We had a surprise waiting for us in the garage a few weeks ago. It was a snake. I tell people about the snakes that we get and they look at my like I am lying when I say how big they are. The snakes that we get at our house are HUGE!!! Here is a video of the latest one that was hiding behind the trash can -- SCARY!! (Casey and Wes sealed up the holes in the garage that we think the snakes use to get in - so watch out neighbors - they are coming to you now :)
Every night after her bath she listens to some music with daddy - ROCK music -- so special to share time with Daddy - watch her jam to the Muse -- so cute!
Audrey Kate had her 15 month check up. She now weights 20.4 pounds and is 30 1/2 inches tall. She is in the 15th percentile for her weight and 50th percentile for her height - she loves to run, play, dance, swing, and climb. She learned how to jump and spin in circles too -- I think she likes getting dizzy.
Her word list just gets longer and longer - but here are the ones that I can remember:
night night, up, all done, the end, more, juice, milk, bath, book, ball, daddy, mommy, baby, belly bee( for belly button), ahhh (for airplane), choo choo, woo woo (for the fire truck) pumpkin, down, baba (bottle), mimi (for her lamb), eyes, nose, yeah, Annie, RaeRae(for her friend Reagan), around (for the fan), eat, car, uh-oh, off, weeee, no-no, oooz (for shoes) and lots of animal sounds.
She is so much fun - we are so blessed to have her as our daughter - and enjoy every minute!!

Wes's sweet cousins always check Audrey Kate's blog and love watching her videos. They claim they are her biggest fans :) I thought that it would be fun to post a video of them, so that they would see it when they checked the blog. Thank you for being so much fun guys. We love you Kamsey, Kaida, Kale, and Kabry!!! (sorry if I spelled your names wrong)
Isn't this song so cute!

Just look at how huge it is compared to the cars....massive!
These are some of the supports to hold the thing up...
going up the escalators to our seats
The screen was HUGE - I think that it is bigger than my house.
The retractable ceiling...it was closed due to the rain.
A picture of our seats --- look behind Wes -- yup that is the top of the stadium - we could still enjoy everything and see everything even from the tippy top.

1. Transitioning to full time sippy cup (I gave her some formula in her sippy the other day and she just let it dribble out of her mouth...she did this two times. Then I put the formula in her bottle and she sucked it down....uuggghhh - I am definitely introducing the milk in the sippy cup.
2. Transitioning to milk from formula (I want to wait until after her doctor's appointment on Friday to make sure that she is nutritionally ready to move to milk....she is just so petite!)

On a different note, Audrey Kate has been extra cute today. We have been reading her several books a day since she was born. This girl LOVES books. She looks at them by herself all the time and loves to help turn the pages and imitate us pointing to the pictures. Well, today she started bringing books to us and then putting her hands up so we can put her in our lap. She waits while we read looking at all the pictures and imitating some of the sound effects. Then she gets down and gets another one. Then the process starts all over. Also, today she kept bringing me my flip flops and wanting me to put them on. Then she wanted me to take them off. She would pick them up - walk around with them a while and then bring them back for me to put on. So cute!!
She has been saying several words for a while, but the list keeps growing and growing. She now consistently and spontaneously says:
Daddy, Annie, Hi, Bye, Ba(for bottle), and woof woof for dog. So cute - she is also imitating a ton - but rarely does she even attempt to say mama - so silly. She will get it one of these days.

Wes has been sick the past 3 days - so Audrey Kate and I have been spending lots of quality time together. Let's just say that life as a single mother would be tough. Today I was taking care of Wes, Audrey Kate, and Annie (she was needing lots of attention and playtime today)straigtening up the house, catching up on laundry, and trying to do a little work from home. I am exhausted from my day....looking forward to the weekend and having Wes back on his feet.

Step 1: Falling asleep by herself - yeah - this one has been acheived. She fusses when we sing the good night song or she sees her crib because she knows it is coming - but then she goes down pretty quickly - our schedule has really helped with this - plus the fact that she was ready but mommy and daddy really enjoyed rocking her to sleep,
Step 2: De-pacifier - oooohhh I am not looking forward to this one - but AK already just takes a paci at nap time. I think we should start today - nap time is in about 30 minutes - should we try it with no pacifier? -- this could be a long weekend. How long do you think it will take AK to learn to sleep without the pacifier? 1 nap session (I wish), 1 day, 3 days, a whole week --- place your bets!!!
Step 3: De-bottle and move to full time sippy cup use
Step 4: De-formula and embrace milk!
Step 5: Say MAMA!!
I will keep you updated on how the steps go!! (Don't forget to place your bets or tell me I am crazy!)

It has been forever since I posted on this blog an update in the life of the Texas Roe Family....but don't get your hopes up because it isn't happening today. I just wanted to share some of my favorite photos from an impromptu photo shoot with "world renowned" photographer Brandi Roe - well at least she is well-known for her photography skills in our family. Anyway, enjoy and look for a complete update soon!

Audrey Kate and her baby doll -- this is how she left the cabbage patch kid after she played with it -- so funny -I guess I need to teach her how to play with her baby dolls - hahaha (why does the cabbage patch kid have a tattoo on her tushie - not a good role model for Audrey Kate huh?)

Audrey Kate had just finished dinner. (We take her clothes off at dinner when she is trying to spoon feed herself.) I had just finished separating the laundry. Audrey Kate found this rag and got straight to work cleaning the floors and cabinets. I love how helpful she is around the house! :)
Here she is helping daddy put some furniture together.
And here is our girl, after a long day of working, kicking back with a bottle -- what is with this position?? - totally cute!!

Audrey Kate says "Look Mom - no hands!" She is now standing all by herself. It is the funniest thing. She lets go - has a shocked look on her face and then laughs at herself -- she gets so tickled that she can stand without holding on!!She has also bonded....not with a stuffed animal or a blankie - but with her paci - She wakes up at night several times just looking for her paci. Then, if she can't find it, she cries until I come in and put it back in her mouth. After several nights of this, I decided to put a bunch of pacifiers in her bed and that way it would be easier for her to find them. I am happy to say that it worked. She has been sleeping beautifully again and not needing my help at all. Well, this is how we found her after her nap yesterday - enjoying the plethora of pacifiers in her crib. So funny!
