1st Halloween

Well we had Audrey's first Halloween and boy oh boy was she cute!!! If I had just picked her costume out without asking Bryce what HE wanted her to be, she probably would have been wearing some cute tutu with some wings of some sort, but I asked Bryce, and he wouldn't sign off on any of the 100's of costumes I showed him. She had to be this......

but I have to admit, it turned out pretty cute, she loved carrying around her golf bag and she is the cutest little LPGA Golfer I have ever seen!! I had to buy each individual item online at different stores, of course they don't make 6 month golf costumes that I could find anywhere online. So needless to say it took me awhile to find it all, crossed my fingers it would get here in time and that it would all look good together. I think I did pretty good if I must say so myself! I'm sure it will hit way to soon when this kid is actually carrying around the real clubs, but when she does, daddy will be right there behind her to be her caddy and take them off her hands.

beware of binky

A couple of weeks ago I went to Women's Conference and Bryce had Audrey all to himself. Bryce had to run an errand with her and while she was in the back of his truck he heard a scream all of the sudden. The same scream she made when she got her shots. He knew something was wrong, so he quickly reached his hand back to her mouth and she had her binky jammed/ wedged inside her mouth and she couldn't get it out. Bryce said that he had to pry it out, he didn't even know how she did that. Obviously that binky is to small for that big mouth so we had to move up to the 6 month binky a little early. So beware, you don't always go off of the size it says on the box :)

just because..........

My dear sweetheart brought these home yesterday for no reason. What girl couldn't use flowers?? I have the best husband ever, I know that, sometimes it's nice to be reminded though.

complaining get's you nowhere

Well the title post couldn't be more true, but yet, I still do it. After my previous post of being sleep deprived, Audrey sure showed me what happens when you complain. Right after I had written that post, she was an angel. She slept through the night finally for a good week just to give me a taste of the good life and then the cold came. Yes, my baby got her first cold and it is sad, don't get me wrong. I don't like the feeling of being helpless when your child is sick, especially when they are to young to really give them something. Thank goodness it's just a small cold and nothing more serious than that! So I put the humidifier in her room, and she suddenly turns into a newborn again. Waking up every 3 hrs. What the crap?? I love this little girl to pieces, but I really don't need a 5 month old teaching me lessons on what happens when you complain, little smarty pants. Did I mention that my child is smart? She doesn't like to sleep but she sure is smart.

sleep deprived

I can complain cause it's my blog, so I don't want to hear about how bad you had it or how easy it was for you when you were a parent of young children... just listen to me vent and say how sorry you feel for me.
The fact that I work, makes it difficult to give my child a complete schedule, therefore leaving our nights not sleeping very well. She had a couple of nights where she slept the whole night through, but then we went on a few vacations and that messed everything up. She has been doing the 4:30 thing on me and yes it's killing me.
I think Bryce wrapped it up in a nut shell when he said, "I don't think it matters if she sleeps the whole night or not, getting up at 7:00am is hard. I'm just the kind of person that needs to sleep in later." I agree, however, I don't quite know what he's talking about, like he gets up with Audrey, nor does he ever hear me get up with her. Poor Bryce. NO! Poor me remember, this is my blog, I'm taking the little time I do have to right this thing, so you will all feel sorry for me. hehehe
I've been trying the binky thing when she does wake up. She does go right back to sleep, but of course it takes me 2 hours to get myself back to sleep because I'm a freak, lot's going through my mind. Who's gonna rock me back to sleep? This last week Audrey has had a couple of nights that she didn't wake up, but of course that's when the dog wakes me up to take her out to potty because she ate some sort of garbage on the job site or I happen to be up sneezing and blowing my nose with allergies or I'm just being a freak and looking at the monitor to see if she's ok.
I guess the question really isn't when will Audrey sleep through the night, it's when will I?


here are some of the things my baby girl has been doing lately

riding Abbie.....

throwing up on Abbie.....

falling asleep on her new toy....

she has a chic clown nose....

welcoming October in her scary skeleton pj's....


I forgot to mention that Audrey has been standing since about 4 months old. You can put her up to something and she will just stand there all by herself. All she ever wants you to do when holding her, is to let her stand on your lap. She has always had the strongest little legs, I'm just not sure if she will ever use them for crawling. I have a feeling she may just go straight to running!! Only time will tell......
