Pics of Heidi and big girl room

On Saturday, my mom and sister took me to have the 4D ultrasound of Heidi done and Ansley spent the day with her Grandpa. I was excited to see whether or not she would look like Ansley and Jeff or resemble me just a little. Everything looked great with her and she's just precious, but I can definitely tell a difference in her photos and Ansley's. Still not sure if she resembles me at all, though. She wiggled and jumped throughout the ultrasound and kept her hands and the cord in front of her face most of the time. She moves so much! And constantly has hiccups like Ansley did.

In other news, Ansley has been moved to her "big girl room" and has slept in her toddler bed three times now. I cannot believe how well she's done. I just knew that I would have problems with her getting out of bed in the middle of the night. Well, she is getting out of bed, but only to sleep on the floor. I'm not sure if she's falling out or just prefers the floor. But, I get up a million times at night to check on her and then just put her back in bed. She loves her new room and has finally started playing in there. Lately she wants everyone in the house to play on the floor with her. She says, "Mommy, play, floor, yeah." Sometimes she calls me Mallory and her daddy Jeff because she's heard others calling us that.

Ansley's photo for comparison. See the difference in the nose?

Overdue updates

Here's what has been happening with us:
-Had a great Christmas with our families. Ansley racked up tons of toys and they're keeping her very busy these days. Her favorites for the time being are her baby dolls, kitchen, tea set, and tents.
-We're trying to get Ansley's big girl room finished so she can move over and get used to the toddler bed before her little sister comes. I KNOW I'm going to have trouble keeping her in that bed. I'm sure I'm going to get up in the morning and find all of her toys everywhere. Who knows what else I'll find...
-Heidi is growing a lot. Sometimes I feel like she's going to stick her feet through my throat. I can tell she's getting big already and I have about 3 months to go. I'm a lot more uncomfortable with this pregnancy than I was with Ansley.
-Ansley is talking so much. But, my favorite words from her are thank you, please, you're welcome, excuse me, and bless you.

Ansley's been having so much fun running around the house with a blanket on her head and pretending that it's her hair. How sad is that? It's going to be many, many years before she has long hair.

She's also having fun destroying the house. I can't count how many times a day I put all of her diapers back in the basket after she's "changed" her baby's diaper. It's such a joy watching her pretend and mother her babies.

This is a video of her dancing to her teapot's music. Sorry it's not rotated...I can't do that with my version of Quicktime.
