Aubrey Sits

Aubrey has been trying to sit up on her own for a while. Well, she finally got the hang of it. She is officially sitting. She loves to sit up and watch her mom and dad move about. Here is our big girl.

6 Month Appointment...FINALLY!!
Aubrey finally went to her 6 month appointment last Friday. They couldn't get her in until the end of the month so she was actually 6 1/2 months. No big deal. She is growing so fast. She weighs 16 lb 7 oz and is in the 82% in height. Doctor Dennison said she was tall and skinny. HA!! Anyone who has seen her thighs would not describe her as skinny. She is our chubby little baby and we LOVE her!! He are a few photos from the doctor.

Right before shots....so happy. She has no idea what is about to happen.

On April 3rd we had Aubrey's 6 month professional pictures done by a wonderful local photgrapher, Jill Ellison. We have not yet received all the pictures, but here are two sample photo's she posted to her blog. We can't wait to see the rest.

Aubrey's first Easter was wonderful. We all went to church and then my parents, brother and Mimi came over for a delicious lunch prepared by Alan. We all had a great time.

Alan's wonderful roast!

We have so much fun with Aubrey. The older she gets, the more we discover about her. She is really developing a personality. I love taking pictures of her and have been lucky enough to catch a few of her many expressions. Her are some of her faces:

Bath time curiousity, "What are you looking at Mommy?"

"I'm so happy..I can't stand it!"

Close-up of "I'm so happy..."

Screamy Aubrey, "AHHH"

Sticking out Tongue, "Ha ha"

Aubrey with her Great-Uncle Gary, curious face...again

Alan taught Aubrey to stick out her tongue. Here they are at the Arboretum showing off for the camera.

Nice Aubrey....what a great thing Daddy has taught you.

Aubrey's first time in a swing. Obviously, she loved it. Once we find our new home, dad will be getting her a swing.

Kai got a little scared during her "Happy Birthday" song so her mom held her while we finished. This was taken right before she took her first bite of cake.

Just the girls!
Here is a video of Aubrey's first time in a swing. It is hilarious!!

On March 25th, my mom and I took Aubrey to the Dallas Pi Phi Eggstravaganza. It was at a park in Dallas. There was a petting zoo and an Easter egg hunt. We had so much fun. Aubrey's friends Asher, Conner, and Kai met us there. Even Daddy showed up to watch all the fun.

It was a cold day, but we still wore the bubble dress that Auntie Carine bought. So cute!
Aubrey's first time in a petting zoo. She loves her touch-and-feel books, so it was no surprise how excited she got when she touched this real bunny. She loved it!
Aubrey was not interested in this bunny. She was watching the little goat that kept following us around.

This piggy was a "wee" overweight. Kai and Jae stopped to feed it. Fat piggy!

Aubrey's boyfriend Asher was so scared of the animals, at first. Then he warmed up to this little fella.


Us with Amber and Asher

The egg hunt was great. They had a section for 2 and under. Aubrey found three eggs, with a little help from her Cici.
She wasn't interested in what was inside the egg, only on trying to figure out how to get it in her mouth. Sweet baby.
Connor, Aubrey, Kai, and Asher...with the mommies.

The egg hunt was on Kai's 1st birthday. Happy Birthday Kai!!

Here is the whole crew: Randy and son Connor, us, Jae and Kai, Amber and Asher

Thanks Cici for being the photographer for the day. It was so much fun.

Loving on Daddy.

What a fun time. We will be back next year!

I was trying to get a picture of Kaden without him knowing it. He happened to turn around just as I was taking this picture. Picture perfect...according to me and his Mimi. He wasn't too happy.

Tired baby.
Just before we left she work up. Still a happy girl.

Bye-Bye Arboretum. So glad we got a membership. We will be back to visit often.
