We love our little girl and now have another one coming soon! Stay tuned...



I'm not actually sure where to begin since it's been over a month since I've written anything. So, here it goes... After 6 good years our oh so faithful camera broke. It's been a great one and provided us with years of memories but we finally bought a new one. I am just now figuring out how to load the pictures onto the computer so that's the main reason I've slacked on updating the blog. :(

Ainsley update: She says new things every day and now repeats things very well. She is becoming a great communicator. She has a lot to say and one of these days soon I'm sure it will come out in the form of full sentences. She has the best, most fun personality and is very outgoing. She waves and says hi to every single person she walks by. She LOVES other kids. She is over the 90th percentile for her weight and "off the charts" for her height (don't know where she gets that from!). She blows kisses and plays peek a boo. She can point to her body parts when asked where they are. She loves to put on other people's shoes and walk around in them (especially loves Daddy's slippers and Mommy's heels). She loves to Skype with people on the computer. She's down to one nap a day now and usually fights that one nap (leaving her often to either fall asleep in the car [hence the 2 pictures below] or fall asleep on one of our chests while watching tv). She loves to drink out of big cups (see pictures above) and is very clear in letting you know that she wants to do it herself (by pushing your hand away and pointing to the table for you to set it down). She loves to sit on the counter and "help" cook. She also helps unload the dishwasher and load the washing machine. She can open the door to the hallway and reach the down button for the elevator (so we're afraid if we forget to lock the door one of these days she'll end up in the lobby or parking garage and we won't even know it!). She's one smart cookie! When we say, "Ainsley, want to brush your teeth?" she puts a hand to her mouth and says, "Aaaahhh" while running to the bathroom. She loves to push things around, including the laundry basket, her dump truck and baby doll stroller. She is very good at sharing and often shares her food and drinks with her dolls too. She likes to flip light switches on and off. When she poops she pats her bum and says, "poopoo" then runs to her bedroom and comes back with a nappy so we can change her. She loves bread. She LOVES milk. When we sit down to eat she reaches both of her hands out to hold ours so we can pray. It is soooo cute! And the list goes on and on and on.

Ainsley's vocabulary (some of it) along with translations when needed: Belly Button= Beba or, sometimes, Bb, Blanket= Bb, Car= Conk conk, Duck= cack cack, I Love You= Ya Yo, Baby, Hi, Bye bye, Knock knock, Night night= Nigh nigh, Banana= Nana, Nappy(Diaper)= Nana, Pretty= Ditta, Mama, Dada, Hot, Hat, Eye, Eeeewww (waving her hand in front of her nose), Poopoo, Peepee, Bum bum= Butt, Coo coo= Her private parts, Cookie= Cook cook, Bonk= Bonbon. I am now drawing a blank on all the other things she says but believe me there are lots. It is really a joy to watch her grow and learn. Each day brings new and exciting things!
