Sometimes you try...

And it's a huge failure. Audrey isn't ready for a toddler bed yet!! They sure did look cute trying, though!

And so it goes

I  am cleaning like a mad woman in preparation for my in-laws to visit. It is reminding me of my mom doing the same to prepare for my grandma (dad's mom) to arrive. I remember telling my mom, "grandma knows we are messy. What's the point?". And so it comes full circle. I get it now, mom...I get it.

She's growing up...

Audrey has increasingly begun to call me "mom" instead of mommy or mama. I can tell that she's trying the word on for size, watching for my reaction with some sort of understanding that this is a "big girl" word. 

She is very verbal in general, and here are some of her expressions, at just under 2 years:

"Mommy, watch! This is amazing!"
"No, mommy, that's not it. That's SILLY!"

Audrey is so constantly full of expression and it always makes my heart full.
