We are doing much better, plus some cake pictures!

I took Aubriana yesterday to the doctor to check on her ears, to make sure the infections had cleared up and they have! Yay! I was pretty sure they had, since she's started sleeping through the night most of the time.

She is 10 months now. She is so sweet. She's very observant and watches everything closely. She's started taking turns trying to say everyone's names. She even said her own name (Nana) once and was very proud of herself. She waves hi, with such a girl, princess wave--she only uses her hand and wrist and will say hi too. I weaned to strait to a cup and she loves her cup. I'm feeling a bit strange about finishing with breast feeding. On one hand, I loathe it. On the other hand, I miss it a bit and feel sad that that chapter in my life is probably over. Although that thought alternates from making me sad to making me want to jump up and down with joy.

My nephew, Hyrum, had his 5th birthday on Saturday. I can't believe how old he is getting! He will be heading off to Kindergarten this fall with Xander (stayed tuned for a teary future post). We had his party yesterday. I made him a robot cake, and I have to say it turned out so cute! Even cuter than I was hoping and it was one of the shorter cakes to make. Although we picked a vanilla cake and not one of them came out cleanly from the pan. At one point, knowing my gift for drama, I collapsed on the floor in agony because the fourth cake didn't come out of the pan cleanly! :P I just pieced them together with frosting, but that was really annoying.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of our little robot, M29 (named for Hyrum's birthday). My dad called him Robby for short. ;)

  2. Kara, that's quite the cake, I love it, but I am sure Hyrum loved it too!
