Ever since chatting with Aubrey about our wedding day she has been all about getting married. She comments on any picture she sees of a couple on their wedding day. When playing with her dolls or babies she talks about getting married. It is so cute. But, then one day she came out like this...

Aubrey Rose, you are quite the social little butterfly. You don't mind the hour of the day (or night), if there are people near, you want to be up and playing. You are quite the trooper with our sometimes later nights for family nights or our bible study evenings. You can hang with the best of us! :) The best part about if you stay up late, is you are still fun in the morning!! I am so thankful for that about you. Aubrey, you light up when you get to meet new friends. You REALLY light up when you get to be with your best friends. But the time I see you light up the most when you get to be with our sweet family. You have such a special bond with each family member. Whether grandparent or aunt or uncle or cousins, it is just adorable to see you express your love for them.
You are quite the sleeper. You must have got this wonderful trait from Daddy. Daddy is a great sleeper as well. You usually go to bed about 8 or 8:30 and you wake up at about 7:30am. You still love your naps. You usually sleep from about 2-5pm every afternoon. I really hope you keep this up for a REALLY long time! I can get a lot done during those hours!!
This picture was when I knew it was time for a... BIG girl bed! You moved into this when you were 2 1/2.
Aubrey Rose, you are quite the performer. You like to sing. You like to dance. You like to have lots of attention. :) It is VERY common to hear from you all through out the day, "Mommy, watch this! Watch this, Mommy!" You are our pink girlie girl! You love anything PINK and princess! Sometimes you throw us for a loop and say orange or green or something different than pink. I am sure my eyes bug out in amazement when that happens, since you are usually insist on everything being pink. You love bracelets and shoes and anything that matches. It has to match!
You are an amazing BIG sister!! You have definitely exceeded my hopes and expectations. You have been nothing but sweet and caring for your little brother. You have made us so proud.
Happy Birthday sweet girl! You are officially "free" years old! :)

We are adjusting really well. Actually way better than I had expected. Big sister has been a huge fan of her little brother. She has been so sweet, tender, helpful and simply adorable with him. Austin has been just as sweet to us. He is feeding a million times better than I remember Aubrey Rose to have been. He has been sleeping better than I expected. He gave us one night that he thought we should be up from 12-5am, but the other days I haven't even felt like I need a nap! I realize we are only one week into this, so I shouldn't talk too much!! But, it sure has been a nice way to begin this new season in our life. We are blessed beyond words!
These cousins are going to grow up to be best buddies. Jed and Austin are 3 months apart. It is going to be so fun watching these two grow up.
Our first morning home, the four of us were out of the house by 8:30am since we needed to get some blood work done for Austin. He had some jaundice, but by Thursday his levels were decreasing. Praise the Lord!!
and Auntie Blair!
One of our favorite moments was when Big Papa finally got to meet his first grandson. Big Papa had to fly out the morning Austin was born. He had a busy week in DC, Atlanta and North Carolina. We were so glad for him to be home and for him to meet his grandson.
