About Me

Hi! I'm Abby. My husband, Carl, and I are happily married since October 2007. Our little family of 2 (well, 3 if you count Chief, the dog) added one more in October 2011 when we welcomed Audrey Elizabeth, our first child into the world. Our life was forever changed. And to add to the joy and excitement, we added another daughter, Clara Marie, in May 2014. I wanted to create this blog originally to document all the milestones throughout my pregnancy with Audrey so we could remember that special time in our lives. And now I get to write all about Audrey and Clara and our life with these amazing "Larson Ladies", which is so much more fun!

Audrey is 11 months old!

Can you see my top 2 teeth?

Weight:  22.5 lbs (approx)

Clothes:  12 months & 18 months (12-18 months)

Diaper:  size 4

Food:  I believe that 22.5lbs is in the 90 percentile for 11 months - wow!  Needless to say, Audrey is a really good eater.  :)  Seriously, she will eat anything she can get her hands on.  Tonight I was eating a cheeseburger while she was having her "dinner bottle", and she was pretty persistent about having pieces of my cheeseburger.  She's had a lot of table food over this past month:  steak, chicken, soft vegetables, fruit, taco meat, lettuce, cheese, bread.  Really anything I'm eating, she gets to taste.  She even had more birthday cake this month as we celebrated my birthday.  1 more month and she'll be eating her own cake!

Sleep:  Audrey, again this month, was a consistent sleeper!  She's still sleeping very well from 8pm to 6am (sometimes longer on the weekends!) every night.  And she's napping pretty consistently, too.  She's been sleeping at least 90 minutes during naptime recently.  That's really good for her.  She is on-the-go constantly during the day... I think she wears herself out!  

Teeth:  Audrey now has her front 2 teeth on the top and 4 on the bottom...6 teeth total!  About 2 weeks ago, Audrey's b.m.'s were really loose and consistently leaking/exploding out of her diapers.  Even the big diapers!  There were many outfit changes, some extra baths, and many "you got this one" arguments between Carl and me! Oh, I'm just kidding... it was a team effort.  ;)

Here is a video from this past month.  Just a typical night at our house... Audrey wanted to show us all of her tricks!

Maci Whetstone turned 2 on August 18th, and Audrey and I went down to their house in Maroa for the party.  It was the first time that Maci, Audrey, and Colby Marr were together.  Look how well they played together!  
Note: It is impossible to get a picture of all 3
paying attention at the same time!

The party was a safari theme. Loved Maci's
giraffe headband and cute dress!

On Labor Day, we spent our day off at the Brookfield Zoo with Adam and Laura Hardy and their twins.  It really was a lot of fun!  Audrey is such a people watcher that she cared more about the kids and people than she did about the animals.

Audrey started swim lessons this month at the Lockport Park District.  She loves the pool, doesn't mind going under water, and loves chewing on the rubber ducky toys.

(Sorry the video is sideways... I can't find a way to "flip" it)
