After writing a whole blog post about my sweet Hadley Shay, I deleted it! :(
So....Here we go again!
It felt so weird writing a two digit number this month!
Every single day I look at my little babe and can't believe how big she is.
-Climbs stairs. We don't have stairs at our apartment, but the first time Hadley discovered them, she climbed all the way to the top. She hasn't quite figured how to go back down yet.
-She took her first steps (6 in a row) on June 30, 2013 but really started walking the week of July 14-21, 2013 and hasn't stopped since.
-Says 'Mama', 'Dada', 'Dad', 'Baba', 'Lo' (hello), 'up', 'wow', 'woah', 'yuck', 'no'..she doesn't say them all the time, but it's amazing to see her comprehend and start to really understand what's going on.
-She has been R E A L L Y attached to mom. I can't even put her down for 5 seconds without her screaming or crying.
-Had her first 4th Of July and slept through the firework show, but when Kyle lit our fireworks she cried and would say "dada, dada, dada"
-Pulls everything out of drawers, diaper bag, laundry, etc.
-Went on her very first camping trip and surprisingly, did great! The first night, Hadley and I slept in my parents trailer. She woke up in the middle of the night and freaked out! The next two nights, we slept in the tent with Kyle and she didn't even wake up.
-Top right tooth broke through the gums on 7-16-13
-Love, LoVe, LOVES both of her grandpas!
-Cannot hold still if her life depended on it. She is one BUSY baby
-Loves to be tossed in the air and twirled around
-Jumps all the time
-Dances every time she hears any music
-Loves her daddy even though he scares her all the time. She has just started to laugh when he scares her now.
-Hates her diaper changed. If she could roam naked she would.
-Slaps/smacks everything. (skin, washer/dryer, oven, floor, tray on highchair, etc)
-Still hates her car seat. I can't wait until we can face her forward
-Sleeps on her tummy
-Likes to drink out of mommy and daddy's cups
-Without fail, everywhere we go, someone is talking to Hadley. She is so friendly. People seem to love the fact that she waves and smiles at them. And she definitely love the attention they give her.
-Has been mistaken for a boy more times than ever before?! weird?
-LOVES the water and swimming. She even cries when we take her out of the bath tub.
-When sad or mad, she jibbers so much, I can only imagine what she is trying to say.
-Holds phone (or other objects) up to her ear and says "Lo" (hello) or
when we say hello, she holds her hand, toys, etc up to her ear. I have
no idea where she learned this because I really don't talk on my phone
-When asked for kisses she gives them
-When asked to hand mommy something or 'let me see', she hands things to me.
-When I say no she shakes her head.
-Opens the cupboards
-Takes 2 naps a day that range from 1-3 hours
-Smiles every single time she seems a camera flash
-Still doesn't really sleep through the night, but that is probably my fault because I just couldn't handle the self soothing.
