Fashion Show

Today Ainsley went to a birthday party and it was a "princess fashion show" party. The girls got their hair done, a little make-up and got their nails painted! Then they got to choose one of the stores' pretty dresses (they all brought their "fancy" shoes) and they walked down the run way for the moms to watch. It was very cute but long- from 1 until almost 5 these little 3 and 4 year olds were pampered and had to wait patiently for the others but they did do a cute craft and got snacks through out. To my surprise, the moms were allowed to walk the mall for almost 2 hours while the girls got ready! I never get to shop by myself so my mom and I walked around and enjoyed the afternoon-what a treat! Harper was with daddy and granddaddy at the house. Here's Ainsley with her "up-do" and make-up above. She's looking a bit too grown up!
Here she is attempting to strike a pose.
She's had enough after 3 hours, make-up is starting to run, hair is coming out, she just wants a piece of cake for goodness sake! She asked me while she was eating her cake if it was dark outside- that's her way of saying we've been here for a long time!:)


  1. Hello Adrienne, a friend pointed me in the direction of your blog and I just wanted to say congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm sure you are still adjusting to the news you got about your baby. I just want to tell you that it's going to be okay, it really is. My son, Finn, was born almost 7 months ago and we found out shortly after he was born that he had Ds. It was hard, coming to terms with that, but I can tell you that he is as much a blessing to our family as our other kids are. Looking back, if there was one thing I wish I had believed when I was going through all the grieving was that it was all going to be okay. And it really will. I very much look forward to following your journey. By the way, in case you don't know yet, the blogging community of parents of children with Ds is amazing! So reach out - there are a lot of people here to support you. Please feel free to stop by my blog :)

  2. Adrienne...I see you went to ECU! I graduated from there in 94. I am a die hard football fan and actually was a marching pirate when I first started there. We love Greenville!
