We have been having a nice visit with Grandma Kiefaber.  Today we drove around town and looked at houses.  We had lunch at The Pilot House which is on the Riverfront.  Our food was delicious especially the Carolina Bisque.  It is really yucky outside so we are just spending time in the house, hanging out and talking.

Haley went to bed tonight without much fuss, she had a long day and was ready to sleep.  We had tacos for dinner and they were delicious.  Haven't had tacos in a long time.  It was definitely a nice homecooked meal.


Today is starting off to be a pretty good one.  Haley has been enjoying some Dad time this morning, which is nice, for them and me!  We are waiting for Grandma Kiefaber to show up today.  She will be staying with us till Sunday.  It should be a really nice visit.

Haley went to bed at her normal time of 8pm, but woke up at 11:30pm to eat.  She never does that, but I think she night be having a growth spurt.  She finally went back to sleep at 1am and slept till 9am.


Yesterday was a fun day.  We decided to keep enjoying this nice 80 degree weather, so we gave Haley a bath outside.  She doesn't usually take a bath, but with the way the weather was, we just couldn't resist.  We also took a walk around the yard, and are thinking about getting a small inflatable pool to splash around in, but I think we will wait until after the rain we are going to have the next 4 days.

Today is a bit cooler out, the sun isn't really shining.  We are having a cleaning day today and getting ready for our visit with Grandma Kiefaber.  We are very excited to spend the next few days with her.  Haley is taking her morning nap, and so far today has been great. 

Cleaned the house today, so it wasn't very eventful.  We did have a visit from our friend Matt from Charlotte, NC.  It was fun catching up and having him meet Haley.  Haley had a good day.  She wanted to be very independent for most of it.  She spent a lot of alone time talking and giggling to herself in her crib.  It is fun watching her do that, she makes these great expressions.  She did have a rough time getting to bed tonight though, but now she is sound asleep dreaming, as I should be.


So I missed posting yesterday.  We had a good one.  We spent a lot of time outdoors, it was beautiful.  We danced and sang to some Fleetwood Mac, she likes them a lot.  Went to the Grocery Store finally, so now the cupboard and fridge are full.

Today Haley woke up at 8am again, it seems this is her new wake up time, no complaints here.  She wanted to play in her Jumperoo after she ate, she was in there for about an hour, she loves that thing.  We decided to dance around again before her nap, which she is now waking up from. 

We decided to go to our friend Kevin's for a BBQ and conversation.  We had a good time out in the sunshine.  Came home and had a rough go again at getting to sleep.  This teething stuff stinks, poor girl.


Haley woke up late today, she was up at 8am, so we got to sleep in a little, which was nice.  Guess hanging out outside in the nice warm weather and going to Jenn's wore her out yesterday.  It is nice outside again this morning so we went on a walk and spent some time in the backyard.  I am so happy it is warming up.  Haley loves the outdoors, so now we can do more outside!  Maybe the park is in order after her nap.

We all, including Dixie, decided to go on a drive with the windows down.  It was nice to get out of the house and Haley got to watch the world around her.

We came back home after stopping by the Pet Store to see the kitties.  Haley had a rough go at getting to bed, I think the time change affected her, but she finally went down.


It looks like no matter what time Haley goes to bed whether it be 6, 7, or 8pm she stills gets up by 6am.  It was still dark out when we woke up.  I'll get used to it though.  We got her "Baby Legs" in the mail yesterday, for those of you who don't know they are leggings for kids, makes it easier to do diaper changes when you don't have to take off pants or a sleeper, they also keep her legs warm while changing her too.   So this morning we tried on a couple pairs, they are pretty cute.  Right now we are working on a nap, and as I watch her on the video monitor she is just checking out her nails, working on falling asleep.  It gives me peace of mind having the monitor, knowing I can watch her to make sure she is ok...call me paranoid, but it makes me feel better.

We ended up going over to Ryan and Jenn's for a visit.  Haley had a great time hanging out and talking with her friends...LOL  Haley and I played Wii Bowling against them and did pretty well.  We make a great team!  Had a great night and then went home and hit the sack.


So Haley is just too cute, although I don't know if that is possible!  She has this smile that melts my heart every time.  This morning she is having a great time in her Jumperoo.  She plays with the dials and frog, then looks at me all giggles like she is trying to say, "Look Mom, look what I can do"  She is pretty perfect!

It warmed up today so Haley and I went outside and walked around.  She loves the outdoors and all the sounds of birds and cars driving by.  She loves to watch the trees move in the breeze.  Now we have moved into the house to listen to a little Fleetwood Mac.  More to come later...

Went over to the Guy's House for a visit, since we didn't feel like napping this afternoon.  Got to see Jay, Josh, Mark, Shane, and D.  She had a lot of laughs and then was ready to go home, eat and go to bed.  She was out within 2 minutes. 


So Haley slept from 6pm to 6am.  I wasn't expecting to have her sleep so early and I felt the routine was off, so I felt weird, like she would wake up at any moment, I was all jumpy!  Well anyway we have had a great morning so far.  She ate, played in her Jumperoo, watched Flintstones and The Jetsons, then played in her Bumbo seat.  Now two hours later she is listening to Coraline for nap time.  She is like clockwork with her routine, it makes planning the day a bit easier!

Haley had a great nap.  Today was shower day, which went well.  Dad dressed her up for errands, and then we all went off to the store.  Haley got a new teether, it is shaped like a strawberry and vibrates when she bites down on it.  It seems to soothe her gums pretty well.  Her afternoon nap was difficult at first cause of her poor little gums, but once she went down she was out for 2.5 hours!  Today was a good day, lots of giggles, smiles, and talking.  She went to bed at5 the normal time 8pm, so she should be snoozing until 7am tomorrow.


So today Haley is happy/cranky.  Haley is having trouble with teething.  Hopefully the bottom teeth will cut through in the next day or two, I hate to see her in such pain.  Naps are a struggle today, but she still manages to smile and giggle through it all.  It makes for proud mommy moments.  She loves to listen to Coraline on CD, the story lulles her to sleep, no more crying it out for bed time.  Which makes for a less stressful night!



    My name is Christen, mom to Haley and wife to Will.  I am so thankful for my family, they are everything to me.  Being a mom is more wonderful than I ever imagined.  Enjoy the updates.
