Wedding, 8 months, Anniversary, Concert!

Well, grad school is completely kicking my butt this summer! I'm only taking 6 credits (2 classes) but it's MUCH different with a baby to take care of! Audrey keeps me entertained as I'm writing papers--- she babbles next to me the entire time.

Jedd and I enjoyed my pledge sister Lauren's wedding in DC on June 13. It was our first night away from Audrey and we did well! It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding! So happy for her!

The beautiful bride

Audrey turned 8 months old on June 15. 8 MONTHS?!?!?! She's so amazing.

A little about what she's doing:
-Babbling non-stop (she has mastered ba, da, and occasionally ma and la)
-Wears 6-9 month clothes
-Size 3 diaper
-Can sit independently for a little longer...but still being LAZY
-Gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth
-Can move to where she wants my scooting (she also crawls with her head DOWN!)
-Has TWO teeth--- the bottom 2. The second one came in on June 11.
-Eats solids--- she has tried carrots, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, rice, and we're still adding new ones
-Loves being outside
-Loves Charley and pulling his hair (he's such a good sport)
-Holds her own bottle and feed herself-- with ONE hand
-Sleeps on her belly with her feet tucked under her and her butt up in the air

Almost crawling...

On June 23, Jedd and I celebrated two years of marriage. We went back to Allenberry again (where we were married and had our reception) to take pictures. We've been going back each year to get a picture on the rocking chairs on the front porch of the mansion. It's a cute tradition and we LOVED having Audrey to share it with this year!

This weekend we also spent an evening away from Audrey. My best friend Melissa go us tickets to see Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry, and Sugarland in concert. It was AMAZING!!!! We were definitely feeling the effects the next day!

Lots of ASA girls at the concert!

Other than that, nothing is really new! I'm amazed that time is flying by so quickly. July already in a few days....I only have 8 more days of grad school left and then I have a huge qualifying exam I need to pass to move up in my program. After that.... I'll update much more frequently!

Sweet Summer!

I'm baaaaaack!! I can't believe it's been nearly a month since I posted!

Audrey is now less than a week away from being 8 months old!!! I can't even believe it.
It's been a crazy few weeks for us. School officially ended on Friday but I've been going in to finish up all my paperwork (special ed, gotta love it) and getting my room ready for summer cleaning. I started one of my grad school classes last night. It's an online course so we only have to meet 2 times all semester which is nice. I start my other course on Monday and that's everyday for 5 weeks--- YUCK!

Jedd bought me a Canon Rebel XTI for my birthday!!! I almost couldn't believe it. I've been able to capture some absolutely beautiful pictures of Audrey!!! I feel like a professional photographer now!

Jedd and I are heading to Washington D.C. this weekend for one of my dear pledge sisters weddings! I'm really excited about seeing all my best friends from college but absolutely devastated to leave Audrey for the first time overnight. I'll post pictures after this weekend!!
