Orlando Christmas

The day after Christmas we drove to Orlando and spent a few days with the Allen side of the family. Ansley is going to be set for a long time once this holiday season is over :o)

The weather turned a little cooler and boy am I glad (even though I don't like to be cold) because we got to get a picture of this cute little thing...

We had fun visiting family in West Palm. Noah decided he liked Ansley as long as he was "helping" her...

...Otherwise he wasn't interested :o)

He did enjoy my sunglasses and looked very cute in them too!

Christmas Eve

Some pics from Christmas Eve...

PS: Yesterday Ansley started scooting. She lies tummy down and scrunches her knees in while shoving her little bottom in the air. So far she either goes nowhere or a little backwards. It's very silly :o)

22 Weeks Old & Rolling Over

Well, tonight Ansley finally rolled from tummy to back. It must have startled her because she cried a little. But, once Jon and I clapped and said "YEAAAAAAY!" she was back to being happy. She seemed more content with tummy time after figuring out it could be done.

She'd just roll herself back after a few minutes of holding up her head. (In the pictures she is mesmerized by the Gator Basketball game daddy is watching). I tried to catch it on camera but could only manage once she was mid roll.

Also, she has woken up for the last three nights now at a random hour of the morning, talked to herself for 30min and then gone back to sleep. Not quite sure what that is all about, but the books suggest two reasons: 1. Time to drop her late evening nap or 2. Time to start cereal. We tried keeping her awake through the late nap tonight so if she wakes up again it may be time for #2.

5 Months Old

This month Ansley has found she can shriek, suck on just her thumb, laugh A LOT and sit up in a seat all on her own. She's still a good night time sleeper (although, she woke up at around midnight last night and talked to herself for 30 minutes before falling asleep again). Hopefully that will continue as she gets older. I just bought Baby Wise 2 for 5-12 month olds and am excited to flip through it.

Oh, and here's a silly picture from Thanksgiving that I forgot to post a few weeks ago :o)

Are you going to take my picture mummy?

I tried to take some print worthy pictures of Ansley today. It was the first clear afternoon in a while. I'm not sure any of them are what I was going for, but they are good pics nonetheless. I had to use a lot of restraint not to post every single one on here :o)

21 Weeks Old

How big is Ansley?

This big!

I feel like she's going to stand before she ever tries to crawl! She loves to stand :o)

She also now knows her bottle. She'll stare at it after eating and opens her mouth when you bring it near. It's still to heavy for her little hands though.

As cute as this little girls is, she has been making a high pitched squeally/whiney noise...A LOT. It sounds like she's frustrated, but it's just her new thing. This, along with putting her thumb (not her whole hand anymore) into her mouth. The first day she started, it seemed like she was trying to do a "B" or "M" sound at the end. Now it's just this...

I hate to say this, but I'm looking forward to a new noise. This one just makes me think she's irritated :o)

Snuggly Stripes

Ansley looked soo cute in her snuggly pink stripes.

Then she did some tummy time (while trying to watch TV).
