She Walks!!!

As of yesterday Aubrey has officially taken her first steps!! 

A Week of Family

Last week was a VERY busy week, but a very fun week for us with family.  Sunday we found out my aunt along with my mom's aunt and uncle (who came from Argentina) were coming to visit for five days.  On Wednesday we found out that Krystal and Jon were also going to drive all night from Utah and stay with us until Saturday.  So, I kicked it into high gear and got the room and the house ready for our wonderful visitors!  This was the first time Krystal and Jon had the opportunity to stay with us in our guest room that we finally put together (it only took us two years!).  It was fun to wake up with them in the mornings.

Thursday night was a whole family dinner, and Friday we got to go to Apple Hill with Krystal and Jon.  it was a beautiful autumn day and we couldn't have asked for a happier little girl as well :).

This may look like Aubrey is sticking her tongue out at someone, but she's actually showing them her teeth :)

Saturday was also a busy day.  Saturday Brandon's side of the family came up from Modesto for an early dinner at our house.  It was fun to see them and for them to finally meet Aubrey!  We got to also meet Allison and baby Pierce!

Sunday was our final day with our LA/Argentina family, so we went over to my parent's house for pizza that evening.

Overall, a VERY busy week but so good to see and spend time with all this family.  We had a great time :).

Eleven Months

We just can't believe our little one is already almost a year!!!  Time has flown by and she has changed so much!

At 11 months Aubrey:
~ Loves to push big objects around.  Her favorite is pushing her bin of toys around. 
~ Is a VERY inquisitive little girl!  She wants to see and touch everything! 98% of everything she finds goes directly into her mouth.

~ Loves to hug any stuffed animal now.  One of her favorites was Jon's old Michigan bear :).

~ Learned how to get snacks out of her snack trap cup
~ Climbs down backwards off of a couch or anything high.  She is getting pretty good at climbing up and down stairs
~ Has five teeth now
~ Love to get into tiny places...still. 

~ Took her first plane ride.  Destination: Utah
~ Ate chicken for the first time and didn't like it so much.  We'll keep trying :)
~ Stands by herself for a few seconds at a time

~ Shakes her head up and down for "yes."  She's already learned "no" earlier :(

~ Don't really know how to describe it, but when you sing to her she tries to sinig along sometimes but she sings in this light, high voice.  Makes your heart just melt :)

~ Loves to walk around when you hold both of her hands and she wants to go fast!
~ Is getting hurt more than ever with how fast she gets into things.  She pulls herself up on everything, but the tile floor isn't the best landing spot :(

~ She is an extremely busy girl and doesn't slow down for a minute, but she entertains us more and more everyday.  We just love her to pieces!

Utah ~ Thanksgiving Point

On our last full day, we went to this place called Thanksgiving point.  A fun little place that was all decorated for fall.  It had beautiful flowers and landscaping everywhere so we took advantage of the grounds for some pictures.  First fall pictures for Aubrey :).

After a long day, our last night was spent relaxing.

Swinging Away

Aubrey loves to swing.  Luckily Jon and Krystal have a few swings around them where they live, so we took advantage of them :).
