"Everywhere Babies" - Hadley has just reached the point of sitting still long enough to be read to. This is her most favorite book that she likes for us to read over and over and over. I just about have the entire book memorized. The very cutest thing though, is on the second page when I read the line "Everyday, everywhere, babies are kissed..." and she leans over and gives me a kiss *muah*
She is still loving on her baby dolls and carries them around with her through out the house. Her other favorite toy right now are her Duplo blocks (Legos). She has learned how to put them together and take them apart and has even starting creating some structural masterpieces! :)
"Peekaboo Song", "Wheels On the Bus", "Baby Beluga"
She is loving her "Wheels On the Bus" nursery rhyme DVD!
Fruit & cheese, though she hasn't ever turned anything away yet. She is still a great eater!

Loving anything musical. She loves when we go to story time and sing songs and also enjoys watching nursery rhyme music videos on YouTube. She has memorized the videos and knows what song they are going to sing just by seeing the characters. Her favorite is "Boo" (the Peekaboo song) which she sings along to!
Likes to take an occasional afternoon nap in bed with Mommy. She has finally calmed down enough to settle in without trying to jump off the bed.
Working puzzles! She can put her puzzle pieces in the correct spots and will build and re-build her stacking rings toy until the rings are in the correct order! Smarty!!
Picking up new things left and right! She knows which foods are hot and which are not and will blow on her food to cool it off when necessary. She is a total sponge and does whatever we do!
Goes to bed around 8PM and wakes up around 7:45AM! Let's keep this schedule forever, shall we! :)
She is a kissing fool! She gives Mommy & Daddy lots of kisses and even makes the *muah* sound effect!
Speed walking! She is on the move big time and doesn't care for being confined to a stroller or shopping cart. I usually let her out once most of my shopping is done to give her a little freedom and also, just out of curiosity, to see what she'll do and where she wants to go! She loves exploring, but thankfully doesn't stray too far from Mama!
She has gotten good at listening, understanding, and completing tasks that we ask her like, "Bring Mommy your baby please". I was super proud when I asked her to take her egg shakers back to the stage at the library after we were done with them. She walked by herself, put them in the box, and then came back to me!
She loves taking out her bow and throwing it on the ground, but will sometimes pick it up, bring it to me, and say "bow" (meaning put it back in). :)
She is in a major pinching stage. She thinks it's hilarious to pinch even though we act hurt or upset when she does it. Still working on taming our little crab....
She stalls before bed time! When Daddy says it's time for bed she'll quickly cozy up to Mommy or even pretend to be interested in reading a book all of a sudden! I have a feeling this is only the beginning of bed time shenanigans!
She loves being around other kids! She is gentle with babies (unless she wants their paci) and is in awe of big kids. At a birthday party last weekend she went up to and hugged the birthday girl! It was the sweetest!!
