People have told me that Ainlsey looks just like her Grandpa Wilkins. I didn't really see it until this past week. One morning after breakfast, Grandpa was holding her and the resemblance was undeniable. She really was a mini Wayne. I tried to get a good picture, later in the week, but as luck would have it she wasn't in the mood to cooperate. The pictures turned out cute though.
Since I am on the subject of Ainlsey I would like to say how much I love this little girl. I wasn't exactly looking forward to a little girl, I had been having so much fun with a little boy, but I wouldn't trade her for the world. Although she is a little more expensive (I have a serious shopping addiction when it comes to little girl clothes), but she is such a blessing in our home.
Ainsley has such an easy going personality and loves to smile and laugh. She definitely is a momma's girl (which I LOVE), but she also is quite the fan of her older brother. She can sit and watch Isaac for hours, smiling the entire time. Ainsley is not a child who is content lying on her back, while the rest of us go about our day, but loves to be sitting up, seeing the world as the rest of us see it. When lying on her back she strains and tries so hard to sit up on her own.
We recently bought Ainsley a bumbo. The look on her face was one I will never forget. At two and a half months old I have never seen a baby so proud of herself. She was able to sit up on her own, and she loved it. I didn't have the camera with me the first time she sat in the chair, but here's a picture of my big girl!
These first few months have flown by and I can't believe how quickly she has grown. When Isaac was a baby I couldn't wait for each new milestone to be reached, and sadly wished away his baby days. Now I realize that time goes by way too quickly, and I know she too will soon be an independent toddler wanting to do everything "by myself" as Isaac so frequently requests. So for right now, my goal is to make every minute count that I have with this little baby girl. I love you, Ainsley Rose.
