Ainsley is 11 Months Old!

I can't believe that our little sweetie is less than one month away from turning one!! Let the 1st birthday preparations begin! :) It has been such a fun month for our family. We just love it when the weather turns warmer and the days are longer so that we can pretty much live outside and enjoy every minute of it. Ainsley's little personality is in full force and she truly is the sweetest easy-going little princess. We have made several transitions this month like moving from the bumbo seat to the high chair, eating more table food than baby food, and taking a bath in the "big tub" (which she loves b/c she can hang out with Austin and Audrey to join in the splashing fun!) Our little girl is talking more and more and she loves to cry at/for mommy when she needs some attention. We STILL are not officially crawling or pulling up or anything of that nature, but Ainsley is the rolling queen and can get anywhere she wants to by using her own method of the roll. Yes, I am freaking out a little bit that she isn't crawling yet and she is almost a year old, but what can you do? We work with her constantly, but she has decided that she isn't interested in being mobile yet and we just can't force it. (Also part of her little personality coming out.) So, please pray that we start crawling soon so that mommy can stop worrying about it. :) Ainsley has the most amazing smile and the cutest dimples ever! She loves stuffed animals, oranges and green peas and of course her blanket that she can't sleep without. She is such a beautiful girl and we are so blessed that she is our gift from heaven!

This is a pic from when Ainsley decided to boycott baby jar food. :)

Big girl food and big girl chair!

We will do anything to see this girl smile! So cute!

You are such a good mom to be starting the "birthday prepartions" with #3! Of course JR had a big party, but poor Kyle and Reed got a homemade cake after Christmas dinner!

What a big girl. I completely understand about having an independent personality displaying itself!! Don't worry too much about her not crawling, especially if she is trying to talk and communicate. Miss you guys!

It's so hard to believe Ainsley is almost one! Don't worry about the crawling, she will do it when SHE decides she's ready. Just enjoy!
