Welcome Audrey Elise

Oh, little girl, we've been ready and WAITING for you! We're so glad you finally joined us. We have to admit, we tried to help. Here are some of the ways:

We tried rubbing you out of Bridget's belly.

Charlie tried pulling you out from under Bridget's shirt (even though he was convinced that there wasn't a baby under there, but a big bouncy ball that Aunt Bridget wouldn't let him play with.),

AND he tried blowing you out.

Your brother Jack tried hugging you out.

Daphne tried stomping you out.

Bridget gave birth to you at 1:27 AM, this morning- May 30th, 2009, after 9 hours of labor. What a trooper Bridget is- she delivered all 8 lbs 11oz of you!!

These two will gladly relinquish their role as the youngest cousins to you, sweet girl.

We know you two will be best of friends.
With only 4 months between you two, we will quickly see this vast difference disappear.

Welcome to the family, sweet girl. We are so happy to have you here with us.

Just a little doting

We were able to have Daphne's Grandma Linda and Grandpa Paul in town two weeks ago and it's fair to say that she was just a little spoiled. Here are just a few of the fun shots of our weekend.

She LOVES this Grandparent to baby ratio!!

Four doting adults for her favorite swim time... also known as her bath.

A mommy that doesn't mind her girl talk.

Her Grandpa Paul and her favorite book of all time- Rainbow Rob! What is better than that?

Dancing to Elvis with her Grandma Linda to end the night. Life is good...

larger than life

I guess my gal has some big stakes to keep up. Apparently she's on the "high" end... so, don't bring your 4 month old too close to mine because she might just take her out!

Here are her 4 month stats:
Weight: 96% (16 lbs 9.75 oz)

Height: 94% (25.75 in)

Head Circumference: 95% (43.25 cm)

At least she's proportional!!

(you know she's thinking... "did you really just post those first pictures?? come ON mom!")

Mommy's little helper- Laundry

Laundry according to Daphne--

Step 1: Let Mommy wash the clothes.

Step 2: Analyze fibers intensely.

Step 3: Consume Ravenously.

I guess it's the thought that counts, right?

Mother's day

I'm so glad she made me a momma!

last of the 3 months

So, here are the last shots of the Babies R Us shoot.

It started out like this ...

Then slowly she thought, "why are we doing another?"

Then, "do you have to do another??"

Till finally, "seriously, Mom, enough with the pictures!"

(maybe I'm twisted, but I LOVE this crying picture... so much emotion for such a little peanut!)

I think we're going to have our hands full when she's older, what do you think?
