Ainsley News

January 7, 2009

I thought you might enjoy a few updates:

  • Ainsley’s still teething. She can now jam her own fingers into her mouth, so that helps.
  • We have a thumb sucker. Sometimes.
  • Ainsley officially rolled over on Monday, January 5. It was really exciting. And then she needed to nap.
  • She loves listening to stories. I have been reading to her for about 45 minutes a day. She likes picture books, rhyming books, and even the unillustrated Winnie the Pooh chapter book. She’s a captive audience for anything I read aloud.
  • Don’t think Dad misses all the fun. He reads to her EVERY night for her bath. She loves that combo: water to sit in and her Dad’s voice reading from the Jesus Story Book Bible.
  • We have a good routine going. Dinner. Play time. Bath. Goodnight kisses for Dad. Nursing a little with Mom in the rocking chair in the dark of her room. And then to bed she goes with two blankets. Lately, she’s even been able to put herself back to sleep if she awakes.
  • We’re still doing overnight feedings. Except for last Friday night. That was awesome.
  • She’s finally in her next-sized diapers. They are cute cute cute.
  • Ainsley’s doing a little “kissing” with me. It’s very slobbery.
  • She is starting to like peek-a-boo. And she really likes “Where Is Thumbkin” with her Dad.
  • Ainsley’s getting really strong. She can lift her head up to let you know she wants to sit up and then usually pull herself up to stand. Standing is her favorite.
  • And finally, she’s starting to laugh a little. She comes closest when I blow kisses all over her tummy and neck. She also likes to squeal when she sees her Dad.

That’s the latest on Ainsley Ruth. How about you?

    How fun! Sitting up and kissing and laughing. In my opinion there is nothing on this earth more precious than a baby giggling. 🙂
