"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Our Little Princess is 2 1/2!

Today marked Audrey's half birthday and we celebrated by driving to Grapevine to have dinner with Andrew's family for his dad's birthday. (Happy Birthday, Grandpa Werley! We love you! :) As I sit here and think about my little girl and the many ways the Lord has made her with such a beautiful heart and so unique, I am absolutely in awe of the blessing of Audrey. Don't get me wrong, she has hit the "twos" head on where we struggle with tantrums when she doesn't get her way and the emotions that we didn't have to deal with when Austin was her age, but for the most part, she still loves exploring her world and is such a fun little girl who brings us such joy.

I just love this pic! It shows a lot of Audrey's personality and how adorable she is!

She is talking now more than ever and she loves to sing and dance and be silly. She is constantly saying, "Hey mom and dad, look at me or watch me do this." And then, "Did you see that? I am so silly or that was so funny" with a big smile on her face. So precious!

Like most little girls her age, Audrey LOVES anything princess and pink. Just tonight she was talking about how she wants a pink princess fire truck! She has many dolls that she carries around the house and cares for throughout the day and she is very concerned and aware that everyone needs a family. When she plays, there as to be a mommy, daddy, brother and sister. I love watching her be a "mommy." She has such a nurturing spirit and compassionate heart!

Audrey is also a girl who doesn't mind getting dirty. She loves digging in the dirt, collecting rocks and on most days, she still ends up wearing some part of her meal. :) She has started taking some bigger risks by climbing up and sliding down the big curvy slides at Chick-fil-A and the park, riding her bike more and running and hopping all over the house with her brother. Audrey is also the kiddo that can fall and get hurt ANYWHERE, so we kiss a lot of boo-boos and she is constantly asking for a band aid. She still adores her big brother and is building a neat relationship with Ainsley on the days Austin is at school. We are just so in love with this little girl! We are still loving every moment of this parenting thing - okay, MOST moments. ;)
Now if we could just get Audrey potty-trained...
