Makenna Rayne Guillot

Introducing the newest addition to the family:
Natalie's new cousin. Cameron and I are officially aunt and uncle now. I guess it was our time since we made Eric (my brother) an uncle first! But isn't she just beautiful. I will elaborate more when we get back home to Baton Rouge and I have time.

Christmas Time

This weekend Mimi and Poppa came to Baton Rouge to shop and see Natalie. Friday we went to the Santastic at the Mall of Louisiana. Natalie was very excited...until we got in line and she claimed that she was "just a little scared", but she did fine when she got in Santa's lap and told him everything she wants for Christmas.
She looked adorable in her Christmas tutu! Between Jami and I, someone should have pictures up soon.

Natalie's Christmas List:

  • Dora Bike
  • Little Einstein Ballerina (June)
  • A Baby that does not cry

I found it hilarious that she wanted a baby doll that DOES NOT CRY! When Cari had her baby for school Natalie would say that she did not want to hear it cry so I guess she wanted to make sure she did not receive a baby like that! Cute huh!

We also went to Build-A-Bear and Natalie created a Panda Bear. She fell in love with her bear before it even 'came to life' or 'got stuffed'. She is so loving and nurturing to her baby dolls/stuffed animals. And it is the cutest thing ever.

Overall we had a great weekend and we are looking forward to our "First Christmas as a Family" know what we mean! We will have our Christmas very early, on Monday--the 22nd. Since Natalie came along, we have always had Christmas with Cameron's family the 23rd, his extended family the 24th, and Christmas with my family the 25th, then to my extended family sometime after.

I promise to post pictures of our little bitty Christmas tree :]

Merry Christmas!

*New Look*

It is time for a an update and I wish I had pictures to post but I don't at the time.
I am working on converting this site of "Natalie's Tigerland" into a "Ainsworth Family" blog. I just don't know how I want to do it. I got this layout from a free site just because it matched a collage I made of the 3 of us. I like it but I don't know if I am completely happy with it.
I wish there was a cute, catchy name I could come up with for our blog like "The Glenn Gang" ...but nothing really goes with Ainsworth :[
Anywho...Cameron's input was this: "Once Upon A Family.....An Ainsworth Tale", I think that is really cute but I just haven't decided...any opinions, thoughts, & so on would be appreciated!
Last night we switched Natalie's room and the office so she can have a bigger room. She loves it! When I told her she was getting a new room her first response was: "Is it going to be Diego??" Sadly, I said no it will still be Dora, and that she would just have a bigger room. And she replied, "But..I don't want it to be Dora.." She's a character! But she will have to stick with the Dora theme for now and I know she will be happy with leaving it that way. I will post pictures when we get everything in place!
That's all for now!

Daddy's Girl-

It is snowing today down here in Baton Rouge. It does make me sad that Natalie is not here for us to make a wee little snowman, or atleast attempt to make something. I do miss her very much. If you are wondering why...Natalie went to stay with Nana & Mimi this week so Cameron and I could focus on finals. It has been hard being without her but I know that we would not have been able to study with her here.
Every other school is closed today with the exception of LSU, go figure. But the good thing is that today is mine and Cameron's last final and then we are done with the fall semester. I can't believe that I am a semester into college and before I know it I will be done with my first year. Am I making anyone feel old yet??
Anywho, I am just rambling and now here is the real reason for this post:
[Isn't this quote perfect!]
I just love this image of these two. This was right after Natalie got her ears pierced. You can tell that Cameron is a proud daddy and Natalie is proud of her new earrings. I don't know what I would do without these two...they truly keep me going. :]

I have been thinking about either converting this site into a family blog or creating a new one for the family and then keeping this for Natalie stuff. I just don't know if I could keep up with two blogs since I can barely keep up with this one. Any suggestions?
