Bubbles and Babies

Hailey now knows 28 words. She gets excited and says "wow." She's been playing peek-a-boo and says "boo." Saying "jump" and jumping on the furniture is another fun game of hers. Most recently she started saying "cold," "mine," "here," "go," and "bubbles."

And of course Hailey loves babies. This is a doll that's supposed to stay up in the cupboard until Hailey's bigger but if she sees the box she wants to play with the baby inside.

We spent Thanksgiving down at Greg and Annie's. They served an excellent Thanksgiving feast where we ate in courses throughout the day: appetizers, salad, soup, the main course, and dessert. It was nice to eat a series of small meals rather than one big meal.

Hailey had such a great time. Sean and Bri have so many fun toys to play with. And, of course, Hailey loved Baby Kaylee.

The next day we had a Thanksgiving dinner with the Ashcrafts. Kendra was in town and had everyone dress up: the men as pilgrims and the women as indians.

Now that Thanksgiving is over it's time to look forward to Christmas. We bought and decorated our Christmas tree today.

Hailey oohs and ahhs at the lights and ornaments... and broke some of them tonight. :(

A Little Bed for a Little Girl

Hailey has gotten too big for a crib. Once she started climbing out over the railing we knew it was time to convert it into a bed.

She really likes it. Hailey will climb in and out all by herself and she likes playing in her bed during the day.

Her rug was looking pretty shabby so Jeni got out the wet vac and gave it a good, deep cleaning. She took a picture to show a stripe of how it looked before.

Here's a closer view. Looked pretty dirty, huh?

What Hailey Loves

Hailey loves to play with the lock on our wine rack in our kitchen. She now says "key" all the time.

She doesn't like to be in the stroller anymore. When we walk to my mom's house she runs through everyone's yard. She loves to sit on people's front porches like she owns the place.

She also likes to open envelopes that come in the mail. She is fascinated by taking things out of the envelope and putting them back.

She is very good at helping with the laundry and washing dishes.

She loves to wear these sunglasses... all the time!

She loves to look at books.

We recently took her to a movie screening and her 3d glasses were way too big for her little head. She watched the whole movie just the same, even though it was blurry.

She even wants to wear her glasses to bed.
