today is little audrey’s half year birthday. half of a year? that’s big stuff! i kind of can’t believe it. it surely doesn’t feel like that much time has gone by. i guess in general i have letting go issues and this is no different. this first year of baby is just flying by quicker than i can soak it all in the way i want. it is a whirlwind of learning and love, full of cycles and changes.
right now in audrey’s life…starting to sit up on her own (she doesn’t really realize that she can do it yet,) when you hold her up she will stand on her legs which is just adorable because she seems so little to be standing and it makes it funny, sleeping at night from 7:30pm to 6:30am, laughing, squealing very loudly (at hobby lobby yesterday she rode in the buggy for the first time and was squealing so loud i am positive you could hear her across the store,) holding her bottle all by herself, flapping her arms up and down like she’s trying to fly away, smiling these huge happy smiles, loves to watch the cars go by and lay in the hammock, eats 6 times a day-still about 4-5 ounces each time, will start to try some food now (made it 6 months with exclusive breast feeding & no supplements,) loves frida and trying to get her, scoots all over the place on the floor, waves one whole arm when she’s saying hey, puts her paci in and takes it out and does this serious examination of it in between
making the decision to have a child in momentous. it is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. -elizabeth stone
