Today I took advantage of some time while Audrey was playing on her own to do a little work of my own. I was sitting at the computer when Audrey danced over to me carrying a sequined purse on her arm and wearing a necklace around her neck. She kept saying, "shopping, shopping, shopping" and smiling at me. I talked to her about her pretend shopping trip and she looked very happy. Then she stretched her hand out to me with her palm facing up, and she said, "money". I never thought this sort of behavior would start so early! She is so funny.

Jayne Elizabeth

Our newest addition has arrived! On November 18th, Jayne Elizabeth Jensen was born. She weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long. She has dark hair, and more of it than we were expecting. She has a quiet, sweet temperament and still sleeps a lot. When she does cry, it sounds like a bird squawking. Audrey loves her and has already starting teaching her to say the alphabet. The lessons are short because Audrey only knows A - B. She just repeats those letters over and over again while Jayne sleeps.

We feel so blessed to have her join our family.

Final Countdown

I'm on the final countdown to my delivery date. Just three more weeks. And, I just got my hair cut. I think this is the shortest it has ever been. It's so nice to have it short! I don't have much else to say about it, but I promised a couple of friends some pictures here on the blog.

Tonight we went to a ward Halloween party. Audrey was a little moody...not surprising. When we were on our way out, she saw her reflection in the glass door and just had to dance. Jake and I waited by the exit for 10 minutes as she danced to the music in her head and entertained people who were leaving. Here's her costume for this year. She refuses to wear the wings and antenna that make her really look like a bee...funny girl:

Funny Girl

I just backed up a bunch of pictures of Audrey and couldn't help but smile. Pictures of her just remind me of all the funny things she does. She is overflowing with personality. I hope Jake and I can handle her when she's older! Here are a few fun examples of the many faces of Audrey...

Is any childhood complete without a Burger King crown?

...in mom's glasses.

Learning to use the fun bowl with a built-in straw that Aunt Brandi gave her!

Contemplating life after Oreos.

We're still not sure what surprised her.

This is the best we've been able to capture her way of showing she is surprised. She tenses her arms and hands and presses her lips tight against her teeth. She's such a funny girl!

Family Update

We've used our Chariot many times since last October. Audrey is getting used to it finally. She no longer screams when we put her in it. Last time we went on a family ride, we stopped at a park to check a bike tire. I played with her on the slides and swings. Within five minutes she left the playground and tried climbing back in the Chariot. That's good news!

I'm pregnant! We are so excited to welcome another little one into our family. I'm due November 20.

Carl is graduating in a few weeks. Our entire family is so happy for him! We don't know what his after-graduation plans are yet. We're just happy about the graduation part.

We recently set up a channel on youtube.com/jensenkids . You can go there to see several of our home videos. So far I've posted videos from Audrey's first birthday party. I'll post the link on this blog for you.
