I'm not sure if I've mentioned it here on the blog yet, but Aubrey is in LOVE with "Finding Nemo." I think it's the vibrant colors more than anything, but the more we watch it, the more I think she just likes it because she likes it!

I'm not sure if we just guessed right, or if she's grown into it, but this kid is all about the fishes! Her little playmat we got from the Orums at the shower is ocean themed, her bouncer is ocean themed, and several of her outfits are "fishy"... I didn't even realize it until the other day, but it all goes together! LOL

Anyway, so we were out running errands this weekend and went by Petco to pick up some things for Squirt the turtle, and Aubrey was in heaven!! She just loved looking at all the fishies swimming around, and seemed ecpecially excited to see the clown fish. We're thinking there may be a salt water aquarium in our future somewhere... LOL

Seeing the fish...
Looking a little confused at first...

Oh, wait! It's Nemo! LOL

We can't WAIT to take her to the downtown aquarium when she's a little bigger!! I just know she's going to love that! It's such a fun place even for adults, I can only imagine how tickled it will make our little fish loving girl!

The Purple Pixie Princess

I've been dressing Aubrey in some of my onesie designs so I have some "action shots" for marketing, etc. This little photo shoot quickly turned into something much more fun and much more precious than I could have imagined. She's such a doll!!

Potbelly Fred

Potbelly Fred is a raccoon. Well, a stuffed one of course! He was Jerry's favorite when he was growing up, and he slept with him every night. Last weekend, we found him in a box and I decided to revive him!

He needed a little mending and a good cleaning, so I put him back together and gave him a good cleaning with the always miraculous OXY cleaner. He was looking better already, so I tossed him into the wash with the baby soap and then the dryer to fluff him up. I brushed out all of his fur, so he would be nice and fluffy again and soft enough to cuddle!

Needless to say, Jerry was pretty happy to see his old friend "good as new" again. Of course the real reason he was so happy was because he wanted to share his old buddy with Aubrey. Even though she's still a little young to know what's up, we set Fred up in her room to watch over her until she's ready to let him cuddle HER to sleep too. :)

Our little Bookworm

Since the beginning, (and when I say beginning I mean like in-utero) we've been reading to Aubrey. Now that she's doing some supported sitting up she's having alot of fun reading the books "all by herself"! What a little bookworm she's becoming! ;)

"Reading" her own version of the story to Momma

 Turning the pages "all by myself"

Listening intently and ready for more!

Aubrey's first solids!

We had Aubrey's 4 month checkup this week, and despite the terrible shots, we did get some exciting news... it's time to start feeding her cereal! We were so excited and just couldn't wait!! 

 These faces just kill me! We were laughing SO hard!

 She even did pretty well with her first sippy cup of water! :)

Enough of this mess! Can I just eat my finger instead?
