Dr. Appointment!

Audrey had her 2 month appointment this morning and the girl has been doing some serious growing! She is in the 50% for weight at 10lbs 10.5oz and in 90%(!) for height at 23.5inches!!! She's grown 4.5 inches since she's been born! Long & lean...supermodeldom here we come :) The doctor said she has very strong legs and will probably walk early (you know, to practice her catwalk!) She took her shots well...more tears from me, I think. I'm a very proud mama today!!!

2 Months...& Santa!

Audrey is 2 months old today...all I can say is WOW! So much has changed since she's been born! She is one happy baby, that's for sure. She smiles ALL of the time, and I even caught her giggling at Hays yesterday. Poor dog was yacking up something and apparently that's funny in Audrey's world. We weighed her this morning and she came in at 10lbs 10.5oz which means she's gained 4lbs since leaving the hospital. And as special treat for mom and dad, Audrey slept from 9:30pm to 7am last night...Good girl! I really think the key to her sleeping so well is the swaddling blanket, it's basically a straight jacket, but it keeps her comfy cozy :) Since she's all tucked in at night, this how she likes to nap during the day...
And Audrey went to see santa last's a picture of a picture. It's nice to see one of them looking at the camera! And if you look real close, you'll see Audrey's got something to say to all the non-believers!

What do we think of the new layout?

There are tons to chose from at that link up in the lefthand corner...

In sleeping news: Audrey slept 8 hours straight last night!!!!!!!!!!

Also, we are leaving our sweet baby girl for the 1st time this weekend to attend a wedding in South Bend. I'm incredibly nervous, but am really looking forward to enjoying some adult beverages and dancing with my husband, Ben "i can really cut a rug" Cooke, ha ha ha.

I'll try to upload some pics, but blogger doesn't like me so we'll see :)

Smiles :)

Audrey just loves to smile...she's been doing it since about 4 weeks! Here's a great shot we got...

And the last month went where?

Seriously, I can't believe Audrey is 1 month already! She is turning into a little person right before our eyes :) We've learned that she hates her swing, but loves her car seat, not loving tummy time, but put her on her back facing the mirror and she'll entertain herself for a good 1/2 hour!! And for some odd reason, she loves being on her changing table...that's where I get the most smiles (yes, she's smiling!) from her. Plus, she gives us a nice 5 hour stretch of sleep at night, these days...can't ask for much more :)
And here are some more pics from the last month...

She's Here!

And no, she's not 9 days late...Audrey Eileen Cooke was born at 6:03am on 10/11/08. I actually went into labor right after I posted last, so maybe blogging induces labor?? She was 7.6lbs and 19 inches. and now some pics of our beatiful baby girl...

It's 10/10....where are you???

She is already taking after me...late for everything! If she doesn't come on her own soon, I'm being induced on 10/15. Next post will be the big one!

I'm bored and feel like there is a toddler rolling around in there so I decided to make a countdown ticker...
NestBaby Pregnancy Ticker

Seeing the days tick off makes me feel better :)

Added 12/4/08: I wonder how long "the bump" let's the pregnancy tickers go on... what am I, an elephant?
