Ashlyn's Garden

Last week, Ashlyn planted a garden in the backyard with some help from Grandma and Grandpa.  She planted Lettuce, Marigolds, Carrots, Asparagus Beans, White Beans, and Coleus.  Everyday she goes out and checks her garden to see what's growing.  Yesterday she was very excited that lots of little lettuce was starting to come up and one of her marigolds had come up.

New Experiences for Aiyana

Aiyana has been a busy girl the past couple of weeks.  She has tried a few exciting new things.  She is now old enough for solid foods, so we started feeding her baby food.  Rice cereal wasn't great the first time, but she has decided that it is OK.  She also enjoys pears and carrots.  Next we'll try peas.

One of the nice days that we had recently she went outside to play with Ashlyn.  Aiyana enjoyed swinging in the baby swing.

She also rolls over all the time now.  Of course, she's only mastered going from her back to her tummy, so once she's on her tummy she's stuck.  Hopefully she'll learn how to roll back sometime soon.

Ashlyn's Belated Birthday Party

Yesterday Ashlyn finally had her birthday party (we had originally planned on having it the weekend after her birthday but had to cancel so that we could go to Benjamin's funeral).  She enjoyed helping make the butterfly snacks and had fun playing with her friends and family at the party.  Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate her birthday!
