Hailey at 6 months










H....happy
A....adorable
I....irresistable
L....loving
E....enamoring
Y....yummy (wow, that was pretty lame for y...any other ideas for a y word?)

The first two pictures were taken last night when I went to check on her before I went to bed. She was seriously sleeping like that. The rest of the pictures were taken one after the other as she went from sitting to face plant. Then sitting to falling backwards. She is getting better and better at sitting each day. It is so FUN to have all day alone with Hailey. I seriously savor each moment with her as I rock her, sing to her, play with her, smile and laugh together, and even occasionally take a nap cuddled up together. It is like having one child all over again. I LOVE it! I also love walking to the bus stop at 3:00 and having my two little girls run into my arms and tell me all about their day.

Cloey just cannot get enough of school. Although, she is really bothered with the fact that they are not learning more and getting homework. She was also very upset yesterday because a lot of kids in her class got their stick pulled when they were supposed to "be on their best behavior" for the substitute.

And Katelund...is my challenge. She thinks Cloey is crazy for wanting homework because she absolutely hates it. She definitely keeps me on my toes as a mother, but that's a good thing. I wouldn't have her any other way (please remind me of that this afternoon around 3:30). Other than that life is great. I feel like Cory and I kiss in passing each day everyday as he or I are running out the door for meetings or presidency visits. But the great part about being anxiously engaged as a family, is that the Lord blesses you. He always provides a way, of that I am certain.

What a cutie! I think she looks a lot like you and your other girls! My kids would do the same thing when they slept. They would literally put their faces up to the side of their beds and even their toodler beds! Crazy, I know, but maybe it gives them comfort!

Happy 6 months, Hailey and family! It's awesome to have that alone time with baby. It was one of my motivations for starting B in a few hours of preschool when I had M.

It's been six months already?! She is seriously ADORABLE! So, I am picturing Katelund looking just like that when she was a baby-but with lighter hair. Give those cheeks some kisses from me!!!!
