Hailey Lynn, age 2 & 3/4...
*She's become totally day potty trained! She loves wearing Dora, Tinkerbell, and "days of the week" undies.
*She learned to count to 10 in Spanish...although every once in a while I hear, "uno, dos, tres, nacho, cinco..." ;) This girl is ALWAYS good for a laugh...
*She's becoming "Miss Independent"! She has a big opinion on what she wears (my disclaimer if you see us out and about and she looks like a ragamuffin :), likes to dress herself, and often times can be heard saying, "Mom, I'll do it ALL BY MYSELF!" (Did you catch that? She calls me "Mom" now...not "Mommy" or "Mama"...just "Mom"...like she's a teenager or something!)
*Thanks to one of the best gifts ever (a Zoo Membership), Hailey has fallen in love with the Carousel. I swear, she asks to ride it at least once a week.
*This year, Hailey and I started going to BSF together and Hailey just loves it! She's learned several new verses this year, lots of good classic hymns, and some great truths about Jesus. I love that she's hiding God's Word in her heart...it'll be in there forever!! :)
*He was born! He came to us sweet and helpless and is becoming a little man faster than I'd like! :/
*He's almost crawling, getting better at sitting up, eats like a champ, sleeps 12 hours a night, and has the best smiles around. When he smiles, his whole face lights up and I swear you can see a twinkle in his eye. Sweet boy...
*Had his first Christmas and did awesome! He didn't flinch when he sat on Santa's lap (in fact, he was fascinated with the man's beard), helped tear into the wrapping paper on his gifts, and just loved all of his new toys. Not a single complaint from him!! ;)
*Has fallen in love with his big sister. I've said this before, but I'll say it again...no one makes him smile like Hailey does! As a mom, this is a gift.
