On Monday, my Audrey will turn 9 months old. That means that she's been out virtually as long as she was in (unless you are getting picky and then 40 weeks actually = 10 months but let's not get technical). The past 9 months have been a ride, a great ride. We've had our good times and our tough times but mostly we've enjoyed every second with this happy, sweet little girl.
Things seem to be going fast than they did with Bethany. Moments don't last as long, stages are hardly a blip and somewhere along the way it seems the baby in her is starting to fade and I don't know when that started. It might have something to do with the fact that this time around I have 2 precious princesses, both changing in leaps and bounds making their Momma feel old. Or it might have something to do with the fact that I am getting old.
Whatever it is, it is and I try, on a daily basis to remind myself to savour the moments. The ones like this one. You see, Audrey is growing quickly and while she's an ultra happy baby she's also one who knows what she likes. My Audrey Bella, don't just whimper if something doesn't go her way, no she'll let out a heartbreaking wail and then stop and wait patiently for you to comply with her demand.
The newest of the demands is that she wants to be on her feet. No more sitting or exersaucer for this kid. She wants to be standing, on the floor, on your lap, where ever. And while she can't quite figure it out on her own, she's getting pretty good if you hang onto her hands.
She's a little wobbly, but standing and walking are her new favorite deal. Last night, while in the middle of a whole house clean, we decided to take a break for a family dance time. It rivals Dancing with the Stars as you've seen on more than one occasion, and last night I managed to grab my camera and capture a little of Audrey's new skillz.

She was having so much fun, and so were we! It's so funny, every time I see her doing her "thang" it reminds me of the Weebles. Do you remember those guys? You know, "Weebles Wobble but they don't fall down". No? Ahem, like I said, OLD!
Anyways, hope you enjoyed and have a great weekend!
