Aubrey at 10 Months

It is hard to believe that Aubrey is already 10 months old. She is a busy little girl and her personality is really starting to shine. Here are a few things I want to remember about Aubrey. (I do this because I am not good at writing in her baby book).
Aubrey does not like to wear a bib or be fed with a spoon. This makes for some pretty messy meal times. She basically skipped over pureed food and enjoys real food. Some of her favorite foods are: Oatmeal, Yogurt, Rice (this maybe b/c she lives in China), Edamamme and  Green Beans (she especially loves her house helpers).
She is officially a walker! On the playground this week she decided it is not as fun to sit in her stroller or be held by mom, so she just took off. She has not stopped since then. It is funny to see this bald baby walking around after her sister.
Aubrey is a great napper. She takes two long naps a day and goes down very easy. We will not talk about her nighttime sleeping. However, we are making some progress. Aubrey usually wakes up at 5:30 as happy as can be. I think she just likes to have some undivided attention with her daddy before work.
Her favorite word is dada. She also will say mama and bye bye. She chatters all the time and she still will growl at you from time to time. Aubrey LOVES her daddy. She takes off towards the door when she hears him come home from work.

Aubrey's eyes are still blue, but we don't think they will stay.

Aubs really doesn't have a favorite toy. She prefers anything that her big sister is playing with at the time. She has taken years off my life by always putting things her her mouth. She can find the smallest piece of fuzz and get it to her mouth before I can get across the room to sweep it out. She has tried to eat a caterpillar and I am frequently fishing out stickers, old crusty food or leaves out of her mouth.

Aubrey and Brynn are really starting to play together. They will go back to Brynn's room and spend 30 minutes playing. It is funny to hear Brynn tell Aubrey what to do and shush her when she starts to cry. I heard Aubrey wail while I was writing this post. I went back to Brynn's room and Brynn was dressing Aubrey up. She had managed to get the outfit over Aubrey's head and one arm in :)

Happy Easter

We are winding down our Easter Celebration as everyone else is just beginning theirs. This morning the girls enjoyed all of their Easter basket goodies. Brynn loves her Fancy Nancy Easter book and Aubrey has enjoyed reading her Pat the Bunny Book. 

Before fellowship we joined several families for a yummy Brunch. Matt was excited because someone brought made-from-scratch biscuits and gravy. (made-from-scratch biscuits from me = hard bricks)

 Me and the girls on our RIDE. Not many people get to ride a scooter on Easter Sunday! We have the best driver in China!!

 With full bellies, we made our way to fellowship. Not sure how it happened, but Brynn ended up on stage singing "Zacchaeus was a Wee Little Man" with another little girl and then requesting "Row Row Row your Boat" as the next song (maybe next year)!

Aubrey had a great first Easter. She enjoyed some chicken and dressing, green beans and new potatoes for dinner.

 Aubrey has also decided she needs to start walking to keep up with her big sister. This week she has taken a few steps. Her crawl is still her favorite mode of transportation, but I think we will have a walker soon.
