Aimsley's 1st Birthday

Happy Birthday Bunny! I cannot believe that she is 1 year old! We are so blessed to have such a sweet little girl. Aimsley was born at around 2 in the morning on the 31 of March last year and man what a wonderful year it has been. Not only has it been so much fun to be a part of Aimsley's life and watch her grow, she has also brought our family closer! Any time we can all be together to spend time with the bunny we do it! Aimsley, Aunt Kei Kei loves you so much and always you. You are her very special little girl! I cannot wait to spend many more years to come with you. Although the thought of you growing up makes me a little sad, I am also very excited for our relationship to grow!

 I gave Aimsley her first pedicure last night to get her ready for her big day! It looks so precious. Today she wore a onesie that her great Aunt Tina made her with a rainbow tutu that Grammy made her! She looks so precious and her pink little toes were the perfect touch! Aimsley had a wonderful birthday and is definitely very loved. We had a big turnout for the party. Although Aimsley was a little overwhelmed she did great with all the people there. She didn't exactly rip into her cake but she did eat it for a little bit and I believe we got some great pictures! Then bunny opened her presents and she got so many new toys and a lot of cute outfits. Not sure where in her closet we are going to put all of these clothes! She is well stocked for the summer! What a great 1st birthday she had! She is a very blessed little girl and we are lucky to have so many people that love her! I can't wait to see what this year is going to hold for her! Hopefully I can get her to say Aunt Kei Kei soon!! Happy Easter everyone and Happy Birthday Aimsley. We all love you very much!

Aimsley and Mommy Tuesday

I am dedicating this post to Aimsley and Mommy Tuesday! Keishia is very fortunate to be able to take off work on Tuesdays and spend the day with Aimsley. Most of her doctors appointments and errands are ran on this day! Aimsley only has to go to daycare only 3 times a week which is wonderful! She gets to spend time with Grammy on Wednesdays as well. Something cool Keishia started doing was taking a picture of her and Aimsley every Tuesday! I know me and many other people look forward to seeing the Aimsley and Mommy Tuesday pictures. Not only do they show Aimsley changing but they show her personality as well! I have put together a collage of all of the Aimsley and Mommy Tuesday pictures for the first year of her life!!! I know we will always enjoy looking back at these through the years!

Easter Bunny

Aimsley got to meet the Easter Bunny this weekend!!! I missed it because I was out of town but I got to hear all about it! Apparently Aimsley was pointing at him like she wanted him. Well once they put her in his lap, she didn't cry at first and was fine, but you could tell she was freaked out. I mean I would be too. The Easter Bunny is very creepy! WAY more than Santa. But she was a trooper and they were able to get some cute pictures. I cannot wait to see Aimsley hunt Easter Eggs at Granny's and most importantly I can't wait to teach her the TRUE meaning of Easter when she gets older. Let's not forget that God sent his ONLY son to die for us and he defeated death and he is RISEN! Praise him! Happy Easter everyone!

Big Girl Walking!

So Aimsley is officially a cruiser! The other night during the UK game Keishia and Chase watched it at Jamie and Eric's and Aimsley just decided to let go and walk! She has been consistently letting go and taking a few steps here and there from toy to toy but she just decided to take off! Keishia texted me the video and I screamed! It was so exciting.

Bad news is that Keishia got sick again on Saturday night and all day Sunday and I myself was out of work two days this past week with it again. Miserable. We are both feeling much better and hopefully that is the last we see of that stupid stomach bug! Aimsley also go to meet the Hatcher's today! None of Dad's family had ever met her and we went to one of my cousin's baby shower! Everyone thought she was precious but of course we already knew this. She got to meet two of her cousin's Piper and Shayla as well!

Alvaton Fun!

We had a pretty good Saturday! I ran a 5k in the morning then headed out to spend time with my Aimsley! It was a nice day out so we decided to take a stroll down to Trammel Creek that runs along the front of Keishia and Chase's house. Me and Keishia grew up playing in a creek by our house so we were excited to see there was one that Aimsley was going to be able to play in! Oma and Opa got Aimsley a radio flyer wagon for Christmas so this was the perfect opportunity to test it out! She had a blast. She sit in it like such a big girl and even let Bailey ride along with her! How cute is she???? I even tied her jacket around her waste! She was a big girl this day!

Sick sick sick

I have had the stomach virus all weekend. I went to Keishia's on Thursday where everyone was suppose to be feeling better and I get a text from Keishia once I went home that said WARNING, AIMSLEY IS THROWING UP EVERYWHERE! So I prepared myself and slept with phenergan, a glass of water, a wet rag, and a trash can all beside the bed because I just knew I would wake up with it. I felt fine all day Friday until Saturday morning I was doing Insanity and literally passed out. The rest of the day my stomach just felt awful. It finally got me at about 8 o'clock. Thank goodness Matthew's mother was in town who is a nurse and took care of me! I feel like I am on the mend!!! Meanwhile Keishia still isn't feeling great but Aimsley is feeling better. Hopefully I'll start feeling better soon!

