Big Girl Halley

Well it only took me four months but we're baaaaccckk! We might as well come back with a birthday celebration, right?

As always, life has been busy. Summer came and went, work kicked into high gear for me, and Halley started the not-so-lovable two year old tantrums early. Randy was running a race in Savannah the first week of November so we decided to have her 2nd birthday party there and make it easy for all (most) of the extended family. There were some others runners so we decided to have a pasta party, let the kids run around in the backyard, fill them with sugar, and send them home.

I know all parents love their children but man, I could just eat this little girl up.  Thankfully, her "My playground" "My elbow" "My shoes" phase has lessened so I can like her a little more too.  ;)

Some updates on Miss HJ....

-she weighs 26 lbs and is 33 3/4 inches tall (looks like she'll be pushing 5'8"!)
-she is learning to sing her ABC's (they go like this "A B C R L O P...")
-her favorite movie is Sound of Music which she calls "Doe a Deer" (which is also her favorite song)
-we moved her to a "big girl bed" about two weeks ago and she's adjusted like a champ (she's also sleeping in my bed as a child which is a real circle-of-life moment)

-she loves to get dizzy and fall down
-she's big on leaving the room and announcing "see ya yater....ha save trip"
-she is obsessed with coloring with markers (including her hands, face, and legs)
-when I tell her "I love you" she responds with "I yuv you moooore"

What can top that?!?!  I actually have some more pictures to post so check back...maybe even as soon as next week!  Shocking, I know.

Happy Hump Day.
