I decided to straighten Aislin's hair one day while Oliver was napping. She was really excited to do it.
I set my flat iron on one of the lowest settings and Aislin sat still the whole time. It didn't take long before she was done. I think she looks so different and grown up. She thought it was so fun and kept looking in the mirror.

Since Jordan was off the day after Aislin's birthday, that is when we celebrated. We had promised Aislin for a while that we would take her to Farm Country to ride a pony for her birthday. She was so excited. When we got there, the line was super long, so we had to wait for a long time. Aislin was getting impatient.
Oliver slept almost the whole time we were in line for the ponies.
Finally, it was Aislin's turn. I think she smiled the whole time.
Oliver doesn't like being in his car seat when he is awake, so I brought the Bjorn for him. He loves to look around and smile at everyone.
Later that day we had presents and cake for Aislin. Our friends Jann and Mark came over with their little girl Addy.
Aislin loves her new bike. It took some practice and encouragement, but she figured out how to pedal and keep going. We are hoping it will help build strength and flexibility in her hips.
This is the only picture I got of Aislin and her cake. I was too busy taking video I guess. I'm just glad I got one.
Aislin requested a pink cake months before her birthday. She would talk about it all the time. She couldn't wait for her pink birthday cake. You can't get more pink than this.
My sweet girl is 3! How can that be?
I am so grateful to have this ray of sun in my life. Aislin is too funny. She loves to "read" books and play with her buddies. She is so smart. She memorizes the books we read to her and will recite them almost word for word when she is reading them alone. She loves to learn and is enjoying our preschool. We are working on reinforcing letters and the sounds they make. We are working on counting and reading. Aislin loves watching Strawberry Shortcake movies. Her favorite dinner I make is Chicken and Dumplings. She requests it at least 3 times a week.
She loves her brother dearly and takes her big sister role seriously. She helps me out all the time and has shown no jealousy towards Oliver. She loves to read books to Oliver and to share her buddies with him. She loves to make him laugh and is good at it.
Aislin loves going to the play ground. She can now climb the ladder all by herself to go down the slide.
Aislin loves singing hymns. She sings "I Am A Child Of God" and " I Love To See The Temple" all the time.
I love this girl with all my heart and love to watch her learn and grow. She is an example of strength and endurance. I learn from her every day.
