6 Month Pictures

Aubree's six month pictures turned out wonderful! Here are just a few of our favorites....

She was having such a good time :)

Future Panther!

The two loves of my life!

We managed to get a few where she didn't have grass in her mouth :)

Look at those pretty brown eyes!

Mischievous little smirk! I swear, this child gets all her expressions from her daddy!

Her newest trick..."the shy face"

Catching Up!

Here is a little of what Aubree has been up to the past few weeks! I still can't believe how much she is growing and how fast the time goes. She is now 5 and half months old, sitting up, and as of tonight eating cereal. I know any second she is just going to be scooting around like crazy! For the last month she:

-Still loves when her Daddy comes home! I think this is my favorite part of the day as well because I get to see her little face just lights up!

-She is sitting up as of August 22nd. This makes things so much easier.

-She loves watching the dogs. Roscoe always brings her his ball and drops it in her lap for her to throw, ha! Maybe someday.

-She had her first taste of cereal tonight, September 7th.

-Teething is in full swing, poor baby.

-She loves going to her Daddy's football games and cheering on the Panthers!

-She is a great sleeper at night, but a little more restless during her naps.

-She adores her babysitter which makes going to work so much easier.

-She is learning to wave bye and high five-if she's going to grow up a coaches kid, high fiving is a must!

-She is an absolute joy and the light of our lives. We are head over heals in love with this sweet baby girl!

Visiting her great Granny and Grandpa and looking at pictures of herself.

The cutest little Panther fan I've ever seen :)

First taste of rice cereal...

She loved it and kept banging on the table if we took too long in between bites :)

Better late than never :) I figured I better get this up before Aubree hits the five month mark. Here were her 4 month stats at her appointment:

weight: 15 lbs 10 oz (87%)
length: 24 inches (42%)--sorry Aubs, this is your mommy's fault :)
head: 16.75 inches (86%)--all brains I'm sure!

Aubree's Fourth Month:

-She continues to sleep through the night, woohoo! She goes to bed between 8 and 9 and wakes up between 6 and 7.

-She is a very happy baby, but doesn't like to be left alone. If I leave her on her playmat and leave the room she cries until someone comes back in the room with her.

-She loves her jumperoo.

-She rolled over for the first time on July 24th :)

-We are waiting to start cereal/oatmeal or any foods until a little later because she has a milk allergy. Our pediatrician said she is more likely to be allergic to other foods as well...booo!

-She usually takes three naps a day...two short ones and a longer afternoon nap.

-She continues to eat 6 ounces every 3 to 4 hours.

-She loves watching her four legged brothers and sister run around. Her eyes get huge as she watches them.

-Cousin Molly was born July 13th. We are so excited for Aubree to have a cousin so close in age.

-She took her first trip to Bowie at the end of June. She loved staying with Bena and Granddaddy but wasn't too sure about her swimming pool.

-She has the prettiest big brown eyes and LONG eyelashes! They go perfect with her chubby little cheeks!

-Aubree continues to amaze us with how much she changes each and every day. She is such a blessing and has brought so much joy to our lives! We love you Aubree Mae!

Such a happy girl before her shots. She did much better this time and didn't hold her breath as long as last time.

Not so happy after her shots. Poor little chunky legs. :(

Pretty girl!

Four Months-July 22, 2010!


Aubree has several new toys that she LOVES! I really need to figure out how to post our videos on here because her newest thing is screaming at the top of her lungs when she gets excited. It's the funniest thing to watch. She even gets herself choked up every now and then :)
Watching her "Tiny Love" mobile...thanks Heather for introducing us to this. When we visited Parker and Presley Aubree wouldn't stop looking at their mobiles so of course we had to get her one of her own.
We LOVE the jumperoo! I knew she would love this because she is constantly kicking and moving her legs. She wasn't sure what to think of it at first, but now she stays in it for thirty minutes at a time and just jumps and squeels her little heart out. Thanks Nanny and Poppi for the jumperoo!
Notice the pillow under her legs...shes a little short so we had to make some "adjustments."
Aubree's not the only one playing with toys at our house. Daddy has been playing with his video game and Aubs likes to watch.


Phew! It's been a while!!! With school about to start and football season already in full swing, we have been very busy around here. I have a feeling my future posts with include a lot less commentary and more pictures :) A month or so ago, Aubree finally got to meet her friend Parker and Presley. Heather was my roommate from college and Jon and I went to school with Eric. Jon set them up on a date way back when and the rest is history, hehe! They are great friends and it was so fun to watch the babies interact. The twins are twelve days older than Aubree.

All 3

Just the girls :)

The girls went shopping while the boys cooked out!

