With mobility comes mischief. Here is a collection of recent Ashley photos documenting her exploits. I keep telling Ashley to be careful. Diane says she is always underfoot, just like having a dog again. As you may recall, we no longer have a dog.
We have arrived at that point where she will no longer hold still for a diaper change. Every time the diaper comes off she bolts and has to be wrestled into a new diaper and clothes.
For Christmas, my mother gave Ashley a sock monkey because I had one when I was a baby. We put it in the crib for Ashley to sleep with. One night I we went in to check on her and this is what we saw.

Interesting factoids for the day. Did you know that Sir Isaac Newton was the Master of the Mint and established the gold standard in England from where is spread through the rest of the world? The United States was the last country to abandon the gold standard in 1971.
I shot a shorter video of Ashley to see if that would work and it looks like it did. As you can see she is getting much more proficient with the locomotion--which is not without its down side.
We celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day exactly the way my father taught us to celebrate all holidays--we worked around the house. I promised the kids that if they helped us clean really well that I would take them out to dinner at their favorite restaurant. They did a great job, so we went out to eat. After we got home I put Ashley on the floor while Jonathan and Aubrey were getting ready for bed. She proceeded to open the coffee table drawer and scatter the coasters on the newly cleaned floor. I should have known it wouldn't last, but I didn't expect the first mess to be made by one so young.

I had a video to post, but it won't upload. I will have to try again later.
