Happy 7th Birthday Aubrey!



Aubrey is 7! I still can't believe it. I have a 7 year old. Its crazy. 7 years ago today I held my first newborn child in my arms. I'll never forget that feeling. And I'll never forget when she first started to say "mamamama" months later:) I loved it....even though she said "dadadada" first. I guess thats allowed:)








Aubrey is a beautiful, sweet, intelligent, responsible, caring and wonderful little lady. I am so proud of her and all she has accomplished in her young life. The other day I went to eat lunch with her at school for the first time this year and her teacher actually came up to me and said so sincerely, "Aubrey is just wonderful! She is such a joy to have in class. You must be SO proud of her!" It was one of those moments that I'll never forget. I smiled and just said, "Yes, I am." Aubrey was beaming. And I was too. I am so proud to call her my daughter.





Aubrey, thank you for being a wonderful daughter.





Thank you for being so sweet.



Thank you for being so silly.




Thank you for being one of my very best friends.




Thank you for being such a great big sister.




Our family wouldn't be the same without you.


Happy Birthday sweetie! I love you so much!!

Seven already? Wow! I remember the first time I visited you home as your Home Teacher (with Travis Cluff -- remember him?). Aubrey would have been 9 or 10 months old. While we were visiting, she suddenly gave an almighty scream of pure agony. She had managed to get hold of a watch or bracelet or something like that, and her finger was trapped in it. You and Joey struggled to get it off her, and that was the end of any Home Teaching for the evening. I'm glad everyone has recovered from that evening!
