Beach Trip

In this post Haley is 8 months and 16 days old~

Hi everyone, hope you have all been doing well. We went to Orange Beach Alabama last weekend with our close friends Stuart, Sarah and Pressley Carothers. We've been planning this trip since Haley was about 2 months old, and though we had a great time, it was cut short by Hurricane Gustov. We were there from Friday until Sunday morning, and had to head out. It wouldn't have been bad, but the thought of possibly having to leave loomed over us all, and it was hard to enjoy ourselves worrying about a hurricane. But, we did the best we could, got a little bit of sun, and had great company!

Haley is doing great, her sixth tooth FINALLY came through on Tuesday. So she can really chew things up now, not that she is interested in some new foods. We are trying stage 3 foods, and she isn't quite sure about them yet. She is the queen of blowing "raspberries" and she LOVES to do that to show she doesn't like something. It is VERY fun!

She is starting to pull herself over onto her belly, it is hard to believe that it is the same child who has fought being on her stomach for so long. I guess she is figuring out that is how she is going to get moving!

Ethan's parents are coming to town Saturday to see us, well probably mostly Haley :) We are excited and looking foward to their visit.

Hope all is well, and I'll keep y'all updated on crawling progress! Oh, I almost forgot, she DOES have a new talent, she claps....with her feet! I'll try and get it on video, as it is very amusing! Y'all take care!

Love, Susan

Love that she keeps looking at the sand like, "what is this?" SOOO FUNNY! Praise the Lord she didn't pull a Zoe and start shoveling it in her mouth! I'm impressed with her intense concentration on the sand, too, like she's really trying to figure it out! Clapping with her feet!?! REALLY!?! I'm so awaiting the video of that! Love ya!
