For my birthday on Saturday we celebrated with a hike up Mt. Monadnock. Audrey did a great job - she sat happily in her pack on Chris' back making happy noises, smiling at the other hikers and babbling the whole way.

When we reached the summit, Audrey took a little snooze (it's EXHAUSTING climbing a mountain).
Kudos to Chris who carried her on his back the whole way and still said it was "easy".

Audrey took her first couple steps "by herself" last night. Looks like this might be a new favorite toy.

A "Big" 7 Month Old

Audrey is 7 1/2 months old!And boy have things changed around here in the last month or so.

Audrey doesn't take baths in the bathroom sink anymore, but I like this picture so much I thought I'd share.

She had her first visit to the Gardner Fire Station, where my dad works. She thought she was so cool.

She has been crawling and standing up on EVERYTHING.

For some reason she always wants to bite on this knob.

Yes...she is chewing on a bone..and loving it.

She is a really happy girl. What you can't tell in this picture is that she is actually screaming right now. That's how she laughs. She just gives a high-pitched squeal.
