Hello?

The other day David and I were discussing how we used to think it was so funny that every parent thinks their baby is so smart. I mean, we understood that, of course, a parent would think their child was cute, but smart? What can babies really do to qualify them as smart? We were laughing about this because now we get it. Because Aubrey is totally the smartest baby ever. She's gone from just laying there to sitting up, crawling, pulling up, babbling... she can smile, laugh, give kisses... she's developed definite likes and dislikes and has no problem communicating them. She's learned all this and more in less than a year! Wow. How smart! :o)

Her latest stroke of genius is that she mimics. She can mimic sounds, and she has also started mimicking actions. See?Aubrey picked up my cell phone and held it to her ear all by herself!! She even took her pacifier out of her mouth so she could "talk." How cute is that?? Is she not just the smartest thing you've ever seen? Except for your own little genius, I mean...

That's hilarious! I love the last picture with her mouth open and everything (pacifier in hand)! Whenever I've got your blog pulled up at work (on lunch hour of course) people always stop and ooo and awe over your pretty girl!

Well of course she is the smartest ever, she is related to you and you are my little genius! Love you all!

And so it begins!! Hannah started out all cute and innocent like that too. But in a few months time it turned into a phone obsession! Haha! Kids are really the cutest and you're totally right about every parent thinking they have the next genius baby. :o)
