Busy Week!

Well, my parents were in town the past week, and boy did we have fun!Audia had all kinds of new experiences this week, and I must say that while she was definitely a bit overstimulated by the end of the week, she did a lot better than I guessed she would. Apparently I don't give her enough credit :-)

Not only did she have her first ever restaurant experience, but she had three restaurant experiences! She met her second cousin once removed, Brenton, for the second time, which was fun. They are pretty close in age, and Audia had fun stealing all of his toys while he watched. LOL.

We also went to the Botanical Gardens to take in some butterflies and Chihuly. She, of course, wanted to put the glass and butterflies in her mouth.
To add to the hecticness of the week, Coopy came home this week too. He's been staying with Chris' mom since January to keep her company, but she is heading back to Illinois this weekend so he's back with us for good now. It was really fun to see Cooper and Audia get reacquainted, and probably quite a shock for Cooper since Audia is so much more mobile now than she was the last time he saw her!!
My parents were amazed at how far she's come since they saw her in December. She really is growing like a weed, and she is more and more vocal by the day. She has also started reaching for me if I come up to her when someone else is holding her, which just melts my heart!!
We were sad to see my parents leave this morning, but we've locked into moving out to MN the first week of May, so it will be less than a month until we're all together again - the way it should be!



I love the picture of Cooper kissing Audia! Cracks me up! :)

And Yay for the official move date! You'll have to let us know if you need any thing or if there is anything we can do to help!

We had fun too. Hope we didn't push Audia's limits too much, but I think that's what grandparents are for. We can hardly wait to be able to see her LOTS more often!
