We took a whirlwind trip to Houston to go see some old friends. We are so happy Chris, Abbey and Ellie are back home for the summer and are actually subletting our old house in Houston! We got together last night with the email group for some fun--how our girls' nights have changed. What used to be late nights at Collina's or Barnaby's are now all out playgroups with a ton of kids. Here's a cute pic of Sara and Julie meeting Clark for the first time and Ellie, Audrey and Isabella on our old front steps. (Macy missed out--she was home with her grandmom.) I thought Audrey might remember our old digs but I don't think she did at all. A lot has changed in our re-gentrifying neighborhood in the last ten months.

Audrey learned how to play Guitar Hero from her Mom's countless hours playing. She's even so advanced that she now can play with her teeth. I bet Jimi Hendrix wasn't doing that at her age. Also to dispute claims that Clark lives in the bouncer, here is a pic of him on his floor gym. (Every now and then the batteries have to be changed out of the bouncer). Sorry Pat, but Audrey slobbered on your guitar.
Quick cute story: Yesterday Audrey wanted some milk while I was nursing Clark. So in typical toddler fashion, she started chanting, "I want milk, I want milk." Five times in a row I told her, "Sure, Audrey, I'll fix it in five minutes." She still kept repeating herself, whining, "I want milk" over and over again, so I just ignored her. She climbed up in the recliner still saying it and then pushed down on my chin so my mouth would open and said, "Talk, mommy. I want milk! Talking! Talking! I want milk! Talking!"

As Clark cried this afternoon, Audrey grabbed him and said that he was hungry. She lifted up her shirt and put him up to her chest. After a couple of seconds, she pulled him away and said "good burt," meaning good burp. Kind of disturbing but I couldn't stop laughing.

What better birthday present for Gigi today then to spend it with her grandkids. Grandma Audrey and Grandpa got to see Clark for the first time. We also found out today that he weighs 12 lb 2 oz, so he's packing on the pounds. Audrey loved swimming in the pool that Granddad and Gigi brought her. She played in it for about an hour and a half.
