Short but Sweet Family Visit



We had so much fun with my mom, brother, and sisters, but she had already left by the time we took pictures.









I'm so glad that they were able to come, even if it was for a day. I'm excited to see them again.

Randoms!



Hailey now climbs on things and makes it hard to study sometimes..ya not always the best thing but still cute!




Hailey has hair!!! Yay! We're so excited that her hair is getting longer..now if she could just get her teeth in that would be awesome!



Hailey's Aunt Niki made her this beautiful bow for Valentine's Day but she was so cranky that this was the best picture I had of it. I'm sure she'll wear it more often so I'll take some more when she's not so grouchy.

For a brief update, Hailey says "Mama" and "Dada" ALL THE TIME!!!! It's super cute but she loves saying "Dada" more than "Mama". Lets just say that Daddy is really enjoying that! Haha! Hailey now gives "fives", kisses, hugs, crawls, takes steps with objects, bounces in her jump-a-roo, well Logan's anyway. She throws things and makes messes...yay for me. She hits and bites...not too excited about that. Thank goodness she doesn't have any teeth because I'm sure it would hurt a lot more. She is just getting so big so fast!!! I love her so much! She has been such a blessing and I'm so excited that she is turning one soon!!!

Hailey's First Steps!



Hailey never ceases to surprise me with how well she catches on to things. The other day, when we were alone of course, she started walking behind her train...without my help or guidance! It was so cool to see but of course she won't do it when I ask her to so that I can make a movie out of it! This is her cheesy smile that could make anyone smile! Haha!



She LOVES her train!

Hailey's First Kit Kat Bar!



Haha! This was so much fun to watch...until the clean up came anyway.



She absolutely loved her kit kat bar...can you tell?!



Haha! She looks so much like Brandon when he was younger..it's crazy!

Updated Photo of the Cousins



Last Friday it worked out that all the cousins were together...and awake for that matter. It was hard work trying to get a picture of them all together and even then they weren't all looking at the same time and not all were wanting their picture taken...but we accomplished what seemed impossible. Yay!!



They are all so stinkin cute! I'm so glad we all live close enough that we can get together like this!



Hailey and Carson are so cute when they get to play together! Carson is going to be such a good big brother! I'm so excited to have a niece!!



Haha! Logan was not wanting anymore pictures taken!

A Nice Visit

A couple of weeks ago Hailey and I went with Flint and Lisa to Rexburg to visit with Grandpa Smith and see Flint's brother Quinn because he was having a retirement party. It was such a nice visit even though the car ride seemed way longer than it was.



Grandpa Smith was so cute with Hailey..he kept thinking she was a boy, but that's okay. She gave him a kiss and really enjoyed spending time with him, which is different for her because usually she's freaked out by older people.



Oh how sweet!



He really liked having "conversations" with her...it was really sweet to watch. I'm so thankful that we got the opportunity to see him and have him meet his great-granddaughter. It was a really nice visit.

Wrestling Daddy!

She is super sneaky! Haha!

Okay, so I have to apologize right now for taking FOREVER!!!! I have to give a shout out to Tianna for reminding me how long it's been...thanks! Haha! Okay, so Hailey has this new thing where she LOVES wrestling with Brandon. He gets a kick out of it but sometimes she can be pretty rough. Haha! This is a video of her being mellow while she wrestles with him.
