Happy Birthday, Audrey bug! <3
My sweet girl turned FIVE. She’s getting ready for Kindergarten at the end of August.
Ready for the funnies of our amazing girl?
Daddy threw away a package of gummy bears. Audrey suddenly ran to the bathroom and locked the door (which is unusual that the door was even shut) and when she came out her mouth was bulging. When asked how many were in her mouth she could barely talk but said, “One!” as two fell out.
We went to the Olive Garden for dinner and Audrey special requested an olive. Just one.
While at the dentist he made a comment about her lack of tonsils. So on the drive home she bursts into tears, sad about missing her tonsils. Then at Family Home Evening we asked if there was anything anyone wanted to discuss, Audrey raised her hand and starts crying, “I don’t have any tonsils!”
Audrey was poking herself in the eye and then told us, “My eye hurts, RIGHT HERE!”
“How about you name that baby girl so you can hurry up and have her? Deal?!” [When I was 6 months pregnant with Ruby.]
Mama had a bunch of 5 gallon water bottles in her car that Daddy forgot to take out, when she turned a corner one fell over. Audrey said, “Just ask Daddy really nicely to take them out of your car. And if he doesn’t do it then you kick him out of the house!”
Me: Do you know what that says? That says Thyme, like Audrey’s middle name and mama’s middle name!
Audrey: I didn’t know that was my middle name!
Me: why do you think we call you Audrey Thyme?
Audrey: ‘Cause you’re silly.
Sydney: Did you know the pioneers came to Utah and built the salt lake temple?
Audrey: They built it all by themselves?!
Me: Audrey don’t run with a pencil!
Audrey: How about an eraser? Can I run with an eraser?
Audrey decided it was time to watch the first Christmas movie of the season. She choose Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, when it finished she sighed and said, “Well that was awful!”
Audrey: Why does Sydney get a baptism towel?
Me: She’s going to be baptized in August, because she will be 8.
Audrey: Why does Sydney get to be 8?!
Jordan: Where are you going?
Audrey: I’m leaving! Sydney won’t play with me, and Zachary is stinky and he will stink up my toys!
Audrey: Mama, why does Zachary have cracks in his belly?
Me: Those are called veins.
Audrey: Are you sure? I think he’s cracking.
Me: First day back to school, we don’t have another break until Ruby is born!
Audrey: WE DON’T GET A BATHROOM BREAK UNTIL RUBY IS BORN?!?!?
Our little lady is still as dramatic as ever, she loves her baby sister. For the most part she and Sydney play so well together! Zachary and her are frienemies, and it changes every four seconds. She loves to sing, and is still enjoying gymnastics. She is 3’4″ tall (9th percentile) which means she grew 3 inches in a year.
