Hallie is becoming so independent! Each morning I lay her clothes out for her. The other morning, she did not approve of my choice and let her daddy know it! She loves cleaning things up, reading, and just playing in general. She enjoys pretending to feed her animals, Mommy, and Daddy. It is really cute to watch! She is mastering several words now, too. But, she is also having some tantrums when she feels she isn't being understood. It's not fun. Mommy and Daddy are reading Happiest Toddler on the Block (Dr. Harvey Karp), and we are already seeing a difference. We really liked the techniques in Happiest Baby on the Block and thought we'd give the second one a chance. I only wish I had read it before now! :o)
Below are some pictures from the past couple of weeks. Grammy, Ra-Ra, and Uncle Jeremy joined us Labor Day for some hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill. Hallie was SO excited to get to go swimming--we haven't been in a long time. She loves the water so much! And Hallie loves playing with her blocks. She's wearing one shoe...she loves wearing Mommy's shoes!
Playing with Uncle Jeremy
Hallie loves her blocks!
Knocking over the tower! So much fun!
