Oh, sweet Hadley

My sweet girl, you are 27 months old. How did we get here so fast?

You are the most precious thing I could have ever asked for and I love you so much that I hope one day you have a little one that blesses you as much as you bless me.
Don't get me wrong. You aren't always so sweet. But, the sweet definitely outweighs the mean.
Terrible 2's is a real thing. You seem to be more whiney than usual when you don't get your way. You are always saying "c'mon mommy" over and over and over.  I am truly amazed at how smart you are. Sure, you don't know your ABC's yet, but you sure seem to know every word in existence and show that off constantly. You make me so proud. I was so worried that you wouldn't learn as much being only around me all the time, but you have definitely surprised me little girl.

So, for some stats. I don't know really know. If I had to guess you are 24ish lbs and 34 inches tall? I really have no idea. You are wearing 2t clothes and size 5 shoes. Size 4 diapers. Yes, you are still in diapers. We are really going to tackle that head on when we get back from Christmas in TN.

Likes: cuddling on the couch watching Little Einsteins or Mickey Mouse. Bella, her stuffed kitty. Obsessed with fruit snacks. Animals...really, this kid loves everything.

Dislikes: Being told no, or just not getting her way as usual.

Words: Like I said, too many to count. I feel like she knows every word.

Adam would kill me if he knew this picture was here, but it just melts my heart.

What else? Giving Hadley a sibling has been strong on my mind lately and it's something I really yearn for, but it would still be awhile before Adam even agreed to it. I have so many worries though for Hadley. I worry she won't have enough time and I have other selfish reasons why I'm scared to have another baby. I really enjoy how independent Hadley is and that she loves to lay around with me and cuddle. If I have another we probably won't have that cuddle time any more, and I can't focus all my time on just her. I just don't understand the balance I guess. Anybody else feel this way? Opinions on second children and welcome.


  1. I'm really worried about not being able to spend as much time with Donovan. I'm afraid he won't feel as loved or special when #2 arrives. But everyone, everyone says the heart just expands when #2 arrives. I was the older child and while of course there's always sibling rivalry and jealousy, I never felt like I was unimportant in my family. And I love my sister!

  2. It's not just that. I really enjoy our time together and know we won't have all the time to do what we want together. And I really like my sleep and how easy things are now. Ha!
