Ayla today! What she has learned and done the past 5 months!

I have been wanting to do a post on Ayla, for quite some time now! She has really learned a lot these past 5 months!

She learned how to swing on her swing-set all on her own!

She loves it!
We love that we don't have to push her now! It wears you out!

She went to the dentist for her first time in June!

Here she is waiting in the child's waiting room!

She was not too fond of getting the x-rays done.

She was pretty nerves.

We had to do it a couple of times but at the end she was smiling!

She was so nerves in the chair. When the dentist looked at her teeth, she grabbed onto the chair so hard with her hands that her fingers were white. I felt so bad. I tried to comfort her. All and all she did really well for her first time and was excited that she got a stuffed animal from them for being so good!

We took her camping for her first time!

She swam for her first time without holding onto an adult because she had her life vest!

She also learned to wash her hair and her body during her baths, so she can give herself baths now! We still watch her of course and sometimes I just need to bathe her.

She still loves to draw!
She said she drew a picture of a man saying, "What the?!" LOL!! She cracks me up!

Here is a picture of our family! I love how I am holding Ashlyn!

This is a cat she drew!

She gave her fist talk in primary! I think she really enjoyed it! She now likes to pretend she is giving talks all the time! It is so cute! I am a proud Mom!

She is really good at making friends!

She loves to entertain Ashlyn and is great at being a big sister!

We didn't put her in preschool but we have been working with her at home.
My Mother-in-law has been so helpful with this, with getting us materials we need to teach her! Thanks Carol Anne!

She is learning the alphabet, numbers, coloring skills and lots of other things!

I am impressed at the things Ayla is capable of!

She colored this in by herself! You needed to color all the capital H's red and all the lower case h's purple!

Here you color all the capital C's red and all the lower case c's yellow!

Good job Ayla!

She has learned to write her name and I always make her put her name at the top of the paper she is working on. She is really getting good at it! She even insists on writing her middle name on her papers! :)

We have even been working on her motor skills as well! She cuts the paper!

Puts glue on the back!

And pastes it on a paper!

Great job sweetheart!
I even had her make a paper chain once!

Grandma Perry, even bought her things to paint with!

Ayla is quite the artist! I love her paintings!

Ayla has grown so much these past 5 months!
Ayla, Mommy is so proud of you! And Mommy, loves you!
