Aubrey loves music and loves to dance. It started around 6 months when she would hear the Adam's family theme song and bob her head from side to side (as we've tried to show here, but she gets shy in front of the camera)...
But she quickly caught on, and by 8 months dances by bending her knees (as shown here)...

But that wasn't enough soccer, so we went to Ryan's alumni soccer game on Friday (this one did go in our favor as the alumni won 4-3). Ryan played very well and I was impressed with how quickly he ran during the game having not run for nearly a year. Then I saw him after the game and he was really feeling the effects. He fell asleep on the couch at 8 that night and he deserved the rest. Ryan was also honored as a SVU legacey athlete...we're so proud of him!

Gabe, Mercy, and Aubrey in a traffic jam (literally because Gabe loves to walk around the table again and again and Aubrey was getting in his way). Everywhere you look...BABIES!
This is just a first time mother speaking, but Aubrey is really learning! She will focus intently on something until she figures it out. Our little Einstein!
Mercy and Aubrey both wanted to play with the puppy (it is so cute to hear Gabe say 'doggie' :), and then, if almost on cue, they both stopped. It was cute!

Ryan and Moana
The beautiful Moana, whom isn't really ours at all, but is an absolutely wonderful, and adorable baby! Eventually we'll have another one of our own, but for now we're happy with just getting to hold Moana!

Aubrey made two new best friends...Georgi and Hannah and they had a blast together. Hannah taught Aubrey to climb up the stairs...and I am glad we don't have any stairs in our house!
By the end of the day Aubrey was exhausted but didn't want to stop! She gets more curious as the days go by and appears to be a genius baby (I'm her mother so I get to say things like that, but this time it really is true :)!
We are excited to get to go back to Texas for Thanksgiving when the whole Smith family will be there (minus Rod, Jamie, and their then 8 month old bun on the oven)!

For those who know the adventures we've endured in remodeling our home, they are really getting juicy now. Yesterday was a big day in (and out of) the house with the new kitchen cabinets being installed, and the gigantic pine tree in the yard being cut down. Our yard looks twice as big now and our kitchen is starting to look fantastic! We are having maple cabinets put in, which look great with the white appliances and tile floor, and will look fantastic with the new countertops and sink/faucet (which they will install either tonight or tomorrow). Basically, it is a brand spanking new kitchen and I can't wait to have it finished! Ryan surprised me while I was in TX visiting Mary by installing the dishwasher!!! What a sweetheart...just another reminder why I married him! We have before pictures of the house but will wait to post them until we have some after pictures to go along with them! I can't wait to be done with all the remodeling!
