Who can believe our baby is a year old? We can't! But she is. Life is crazy.
On June 29, Miss Audrey turned one. It was Flaming Gorge days, so we went to the parade in the morning, then went down to the island so Joel could help man the station for Castle Rock and the kids and I walked around and played a bit. It was a hot day! In the evening Audrey got to open presents and eat her cake! She didn't care too much about presents, but she did enjoy playing with her toys. She cared a lot more about the cake, and she reminded me of Adam with his birthday cake because she was actually pretty efficient in her cake eating. She was a holy mess by the time she was done, though!
Some things about Audrey at one:
She's not walking yet, but she cruises along the furniture and walks with someone holding her hands.
She basically knows the difference between "Mama" and "Dada".
She loves to pull things out in the kitchen and the pantry. Preferably crackers or pretzels. She likes to make a mess.
She likes being outside, but doesn't like crawling on grass. So she bear crawls on her hands and toes.
She takes two naps a day and sleeps through the night. Overall she's a great sleeper!
She likes to crawl on Dad, or Mom if Dad isn't available. She will crawl over, under, around, or wherever, and it's the best when she takes a rest and lays her head down on us.
She likes to scream. When she's happy or sad or mad, she screams. It can be very loud. And very piercing. It's not our favorite.
She has eight teeth.
She calls all food "nanana". She will eat just about anything, but I think her favorite food is still cheese. She likes fruits and veggies. She's just starting to get pickier about eating. I'm hoping it won't continue.
She loves her brothers and sister and will crawl after them to try and keep up with the big kids.
Here's a few pictures from her big day.
Her cake looked better in person, I promise. :)
We love you, Audrey! Thanks for being part of our family!!
