Who gets to hold Ainsley?

All the kids get excited when they hear Ainsley wake up. This is how most mornings are with Ainsley... a race to see who can get her first.

More pics of Ainsley

Here are a few more pictures of Ainsley and family when she was 2 weeks old. My friend Randi came to our house to take them. Ainsley was not cooperative so we're really happy we got some good pictures out of it. She looks happy, but she cried most of the time.

Ainsley Joy

We were determined to have this baby 2 weeks early, which happened to fall on 9/9/09. My plan was to take castor oil in the morning after sending the kids off to school. (This worked for both Addie and Chase). However, this time around, it didn't work. Don't worry... I had a back up plan. I had scheduled a Dr's appt. that afternoon to have my membranes stripped just in case the castor oil didn't work. After seeing my disappointment, my doctor stripped my membranes and called in a favor to the hospital. He sent me on over to be induced.
Ainsley Joy arrived at 7:22 pm on 9/9/09
7 lbs 8 oz - 18 inches long

Addie and Chase missed school the next day and spent the day at the hospital with us.

I had hoped for and had several dreams about this baby having hair, but never thought it would be possible. All of our other children were bald. This is so exciting for all of us!

Breck and Ashley were so busy with school and after school sports that they didn't get to see Ainsley until we brought her home. (24 hours after birth)

Our first night home with Ainsley was quite tough for me. I tried my hardest to feed her before I went to bed, but she didn't cooperate. So I just went to bed knowing she'd wake me up when she was ready. At about 11 pm she had me up, but she kept me up until 3 am. All she wanted to do was eat. It's now 10 am and she's still sleeping. I'd better change me sleep schedule.

Tonsils and Adnoids removed!

Chase and Addie both had their tonsils and adnoids removed on August 31, just one week before school started. They did so good and we enjoyed one very quiet week at our house.

They enjoyed their ride out to the car in a wheel chair.
