Hailey at ONE YEAR OLD!!!


She did it!  My baby turned one.  And Hailey’s not the only one having birthdays around here – I turned 30 earlier this month.  Woo hoo!  We’ve had a few celebrations for the both of us over the past two weeks, and there are still a few to come.  But my baby is barely a baby anymore!!

She generally understands that we want her to smile for pictures, so here are some of her attempts at being helpful (and adorable, of course)…

Hailey kept doing this face inbetween smiles…

She is such a good baby!  I can’t say that enough.  Hailey is almost always happy – she has such a pleasant disposition.  She loves to play with Rushton, with toys, with other kids, with ANYONE.  She crawls super fast and the tops of her toes are constantly dirty because of so much crawling (I swear, I clean my floors almost daily!).  Hailey is just starting to walk – she has taken two steps at a time a few times since last week.  And she LOVES to climb – the little dare devil has made it onto the couch (when a toy/pillow is close enough to stand on), onto the ottoman (which has now been moved under the desk in my room), and onto Rushton’s mini rocking chair (which has now been moved into the garage).  Hailey waves most of the time when she hears “bye-bye” and she goes in for kisses.  She has about 5 and a half teeth and she babbles all the time.  She’ll eat almost anything and she LOVES sippy cups.  Seriously, she is so cute!!  Happy birthday, baby!
