Sweet Child of Mine


My sweet, sweet Audrey. You used to be so sweet and easy. And now, well now you're not. When we got home last night, we went outside to the playset since it was still 70 degrees outside. And I promptly put you in your swing. Last fall, you would have stayed in that swing all day. Tonight, you lasted oh about 10 seconds before pointing at the glider to ride on it. Which we did, only for you to want down. And then crawl up the slide. And then slide down head first. And then go up the ladder. And then cry when Mommy wouldn't help you up the slide again. And then cry when we had to go in for dinner.

Not fun, not fun. And dude, if you would just walk on your own, you would definitely be happier. And so would my back.

70 degrees????? I so hate you right now :) And I thought we were warm at 40!!!

I'm sorry she's not walking yet...my son didn't walk until 14 months, and my back too was ready for him to walk much sooner!

I feel your pain--literally. While I know once she walks, I'll rarely sit again, my back is screaming for her to walk already :)

Cute pictures. Want to drive to NY for a playdate? I'll take you to Target :)

Your working mother blog looks great. Your personal blog looks even better!
I currently have 4 children. 3 are my biological children, 1 is my stepdaughter and we are adopting a baby from China. And I work. So, I have been looking for a group of working Moms on-line to chat with and lend support.

She may not be as sweet, but, gah, Amy she is just so damn cute!!!!

Lindsey still isn't walking either. She can take a few steps, but most of the time she flat out refuses to even have us help her take steps.
She is such a cutie!

So very precious Amy! Both of your girls are super adorable :)

She may not be walking but she's cute enough to convince people to carry her everywhere so it's all good. :)

Those pictures are cute. Also I remember those days, wait a minute Madison is 6 and still can't always keep her interest in anything for more then 10 seconds its the same with her at the park. She knows how to swing and get up on things her self she just doesn't want to.

Argh! Of course once she's walking it will be so much worse in a different way.

Your little girl is simply adorable!
