Hey, y’all. Long time no see… no one told me that life would be so crazy juggling a 17 month old and starting a new business! ;)
Anyway, I have been collecting these videos (and photos) for a while in hopes that I would find the time to upload them all to do this post. I know I have said it a million times and at every age, but this age is definitely my favorite so far…Hadley is so much fun, and developing such a little personality. I love SO many more things than are in this list, but I have to share some of my most favorite things that she is doing/saying right now.
Disclaimer: these aere all iPhone videos so the quality isn’t great. Also, I’m a photographer but I am most certainly NOT a videographer. Sorry bout it!
So, here we go. I never, ever want to forget:
1- How she has so much fun with her Daddy. They LOVE to be silly together and I love to watch it.
Related: I never want to forget the way she calls out “Daddyyyyyyyyyyyyyy” over and over all day long. She loves him. (And I love the way she says it).
2- The way she runs everywhere she goes. My mom says I was the same way until I left for college (though if you see me running now, call the cops because someone is definitely chasing me!) ;)
I could watch her do that all day long (good thing, too, since I pretty much do). :)
3- The way Hadley says “bless” after anyone sneezes (or coughs…). Sweetest girl.
4- How she plays with her bubbles in the tub and especially the way she calls them “bubbies”. It will be a sad, sad day for me when she learns how to actually say “bubbles”.
Sorry for the crotch shots of Jon. HA. They were kind of unavoidable to get H in the video. ;)
5- How she figures out new things and concentrates so hard on things. I can certainly see her little wheels spinning!
6- The way she says “oh noooo”. Loud noise? “oh noooo”. Drops something? “oh noooo”. Just riding in her carseat? “oh noooo”. Love it.
7- How she plays and delights in the smallest things. She is a dare devil and isn’t afraid of anything (she gets that from me…not her Daddy!). Related: I never want to forget that little giggle.
8- The way Hadley says “Hi!” and “Hey!” to every.single.person. we pass in Target/Trader Joe’s/the post office etc. I wish I had a video of this, but just imagine her saying it at the top of her lungs, and if (heaven forbid) the people ignore her, she only says it louder until they pay attention to her. What can I say, she loves the attention! ;)
9- The way that Hadley loves Ralph…and vice versa. He has been even better than I can imagine with her and often times takes some abuse from her… but he loves her
because she feeds him tons of food. And she most definitely loves her “bubbie”/”ra-ra-ra-ra-ralph”/”raaaaalphie”. I don’t have a great video of this so I will go with photo evidence of this one. ;)
10- And finally…her “fake laugh”. She does this if other people are laughing… and she has found that when she does it, it makes them KEEP laughing, so she keeps doing it. Total ham.
All for now…the munchkin is awake and it’s time to play!
