The 2+ Weeks in Review: On The Move

November 17, 2009 at 12:20 pm Leave a comment

Well, it has been too long.  But we have had a full week of sickness, a few days preparing for GranMaMa and GranPaPa’s visit and a few days of super fun.  First off, let me just say, it has been the best of times and it has been the worst of times.  Actually, that definitely overstates it on the worst side, but we have had the best time being cooped up in the house for 7 + days (Eric was home 5 of those too).  Basically, we were sick enough to need to lay low, but not so sick that we were sure death was imminent.  So, no, we did not have the flu, just some sort of viral bug that would not go away.   Our strategy for both being sick and having a busy 9 month old:  just lay on the floor and watch her play.  And we had a blast doing it!  It is amazing to see how quickly her mind is developing, and how quickly her hands and feet are moving.  Hailey stood on her own (look, no hands, Mom!), cruised about most of the first floor and crawled where she could not cruise.  She is playing with rolling things, throwing things, and putting things in and out of other things (yeah, would be better to see then to read about it).  And, sorry to say, I have only a few pictures of it all, we got pretty wrapped up in the moment.

We also took a break from laying low on Saturday and Hailey and I went to the outlet mall in San Marcos with Auntie Kristen.  Hailey enjoyed trying on hats.  She’s also a little ham for the camera these days.  I enjoyed doing a little Christmas shopping.  With Christmas quickly approaching, I have begun to get giddy as I think about all the fun Hailey will have celebrating her 1st Christmas…and all the fun we will have playing Santa!


Thankfully my mom came to our rescue for a few days last week and helped with Hailey.  Hailey enjoyed her time with Grandma and loved playing peek-a-boo with her stuffed animals.

Today we are excited to have Eric’s parents coming in for the week.  And then somehow, next week is Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to a great week with my family.   

Hailey has also enjoyed her new talking tea set.  She loves to offer it to Jango as well, but Jango is not really one for tea.  Sorry for the action shot….getting both of them still for a moment is, well, impossible.
