Aubrey turned 3 on Monday. I can’t believe it’s been three years already! She is such a blessing in my life and a complete joy every single day. She has one of the sweetest and funniest personalities and makes me laugh constantly.
She is becoming even more independent these days which is both fun to watch and saddens me at the same time. She woke me up yesterday morning around 4:30 AM to tell me that she was hungry. I asked if she could wait until “morningtime” and she responded with, “You do that [meaning get chocolate milk] and I go poddy, otay? That be idea?”
That is one of my favorite sayings of hers. “That be idea?” A friend suggested I get that on a t-shirt which sounds so fun but will also be one of those things I never follow up on because life gets in the way. I still make sure I make time for Aubrey though. She is growing up so fast these days I can hardly keep up with her. I don’t want to miss a moment of it. Last night she helped me cook dinner and she actually helped!
We celebrated her birthday on Sunday so family could take part. She woke up Sunday morning and saw a pile of presents from family in Iowa on the kitchen table and was so excited. She ran back and forth down the hall trying to get her dad out of bed and get some pep in his step since I told her she needed to wait for him before she could open anything. She hadn’t had breakfast or let me do her hair yet. Presents were the priority. When I made the comment, “Your hair…” she answered what she perceived as my unasked question with, “Is it kinda beautiful?” See for yourself.
On an unrelated note, the fog this morning was insane. I took this while at a stop light that you can’t even see.
