First time at the Lake.

Ashlyn just loved the water! She splashed and squealed and tried to eat anything that floated near enough for her to grasp...even the sand. I think I have a waterbaby on my hands.

I went out today and bought a little baby pool and let her splash around in it on the backporch. Even though the water cold, she still had fun....Thank you Lord, for such a sweet baby!


So much fun!

Daddy's boat!

Ashlyn and her daddy.

Jade's sargeant had a Memorial Day cookout at his house on Saturday before all the rangers in his region went out on the water to work.

Little miss curiosity

What a toothie smile.

She's such a cutie. Look at all those big teeth. Ha!

It's a Girl! My ultrasound at 20 weeks pregnant

Flashback: Everyone looking at Ashlyn from the nursery window.

Flashback: Our brand new family just seconds old!

Flashback: Ashyln 2 days old.

She's come such a long way and yet somehow it only seems like yesterday...sigh. I love how she can interact with me now and laugh and sway side to side with music but I truly miss those days where all she did was eat, sleep, and poop--I was always able to keep the house clean and the laundry kept up. NOT NOW! It's really hard when you're chasing her all around the house. She may only be able to do the army crawl but she sure is FAST!!!

Behold! The Cutest Baby in the World!!!

This was the first time Ashlyn wore pigtails. Making them was a two-man job; Jade held her down while I tried to fix her hair. Well worth it though...she's so cute!

I really like this pic. It makes me think of the real joy of parenthood.

Ashlyn's almost 10 months old!!!!

Where does the time go, really???? My little baby's going to be a toddler in a couple of months! She even pulled up in her crib by herself, for the first time on April 22nd. Now she's learning to cruise the furniture. Scary yet I'm so proud. Ha!

I took these pics inside the house around 9 o'clock at night using some cheap flood lights from Lowe's. I'm too cheap to actually buy some good studio lighting right now. Maybe one day. This pic didn't come out too bad though--to be my first time experimenting with indoor lighting and shadows.

Sitting Pretty

No More Pictures!!!!
