Yeah, I don't really know how this happened. One second she was clean and the next I turn around and her face is COVERED in spit-up. Shirt: Clean, Hands: Clean, Face? Well, you know. Ha!
Haylie is turning into a little momma/daddy's girl. She needs attention and needs it right now and it HAS to be HER way or the highway.. doesn't sound like anyone I know.. ;) Haylie ADORES her dad and always saves the cutest little bashful smiles for him. I love it! :)
Haylie is probably one of the most observant children I've ever encountered. You do or say or show her something and she just stares at it/you with furrowed brows and a quizzical expression and then doesn't fully respond with a happy or sad face until you stop doing whatever it was you were doing. Also - It's SOOO hard to get Haylie to laugh.. SO hard. I've never met a kid this young that thinks something is only funny the first time. I'm used to hearing "Do it again! Do it again!" from just about every little kid, but not Haylie. You try everything you can think of to get her to laugh and 9 times out of 10 - NOTHING works... she just stares at you like you're a big ol' weirdo (cuz you really do look like one at that point I'm sure). When you FINALLY do something she thinks is legitimately funny, it's only funny to her the first or second time and then she's like "yeah, yeah - you did that already." But boy is her laugh hysterical. It make all those boy-I-really-look-like-a-big-freak-right-now-cuz-Im-trying-really-really-hard-to-get-my-kid-to-laugh moments all worth it! :)
Haylie could chill in her swing for hours. She just looks around with this pleased little half smile and just swings away. So cute!
Haylie LOVES sucking on her towel during bath time. I probably would have stopped wrapping her in a towel during her baths a while ago if she didn't get such a kick out of sucking the water out of it.
Haylie is the most awesome sleeper ever. I put her to bed between 8 and 9 and she'll sleep till between 6 and 7:30 in the morning! I keep telling people that Heavenly Father must not think I can handle very much because he sure sent me an easy, easy baby. :) I just love my sweet little girl!

We went to the Lion House for a family dinner on Christmas Eve Eve and boy was it a change from just last years christmas what with 3 new babies in the mix. I don't think that dinner out would have even been a possibility if we hadn't had our own banquet room (thanks Mom and Dad)! Haylie was pretty mad most the time but we did manage to get one or two pics without her wailing - the poor dear...
At the end of dinner: If you look at all the kids you can tell that at this point they are just about maxed out... and thus - so were we. :)
Hope you all had as merry a Christmas as we did! :)
