Mark and I both couldn’t get over how much she looked like a little girl here and not like a baby.  Happy sad.

some little things that audrey does…

says hey and pup-pup

waves at everyone and everything

sits with her legs crossed, like little tiny indian-style

walks along the furniture

learned how to really splash big in the tub and likes to stand up

eats grated cheese, goldfish and bananas

laughs really hard at peek-a-boo

looks under the covers in our bed to find frida and thinks it is great

laughs when frida licks her hands

does this fast-talk babble when she is mad

some more goodness that is right now…

black sharpies, dancing with my girl, right now favorite song-rocks and daggers by noah and the whale, tae-bo, veggie-burgers, violin, productive days, driving/thinking time, bright eyes, things being clean, fat baby cheeks, that profile part of babies when you can see their little neck and chin..starting to see Audrey like that sometimes, ‘forsurity’, anything books, office supplies,  sewing paper, audrey’s crawl/scoot when something is too good to be put down, gray days that you are in, the colors in the dog days are over video, family, my talking and deep understanding with jana, having that with her and a couple dear friends in this life, taking note of the mama i want to be now and also 30 years from now, having time for myself in that way, 37 plants

I needed some asphalt…

Yesterday Audrey and I went to Columbia.  It was a trip to get shoes for her tiny little feet.  It ended up being a trip to get some perspective.  The kind that only seems to come from asphalt and a few hours of thought.  And yesterday’s could be called the view through a poop stained windshield.  (This is literal too.  The robins’ yearly trip through Hartsville happened last weekend.)  But as I was driving and looking through all that poo, I realized that lately that’s how I’ve been looking at things in my life.  And to spare the details, I decided to appreciate the robins, even if sometimes you are covered in the poop.

things i love love.

hummus, moments on the changing table, time in the paint chip section…a little date with myself, diet coke with caffeine, vintage ornaments, remembering things that you had forgotten about, starting a new journal, when mark dresses the baby (cotton candy), chairs, white winter outside for days in a row, sledding without the get-off, leggings and a sweater everyday for a week, parenthood -tv show, a good writing pen, watching the plants start to root,  “Nobody is bored when he is trying to make something that is beautiful, or to discover something that is true. ” -William Inge, couch sleeping, metal shelves and baskets and boxes, things coming in the mail

A little sleeping in, cooking, house stuff and a project from start to finish.  Thank you snow day.

Numbers to go with Audrey’s magnetic letters

she did it again…

no crying, just a quiet fight that she lost- standing up.
