{One and a Half}

Yesterday Aubrey turned one and a half.
Did I ever tell you that
Riley and Aubrey share June and
Janey and Aubrey share the 12th?
They think that is pretty special and so do I.

Aubrey and I never went on a date, because, well,
every day is a date with Aubrey.:)
And we decided to skip the sugary dessert.
This might be the last year we can get away with that right?
But we did do the book.
{had some blurriness but had to keep them}
That little sweetie sure does have some expressions doesn't she?
Dave would say she gets that from me.

I used to read the Mrs. Wishy Washy big books when I was in the classroom.
I bought the read aloud versions when Riley was born.
Aubrey loved getting one more to add to her collection.

Here is Aubrey on her first half birthday
What a difference a year makes huh?

Happy Half Birthday My Sweet
Hope you can feel how very much we love you!


  1. I too love Mrs. Wishy Washy. Isn't it crazy how much they change in a year?

  2. So sweet...I love her excitement!
    That's pretty cool that the girls all share a birthday day and number together! (I always knew they were close!)

    The spoons were just dipped in chocolate and then sat on wax paper to dry. I sprinkled some of the spoons with snowflake sprinkles...but I was short on time so I didn't get all fancy!

    Have a great day!

  3. Adorable. They grow sooo fast!

  4. kids get to big to fast! sometimes i just want to freeze time for awhile!

  5. I love the idea of celebrating half birthdays. And her expressions. So good you caught them to share. I have never heard of Mrs. Wishy Washy. I will be checking them out.

  6. Happy Half Birthday to Aubrey from the folks at Halfbirthday.com!

  7. Happy half birthday to your sweet baby girl. I melted when I saw her pics from a year ago. Oh my. Of course, she is still just as cute! I LOVE the expressions on her face in the first collage. So sweet.

  8. I love Mrs. Wishy Washy too! It's also the book the teachers do with the students at our school when they come fro Kindergarten orientation.

    Your girls are just beautiful! Happy 1/2 birthday to your dear baby!

  9. The excitement on her face is priceless.
    Your girls are so sweet!
    Your home looks gorgeous too!

  10. oh my goodness, cindy, those 6-month photos are to die for ... she's grown up so much!! greta photos with the new camera, too ... wow!

    We had our half-birthday treat/book celebration for little ladybug on the 8th (last Weds!) ... I took photos but am soooo behind in my posts - still determined to get to it, though - but late :-( I love that we do it the same way, must be the teacher in us?!

  11. love that you celebrate half bday's even with everything else going on this time of year! She is adorable!!
