Already a year and what a sweet, bright spot this precious little girl has added to our lives! What started as a squishy, pink, wrinkly bundle has blossomed into a walking, talking, smiling, pesky little girl that is truly a blessing from God! From her smiles when we go to get her out of her bed, to pulling the books off the shelf, to blowing a zurbert on your leg and then laughing, she has the most precious little personality. And believe me, she has her daddy and her brother right where she wants them...and me for that matter! I pray that the next year brings many more wonderful smiles, memories, and special days. Ainsley, you are so loved!

A grand morning of egg hunting was had by all even the littlest one. We headed to San Antonio to spend Easter with my family. The weather was rainy, so we hunted inside. That did not seem to bother the hunters one bit. Jasmine and Andrew were old hat at the egg hunting process, so they took off. Ainsley was a bit unsure at first, but caught one quickly to the whole find an egg, then put it in your basket thing. The Easter Bunny put Gerber Graduate Puffs in her eggs, so she was on a mission to find them and chow down.
Andrew's eggs were filled with either candy, money, or riddles. It is becoming a family tradition to leave riddles masking the location of a larger surprise. Solve the riddle and one will have the location of your treat. He loves these and was so surprised to find a new "Spiderman Bad Guy", a race car track, learning workbooks (which he loves by the way...not just a "Oh, your mom's a teacher" gift), and Yahtzee Jr. What fun, what fun!
Her new found independence is so fun to watch! She is finding new things everyday, which bring more smiles and laughter for all of us! With her walking legs going for about 2 weeks now, she is getting more and more confident, even attempting a bit of running...from her brother of course!
They grow up so fast!
Gymnastics lessons are really paying off. Andrew loves to flip, spin, or hang from anything sturdy enough to hold his weight. All who see him preforming his newest feet turn and ask me, "Is he supposed to be doing that?" Even Josh came running in the house asking the first time he witnessed the trick in our back yard. What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. And stronger Andrew is getting. To my amazement, he even does pull-ups. I guess if I only weighed 32 pounds, I could do a pull-up too!
We pulled Andrew's "door" out of the attic and cleaned it up. Ainsley loves it...and so does Andrew. They both enjoy playing with it and answering the doorbell for one another.
There is one huge piece of jungle gym for 7 to 12 year olds. Andrew, the 4 year old, LOVED it...especially these "monkey bars" that spin around as you cross them!
