Little Audrey Eleanor in her clothes that are way too big. At the moment, we only have about 3 outfits that really fit her, so when she spilled milk all over her last outfit (at 3am) I was scrambling to find something that fit her so we could all go back to bed. In the morning I could hear her fussing. She wasn't desperate so I let her fuss a bit (and steal a few minutes extra sleep!). Phil got up to check on her and he started cracking up. He found our poor girl with the hat over her whole face except for her mouth. She was pretty frustrated. haha Don't worry, we eventually found a hat that fits.
Afternoon cuddles and baby feet. Two of my favorite things!
I made myself a mock Moby wrap to carry Audrey in. It's awesome! More on this soon!
This weekend we celebrated Phil's Oma's 80th birthday. It was a big family to-do and I had an excuse to dress up and wear my favorite boots. It felt really good being up and out and dressed up!
I baked some cupcakes for the 4th of July and discovered my new favorite icing. It's a plum cream cheese frosting. I'd share the recipe, but really you just add 2-4 tablespoons of a jam of your choice to a regular cream cheese frosting. It's amazing. Try it.
Happy 4th of July folks! Enjoy the warmer weather and patriotic celebrations. I'll just be here in New Zealand being a little bit jealous (but not too jealous because we're still having a BBQ and cupcakes)
Speaking of which... next year, we've decided to celebrate Thanksgiving on the 4th and the 4th on Thanksgiving. I know it sounds crazy, but I like the idea. Celebrating the 4th of July in winter just seems so wrong.
P.S. - Happy 3 weeks to Audrey Eleanor! I'll post her 3 week pictures tomorrow. ♥
