18 Months Old!

Life has been pretty crazy around our parts lately, hence the lack of blogging.
The really HUGE lack of blogging.


I know I say it every time, but I just cannot believe how fast the time has gone.
My little baby is now a toddler!!

WHHHAATTT?



Hadley is so smart. She started talking around 10-12months and hasn't stopped!
She can pretty much say anything you ask her to and she pronounces it almost perfectly.
She knows all her aunts, uncles, cousins names and of course her grandma and grandpa.
She amazes me more and more every day.

- Hadley can count to 4 all by herself and to 10 with help.
- Every time the bath water drains she says "bye bye"
- When we say lets go to sleep she runs to the bedroom
- Makes animal noises 
- Tells us when she poops
- Knows where her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth and tongue are.

Hadley loves to be outside. She loves to run, jump, & go on walks.
She has to hold my hand all. the. time. Especially in the car.


In January, Hadley got really sick...after LOTS of visits to the doctor, tests, stool samples, etc. We found out the our poor baby has an infection called "C-diff". Long-story-short, all the good bacteria in her intestines got washed away when she got croup shortly after Christmas which caused another bacteria to overtake her little body..and that caused Hadley to get "c-diff". So my sweet girl has had diarrhea for 3 months. Yes, THREE! I can't tell you how many diapers, diaper cream, wipes, medicine, etc we have gone through. Oh, and we have had to completely cut dairy out of her diet. She can only drink Almond Milk (dairy, soy and gluten free) and Pedilyte. It's been a rough few months. After my employers and co-workers were not willing to help me AT ALL when trying to get people to cover my shifts, so I could take care of my sick daughter, I quit my job and have been able to stay home with Hadley for two months and just started my new job yesterday.

Hadley is getting better (SLOWLY) and has gained most of her weight back..that's one reason why I felt like I could go back to work, but I am not convinced that the bad bacteria is completely out of her system so keep your fingers crossed that when we go in for her appointment today that we will get good news.

This little lady is my whole world and she amazes me every day. I love to watch her learn new things every day. She is so smart and such an independent little girl.