I think Aubree has had enough pictures

3 Months Already!

I can't believe our baby girl is already 3 months old!!! She is growing so fast and it is amazing to see how much she changes from day to day. She continues to sleep through the night and only gets fussy when she's hungry or really tired. She is holding her head up much better and loves to sit up and look around. She is very much a daddy's girl, he can ALWAYS make her smile! She is beginning to notice the dogs running around and its funny to watch her eyes get really big when they get near her. So far, all three have been really good with her. Let's hope that continues when she starts pulling their tails. It seems like in the last few weeks she has grown a TON! She is outgrowing outfits daily and is now wearing 3-6 month clothes pretty consistently (although she has already grown out of some of those). She has become quite the little chunky monkey and we love it! I can't get enough of her little chunky legs and chubby little cheeks. She has the most beautiful, big, brown eyes and a full head of wild hair! We are loving every minute we are spending with out sweet baby girl!
June 22, 2010...3 months old!

Jon's First Father's Day!

Aubree and Jon had a great time celebrating Father's Day. Aunt Cheryl and Sandee came all the way from California to meet Aubree and were in town for fathers day weekend. After spending some time at our house, we headed to Coppell to meet everyone for a father's day dinner. We went to Celebration (one of Jon's favorite restaurants) and had a wonderful meal! A few weeks before father's day, Jon enjoyed a round of golf for part of his present and then I had a key chain made for him with Aubree's picture in it for him to remember his first fathers day. This sweet little girl is completely in LOVE with her daddy. As soon as he comes in a room and she hears his voice, she starts looking for him. When she sees him, she gets the biggest smile on her face! It is truly amazing to see the love they have for each other. I could not have asked for a more loving father for our daughter. We are blessed beyond belief! We love you daddy!

The day we came home from the hospital. Soooo much in love already!

Having a little chat!
Now that is one big toy dangling from her play mat!

Aubree's First Two Months

Phew! It's been a while!!! I think its about time for an update on little Miss Aubree. Jon and I are completely in love with our sweet little girl and we can't even begin to express how much fun we have had these last few months! The first four weeks or so were ROUGH! Once we found out that she had a milk allergy and we switched her to formula she has been a very happy baby! She still have a little attitude and will let you know when she doesn't get her way, but the formula has really helped and we are so happy she's not in pain anymore. Here are a few highlights from Aubree's first two months (with a few pictures to follow):

-At her 2 month checkup she weighed 11 lbs, 12 ounces (64th percentile) and was 22 inches long (34th percentile). Poor thing is probably going to take after her mommy in the height area!

-She loves playing on her playmat and looking at herself in mirrors. She also likes anything that lights up and plays music.

-She initiated me into the "mommy club" when she POOPED all over my face a few weeks ago. It's a great story now, but not so fun at the time.

-She smiled her first BIG smile on May 2nd and she hasn't stopped since.

-She loves sitting on your lap and staring at you. She smiles, coos, and screams out loud when she gets excited.

-At first, she hated her baths, but once we took her out of the infant hammock and put her down in the water she LOVES it!

-She has the most gorgeous big, brown eyes, chubby little cheeks, and tons of hair!

-SHE SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT! :) She sleeps in her nap nanny which has been a life saver! It helps tremendously with her reflux.

-She is very active and kicks her legs constantly. Her pediatrician said you usually see that more in boys, ha! She told us to expect her gross motor skills (walking, crawling, etc.) to come before her verbal.

-While she is eating, she stares up at you with those pretty it!

-She is getting really good at holding her head up for longer periods of time.

-She is VERY hot natured (like her daddy). She is almost always hot and kicks her blanket off her legs at night.

-She loves car rides as long as you're moving. She would prefer we not stop at lights and stop signs :)

-We don't go anywhere without the PACI! If she spits it out or it falls on the floor we are in trouble! (cue dramatic music and me in slow motion diving for the falling pacifier.

-She enjoys shopping with mommy and will sit in the cart and look around at everyone.

-We keep going back and forth on who she looks like..some people say me while others think Jon.

-She usually takes a good morning nap (a few hours) and then several smaller cat naps in the afternoon.

-She likes being read to. We usually read a few books during the day and then a few at bedtime.

-She hates tummy time or being held on her belly. We have been trying to come up with other creative ways for her to strengthen her neck muscles :)

-My favorite time of the day is when her Daddy comes home! She knows his voice and as soon as she sees him, her eyes get HUGE and she gets the biggest smile on her face. She usually screams out and starts waving her arms around. It just melts my heart! Can we say "Daddy's Girl!"

We are head over heals in love with this sweet baby girl and we feel so blessed that God made her ours! Here are a few pictures from Aubree's first few months:

The shirt says it all!

About to head to lunch with mommy's teaching friends!

This was taken when she was only a few weeks old. She is wearing her gloves because she always scratched her face really bad.