The picture below cracks me up. Aimsley thinks its funny to throw her food in the floor and this time it got stuck to her forehead. So funny! The other picture is of me and Aimsley on Thursday. I love when Keishia captures these moments! I love her more than this world! And look at those chubby cheeks!

Aimsley had to get tubes in her ears yesterday. She has had multiple ear infections and always seems sick and to have a runny nose. Keishia was told to take her to an ear, nose, and throat specialist and they did some hearing tests and Aimsley failed 10 of 11 hearing test! She was completely clogged up. They scheduled her surgery very fast! Bad news is Keishia had the stomach virus yesterday so she was miserable at Aimsley's surgery! Aimsley passed with flying colors. Didn't cry after she woke up from anesthesia and waved at Keishia and Chase when they walked in after her surgery. She is a trooper! They said that one of her ears were completely full and was the consistency of taffy. The poor girl hasn't been able to hear this whole time! We are hoping this improves her balance so she will be able to take off and walk by herself. She hasn't walked any since her first steps. We must have scared her to death!

Drinking out of Cups!

Aimsley is now drinking out of a straw. We have been working with her and at first she would just put the straw in her mouth, bite down, then look up at us and smile! She thought she was such a big girl!! But now she can drink out of her own cup with a straw!!

 Aimsley also for the first time just randomly fell asleep in the floor. The saw some pillows and thought that they looked quite comfy and decided to take a little snooze. She has been spoiled and has always had to be rocked to sleep but not this particular night. So funny!

Happy Valentine's Day

Yesterday was Aimsley 1st Valentine's Day and her daddy spoiled her rotten! She got a pair of pearl earrings for when they decide to get her ears pierced! I am a HUGE fan of pearls and only the classiest of ladies wear them! So glad Aimsley is getting started early!!! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

First Steps!!!

Aimsley had her first steps last night! We got it on video too and you would have thought that UK won the National Championship by a last second shot. We all screamed and scared her half to death. Poor thing...she will never walk again! She took about 4 steps and I am so glad that I was there to be a part of it!

I also want to wish a Happy Anniversary to my wonderful parents! Without them I wouldn't be here and neither would Aimsley! I am so blessed to have parents like them! Check out the two little teeth below!!!

First Snow Day

Aimsley had her first snow day!!! The pictures are hilarious. Mom bought her this snow suit and said that we had one when we were little. She literally looks like a marshmallow.  So funny! But she seemed to like the snow!!!

Big Girl Car Seat

Aimsley has outgrown her car seat! Her other only let her lay down and she likes to sit up and watch the Ipad when she is in the car. Her legs are also long enough to where they were touching seat so we needed something a little bigger. This seat will grow with her until she doesn't need one anymore! So far she loves it! She also loves bath time! And Aimsley officially has 2 teeth!!! You can kind of see them in the bottom picture! I love how when she smiles she smiles with all she has!

These are a few of my favorite things!!

Aimsley is 10 months old today! Her stats checked in at 15 pounds and 10 ounces!!! She is still gradually gaining weight but will possibly be the littliest 1 year old ever! I don't know where she gets it from because me and Keishia were pretty chubby babies! I am going to dedicate this post to some of Aimsley's favorite things!!! She loves any toy that she can stand up with and play with! These are her most favorite! Also she loves to stack her blocks and read books! She is now starting to become attached to things like a blanket or a doll. She almost always has to have something in her hands! She also LOVES the Ipad. Grammy shows her lots of nursery rhymes on it and she just smiles and smiles!! We have a very happy little girl on our hands! If only our own lives were that simple!

Keishia and Chase spent this past weekend in Nashville visiting friends from college! Lynn and Tex and Joe and Jessica were friends they had through the years and now they all have children! They had a day of shopping at Oprymills and let the kids hang out and play!!! Although we missed Aimsley this weekend we are glad they all had fun!!!

Food, Food, and more Food

Aimsley is loving eating!! She eats 3 meals a day just like a normal baby! Finally something normal about the child! Lol! Her typical meals daily include pancakes made from Quinoa and blueberries and breast milk! Then she is always snacking on Chee Cha Puffs! They are just pure potatoes and they melt in her mouth! For lunch she usually has cooked ground beef with some noodles and carrots!! And for dinner she usually has a little bit of what we are eating! Like potatoes or carrots or something like that! She likes pears too! She also loves sweet potatoes, apple sauce, and drinking water from her sippy!! She is turning into such a big girl!!!
