happy, happy birthday to our sweet baby girl aubrey.
you are so thrilled this day is here...since you've been asking me for awhile...."is today my birthday?"
we began today with our typical get me up game of find aubrey hidden under the quilt.
first the toes
then the nose.
then we had good morning birthday kisses and off to panera and the library we went.
today was a hot day...high of 96...so we had a lunch time picnic under a very big shady tree.
and then cooled off our feet on the boat ramp.
if it was permitted and i had said yes...those three would have jumped right in...clothes and all!:)
that skirt keeps getting pulled up higher and higher...how adorable is that?
after some chill time at home it was back outside.
this time with a little self-made cooling off.:)
aubrey's birthday dinner of choice...cheesy chips and salsa, banilla yogurt, applesauce and apple cider.
:: toy boats, princess sofia books and toys, dress, card games, butterfly wings and a water table!::
we love you so very much baby!!
brownies tonight and a real cake when we celebrate with your friends this weekend.
your sisters had vbs so you had your brand new water table all to yourself.:)
what a birthday this was.
teary and bittersweet to say the very least.
as i read you stories last night and listened to your sweet voice say all the millions of things you have to say...it suddenly hit me...you are growing up!
today you met a little girl at the library and as i watched your from afar and saw you play puzzles with her and talk to her about your sisters and your daddy...it suddenly hit me...you are growing up!
and as i sit here typing this with the tears running down my face looking at all your baby pictures and the day you were born it is really hitting me that you are growing up, and even though i am happy i am a little sad too.
this year is a whole new beginning for us.
school and teachers and lots of friends.
but i still want to keep you little.
and i know that has way more to do with me then you.
i love you so very much aubrey kate.
you are and always will be my baby.
thank you for being mine and for letting me love you and be your mommy.
happy birthday sweetie
