Favorite Book: "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" She is pretty obsessed with the alphabet letters right now, so this book is definitely her new fav!
Favorite Foods: Still popcorn, or as she calls it "paw-corn". She'd eat this and this alone for every meal if we'd let her. She is also a little cookie monster, but we only give her them sparingly.
Favorite TV Show: Bubble Guppies! A cartoon with little mermaid girls and boys. It's a pretty cute show and educational, so we let her watch her "Guppies" while Mommy cooks dinner.
Her very favorite activity is brushing her teeth. She brushes them at least 5 times a day. I'm not sure if it's the novelty of standing on her step stool, the excitement of sticking her toothbrush under the water faucet, or that she is just really into good hygiene, but I guess there are worse concerns we could have!
She has a major obsession with school busses! We try to go sit on the front porch around 4:15pm every day as the busses are en route from the middle school to the high school. About 12 of them drive past us in a 10 minute span and Hadley is in HEAVEN! "BUUUUSSSSSS!!! Another BUSSSSSSS!!!!" :)
As soon as she wakes up in the morning, she tiptoes to our room, ALWAYS with something in tow. It's like she's bringing us an offering to come get in bed with us. Sometimes it's a doll, a book, a puzzle piece, a stuffed animal, 3 pacifiers, etc. It's always amusing to see what she will bring us each morning!
She has a "boyfriend" named Hunter in her Mother's Day Out class! :) One day Hunter's mother and I arrived to pick them up at the same time and Hunter gave Hadley a hug goodbye! So sweet! Their teachers informed us that they also like to sit on the classroom bench together! His Mama is a Longhorn, so we, of course, approve. She told me that he says Hadley's name on mornings before school. Too cute! Luckily, they will be in the same Tuesday/Thursday 2 year old MDO class next year, as well. :)
Being a little chatter bug! She learns new words daily and even surprises me with some that she knows. Like "cool!" Haha! Our communication has never been better as she is able to answer me with a "yes" or "no" about things that she wants. She still has her own babble language, but we are getting better able to decipher it! :)
What a treat it is to be your parents! When you aren't frustrated trying to get your way, you are the sweetest thing. Sometimes you'll look me right in the eye and then give me a kiss, without my even asking. You are pretty generous with your hugs, as well. We love watching you light up at the simple things in life like a trip down the slide, a passing bus, an airplane in the sky, or Daddy coming home from work. We just adore you, sweet girl, and hope that you always find such joy in the world around you!
Happy 21 Months!!!
