My Sweet Aubrey - Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to You,
Happy Birthday to You,
Happy Birthday to Aubrey,
Happy Birthday to You!!!

I wanted to share with you a glimpse of who Aubrey is...
She was born on Monday, September 6, 1999. She was born 8 weeks early and was a fighter from the beginning.
She is beautiful and has been since the day she was born. She is fun and lively, yet enjoys her quiet time alone. When she was younger she could sit in her room and look through books and play with her toys for hours all by herself.
Yet Aubrey loves people, and when she loves you, she loves you with everything in her. She loves very deeply. She would rather have only a few people around her that she knows really well than be in a room with a lot of people. If you give her your time and attention, she becomes deeply attached. She loves security. She loves family.
Yet Aubrey is very, let's say, spunky. She has always had comprehension far beyond her years. And she can reply with comments that you would never expect from someone her age. She is feisty. Pick on her sister when she doesn't want you to, and she will retaliate. Make fun of her and she will have a pretty good comeback. She will tell you like she feels it. You usually don't have to guess what she is thinking.
Yet again, she may be feisty, but she is also really soft. She loves to be held. She gives the best hugs. She loves to cuddle. She loves touch. She loves soft blankets and stuffed animals. Anything to do with touch. She loves pink, purple, and her latest favorite color is yellow. She loves being a girl. She likes to dress up and go places. She likes to have short hair. She loves riding her bike. She loves to eat fruit. She loves chips. She would rather eat chips than dessert.
She gets concerned with what other people think. She loves to chew gum. She loves to help her daddy. She likes to eat shrimp. She loves to draw. She loves to swim.
She loves going to Disney World. Her dream vacation is to go to Hawaii.
She absolutely loves dogs and is so happy to have Maggie living with us now. She loves to wear skirts. She loves to watch TV and listen to music. She likes to snack. She likes to have her picture taken and to pose for the pictures.
She is complex.
She is wonderful.
She is a gift.

This is the Bible verse I claim for Aubrey:
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

This song is the first song that starts playing when you turn on our blog, unless you have yours muted!! Today I was listening to the song and just got emotional. I really like this song but it took on a whole new meaning today when I listened to it and thought of my "baby" who is turning 10 years old today and growing way too fast. I don't want to take one precious moment for granted.

Happy Birthday my sweet Aubrey!
You are very loved!!
