He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

16 Things About My 16 Month Old!

I saw that one of my sweet new friends put a list of fun things that her toddler (thanks, Kristen!) is doing and I thought I would do the same for our Ainsley. I just can't believe that she is 16 months old! Here are some fun things about her that I wanted to share.

1. Ainsley is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. She wakes up happy, smiles all day and goes to bed excited to end the day in one of her favorite places (her bed!)

2. She loves all kinds of music. She will clap at pretty much anything, but when we turn the music on she bobs her head and claps like crazy. It's so cute!

3. Ainsley is not walking yet. :( BUT we are seeing progress. She is a busy little girl and LOVES to get into our cabinets and the pantry. (I haven't figured out what the fascination is with the pantry is yet, but she is always in there.)

4. She loves for me to read her books (though she doesn't sit in one place for too long) and it is so fun to watch her turn the pages and babble like she is "reading".

5. Her two favorite people are definitely her big bro and sis Austin and Audrey. I love the time that her and Audrey are getting to have while Austin is at school two days a week. They are forming a neat bond and Austin will always be the big brother that she will adore forever.

6. She sleeps with her blanket, a stuffed lamb and her two fingers in her mouth. As long as she has these 4 things, she is one happy girl. :)

7. She is by far our BEST eater right now! She will eat pretty much anything we put in front of her and I love that she doesn't complain about any of it...yet. ;)

8. Ainsley LOVES bath time! It really is so precious how happy she is while in the tub playing with her big sis. She usually is not pleased when we take her out either.

9. She has the sweetest smile with some big ole' dimples. We will do pretty much anything to get this beautiful girl to smile!

10. She also is a very laid back kiddo and always has no problem going with the flow (which is such a blessing! We are a pretty busy family.)

11. I love how when I sit to rock her every night, she will look up at me and touch my mouth to tell me she is ready for me to sing what I sing to her every night ~ Jesus Loves Me. Melt. My. Heart!

12. Two things that Ains is always trying to get her hands on and that we are always hiding from her are the t.v. remote and Mommy's phone. She will see one of these things and go AFTER it. She can't wait to push all the buttons and record some random show that we never watch onto our DVR. Good times. :)

13. Every one who meets this little girl falls in love with her immediately. There is just something about those eyes and that smile of hers.

14. Ainsley is our little encourager. Always clapping and smiling. I can look at her at any point in the day and she will start bouncing up and down while clapping excitedly. She will definitely be the cheerleader of the bunch! ;)

15. She is also a great cuddler and still wants to be held as much as possible. She will follow me all around the house just so she can reach her arms out to me for a "ride".

16. Ainsley is such a true blessing to our family! The Lord knew EXACTLY what HE was doing when He surprised us with this precious little angel. She is just what our 'A-Team' needed! Love you, sweet girl!
