A good day

Today was just a very good day, and I wanted to write about it. I got up early with Audrey at 7:00 and stayed awake all day, which will help me move to an earlier schedule for the start of work. Audrey went down for her morning nap just as Tara went to sleep, which gave me two and a half hours of me-time! I was able to start some bread, go for a jog (the first in a *long* time), and take a nice cool shower afterward. Then took care of Audrey for the rest of the day after she woke (Tara had a long night last night, and Audrey refused her afternoon nap, so that was the afternoon).

In the evening we went to have dinner with some new friends from our new church. We've been so blessed in the process of this move, and one of the ways is that we quickly found a church that we felt comfortable attending. The preaching is biblical and thoughtful, there's a great community group system, and there are lots of young couples with kids -- apparently a recent baby boom has yielded 27 infants already this year (which is surprising, because the church doesn't feel that big). But more than that, another couple there were quick to meet us and invite us over for dinner. We had a great time getting to know them, and are looking forward to getting more involved.

Back to front!

Audrey is four months old today, and she celebrated by rolling over from back to front for the first time. Then she did it four more times, but unfortunately, I was never ready with the video camera like last time. Pretty soon she'll be rolling all over the place. We'll put her down in her play mat in the family room to do something, and when we come back five minutes later she'll be under the table.

Our New Apartment

Thought we'd post some pictures of our new apartment, now that we're settled in and everything is put away (inviting friends over is a great way to get the house cleaned!). Click here, or just enjoy the smaller version below.

Sleeping through the night

Audrey slept for eight hours straight for the first time last night! This was probably greatly helped by the fact that I forgot to turn on the baby monitor before going to sleep. She had already been sleeping about that long, and usually without a "dream feed", but she has needed help along the way -- we've been getting up and putting her pacifier back in whenever she starts fussing. But last night I didn't hear her, and she evidently managed to put herself back to sleep each time. Great!

Rolling over

Audrey rolled over today! See the video below. Also, the girl's voice at the end is ... Scott. :(.

First Post

Okay, here is the much-requested blog. It will probably mostly have stuff about Audrey in it, but maybe we'll post some adult-oriented stuff as well. For future reference, we also keep a photo gallery through picasaweb.
