New Swing Position

This is the pose that Clark now uses when he sleeps in his swing. Needless to say, I buckle him in now.

A star is born.

Here's Audrey singing an original song. As you can see, she sings best with continuous applause from the audience. In the background you can check out her new awesome kitchen from Bebe and Pop.

Pumpkin Patch

Audrey and her friends went to a Pumpkin Patch. Audrey was beaming when she showed me her pumpkin for the first time.

A nasty new habit...

Much to our dismay, Audrey has started experimenting with lying. Luckily she is not very good at it.

Yesterday she was upstairs playing alone in her room and I heard her go into the bathroom and start messing around in there. She knows that washing her hands by herself is not allowed--she makes a huge mess and either uses no water at all (just soap) or so much water that she looks like she took a bath. So I headed upstairs to investigate.

She heard me coming and ran downstairs. When she saw me she said, "It's not soap, Momma, it's cereal on my hands," showing me her hands coated in a clear, soap-smelling goo.

I said, "Are you sure? It looks and smells like soap. Before you answer me, tell me, what happens when you tell a lie?"

She stuck her bottom lip out and recited, "Big trouble."

"And what happens when you tell the truth?"

"Mercy." (I stole this from an Angela Thomas video I saw this summer--works great!)

"So, do you want to tell me again what's on your hands?"

She blurted out, "it IS soap, Momma! Will you 'give me Momma?" Translation: Will you forgive me?

Of course I melted on the spot. Josh and I have discussed this and we have decided that it's scientifically impossible not to melt when she says this.

Molly's Birthday

Molly turned one and had a great birthday party. She has been a wonderful addition to our family and a real blessing. Audrey is absolutely crazy about her.

On a side note, I do think Molly is training to be a competitive eater. It's unbelievable how much she can eat.


Audrey still loves Molly just as much as she did a year ago.

Congrats (again!) Pop!

Yesterday Bebe and Pop flew to Washington for Malcolm to accept another award...this time the Attorney General's award for Distinguished Service for his work prosecuting a company intentionally dumping sludge.

Our Camera is back

We finally received our lens to our camera. So we are back in the picture taking business. Clark slept through the night last night, which is a first. Hopefully he enjoyed it so much that this trend will continue.

In this picture, Audrey sure looks like she's up to something.
