My Little Fashion Queen

Aubrey has been doing the craziest thing lately. I've been meaning to write a post about it, partly because I think it's so funny and I don't want to forget about it, and partly because Aubrey is brilliant and I want you all to know. Ha!

Aubrey remembers outfits.

What I mean by that is that she remembers what outfit she wore on occasions that were big deals to her. The first time she did this was after David's sisters had come to visit shortly after Jude was born. Aubrey had a blast playing with her little cousin, Caroline, and apparently it made a big impression.Ever since that day, whenever Aubrey sees that shirt she says, "Play Caroline shirt." The first time she did it, I had no idea what she was talking about at first. Finally, a light bulb went off in my head and I asked her if she meant that that was the shirt she wore when she played with Caroline. She nodded her head yes.

Then just the other day, I was getting her dressed. She started pulling on her dress and said, "Aubey dress hospital." Yall, it was the dress that she wore when she came to the hospital to meet Jude for the first time!! This was 5 weeks after Jude was born! I couldn't believe it.

A couple of Saturdays ago, Aubrey woke up early and David took her to Wal-Mart with him. She has only been to Wal-Mart a handful of times in her her life. I'm a Target girl. Anyway, she has not stopped talking about "Wa Wa-Mart" since. Apparently, going to Wal-Mart with Daddy was a big deal to her. Yesterday, there was a pile of her clean clothes on the floor waiting to be put up (don't comment on my housekeeping skills - haha) and she was going through the pile. She found the shirt that she wore to Wal-Mart that day and said, "Shirt Wa Wa-Mart." Oh my gosh! Do yall think that is crazy or is it just me? I know I'm her mom and I think everything she does is brilliant, but come on!

This is hilarious to me because I have always had this weird thing where I remember what I was wearing for certain occasions for YEARS after the fact. Not because of pictures. I'm talking about occasions that weren't huge deals, but for some reason just stuck in my head. I don't think it's anything spectacular that I remember that sort of thing, but I'm not less than 2 years old either.

We know she didn't get this trait from her daddy. When she says this stuff, David looks at me and asks, "Is that really what she was wearing?" Haha! She gets most of her other smarts from him though, I promise.

I think that's AMAZING! She could be the next Rachel Zoe...only much healthier and way more wholesome - ha! Of course, I do that too....I remember what I wore on certain dates with Jeffrey (And we dated for 11+ years....) or certain doctor's appts, and other special events without looking at pictures, but like you said....I'm not less than two years old! That is crazy! Please, please keep us posted on if she continues this "trend" :)

Oh, wow. I do that TOO, about remembering stuff I wore even without pictures. I can't believe Aubrey can already do it, though. She's clearly gifted. No need to worry about homeschooling Jude, Aubrey will take care of that!

That is very cute and very impressive. I have been followering you blog for awhile and I love to read the stories.

Wow, that IS impressive. I do the same thing, but I always thought it was because of pictures taken. She is smart and will be a fashion queen for sure! :)
