Wordful Wednesday: 5 months

About 18 months ago, I was doing an activity in one of my grad school classes. The activity was supposed to be an icebraker that we could use while conducting group therapy sessions and it involved passing around Chinese fortune cookies, breaking them open and reading your fortune out loud. I loved this idea and thought it was a neat and different idea to try with a group. I wasn't expecting much  seeing as the "fortunes" that I usually receive are not really fortunes! They're usually wise sayings like "one who is always talking is rarely listening." That is not a fortune! So, when it was finally my time to crack open my fortune, I was pleasantly surprised to read a true fortune....

"A beautiful person will be entering your life."

I knew what I hoped it meant, Alex and I had begun discussions of when to start trying for a new addition to our family just days before the cookie activity, but would it come true? Was it a sign that we were ready? ...Beautiful? I know, little boys are just as beautiful as little girls, but could it mean.... a daughter?!?! All these questions from a stupid fortune cookie! Why, oh why, does everything have to mean something to me?!?!


On Monday, my sweet, little Audrey turned 5 months old! It seems to have passed in the blink of an eye! She's smiling and laughing, rolling over, trying to sit up and does not like it when momma leaves her sight or lets others hold her!!



She's a Momma's girl for sure and is happiest when in my arms!


But also has a deep connection with her big brother, who loves to talk to her, hold her hand and shower her with kisses. They seem to have their own language and I often catch Vincent and Audrey jibber jabbering away to each other...



And Daddy's not so bad either... when she actually lets him hold her...



What a great 5 months it has been! I'm so glad this beautiful person has entered my life!

Such a sweetie. I got a chuckle out of that second picture. It can get a little tiring when babies only want mommy. Makes it hard to get things done.
If you get a chance I would love you to come and link up at Tots and Me

She is just beautiful! Don't you love it when they know exactly what they want or who they want to hold them?! The time really does go by quickly--my "baby" just turned 16 months, and it feels like we were just heading to the hospital last week!
