Happy ONE, Aubrey girl!!


You're the perfect ending to a chapter I know I'll miss fiercely. I hope you chase adventure and pursue what gives you joy. I hope you find the beauty in simplicity and genuinely enjoy the moments before you. I hope you laugh often and dream big dreams. I hope the bond between you and your sister grows even more and you always hold tight to one another. I hope you are confident in yourself and treat others with kindness. I hope you embrace the messy and always know that I will hold your hand and encourage you every step of the way. I hope you never take life too seriously and find time for the things that make you feel alive. I hope you know how much you are loved not only by myself, your dad and your sister, but also by the Lord. You have a purpose, my love. Live it. Your first year has been breathtakingly beautiful, happiest birthday Aubrey girl. 

We keep journals for the girls and I had to share her birthday entry just in case they ever get misplaced.. and now for some fun! 

This was super exciting to make, I just might've squealed when all the pictures were added in. She's just SO much fun. Loves to wake up Rae, play outside and eat alllll the pinecones and climb on anything she can. She's picked up on nodding her head "yes" and shaking her head "no" especially when it comes to the dog bowls. Her favorite game is peek a boo and will often steal clothes out of ANY closet and run around the house with them over her head so you say Peek a Boo! We've learned that girlfriend loves food or any variety and is usually finishing her sister's plate. She loves picking up things and handing them to you and saying, "taaaanks" over and over and over again :) Dance parties with Rae are one of my favorite sites and hearing the giggles from the room next door. 

She really dislikes not being able to run wherever she wants. We're always having to scoop her up before she hits the road or the mud. Not a fan of not being held after 3pm and will literally just hold onto your legs until you pick her up. 

We love you so much, Aubrey! 
I can't wait to celebrate her birthday this weekend. We did have a quick smash cake trial run and girlfriend just ate all the peaches while Rae happily helped show her how to really smash a cake.
