3 Day Weekend!

The doctor I work for had a family emergency this week, so we are closed today. Aubrey's daycare is also closed today for a teacher's work day, so we're spending the day together! So far we've had a great day! We played outside some this morning & then went over to Cassidi's house. Cass was babysitting her 6 week old niece. I thought it would be interesting to see how Aubs was around a little baby. She just stared at her for the most part. She did get a little jealous when I was holding her. She kept pulling on my shirt for me to hold her. lol Good thing it will still be a few years before she has to play the role of Big Sister!

Tomorrow we are going to Brady's 5th birthday party. They are having a big inflatable water slide, so I know Aubs will have a blast! Brady is the sweet little boy of one of our patients at work. I have become close with a lot of our patients & their kiddos :)

Sunday, we are probably going to go to the water park in Arkadelphia. I have 2 "free" passes left from Aubs birthday party, so we need to use them up before the summer is over! Aubrey always loves to swimming aka "put her feet in water!"

When Aubrey wakes up from her nap, we are going shopping! :) She is a girly girl & usually loves to shop with me. She will look things over & say "That's cute!" haha :)

We're looking forward to another 3 day weekend next weekend for Labor Day! We will be heading to my parents house for a going away party for my brother. He leaves Sept 8th to go to Georgia for basic training. We will miss him bunches!

Guess I should finish cleaning.. more later :)

Life These Days...

Well, Aubrey went to bed at 6:15 tonight so I figured no better time to blog than now! Nathan had to leave early for work this morning (6:30) & she heard him & woke up SUPER early for her, so she was WORN out tonight! First, I'm going to play a little bit of catch up.

Aubs is doing great! She is sooooooo vocal these days omg. Why we paid hundreds of dollars to get tubes in her ears, I'll never know??? Just kidding, of course to help her with the millions of ear infections she had... but seriously it is quite humorous to think back to how worried I was that she wasn't talking because she NEVER stops talking now!! She is loving her new daycare. She has 2 best friends that she talks about often. "Ne Ne" aka Sydney & Tucker :) I am glad she is loving it!! She is moving up to the next class on Monday. Her teachers tell me often that she is very smart! Sometimes she is too smart for her own good! She constantly spells her name now. She can also count to 10 but often skips 5 for some reason. She knows most of her colors but her favorite is definitely "yellow". Even when she knows something is NOT yellow, she'll say "That yellow Mommy?". :) Healthwise, she is doing pretty good right now. She is on Pulmicort breathing treatments once a day right now for her asthma. We may have to increase her back to twice a day in the fall/winter, which is her worst time of the year, but maybe we'll be able to get by with just once a day! We also recently started her on Singulair, which is a chewable tablet that will help with her asthma AND allergies! She calls it her "night night medicine candy" ;) We are hoping that between her breathing treatments & the Singulair, she will have a MUCH better fall/winter this year! Fingers crossed!!

As for me & Nathan, we're doing great as well. We are loving our new house! Nathan is in the LONG application process at Benton Police Department right now. He first applied in April. Since then, he has done a written test, physical, home interview, & oral board interview. We are now waiting for a letter saying what rank he is for the next available position. We are just praying about everything & we know God will lead us in the right direction.

Well, now that I'm all caught up, I will try to post daily about what we did & of course include pictures of Miss Aubs!!

Have a good night, everyone!

Better Blogger...

Yep, I've said it before & I'm saying it again.. I'm going to try to be a better blogger!! I hate when I get out of writing on here. It is really so much fun to look back & read what was going on in our lives in the past. So here's to being a better blogger, AGAIN!!

This is going to be super short. My sweet girl is asleep & my hubby is passed out on the couch. I'm thinking they have the right idea & I'm about to head off to dream land too!

Tomorrow I'll post pics of Miss Aubs & everything she is up to these days. So check back soon!!! :)
