Catch up!

Playing catch up again! You would think not much can happen in two weeks, but that thought could not be farther from the truth! I have now survived the first two weeks of school. I wanted to blog every night, but spending time with Hallie was first on my agenda! Then sleep...then blogging. lol. On going back to teaching...I have a great group of kids, and I think it's going to be a good year. Hallie is adjusting a little more to daycare every day. Jonathan takes her in the mornings, and she's not so keen on the idea at that point, but it doesn't take her long to start playing with the other two kids her age!

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!
