Three months already. My little girl is a quarter of a year old, and I'm just a few years more than a quarter of a century.
I kind of wish I had no obligations that take up my time, because I really could stare at Audrey all day long. She's getting to be so fun with her babbling and laughing. And dude, she can flip herself over already. I have yet to crack a single parenting book this time, but I feel like that's early. She's been pushing herself up into yoga poses on her elbows since early on in the second month, and now she lets out this little pissed off yell and flips herself over when she's had enough time on her belly.
It appears that all the recessive genes have come out to play, because I have no idea how an albino like me could produce a child with such dark skin, hair and eyes. And she looks a little Asian, doesn't she? If I didn't hold her the second she was born and get a good look at her, I would swear that a baby swap happened at the hospital.
Finally some smiles!
I haven't forgotten about them. Here are my favorite boys in the world:
Other stuff: The school year is coming to an end in a couple of weeks for Julian and I'm kind of relieved. Wade is off for the summer too and it's going to be so nice to have him around during the day this summer to help out. I'll be able to work on figuring out more gluten-free recipes and just generally get more stuff done. The bakery is going really well every Tuesday at the farmers market. It seems like every week more people come, and I'm getting a crazy ton of requests for gluten-free vegan stuff. So I guess I'll need to get to work on that, but it requires really expensive ingredients so I'm not sure how soon that will happen. I'll have to get a wholesale distributor first, so I won't end up having to charge $7 per cupcake or something crazy.
We also want to move this summer, whether we buy a home or rent another one. This little rental has been okay for two years, but it's ridiculously small and we feel super cramped in here. Wade's grandparents just moved here from L.A. so we'll probably move to the side of town they're on so we can be within a few minutes of them. And my sister is moving here in September! That is by far the most exciting thing on the horizon for me. I can't wait to have her here. Clearly, Winston-Salem is a badass place to be. You should all move here too. Let's be neighbors and BFF.
Love and cupcakes to all of you. xoxo.
