Sugar and spice and everything nice.........

Over the last few posts James has gotten most of the publicity and rightly so. The only drama Audrey has going on in her little life (thankfully) is that James won't share and she doesn't always get what she wants when she wants it, like caaaake! However, Audrey does love attention so I figured I'd let our little peach get back in the spot light for a day!! She has really grown up since we moved and it's just not fair, although it is fun to watch and be a part of!! If you look up the word "ham" in the dictionary you'll see a big ol' picture of Miss Audrey Grace! She loves to laugh, make people laugh and just have a darn good time with everything she does. Oh how I pray that she is blessed to keep this carefree, just lovin life spirit that she has. AND if it's possible she gets more beautiful every single day. If her mama and daddy weren't smitten before........She continues to tend to her brother like a little mother hen, constantly bringing him things she knows he wants or needs. The other day (with out me telling her to) she took him the first grape I handed her and came back for hers. Bless her little heart, it's like she knows she can get around faster than him! It's precious to watch her be so loving towards him. But she still has her girly fits and slaps him in the head when he makes her mad! She continues to wipe things up when she spots a mess and believe it or not she actually helps me put the clothes into the dryer. Her little voice can melt the stoniest of hearts and it keeps getting more and more southern with each passing day. You have to watch out 'cause she is a little mocking bird lately, repeating just about every new word she hears. Just this morning when I asked her if she had poo-poo she grabbed her diaper and said "poo-poo" just like she'd been saying it all along. She's a hoot.She also has this new found obsession with rocks. Big rocks, little rocks; she'll find a rock any where and keep it in the palm of her hand for as long as she can. Ha, today I saw this black lump on the floor in James' room and started screaming. I just knew it was poo-poo but upon closer examination, I found it was just a rock!! I wonder how it got there!! She is a wanderer. She is never still, ever. Only when she sleeps. When she is watching a movie, she's constantly in and out of the room. When we go out in the yard she doesn't stay with the group. Saturday while we were testing out their new pool, she must have gotten in and out of it 50 times and made two complete rounds around the back yard (we have a big yard people!) and the funniest thing to watch is that she is not in a hurry while doing this. She just meanders around, checking things out. The best part about her is how much she loves me and Jon. She does a little jig every afternoon when her daddy gets home and she tends to have serious melt downs when I leave a room and she can't come with me. It's a joy and a blessing and a big adventure to be her parents and we are loving every single minute of it!!!

Oh my word! How smart IS Peach?!?! I can't BELIEVE she's old enough to know all those tricks!
I always think of poor Jamesy walking on his little knees, but BOY, is he fast!! He is so animated and just adorable!
The kiss was my absolute favorite! They love each other so much! Ugh this week can't go by any slower! Dying for the weekend to see those sweet "be-bes". Love!

And, you are a joy and a blessing to me, to us, and I am loving EVERY minute of...your posts, 'manda.

Good job! Audrey is SO precious and, yes, her voice is sweetly southern.

May God bless your socks off...every day!

Okay - you know how you always say Hannah looks just like me? Well, watching that was just like watching our old home videos!! The way she was rolling around on the chair was so much like the one where you're rolling on the couch and we're attempting to sing "Wells Fargo". You know, I think it's second child syndrome that makes them act like that. Seems like all the second children I know are defenders of the older child, soooooooo loving when they want to be, and soooooooooo rotten and hard headed when they don't get their own way. But the most outstanding trait they all seem to posses is PERSONALITY!! :0) Love ya, Betsy

PLEASE stop! My heart can't take it! This is so wonderful. Absolutely made my day. BUT...don't torture that baby with food words UNLESS you can reward her on demand with a sample of that particular food. For example, give her some CAKE!!! Or at least a bite of peach!
Can't wait to see my brilliant babies this weekend!
(and the kiss was a killer!)

Oh my goodness, how precious is she!?!

I can't believe how grown-up Miss Audrey is. Where does the time go?

Gabriela sends milky drool y'alls way . . . sorry, she hasn't made it to kisses yet.

My precious Amanda Grace,
This video reminds me SO much of you........many moons ago......(maybe not THAT many moons!, so don't start feeling old and ancient)........I agree with Betsy on the 'second child syndrome' that Little Audrey seems to be acquiring.........hey, it reminds me of my Shannon. Think about it.....that smilin' "I love life" attitude and hard headed as can be if needed. Ha ha. Audrey is absolutely precious just like her Mama. I love the "kiss".......you can tell she adores her brother.....as it should be.
Hug James and Audrey for me......give them both kisses, and tell them I love them. They are getting old enough now to understand stuff like that! So, I will be sending weekly messages to them now !

I love you, Amanda Grace, and I am SO proud of you and the wonderful "Mama" that you have become. May God bless you in a special way today......

My love always,
Ms. Robin
