Let me just say, I love Hadley being a toddler. I don't want to jinx anything, but I think she may have grown out of her crankiness...for awhile anyway.

She is so sweet, loving and happy for the most part. The only time she is really fussy is when she is tired or her teeth are bothering her. She loves giving hugs and kisses and cuddling with me while I read her a book or play with a toy. She brings a book or toy to me and scoots her butt against me trying to get me to open my legs so she can lay in between them and rest her leg on my thigh. She is seriously so precious.

 I am still on "vacation" and dread going home because it never gets easier. I hate taking Hadley away from her family that she never gets to see. They love her so much and have so much fun with her. I feel like I am depriving her from social skills since she is always only surrounded by Adam and I. She was so scared of everybody when we first got here, but started to warm up real fast and now she loves her family. It seriously breaks my heart to live so far away from everybody that I love. But, Adam is seriously wanting to get out of the Army if he can find a job where he can make the same or more amount that he is now, and let's be honest, that isn't easy in this economy. So wish us luck! I will try to update again soon. Here is a new picture for your entertainment of course!

Long time no see..

Man, it's hard to find time to blog when you are on vacation. The funny this is, that I'm not really even doing anything. A lot has happened since I updated last. My baby turned into a 1 year old toddler. We went to the aquarium for her birthday, and she could have cared less about the fish. 

Her birthday was the 14th, but we had her party on the 17th. It was a pretty big hit. I think there were like 35 people here. Way more than I thought would be here. She slept for the first hour, but that turned out to be ok because everybody was watching the UT game and we just went ahead and ate. 

I have tons more pictures, but that would totally overload my blog. We will still be in Tennessee until October 3rd and mom's vacation has ended so Hadley and I pretty much just chill around the house by ourselves. She is cutting her 5th tooth so she is very cranky and whiny. Teething is one of the worst things in the world! I won't get to take Hadley is her 12 month check up until she is actually 13 months which bothers me, but I guess it will be ok. I am so curious as to how much she weighs. She is getting so heavy to carry around!

Blogging from the road!

I thought I would post a little update since I am stuck in a car for 8ish hours.

We are leaving South Carolina on our way to Tennessee. Our beach vacation is over, but that's ok because our 3 week vacation with my family starts! I am so very excited to see my mom that tears come to my eyes just thinking about it.

We had a pretty good time at the beach. Hadley wasn't crazy about kid ocean, but she loved to eat sand and tried to eat seashells. I am actually glad to be done with the sand. The kid had sand in every crevice, every day.

Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.

Away we go!

Tomorrow morning at 4:00 a.m. I will be waking up to get ready to head to the airport to fly to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I am getting very anxious and very excited! I DREAD the plane ride because Hadley and I both aren't that fond of flying. I will be waking her up 3 hours before her normal time and I just pray that she goes back to sleep on the plane and sleeps for that 3 hour flight. Then, we will have an hour layover in Atlanta, and then another hour flight to Myrtle Beach. I hope it goes by fast with little stress. Yeah right.

I will try to post pictures from my phone, as I won't have my computer to blog. After we are at the beach for a week I will be at my mom's for 3 weeks and I am SO excited for that! Hadley's birthday and her party will be coming up, so there is a lot of excitement going on this month. Wish me luck guys!
