Audrey's baby dedication at our church was on August 15th. It was such a beautiful day for us. We were so proud to have Audrey dedicated and hope that we are able to help cultivate a love for Jesus in her as our parents and church families did for us. All the family on both sides were able to attend, so Audrey was a pretty popular girl that morning. She is so blessed to have so many people who love her so much. Both of Audrey's great-grandmothers were able to be there with us which is a memory I know we will always treasure. We are so thankful God chose to bless us with Audrey Elizabeth and I know He has a special plan for her life.

Buddy never gets too far away from his little Audrey. He is such a good dog and is so gentle with her. We have to watch them closely because Audrey is all over Buddy all the time, more to protect him than her! She loves him as much as he loves her. She is always petting him and trying to hug him. She even tries to get him to wear her crown and one time I found her attempting to put high heels on him. Good thing he is such a pleasant dog!

Audrey was a year and half on June 26th. This post is late because I have been having camera issues all summer. So even though she is nineteen and half months old now, I didn't want to let this milestone pass with a post. I cannot believe our baby girl is a year and half! This has been the best 18 months of our lives and we are still in awe of the fact that we actually have her. Just last night as I was getting her out of her bath, it hit me again how thankful and blessed I am to have her and I got a little teary-eyed. Seeing family and friends whose kids are graduating and heading off to college makes me realize how precious these times are and I intend to cherish them. We love you so much sweet Audrey, happy year and half birthday!!!

Just one example of Audrey in a precarious position. This one was not so dangerous that I minded grabbing my camera to take a picture. Our little one is a monkey! She climbs on any and everything. So far, her most worrisome feats have been the climb onto the dining room table, onto her highchair tray, and out of her baby bed. We had moved her mattress to the lowest possible setting and figured there was no way she could climb out because the top rail is above her chest when she stands in the bed. How wrong we were! One night she just walked into the living room. We put her back in bed and asked her how she got out and she proudly demonstrated. We never really figured out what happens after the part where she is on her tummy straddling the top rail because it was so scary I just grabbed her off, but our guess is that she just falls to the floor. So needless to say, we now have a toddler bed and are working on getting everything in her room ready for her to be sleeping unconfined. I can only imagine how that is going to go....
This is what Audrey does when I am in the kitchen cooking or cleaning (I do a lot more cleaning than cooking!). She has the most fun getting into the cabinet with the pots and pans or sitting right inside the refrigerator door taking stuff out and putting it back in.
