She is pretty pigeon toed, I have asked the doctor and she said hopefully she will grow out of it.  We are starting some exercises at home.
She has so much more of an emotional range than Griffin.  She's a girl and we know it.  She will cry over the littlest thing, and cuddle like crazy. 
She tells me she loves me all the time, out of the blue.  It melts my heart every time!
She plays by herself so well.  She is constantly involved in imagination play, even alone.
She is a girlie girl.  I couldn't be more proud :)
Ansley Elizabeth, we love you!!

Mama's New Ride

I got a new car on Thursday!!  I absolutely LOVE it!! It is a Buick Enclave with all the bells and whistles. 

The Armada was having some issues and it was better to get rid of it than put a bunch of money into it.  This car is amazing, it rides so well.

Ansley's 3rd Birthday Party

Ansley chose a Tinkerbell theme for her third birthday party.  It turned out super cute.  We decided to just have it at the house since we don't know that many people yet.  (however those that we have met are amazing!!)  We were supposed to have a jump jump and play outside, but the issues of a March birthday, you never know what the temp will be.  It ended up being cold and rainy all day.  So, we canceled the jump jump and ended up partying inside.  It worked out for the best.  We all (kids and parents) had a great time. 
The birthday girl

Modeling her fairy wings

The most adorable cake, thanks to Jenny Layne Bakery and Pinterest!

The kids made magic wands

The wands, wings and headbands were their party favor

We even had three babies all about the same age

LOVE this pic!

Paw Paw even came down to the party (also note that I asked them to make the actual cake pink, they nailed it)

We had such an amazing time.  What a great birthday!!  Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Happy 3rd Birthday Ansley

Our sweet little girl turned 3 today.  Where has the time gone?  I seriously can not believe it has already been 3 years, yet it feels like she has been apart of my life forever.  I love this little girl to pieces. 
seeing all of her goodies when she woke up

Opening the Snow White doll Griffin picked out for her

We sang Happy Birthday over a sprinkled donut

Griff didn't mind the special treat

G helped me put the presents out before he went to bed. 

We have her well check tomorrow, so I will posts those stats tomorrow.

After Griffin trying on that wig, it reiterated my claim that he looks a lot like me as a kid.  What do you think???

Thursday, March 14, 2013


Another fun present arrived in the mail today!!  My cousin Dana, her family and my Aunt Gale and Uncle Ken sent Ansley a Merliah costume.  Merliah is a Barbie Mermaid movie that Ansley LOVES.  This gift is too precious. The wig is to die for!!

Checking her gorgeous self out in the mirror!!  :)

Two boys are having just as much fun with the wig!!

Stickers from Cousin Ginny

Cousin Ginny sent Ansley a sweet card and some stickers for her birthday.  (P.S....Can NOT believe my baby girl will be three in 5 days!!)  I snapped a few pictures to send to Ginny.  What a crazy house we live in.  ;)

Chalk Fun

We decided to embrace the sort of warm weather and test out our new side walk chalk.  So much fun!

Griffin's alphabet.  He only needed help with a couple of letters

If you look close, you can see all of our names

Ryan took Griffin fishing yesterday morning.  They had a blast.  Although they didn't catch anything, it was still good bonding time.  Apparently full of laughs too, the wind caught Daddy's chair and blew it into the lake.  Haha!!
