Yesterday was Audrey's very first time swimming!!!
We decided not to go to the lake because its hot and sandy. Audrey usually doesn't do to well when we're there anyways. Andrews University has an indoor pool in which brad and audrey are free. I am 3 dollars. Its heated too! anyways she did extremely well, she's a natural swimmer like her daddy!!! She loves water! just as long as its warm though :)
another exciting event.... AUDREY LAUGHED!!!! Mommy was getting ready do go out for some thai food and all of sudden i hear a squeaky giggle. Daddy was making her laugh so loud and so much! Mommy only got the last of her laughing BUT THEN WHEN UPLOADING THEM I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED THE VIDEO!!!!! so very very very very upset. just have to wait for the next time... :(
well keeep you guys all updating for more!!!! here is a video of her swimming....***not working right now so will upload it later

Haven't written in a while because well..nothing exciting has happened! let me think...
We had a nice picnic with daddy's classmates at shaunna's house. Mommy made some of daddy's favorite jello "casserole." Everyone wanted to hold her and play with her. she was feeling really loved and was upset when we had to leave. Well ... i assume because she cried when we put her in the carseat.. hehe. Then off to Dr. Harvey.
Audrey went to the doctors on the tenth of this month and got her vaccines...:( Of course she cried and mommy had to soothe her by nursing her. She didn't really have any of the symptoms till the next day. She was very fussy, diarrhea, and her leg kept swelling up. That lasted for about 3 days and now she gets a little warm. So we're keeping a close eye on her this week. I hope she gets better soon.. we're going to iowa on Saturday night!!!
Good news about the appointment is Audrey is growing marvelously! She is 24 inches in height and weighs 12lbs and 9 oz. The height in definitely in the 90th percentile and her weight is in the 75 th percentile! Daddy is hoping she will play in the NBA....HA!
Audrey is getting stronger... holding up her head really well now and is sitting up with support! she sometimes wants to STAND!! she's a crazy lil' devil :)
Yesterday Audrey had her first babysitter: Shaunna! Daddy and Mommy went out for a date (movie and a dinner). Mommy was freaking out the whole time because Audrey has been fussier than normal because of the vaccines. BUT she was an angel for shaunna and we're so thankful that Shaunna was nice enough to do that for us!
Now we're trying to prepare for our trip to iowa! Maybe hit the beach later today!

sniff sniff** again audrey is proving her independence by sleeping the night in her crib!!!!!! I seriously cried before going to bed, brad thought i was crazy LOL... She did pretty good... okay extremely well!!! Its like she never knew her mommy sleep 10 inches from her bassinet. Okay... i'm ready to let her go ... move on.. to the next room. :) its sooo not fair!!! hahaha
Audrey is learning how to support her head... she pretty much has it down but sometimes she gets a little lazy.. hahaha. Daddy makes sure to exercise with her everyday. They do a little rolling, a little bit of push ups, and they practice sitting up. Usually after this "work out" Audrey falls asleep in a flash.
I"m so blessed with a beautiful family!! God is good!!

Lets pretend that the weekend started on Thursday! :)
Thursday: Mommy and Daddy (& audrey) were invited to go blowing with John, Katrina, Rob and Kensey!! We all pretty much did terrible that day and I will fail mention the horrible scores! hehe Afterwards we ate altogether at Qdoba and had tons just making jokes and telling stories.
Friday: We did our weekly grocery shopping together. We cleaned the house for the sabbath. Mommy got to print out pictures and using them to put together Audrey's scrapbook!! yah!!! its looking really cute and can't wait to see the finish result!!
Saturday: Went to Sabbath school and Audrey was awake for the whole time!! She seems to be more aware of everything that was going on!! we can't wait till she can participate without mommy holding everything for her!! Mommy and Audrey also signed up for VBS!!! YAH!!! we are so excited!! During the Second service, Audrey made a new friend and they "played" together! After Church we went back home to have lunch and took a wonderful sabbath nap!! Around 8 we decided to go to the lake and have worship there and wait until the fireworks started. WELLLL!!!! little did we know the fireworks weren't going to start until 10:45...!!!!!
Yeaaaaaa... not a good idea to take a baby to a beach with fireworks whennnn it was her bedtime, it was humid but COLD, Mosquitos were everywhere and sand was getting on everything!!! she was very very fussy... so we had to leave right when the fireworks started. But while walking to the car we actually got to see all the fireworks and the grand finale!! so we didn't really miss out on anything!! and to top it off we beat the immense traffic getting out of town!! Audrey was REALLY easy to put to sleep after that and slept a wonderful 7 hours!!!!
Milestone of the week: Audrey sat up with daddy for a good 5 seconds!!!!!! and is growing A LOT!!!!

Sorry I haven't updated this in the last couple days, Mommy has been busy trying to finish school and be a good housewife HEHE!!
Here in Michigan the weather has been quite chilly. I don't understand why this is so when its SUMMER!!! I hate it because I'm less motivated when its gloomy and cloudy outside! I need the sun to give me energy! anyways..
Audrey and Mommy went for a walk (a couple days ago), just the two of us. Usually we go as a family but mommy needed some fresh air... after reading True Education by EGW... all you want is to be in God's nature. She also sat in the stroller... we didn't use the carseat!! She's getting to be a big baby now! :)
That same day audrey took her nap, for the first time, in her room and in her crib!!!!! It wasn't a very long nap, but its a small step closer! Audrey has also entertained her parents by pooping .... no more like squirting... all over them!!! Its hilarous but MAN that poop leaves stains!!! Again not a lot going on, since both mommy and papa are busy right now. Audrey can sense it and demands our attention!! hehehe She is so darling... grandma deedee pointed out that this might be a clue to her Love Language... Quality time!!! So Audrey's personality is surely developing more and more everyday.
I will post a video of her smiling with mommy.
May God Bless...and Pray for us as we finish school!
