19 Months and Counting....

In this post Haley is 1 year, 7 months and 11 days old:

Hello friends! If you are still checking this blog in hopes that I will someday post an update...this post is for you! I don't have any good excuses, so I won't even try :) It has been 2 months nearly since I have posted, so I have a LOT to cover, I'll do my best to cover it all.

In the month of June, we had some visitors. First, Mi Mi and Pop Pop came up for a weekend to see Haley (and the rest of us) and had a wonderful time. They couldn't believe how much she had grown, and were very sad to leave and go home. They are coming back this weekend to visit, and we can't wait to see them!

Rocky, Debbie and Elijah came to town just in time to celebrate Father's day, as well as my birthday. Rocky and Debbie only stayed for two nights, and forgot to take Elijah when they left :) That was ok though, Mom was expecting it! :) Elijah spent the week here with Grammy & Pappaw, and they took him home on Friday. They stopped in Peidmont and got to see Papa and Jessica, Leon and Tristan. It was a great time and we can't wait to see them again when they come in September, AND they are bringing Debbie's parents!

Haley went to see Dr. Molly on my birthday for her 18 month checkup. Her stats at that time were: 28lbs, 33 inches tall, and a big head :) Her head was 54cm...but the good news is it didn't grow THAT much from last time. She must have a LOT of brains! :)

July has been a pretty busy month. We haven't done anything new or extra exciting, but Haley is changing every day. She loves to color, asks for milk, bows, food, just about anything she wants. She says "yes mam" when asked a question (we'll work on sir later) and when she acts up and gets into trouble, we tell her to go to her room, which she does. It's hard not to giggle. She is such a joy, but I am sure Ethan and I are just starting to pay for our raising :) I am SURE we were both angels growing up :)

We are going to get to go visit our family in Califorina next week, and we can not wait! We are taking Haley, and a bit nervous about flying with her, but hopefully she'll do great!

I don't think I missed anything. I hope everyone is doing well, and I'll try and remember to post when we get back! Love to all!
