Happy belated Thanksgiving!

Well, this post is 4 days late. Better late than never I say.

Our Thanksgiving was very low key and boring. This is the very first Thanksgiving that I haven't spent with my family and the first that Adam, Hadley and I have all been together. Last year I was home at this time with Hadley while Adam was here. Anyway, we laid around being lazy all day and I didn't even get out of my pjs. I did however get Hadley out of her's.

That was the only picture I took of her. She doesn't smile for pictures much these days. She smiles all the time though. I promise.

So, I made a turkey, dressing, corn, mac and cheese and rolls. It was really good! I was really proud of myself. This was the first Thanksgiving meal I had made and my very first Turkey. It turned out really tender and juicy. I was so worried that it was going to be dry. 

Hadley didn't eat when we did because we time it correctly around her lunch time. But, she did do drive-by tastings and really liked the turkey, which is huge for her since it's a PITA to get her to eat meat. She is so picky about meat. I got her to eat leftovers for a couple of days actually.  I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving!

Counting down the days...

2 weeks.

2 weeks until Hadley and I fly home for a month. I am getting SO excited!!
This will probably be the last time we come home for a year probably. Flying isn't cheap and once she turns 2 I will have to buy her a ticket, and let's face it, we aren't the richest people in the World. So, I am going to try my hardest to enjoy every second that I have with my family. Of course my mom will fly out here to visit between my next trip home, but I will still miss out on seeing my friends and other family. 

Anyway, I am going to see Breaking Dawn tomorrow! By myself. At 10 a.m. I am super cool, huh? Well, that's what you have to do when you live somewhere where your only friend doesn't like Twilight and your husband has to watch the baby. Eh, it will be just fine. :)

Hadley is being difficult lately, which isn't anything new, but I feel like I haven't updated about her in awhile. This kid really tests my limits sometimes, but I am blaming the current nonsense on teething. Hell, I blame every cry/whine on teething. I don't know what else could be wrong with her. I look in her mouth and it's a swollen, white mess. It looks like they could all pop through at once. I'm scared. But yeah, that's whats going on there. Here is a picture as usual.

I don't take pictures a lot anymore, but I am pretty happy that she is still RFing. :)

I am struggling to update my blog here lately. I feel like I have nothing interesting or exciting to talk about. I know that this blog is pretty much for me and that maybe 3 people actually read what I write, but I feel like I have an obligation to update this blog. I really wish that I had started this blog when Hadley was born so I could remember every single thing about her first year of life. I regret not writing down her birth story because Lord knows I can't remember all the details now. 

Anyway, I have been feeling pretty down lately and unhappy with life in general. It kind of drives me crazy how things change just as I really have them figured out. For instance, Hadley was sleeping really well until Daylight Savings Time. Now she thinks it's time to wake up at 5 or 6 and that's just too early for this mama. Her normal wake time was anywhere from 7-8. I would kill to have that back again. 

Another thing that is stressing me out is Hadley's eating habits. She is getting picky and it's stressing me out because she has refused dinner for the last 2 weeks pretty much. I wouldn't worry about this so much if she wasn't so little, but she is and she needs all the calories that she can get. I was so proud of her tonight because she actually ate pretty much all of her dinner. I could of screamed I was so happy. 

One thing I forgot to mention was that Hadley and I will be going home for the whole month of December. I am SO happy and excited to be going home to my family but sad that Adam can't join us. I will be leaving here December 3rd, so my blog may be neglected for awhile. 

Here is a picture I took of Hadley today. It's perfect.

First, I feel like it's been a long time since I have updated. It has only been about a week though. I haven't even checked blogger in about a week and missed all my friends new posts. I kind of feel bad about this. Anyway...

Hadley's 2nd Halloween has come and gone. We picked out a cow costume this year that my step dad was pretty proud of since he owns a dairy farm. She happened to look very cute in it if I do say so myself.

Here we are at Boo at the Zoo.

Her and daddy are best friends.

I ended up taking her "trick or treating" around the apartment complex, which was actually to only about 3 apartments. We pretty much just walked around looking for other trick or treaters and seeing if anybody had any signs on their doors or other things that would give a hint that they were giving out candy. We didn't want to just knock on everybody's door and annoy them. So I ended up with a little bit of candy, nothing real good. I am hoping the Halloween candy at Walmart goes on sale for more than 50% off.
