Ainsley is 5!!

Ainsley you are 5 years old today!! You have been waiting for this day for a long time. I remember many conversations with you talking about how you will be able to do this or that when you are five. And now you are!!
Ainsley you came into this world as a very sick little baby. And you often ask mommy and daddy to tell you about when you were sick and you like to look at pictures of yourself when you were in the hospital. You feel very special that so many people helped to take care of you. And you were special indeed. Mommy and Daddy are so thankful that God was watching over you and we were able to bring you home!

This was the first time I saw you.
Getting your footprints!

Mommy holding you for the first time-I had to wait 11 days before I could hold you!

Daddy holding you for the first time.

This was the day you finally came home from the hospital after 5 long weeks. I'll never forget that day Ainsley.

Your first birthday party-1 year old!

2 years old!

3 years old!

4 years old!

5 years old!!

At 5 years old:

  • You love to color and you are so good at staying in the lines
  • You love to paint
  • You love kicking the soccer ball outside and I think you are going to be a good little soccer player some day.
  • You love to do your "homework" as soon as you get home from school and you're very good at it!
  • You love to pick out your outfit and everything has to match just perfectly (wonder where you got that from;))
  • You love to help mommy and daddy around the house and you are a great cleaner
  • You love playing with your sister Harper (barbies, dress up, store, doll house)
  • You love helping mommy take care of your brother Bennett and you love singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to him when he's upset
  • You are the captain of the "bad word" police

You make mommy smile just by being you, Ainsley, you are truly just a wonderful daughter and mommy thanks God for you every single night!

Mommy and Daddy love you so very much Ainsley and we are so proud of you!

Happy Birthday sweet girl!
