So Hungry

Hadley Loves to eat. Especially now that her food has flavor to it. We started her on rice cereal about a month ago. She caught on the concept of eating with a spoon really quick and really well. We tried that out for about 2 weeks and decided it was time to mix things up! (I had the cutest video of her eating one of the first times that I wanted to post. Apparently videos have to be 100 MG in order to download on here. Mine was 400 MG. Lame. So if anybody knows how to fix that... let me know)

We were given wonderful advice to start with veggies. It made perfect sense. So we started with GREEN BEANS! NOT GOOD! Poor Hadley. She tried to like them, but she just gagged them back up. I honestly really couldn't blame her. I decided to go with something a little more enjoyable, and we tried CARROTS! It was night and day. Hadley LOVES carrots. (as you can see in the picture above.) We tried that for about a week and decided to change it up. My nephew, Jack, loved orange foods and that was all that he would eat for awhile, and his skin began to have an orange tint. This made me think that Hadley was headed for the same direction. Even if I had an oompa loompa for a baby, I knew I would still love her, but I was hoping this couldn't be the case. So I opted to try out PEAS. At first she seemed a little confused by the change, but she doesn't seem to mind. She really likes the peas. Which makes me happy that she likes a little bit of variety. We just recently have made that change, so we'll give that a go for awhile, before we switch it up on her again.

Hadley is 5 months now and is growing like a weed! Well, in my horticulture class, I learned the definition of weed is a plant that you don't want... I want Hadley. So she is growing like growing flower... wow. Anyway - She is such a delight. She loves to roll on to her belly, and I'm just waiting for the day when she gets up on her knees. (hopefully later than sooner, I'm fine with her not being mobile). She is now really interacting with her toys. It's so fun to watch her figure out how things work. And she enjoys the toys now, instead of just looking at them and trying to figure out why mom was trying to make her hold these colorful objects. She is giggling more and more, and will always give you a grin or a smile. Even through her tears.

I don't know about you, but I like her.

4 Month Update

Little Miss Hadley is 4 months now! We went to the doctor's find out the little details of our little princess.Weight: 12 lbs. 14 oz. (36 percentile)
Length: 25 inches (80 percentile)
Head Circumference: 15.7 inches (20 percentile)

We love her little head. But it does carry BIG BLUE eyes and an enormous smile (accented with dimples). She is tall and skinny like her dad, and is the spitting image of her mom. Hadley is a wonderful baby. I feel so spoiled. She is very pleasant and hardly ever fusses - unless you are getting in the way of feeding time - watch out! She has an amazing set of pipes! She does sleep through the night. If she does wake up, usually it's just for a quick little feed, and she goes right back to sleep. She loves to be center of attention. (Shocking, I know - look at her parents) She loves to talk and has the cutest little giggle. She is also rolling over. Most babies her age are rolling from their tummy to back, but she decided to be unique and roll from back to tummy. We are practicing doing it the other way - and she doesn't appreciate it. If only she can figure out that she just needs to move that arm of hers... She'll figure it out. She's tough. She also has an amazing wardrobe, thanks to everyone who has donated. We love our "Little Mad Hadder". We can't even remember what life was like without her!

Howard the Duck

We don't have cable. Lame. I know. But, why pay for something for a place we will be leaving in the near future. Not to mention we couldn't find anything that was less than 2 years. meaning we would have to pay an additional cancellation fee. (We actually thought ahead).

Because of this, we are proud members of Netflix. We log on through XBox Live. There you can instantly watch random movies or TV shows. I was flipping through my options when I found this...

I was excited. I remember loving this show when I was little! I couldn't remember the plot so I decided to watch it....

What a waste. My opinions in movies sucked as a child.

Hadley's Blessing

We had Hadley's baby blessing on March 7

John did a wonderful job. I am
so grateful that I have an amazing husband who holds the priesthood. He is my sexy man of God!

We were so lucky to have friends and family there. It was fun to have Hadley's both set of grandparents there!

Hadley was so beautiful all dressed in white! We are proud parents! We love her so much.
