Happy Birthday Haley!

WOW! Haley is ONE! I can hardly believe it! She is the cutest thing ever! The whole family could just eat her up! Ever since she has started crawling, she is the happiest kid ever. She loves doing all the stairs - up and down - and will follow her siblings wherever they may go. She pretty much has me wrapped around her finger. I can't wait for her to walk! Her clothes get SO FILTHY! That has to be the worst thing about crawling. Her favorite food is probably a banana. She eats a whole banana in minutes. We hand her a whole banana, and she goes to town - stuffing her cheeks. No choking as of today! She has her well check in the morning, so we will find out how her weight is doing. I am no longer worried about her. I think she may be a bit smaller than other kids, but she's happy, she's developmentally on track, and she eats like a champ. I decided to take matters into my own hands, and I started her on SILK Soy Milk - Vanilla. She loves it, and she hasn't vomitted it up. I have to confess to the doctor tomorrow, so wish me luck! (I only started it a week ago...I just can't afford another round of formula for $800! - the last round lasted barely 5 months!)


Tonight I had a photo shoot, so afterwards I decided to take some One Year Photos of Haley. We put her in a new dress that I bought her over the weekend ($8 at Children's Place - Kristin has one to match) and she immediately drooled all over it(her top two teeth are coming in, finally), but I think I got a few cute ones. Oh, disclaimer: we normally don't let our girls wear sleeveless anything. We figure if we teach our girls to be modest now, it will never be an issue. Also, we won't have to explain later why there's a magic age that you all of a sudden have to be modest. You should always be modest. Also, having boys, we sure hope all other parents teach their girls to be modest. BUT, I just got this dress on Saturday. I couldn't find a black sweater to go over it, or a nice black shirt to go under it. Troy about had a fit that I was taking her picture in it, but part of me wanted to document that she's a BIT chubby now, so showing her arms gives me that satisfaction, and I didn't have time to go search for a black sweater. Here are my favorite three...isn't she cute? (not biased - at all!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAYS! We love you!
