Does anyone else remember these? These commercials aired on the Discovery Channel years ago, but I think they are hysterical (I think you have to have a somewhat strange sense of humor to laugh at these, but here you go).

Okay, so this is a very random thing to post about, but I LOVE this commercial and found myself singing this all morning! I’ll admit that Andrew and I spend WAY too much time watching the Discovery Channel, but they have some really great shows (and great commercials).

5 is the number of outfits that Audrey and I went through yesterday (all before noon).  She went through 3 and I went through 2 (with her help of course).  It’s amazing that one little bitty person can add so much laundry to your normal routine!  Good thing she’s cute. 🙂

Yesterday we took Audrey to church for the first time. She did really well. She didn’t seem to pay much attention to the sermon, but she didn’t scream through the whole thing either…I call that a successful first church experience.

It was really great to see so many of our friends and get to introduce Audrey to people who have been praying for us and her for a long time now. It made me realize just how blessed Andrew and I are to have such a fabulous church family and be surrounded by people who we can count on to support us, laugh with us, pray for us, encourage us, and keep us accountable.

Here are a couple of pictures of Audrey in her church dress. 🙂

Did anyone else happen to watch the New Kids On The Block performance on the Today Show yesterday morning? I’ll admit, I was completely enthralled in it. It’s was so strange to see thousands of women screaming, cheering, and acting like they were going to faint at the sight of five thirty-something ex-boy banders (most of whom are now married and have kids). Quite the flashback for those of us that grew up with NKOTB. By the way, it’s been 15 years since their last performance together. Bizarre!

Donnie is still my favorite. 🙂

Several people have commented that Audrey must look a lot like I did as a baby, so my Mom went digging through my old baby book. Here are some pictures of me as a baby…you be the judge.

Check out my hair in this picture…what is that?

This one does look a lot like Audrey to me.

I just put this one on here so you could check out my Mom sporting the short shorts right after I was born. That’s impressive! 🙂

Here’s the really weird thing that my Mom found while looking through my baby book…Audrey and I were the very same weight and length at birth (7lbs 9oz and 21 inches long).  What are the odds of that happening?  Pretty cool, huh.

1 week ago today…

Audrey is one week old today, and we’ve managed to keep her alive this long!!!

She got her first real bath today. Here are some pictures of the big event. I think she liked it.

All clean

She also had another doctor appointment this morning (her third one in five days), and she got a good report. She’s been dealing with some jaundice issues, but today her tests came back fine. She’s also up to 7lbs 13ozs (4ozs more than her birth weight)! She’s packing on the ounces!

Dino has been staying with our friends, Drew and Colette, for the past week. On Saturday they brought him back over to our house and he got to meet Audrey for the first time. We were a little worried about how he would react to having a baby in the house, but so far, he’s done really well. He’s acting a little more needy and is a bit more of a freak than normal, but he’s been sweet with the baby.

And, here’s just another picture that I think is cute. I don’t know what she’s doing with her hands, but that’s how she was sleeping.

Our new niece!

So, here’s another baby picture, but it’s not of Audrey.  This is our new little niece Isabel Marie.  Michele and Andy (Andrew’s sister and brother-in-law) welcomed baby Isabel into the world on May 7th.  She was 7lbs 4ozs and 19 3/4 inches long.  Congrats to Michele, Andy, Logan, and Tamra!  How fun to have cousins that were born so close together!

More pictures

We’ve taken more pictures in the last 4 days than we’ve taken in the past year! Anyway, here are a couple more of Audrey that we think are pretty darn cute (but we think everything she does is cute).

I promise to one day blog about something other than the baby.  But for now, we can’t find anything cuter to put on the blog, and plus, we don’t get out much now.  🙂
