A two-part post


Last night we watched the movie WILLOW. Our reason for doing so was three-fold: 1) to acquaint my sister-in-law Kayti with this fabulous 1980’s classic, 2) to re-aquaint ourselves with this fabulous 1980’s classic, and 3) because for some time now I have thought that my little Audrey resembles the baby in the movie, Elora Danan.





It was hard to find photos of this little baby online. Most pics were of willow and madmortigan (val kilmer). But what do you think? Pretty similar?

If you haven’t seen that movie, I would highly recommend it. It’s a little darker than I remember it being, but it boasts some fabulous lines, such as “This is war, not agriculture”, “Kill the beast! Find the baby!”, “Help! There’s a peck here with an acorn pointed at me!”, “Your mother was a lizard”, “You are so beautiful. Your eyes, your whiskers, I was to keees you!”, and “Tempting, but no”. Ahahaha. It makes me laugh just thinking about it. If you haven’t seen it, watch it! If you have, watch it again. If you aren’t sold yet, here’s a link to the trailer:


Now for PART II.

Audrey turned 4 months old yesterday!!


I’m so in love with this little butterball I can hardly stand it.


Here favorite things to do these days are:

1. chew endlessly on her fingers


2. Spit


3. Growl at her mom, suck on her lip, and smile, smile, smile


4. Grab her toes


5. Play hide and seek


6. Give her “power to the people” arm raise and stare at her hand


7. Imitate buddha


Seriously people. I’m so in love with her. And I declare here and now that she is the most adorable baby on this planet. Evidence:





Not convinced? Too bad. And if you think your baby is the most adorable baby on the planet (which I’m sure you do), you can write it on your blog.

Okay, I can’t take it any longer. I’m done with you internet. I’ve got to go chew on these delicious little morsels…

    I have not seen Willow in years (many many years). We may just have to rent it to relive it.
    Mere, Audrey is absolutely adorable! I love these shots. Seriously, she is too cute!

    I LOVE THE TOE GRABBING! She is just precious. I remember those days of old when Liam was that age. So sweet and chunky!
