Snow Day!!!!

Between last night and tonight we got a few inches of snow and then it turned into the wintry mix---- so NO school today!!!! As much as I'd rather have a 2 hour delay instead, it was so much fun playing with Audrey all day!

Speaking of Audrey--- she slept wonderfully last night! We've been trying to establish some sort of routine for her and it's been going really well. Her bedtime is now always between 9:30 - 10 (although if her bottle is due around 10 we feed her and then put her down). She's been great with it and even if she's wide awake when we put her in her crib, she settles down and falls asleep before long! Last night we put her down around 10:15 and she didn't wake up until 5:30 for a bottle! I fed her and put her back down and she didn't wake up again until 9:30! Oh, I love the sleep I am getting!

I'm back to trying to catch up on my TV shows!

Lazy weekend!

Today Audrey and I are being super lazy! Unfortunately, her Mommy and Daddy let her swing run out of batteries and have none in the house! Audrey has been going through swing withdrawl for 3 days now! OH NO! I keep telling Jedd we should just shell out the money and get her a swing that plugs into the wall! It'd be worth the investment. He insists we don't need another swing and just need to buy rechargeable batteries. Hey, as long as he keeps up with them, then fine. Meanwhile though, I'm dealing with a very sad little girl....haha

Audrey and I decided not to do anything today. Okay, more like I decided, but still. Audrey either 1. likes to be held or 2. likes her swing but I can't get anything done with choice #1 and choice #2 is out of commission!

I have some great new pictures of Audrey I'll post soon! We took her 3 month pictures on Thursday (can you believe it's been 3 months already?). They turned out great! She's getting bigger by the second---- I mean it! I also took her to the Dr's on Thursday for her 3 month checkup. She is average for everything (length, weight, and head circum). Right on track! He also let us know that she can't have any solids until 6 months old. I really thought 4 months was the time to start, but apparently not. So we're halfway there! Audrey still gets formula during the day and breastmilk in the evenings and she's doing well on both! Yay for us! Her new stats are posted to the left.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

2 down, 48 to go!

Well, I added a new book to my list today! I finished reading Marley & Me tonight. I had to use a million tissues and hug and kiss Charley a bunch! It was soooo sad! I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie now. It is a must for me to always read a book before seeing the movie.

50 Books in 2009:

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer 1/1/09
2. Marley & Me by John Grogan 1/6/09

I'm hoping I can keep up with 1 book/week but I have a feeling I'll slow down more when grad school starts back up next week. On another note, I received New Moon today in the mail (the 2nd book in the Twilight series) and I am really excited to read it! Gotta keep up with my middle school kids and the popular books they are reading! ha!

Hello 2009!

So, needless to say I have absolutely NO time for updating this! Audrey keeps us busy, busy and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Today was my first day back from the holiday break and the kiddos were craaaazy! Of course, it was to be expected. Jedd and I had a great Christmas with our new addition and we were happy to ring in a new year too! We feel that we were extremely blessed in 2008 and are excited to see what 2009 holds!

I have decided that instead of a New Year's Resolution, I would instead decide on something I actually WANT to do this year. So I've got it: I'm going to read 50 books this year. Ok, so my original goal was to read 100 but Jedd told me I'm not practical. And he may be right--- we have a newborn daughter, I work a full time job, and I'm going to grad school part time. So, I adjusted my goal.

And the best part? I've already added 1 book to the list (and I'm currently working on another):

50 Books in 2009:
1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer 1/1/09

I'll leave you all with a picture of our darling daughter (who is growing by the minute). We go in for her 3 month checkup next Thursday so I'll update with her stats. She is now a babbling fool--- trying to talk all the time! She also just started slobbering/drooling constantly and is chewing on anything in site (we're thinking teething may be coming our way).
