Audrey finally likes to jump!

Will bought Audrey a Johnny Jumper before Christmas. Even though she would try to bounce in her exersaucer, she hated the jumper. We tried again and she loved it!

Audrey got some new diapers today. They are Haute OS pockets. We'll have to see if we like them as well as Bumgenius.

Finished the first week

Well we made it through our first week back. It was busy and we're all tired tonight. Audrey's been a bit cranky. She seems to be missing Daddy a lot. She wouldn't go to sleep tonight until Will laid down with her. She normally puts herself to sleep. We have a busy weekend ahead of us with Will and I both needing to work. On a positive note, my grades from last semester are starting to come out. So far it's shaping up to be my best semester yet. Yeah!

Back to School

This week I started back to school. On Monday Audrey stayed home with Aunt Sam and Aunt Jackie. Today she went to daycare and had a ton of fun with all her friends. So far I'm keeping up with all my reading and daily chores. But it's only the second day . . .

Last night Will went out with his friends, so after Audrey went to sleep I baked bread! I used Suze's recipe. It is so good. As you can see there is a piece missing :)

We're kicking the bucket.

Here's Audrey in her new big girl car seat. Now we just need to get Daddy to install it.

Amanda's Baked Ziti

Tonight I made Amanda's Baked Ziti minus the sour cream. It was so good! Rave reviews all around.

Audrey the Flying Ace

This video is older, but oh so cute! Sorry about the quality. It was shot on our camera before we got our new video camera from Nana and Grandpa John.

Cotton Babies

Today Audrey and I took a drive to Cotton Babies, a cloth diapering store in South County. We got a new BG, a new Bummis diaper cover, 2 pairs of baby legs and a pair of Roobez. It was a fun afternoon!

Here's Audrey playing in her new baby legs, and our new diapers

New Years Resolution

I normally don't make resolutions. I can't remember ever making one before. But this year I needed to. Our lives were way too hectic leading up to Christmas with my finals and everything else. Our house was a mess and we were eating out way too much. We also got way too much for Christmas (well mostly just Audrey did).
So we are in desperate need of organization. We bought some bins and are going to buy some shelves. We started daily and weekly chore lists. We are going to be doing weekly meal planning. So far the daily chore list has been going really well. Will has been helping me every evening before we relax after dinner. The weekly chore list needs more work. Last week I was the only one who checked anything off. Hopefully with a little gentle proding Will and Andy will step up this week. By the way, Andy is my little brother and he lives with us. I've been cooking at home a lot too. Wish us luck!

I'm starting this blog so that all of our friends and family can keep up with us and watch Audrey grow. I'm also starting this blog so my friends can stalk me. Stalk away girls! My name is Shannon. I'm 28 and a third year law student. My husband is Will. He's 31 and a plumber. We have been married since May, 2005. We have a beautiful 9 month old daughter named Audrey Jane. We lead a pretty busy life, but it's always fun! I have never blogged before, so we'll see how this goes.
