We are expanding. Literally. And figuratively. Our family and our horizons. We want to share our experiences along the way and preserve the memories. Watch us grow, hopefully in more ways than one.

That's about how many minutes old Audrey is today. (For those of you who can't do math without a calculator, that's 6 months.)
She's pretty excited about how big she's getting...
Two months ago...
A few days ago...
And oh, so much fun!
LET'S DO THE NUMBERS
Weighs 15lbs (43rd percentile) and is 27.75 inches long (off the chart).
Outgrown all of her 3 months clothes and is stretching the 6 month stuff too. Today, she wore a 12 month onesie and "toddler" sized socks to daycare.
Rolling over front to back and back to front and sleeping on her tummy some nights.
Can sit up on her own for a few minutes if she wants to (though she seems to prefer falling onto her side and laughing about it).
Eating (and loving) rice cereal, applesauce, smashed bananas, and mashed sweet potatoes. Next on the menu is avocado, peas and peaches. All (except the rice cereal) homemade, thank-you-very-much.
We're still into breastfeeding, which I'm super duper proud of, and the freezer is bursting at the seems with frozen milk. I promised myself (and Audrey) that I'd give it six months. Now that six months is here, I'm not really ready to stop just yet. So, we'll keep at it a little longer.
Tonight, we're going to turn up the sound machine, turn down the monitor, don the earplugs and try to let her cry-it-out so we can end the 3am feeding. I think I'm going to miss that time with her. But I'm going to appreciate the extra sleep. I think that she ultimately will too.
Oh, one other important number? 125. That's me, in lbs, this morning, back at my pre-pregnancy weight.
