Ashlyn Helping Daddy Drive

This was her Christmas Dress. This was the best picture I had of it.

She loves the Bath, but she hates the lotion and dressing after, I guess we got her at a good moment.

Her first time eating solids! What a mess!!!

Mommy feeding her solids. Yum Yum!

Lots has happened since I posted last so I'm just going to write a few of the high point. Ashlyn started eating solid foods in the middle of January. It took her a while to figure out how to eat from a spoon, but she sure had fun trying. She actually really enjoyed the rice cereal but when I started feeding her applesauce she hated it. She would make the funniest sour face and not want to swallow. It was hilarious!!!!! She really loves pears, sweet potatoes, peas, and green beans. She has really got the hang of it by now and I can't seem to feed her fast enough; although she has learned how to spit it out and make a mess which I'm not to fond of. (But of course it's still cute)
Ashlyn has been scooting and army crawling around about the same time she started eating solids. Now she army crawls really really fast. She is now getting good at getting up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth, but she isn't quite crawling for real yet. But it will be soon enough. I can't believe how fast they grow up! She is also really good with her hands, she can pick up things off the floor and put them in her mouth. So I have to really keep an eye on her and make sure she doesn't choke on anything. :( She loves her daddy so much when he gets home and picks her up she grabbs his hair and gives him a big slobbery kiss on the forhead. It is way funny!! Also her favorite toy is hour DVD holder its a stand up one, and it spins, and holds DVDs on three sides. So she crawls over to it and spins it around and pulls all of the DVDs off, at least as far as she can reach. I was picking them up at least 6 times a day. I finally got to where I just leave them until she goes down for a nap then put them away. That way I only have to pick them up 3 times. She is such a good baby and very observant she doesn't miss a thing. Although She does give me attitude when I take something away she is playing with, she squeals at me then starts to cry. Oh boy here we go!!! lol We took Ashlyn on her first bike ride. We borrowed my sisters baby seat and hooked it on to our tandem bike and went for a little stroll she seemed to enjoy it. I'm sure we looked real cute too. We had a good time

Matt is starting softball tournaments and leagues, he loves it so much. Whenever it is good enough weather to go outside we have to go throw the softball, which is fine with me. He is staying busy with work and he is also helping with the little league now. He is the type that doesn't like to sit around he has to be involved with something. I'm glad he has things he loves to do. At least he's not lazy right!
As far as I go I am having a great time being a stay at home mom. I love spending the day playing and taking care of Ashlyn and my home. The days get a little long but now that it is starting to warm up I am looking forward to getting outside and doing more.
Well that is what has been going on in a nut shell I hope you enjoy the picks.
