We’re doing the Daniel Fast for 21 days and we’re on day 5. We’ve talked about it and you’ve began noticing that mommy and daddy aren’t eating or drinking our normal stuff. Tonight you wanted a snack before bedtime and we let you have some carrots and a little bit of ranch…
Audrey: “Mommy, you can share my ranch with me, if you want to.”
Mommy: “Audrey, mommy and daddy are giving up ranch for Jesus right now.”
Audrey: “I wanna give up ranch for Jesus too…after I get done eating all of this!”😂
You crack us up girl!!! Mommy and daddy loves you!
If you weren’t able to make it to an Easter service this morning, that’s ok…my little girl sums it up in less than 60 seconds.
Day 1 of no more paci’s…you got a card in the mail…we asked you to read it to us.
The pre-story… we planned on taking your paci’s on Valentines Day so we told you Cupid was going to get them and give them to little girls that didn’t have any paci’s. in return Cupid was going to give you some good candy. Unfortunately, you got sick around Valentines Day so we didn’t take them.
Mrs. Rita got you a gift card to Build-A-Bear for your birthday and mommy seized the opportunity to ask you if you wanted to give your paci to your new teddy bear (named Pumpkin…pronounced Punkin). You excitedly said yes so we let you put the paci inside the bear. You helped put the stuffing inside the bear and then tied it up! We ran into Mamaw Debbie in the mall and we prompted you to show her your new teddy bear and tell her about it. You told her that you put your paci inside. At that point, you realized that you didn’t have a paci and a mini breakdown ensued. Then you reminded us that you had more paci’s at home so mommy reminded you that Cupid had came by the house while we were gone and got all your paci’s for the little girls that needed them. When we got home, we checked the mail and told you there was a card for you. We asked you to read it and mommy got it on video. 4-8-17
You can’t teach a kid to be this 😎 cool! It just comes naturally!
Tonight during bedtime routine…Me: Audrey, do you know that daddy will love you forever and ever?
Me: Do you know that daddy would do anything in the world for you?
Audrey: OK, stay home from work tomorrow. #backfire
Audrey: I want Jesus to come out of my heart right now…I want to see him. (As she lifts her shirt and looks at her belly button like Jesus was getting ready to come out)
Love my girls!!!!
Last couple mornings I’ve left Audrey crying for daddy as I had to go to work. Breaks my heart. This morning she’s doing the same thing. As I’m trying to figure out how to slip away Kelsey ask Audrey if she wants to go to the park…Audrey looks at daddy…quits crying and says…”you go to work! I go to park! Bye daddy!”😂😂. How quickly I was traded for the park!😂😂
Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands!😂❤️😂
You were running a fever Monday but you still wanted to play outside and it didn’t seem to phase you much, other than your appetite. We laid you down at normal bed time and you went straight to sleep. All was well until about 1 am, you woke up and cried. Since you were running a fever, we quickly brought you to bed with us which was a struggle because you didn’t feel well and were very restless. Next morning, mommy takes you to the Dr and they say you have strep throat!! But, once again you were a champ all day and it didn’t slow you down a bit! You played outside with mommy and was in the best mood when daddy got home! After a mild bath, you weren’t even running a temp at all. We go to put you down to sleep and you weren’t having it! Mommy held you and rocked you for about an hour. Once she thought you were asleep, she tried to lay you down, but nope, you started crying. So daddy came in to relieve mommy. I held you and rocked you for another hour or so, but you would not lay down in the crib. Every time we tried to lay you down…you cried and cried!
So…finally, mommy comes in and says “let’s just put her in our bed.” I carry you in our room, I lay you down in our bed…you reached down and grabbed the covers and tucked yourself in!!😂😂. It was as if you looked up at me, smiled and winked, and then pulled up the covers and went straight to sleep. Mommy didn’t even get in bed right away as she went to the bathroom to get ready for bed, but you didn’t mind a bit. You were like, “I’ll be right here in yalls bed when you’re ready!”😂😂.
This is a memory I hope to remember forever. You’re sweet face as you pulled those covers up! Mommy and I have laughed all day about it. I wish I would’ve got a picture. I love you girl!
