|Doesn't she look so big?|
Audrey turns 11 months old tomorrow. A year ago I was five weeks away and completely exhausted. I had just stopped working out at the gym because I was too tired (sadly, I've only gone to the gym ONCE since then. Wow), and I had just begun experiencing ankle-swelling when I overexerted myself. That feels like so recent, its hard to believe its been a year. I've started planning Audrey's first birthday party, and will hopefully get invitations in the mail sometime in the next week. I just need to get a good photo to use. And I need to make better use of my time, because it turns out that planning a first birthday is a big deal. It is for me, anyways. I think I'm going a little over the top for a birthday that she'll never remember, but this is kind of an "OMG we actually survived the first year" party for Josh and I, too. That alone deserves some serious partying.
Audrey is talking nonstop these days. She isn't saying any real words, but she repeatedly says, "ah-DAH!" to everything. She changes the tone of her voice like she's asking a question, or making a statement, or hollering across the house, but everything is ah-DAH! Ah-dah, ah-dah, ah-dah. I'll have to get that on video.
I hope you are all enjoying the slowness that August brings!
