Long Time No Blogging


We've been very busy people. We moved (and now have internet service again)! We now live in our very own townhouse. We'll be unpacking for a little while. It's harder to do with a 1 year old, we have to work it in during her naps mostly.

Ainsley went to the Opthamologist and it turns out she has an astigmatism in her left eye. Since her eye isn't giving her brain good information, her brain has decided to try not to use it. So now, for 4 hours a day she needs to wear a patch over her good eye to force her brain to use the bad one. Once it gets stronger then she is going to be wearing glasses. So far she doesn't mind the patch too much but I can see fun times trying to keep the glasses on her head.

Enjoy the photo montage.

Happy Mother's Day!


Once there were two women who never knew each other.
One you do not remember, the other you call Mother.
Two different lives shaped to make you one.
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.

The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need for love.
The second was there to give it.

One gave you a nationality.
The other gave you a name.
One gave you a talent.
The other gave you aim.

One gave you emotions.
The other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile.
The other dried your tears.

One sought for you a home that she could not provide.
The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.

And now you ask me, through your tears, the age-old question unanswered through the years.
Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?

Neither, my darling. Neither.
Just two different kinds of Love.

Our Little Girl is Growing Up

Yesterday we checked out our first daycare for Ainsley in September. You need a code to get the front door open and there are cameras in every classroom so you can log in and see that your little one is JUST FINE during the day after you leave them in tears. :) Ainsley enjoyed looking at the babies and when we got to the one-year old room she seemed to enjoy the kids so Baba put her on the ground next to them and some very sweet children carried over toys for her to play with. She seemed to enjoy it. The director told wanted to show us the outside play area and said to leave Ainsley where she was since she seemed to be enjoying herself. We must have given her a strange look like - We Couldn't Possibly Leave Our Daughter Around Other People - because she said, "she'll be fine, she is enjoying herself." So reluctantly, we both left the room to look at the little outside area and the area for the bigger 2 and littler 3's. We went back in and she was JUST FINE. Surprise! Who would have thought it? The building is a bit older but has some cool stuff and comes highly recommended so it is definitely high on our consideration list.
