Haylee's First Birthday.

Haylee's Birthday was on December 21st. I can't believe she is already 1. We are so grateful to have her in our lives and she has brought us so much joy. She is a miracle and had taught me so much. I love her so much and it's a privilege to be her mother.
So the morning of her birthday she opened her presents from just mom and dad. Then later that night we had a small family party. It was so much fun. Thank you guys for showing up and supporting us in Haylee's Birthday, and thank you for all the gifts for Haylee she loves them.

I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays. I love getting together with family, eating all that good food, and just being able to be with the ones I love. This Thanksgiving has been extra special because it was Haylee's first. I am so grateful for her and can't believe it has almost been a year since she has come into our life. Haylee is like her mother and loved all the food we ate and spending time with family, taking baths with her cousin, and being with her aunts and uncles.

A little update on Haylee as well. She is now 11 months. Last month she learned how to crawl, and then this month she stands up on everything she can get her hands on. I think she will be walking very soon. Haylee loves to talk. She loves to talk to anything, mostly her toys and the cat. It is so cute watching her do this. I love it. She has started saying more words, she finally says mama. The thing she has just started doing is when she sees the cat she will say "kitty, meow meow." and when we ask her what a puppy says she does this cute little woof, woof. I can't believe my baby is going to be 1 in 20 days. I am excited, and kind of sad that she has grown up so quickly. But I love Haylee and I am so grateful that she is a healthy, happy, baby.

10 months

Haylee is 10 months old. She is getting so big and growing up so fast. She has so much personality and I still can't believe she will be a year old in 2 months.

Some facts about Haylee.

1- She has found her loud voice and will scream and squeak. She loves to smile and laugh especially when you make funny faces at her.

2- Her hair is still out of control.

3- We can finally put pigtails in her hair.

4- She is almost crawling. She will get up on all 4's and crawl backwards but now forwards yet.

5- She can hold her bottle now but only when she feels like it.

6- Her favorite foods are eggs, strawberries, sweet potatoes, and bread.

7- She can say Dada and Kitty

8- Loves to play patty cake and her favorite song is wheels on the bus.

She is such a happy girl and we love her so much!

Family in Town

So at the beginning of this month my sister Elyse came from California to stay with my mom for the month while her husband Steve went to Yuma t
o work and then my brother Tony and his wife Rachel and there daughter Evelyn came to visit the second week of October. It has been so fun and Haylee has really loved being able to see and get to know her Aunts and
Uncle and her cousin and so am I.

Haylee and Evelyn. Evelyn was so good with Haylee and helpful.

First Trip To The Park

So Labor Day was Haylee's first trip to the park. I had a horrible migraine in the morning and Mike was kind enough to watch Haylee while I rested. Thanks Mike. In the afternoon we picked up some food and headed over to the park. It was a really nice day and we had a lot of fun. I think its safe to say that Haylee loves to swing. All in All it was a good labor day.

Haylee has been so happy lately. I really love this stage she is in. She is finding new things all the time and interacts with everyone all the time. She is so sweet and I mean how can you look at her sweet face and not love her.

June Already

I can't believe it is already June.

Haylee has been growing up so fast. I remember everybody telling me that and me thinking yeah yeah. But now that I have a child it is so true I really can't believe how fast time goes. Haylee is almost 6 months old. She now eats baby food. She is more interactive with her world. She knows who I am and who Mike is. She has so much personality and loves other children. She is also starting to be able to entertain herself better and doing better when she is left alone in a room. She sleeps through the night for the most part and is a very happy baby.

I also can't believe that we have been living in our house for 2 years now. I love having a home a good neighborhood for Haylee to be able to grow up in. Mike and I are going on 6 years of marriage and even though it has been hard at times I love him more then anything and am so grateful I am sealed to him for time and all eternity. My life is so blessed and I am so grateful for all that I have.

Here are some pictures of Haylee over the past few months.

Haylee 4 months

Haylee turned 4 months on the 21st and I can't believe time has gone by so fast. Haylee is such a good baby and her personality is finally coming out more. She is such a good baby. She is pretty mellow unless she wants something and then she will tell you. She can go from happy to mad in about 2 seconds. She rolled over for the first time on April 27th. She is almost always smiling and has started to laugh a little.

Things Haylee likes
-She loves bath time
-She loves to read stories
-She loves being rocked to sleep and for the most part still likes to cuddle
-She loves getting undressed and being naked.
-Loves when Daddy bounces her on his lap
-Smiles every morning when we go and get her out of bed.
-Loves to sit in her bumbo and watch what is going on
-and she is fascinated by watching mom and dad eat
-She loves being outside

Things Haylee Hates
-she hates being left alone
-Hates her car seat more then anything
-Thinks it's torture getting dressed
-does not like tummy time

All in all she is a really good baby and we have enjoyed every second from the day she was born sans the crying spells that seemed like they would never end. She has started to sleep through most of the night, and she loves her routine for bedtime.I can't even begin to describe the love that I feel for her and I am so grateful for Mike for being such a good dad and helping out with her. Haylee loves spending time with her dad. She also had her first taste of rice cereal. She seems okay with it but I don't think she is quite ready to eat it all the time. She is getting so big and is such a joy in our lives. I am extremely grateful to my Heavenly Father for sending me such a amazing baby.

Here are some pictures of her over the past few months.

The flower is as big as Haylee's head.
