a gentle cobra. For now, enjoy this shot Jill took earlier today of the girl trying out a new look.

And here's the scene that greeted me when I arrived home from work. That goofy smile sure takes the sting out of a long day toiling in the library.
