Little Miss Rollie Pollie

Time goes way too fast. When we were in Canyon awaiting the move, I thought time was standing still! (even though it too flew by). Now, each day brings on a whole new set of tricks Little Miss tries to perfect. She so prefers to be standing. Her little legs have become quite strong as Daddy helps her keep her balance.
Also, she has not been the sleeper that Andrew was when he was her age. He sleeps like a champ, through any loud noise Ainsley and I can create. She, on the other hand, does not. The doctor suggested that we start her on cereal and baby food at night to help her sleep better. Well, I am not sure about the sleeping better part (it has worked a little), but she sure loves her sweet potatoes...as evident by her sweet little messy face here.
Sitting up like a big Girl! OK...so she is not completely perpendicular to the floor, but we are working on it. We flip her off the couch as she lands in this position, which she holds for quite a while until slowly unfolding to the floor. :)
Yes, she is a thumb sucker, but only when she is trying to put herself to sleep...which should not be in the middle of feeding if I can interject my two cents! I believe this was carrot night. I would fall asleep too to get out of finishing my carrots. Like mother, like daughter.
Here is Ainsley's newest trick. She has really gotten good at this over the past couple of days. She can now get up on all fours and then proceeds to rock back and forth. She gets the biggest grin on her face...so proud of herself! Not crawling yet, but I think she is trying to figure out how to keep up with her brother! :)
Here is a culmination of all her new tricks. Ainsley has gotten quite proficient in rolling. The living room floor poses no challenge for this girl. Enjoy!
