Thursday, July 05, 2007We hope everyone's Fourth of July was full of fun and relaxation... we did what any normal family does on the 4th. We went to the beach (despite the threat of thunderstorms), had a cookout with friends, let Aubrey have chips and cupcakes (at least they were red, white and blue) for dinner and made her stay up way past her bedtime to see daddy put on a truly stunning display of fireworks. And of course, she woke up the next morning wanting cupcakes for breakfast!
The summer is flying by and I can tell this will be Aubrey's favorite season. We can't seem to drag her away from the beach or the pool, where she is turning into a real daredevil. She runs head-first into the waves of the Atlantic and only stops to wonder why everyone isn't running as fast as she is. She throws herself off the side of the pool like Superman and even when she comes up coughing and gagging we hear, "Again, again!"
Her speech is really something to behold. We have full conversations and she still has another month and a half until her second birthday. This past week she likes to end everything she says with, "Ok?" "I go outside, Ok?" "Aubrey no take a nap now, Ok?" "I have the keys to the car and a twenty, Ok?" Well, maybe not that last one... but judging from the pictures, I 'm sure it won't be long!
