I'm still here!!!

I promise I have not disappeared forever! We had a really busy weekend--- Audrey was 7 months old on Friday (5/15), Jedd and I went away for the day to Atlantic City on Saturday, and Sunday was my 25th birthday!!! To top it all off, allergies hit me like crazy and I was super sick for it ALL! I'll update with pictures and stuff over the weekend!!!

Hope everyone had a great week! Mine went so fast!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Today I celebrated my first Mother's Day as a mom. Wow, suddenly you realize what this holiday is all about. Last year I was a little over 4 months pregnant and Jedd made sure it was a special day for me, but today was even better! We carried on our annual Mother's Day tradition and had a bushel of hard-shelled crabs! YUMMMM!! Jedd and I were able to celebrate Mother's Day with both of our moms which is extremely important to us.

Jedd was so cute--- he went out and got me flowers, a card from Audrey, and a card from him. My mom treated me to bali blue Vera Bradley flip flops too!! Of course, her card made me cry too!!!

My life has been forever changed by Audrey. Suddenly, I realize my purpose in life--- and it is to love and care for her. I feel blessed beyond words this Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day to all the other Mom's out there--- we have the MOST important job in the world! How lucky are we?!?

Food and a TOOTH!

Thursday (May 7) was my Mom's birthday! Unfortunately, my older sister wasn't feeling well so we decided to postpone my mom's birthday dinner. We have a tradition that when it's your birthday you get to pick a restaurant to go out to eat to and everyone goes. I felt bad we weren't doing anything, so Jedd and I decided to do a dinner for my mom at our house.

Grandma and Audrey

Well, May 7 turned out to be a big day for other reasons! Finally, after 2+ months of constant drool and fussiness, Miss Audrey cut her first tooth!!! It's on the bottom left side of her gums and each day it slowly comes up more and more. It is TOO cute!!!!

We also decided to give Audrey her first taste of solids! We started her out on carrots and she LOVED them! I was worried she wouldn't think much of solids but she ate the whole container!! It was exciting to give her something other than a bottle. We have a Dr.'s appointment tomorrow so I'm looking forward to talking with him about what the next step is and how often we can give her solids, etc.

The first bite

Hmmmm.... what is that stuff?

I like carrots!!!

May 7 was a very important day to us for many reasons--- but mostly, it's the BEST Mom in the world's special day. Happy Birthday Mom!!!
