Today and every day I’m thankful for Kenji’s love and support, our families, great friends, and our wonderful baby girl.
We celebrated the holiday today with Kenji’s family, at his sister’s house. Audrey had fun with her cousins Claire and Henry, and she seemed to enjoy her first Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing.
She looked so cute in the dress made by auntie Jess and her (too big) tights.
I hope everyone had a great day with family and friends!
Today marks Audrey’s nine-month birthday! Our sweet little girl gets more active, adventurous, and curious each day. She delights in shadows, our cat, Cheerios, tummy tickles, her fingers, standing (and crawling between places to stand), and so many other discoveries and explorations.
She’s learned how to climb up the jungle gym steps at the playground (with daddy’s help).
Her favorite new vocal technique is shrieking. (Yes, we did have the TV on, for Sunday football. But that’s the only television she’s ever watched!)
Eating is one of Audrey’s favorite pastimes. We’re experimenting with finger foods now; she’s gotten quite adept at feeding herself Cheerios, and had good luck with carrots too.
I could go on and on…but instead, I’ll promise another update soon!
