another weekend...

Justin and I were discussing this past week how fast the days, weeks and months are flying by... and here we are, entering another week! Crazy! I sure wish time would slow down! But, the times are great, and, at the same time, I am kinda wishing that next week would be May, and we would be leaving on our Turks and Caicos vacation for A&A's wedding! I am so ready for the beach with friends and family, maybe a few umbrella drinks and watching H as she plays in the ocean for the second time! :) ...cold weather always makes me think about sand and the ocean!
But... in reality here we are, in the cold! Oh well... this sweet girl always makes my days better no matter the weather conditions! She is just too funny these days!
Friday night, when Justin and H got home, we left to go shopping for Riley's birthday! We found him some super fun stuff... although Justin kept migrating to Hadlea's toys section, and I kept migrating to Hadlea's clothes section! After shopping, we picked up dinner and came home to eat and play with H! Our friends, G and Taran, called to see what we were up to and headed over. Hadlea and Trevin got to play for a while before she started melting and needed to go to bed. She did make it until 9PM, however! :)
Saturday morning, we got up and Aunt Amanda made a visit to adjust Hadlea. Auntie A is a Chiropractor, and she has worked with so many kids with ear infections. I used to be so good with getting Hadlea adjusted, which may be why she hasn't had a ear infection like this before she turned 1. I have to do a better job with getting her in!
Saturday morning, I decided it was time to start taking H off the morning bottle. She only has her morning and night bottle now, and we really need to get rid of them both. So... I put her milk in her sippy and warmed it a bit, walked into her room and when she looked at it, you would have thought I had beat her! OMGoddness... she was beyond mad and cried for almost 20 minutes. She cried so long, her daddy came in to check on her and she was laying in the floor throwing the biggest tantrum. I tried to console her, but when I realized it wasn't going anywhere, I walked out of the room and sat in the living room and she eventually came in there and drank her sippy! It was not a pretty site! She was much better after getting a drink and some food. We then got ready for Riley's birthday party! How cute is this?!
Grammie and I went shopping right after H was born at a little boutique and bought alot of their 12 month sale items! I think it was originally around $90 and I got it for $20! Obviously a good purchase! :) Her daddy loved the hat and wanted her to wear it, but she wouldn't keep it on, so we went with a bow... 
Hadlea and the birthday boy, Riley Clay!

 Opening presents!
Riley had such a great birthday! It is so hard to believe he is 9 years old! It has been such a blessing to be a part of his life. He just loves Hadlea and it melts my heart. It was so much fun to see him interact with his friends. No doubt he is probably the life of his class! He is always saying something so funny!
When we got home from the party, we spent some time playing with H! She has been lovin' on her babies more than normal. She will also lay them on pillows and cover them with blankets and lay beside them... Justin and I wonder where she learns some of this stuff! While we were playing, she would lay her baby down and then lay on top of it and pat it... like she was trying to put it to sleep! I wonder if this is what they do to her at daycare when she sleeps on a mat. Oh... how I would like to spend one day watching her at daycare! :)
Saturday night, we were invited to a last minute party at the Roumbanis house. Most of the same people from New Year's Eve were there so it was nice to see some of them again. We took H and she was SUPER good! She was somewhat the life of the party. She would walk around carrying her babies, keys and lipstick and share with everyone! She is normally really shy, but everyone was so good to show her attention and play with her. As we were getting ready to put her down to sleep {which wasn't until after 10PM!}, I changed her into her pjs and she was telling everyone goodnight. She had warmed up to a few of the other guys who she would actually go to and then someone handed her to Rashaun Woods. (Rashaun played at OSU {Oklahoma State University} and then played in the NFL for the 49ers. He now lives and coaches in Oklahoma City.) She wasn't too fond of Rashaun, obviously! Everyone got a big laugh!
On Sunday, I got up and ready for church. I was going to let Hadlea sleep until she woke up since we got home late from the night before, and she didn't have a great nap the day before because we had to wake her up to go to Riley's party. Church was at 11:00... and she finally woke up at 11:30! So... I guess the 5PM mass was our option! :)
After she got up, I was afraid we would have the same reaction to the morning sippy cup. It wasn't 'as bad', but she still wasn't happy to see the sippy cup. She didn't ever drink the milk, but she did finally drink some water and Gatorade. After breakfast, H got some play time in with daddy...
They played with the blanket, babies and her bows! She thought it was super funny that daddy would wear a bow! She would bend over, look at him and do her 'growling' laugh! She is so entertaining! I wonder what we did for entertainment before her?! 
This little boy took his Sunday afternoon nap!
This chair gets ALOT of use! :)
Sunday afternoon, I went to get my hair done and daddy went to work on his boat, so Alan and Amanda babysat. They took H over to some of their friends that have two girls so Hadlea got a playdate! They said she was super good and had fun! Auntie A sent this picture of her make-shift high chair of blankets!
It was a great weekend!
Here's to another good fast week...
but hopefully next weekend will be slower!!
