Birthday Girl

My little girl turned 2!  In honor of her favorite t.v. character, we had a Barney birthday party complete with a purple cake.  We ate pizza, played a few games, opened presents and ate cake.  It was a great night.

All of Audrey's cousins were there.

And Bailey was such a little sweetheart getting passed around from grandma to grandma.

On a totally unrelated topic, I had to add this picture:

Audrey is wearing my "hooter-hider" (it's exactly what you think it is).  She has taken to feeding her babies underneath it like a good little mommy.  I love this girl!!!

New Arrival

When my contractions started getting worse on Monday evening, we brought Audrey over to my mom's house to put her to sleep there.  She knew something was going on, because she kept asking us to "turn around please" on our way there.  As soon as she fell asleep, we left for the hospital.

Four hours later, at 2:19 a.m. on January 29th, Bailey May Valentine joined our family.  She was 8 pounds 12 oz and 21 1/2 inches long.  We just love her mushy cheeks!!

 While we were able to convince Audrey to give Bailey a kiss upon meeting her, that was about all we could get out of her. She had no desire to hold her...she even said, "no, don't want her" one of the times we asked her to.  But no worries, her spirit changed as soon as we came home - asking to hold her as soon as we walked through the door.

Bailey and her cousin, Juliette; they're only 7 weeks apart!

We are excited, and totally freaked out, to be a family of four!
