Hattie growing up

Hattie has been a lot of fun lately. Fewer tantrums. More obedient. More talkative. More patient. More creative. She has become obsessed with her baby doll, constantly changing her diaper, wrapping her in blankets, nursing her, and putting her to sleep. It's fun to see her grow up. Last night we got a babysitter. All day long I told her that she would have a babysitter who would put her to sleep. So as she and Rebecca sat on the couch, I went to hug Hattie goodbye. She quickly pushed me away and said, "Just go Mom." Well! I'm glad she doesn't have any problems with babysitters!

Hattie also loves to take pictures with the camera, and this one didn't turn out half bad (in comparison).

She also loves to go see Dad at school. We go up there every so often for lunch. Hattie usually spreads her lunch out all across his study room. We all enjoy the break.

Yesterday we checked out the local cupcake shop, Peace o' Cake. Hattie was in heaven picking out her cupcakes, and could barely handle the drive home before she could eat them.

And here is our chubby Anna. It's hard to get a good picture of soon as she sees the camera she stops smiling. How I got a blue-eyed baby I sure don't know, but I hope her eyes stay this color!

Photo Shoot

A few days after Anna was released from the hospital, my cousin-in-law Cristi took baby pictures for me while we were still in Boise/Ontario. They came in the mail Saturday and I was thrilled to get them...we had been cooped up all day with two sick and very crabby kids, so it was a nice little surprise. I hope you enjoy!

She weighed about 5 lbs when we took these pictures. Now, 6 months later, she's 16+ lbs! Which one is your favorite?

PS. I uploaded the video from the previous post to YouTube so it should work better for you now.

Story time

Paul recorded this video the other day. Hattie has watched it a billion times already and laughs every time that she sees Dad in the video and exclaims, "THAT'S FUNNY!" And I love her "reading" to Anna, describing the "little fingers." What a doll!
