She slept hard that night (3-hour stretches and barely moving whenever I shifted), and we kept her home on Monday since her rash hadn't cleared up yet. She was super thrilled with Ryan in the morning, then good for me when I relieved Ryan at lunch-time (even letting me get in an hour of work over lunch!). She really does like the bathtub for some reason, so we hung out in the bathroom for quite a while before she took an almost unprecedented 3-hour nap (and I got a lovely nap in as well!).

Audra continues to get more playful, which is awesome! She started playing peekaboo, and will cover her face with a towel, burp cloth, etc., before pulling it off with a big grin on her face. She hasn't quite figured out what part of her face she's supposed to cover though, and will sometimes just hold something up to her chin before pulling it away to wait for the resultant claps from me :) She also has started to hand us things, like one night when she handed her slipper to Ryan... who handed it to me... and I handed it back to (a delighted) Audra to repeat the cycle several more times :) She also, rather randomly, started curling her lip up and snorting like a pig when she's especially happy. Happy is good, although (and I say this with love) I was slightly disturbed by the fact that I found the opportunity to use the word "porcine" for the first time, and it was in reference to my adorable daughter ;)
