YAY FOR HALLE! (AND RANDOM OTHER LITTLE THINGS!)

THIS PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HAVE MARKED A HUGE "JOB WELL DONE", IN MY BOOK. HALLE IS FINALLY WALKING. IT HAS TAKEN HER QUITE AWHILE. SHE WAS VERY CONTENT JUST CRAWLING AND SHE WOULD WALK IF SHE COULD HAVE ONE LITTLE FINGER ON SOMETHING FOR SECURITY BUT THE MINUTE SHE LET GO, BOOM! DOWN SHE WENT. IT HAS BEEN SO FUN WATCHING HER OVERCOME THIS OBSTACLE AND TEACH HERSELF THAT SHE CAN DO IT. ALSO, IT IS AMAZING WATCHING HER LEARN THAT SHE CAN HAVE FAITH IN HERSELF AND TEACH HERSELF HOW TO DO THINGS. SHE IS WALKING PRETTY GOOD BUT IS STILL WOBBLY AND INSECURE SOMETIMES...BUT THAT WILL TAKE TIME. WE ARE SO PROUD OF HER AND HAPPY TO WATCH HER PROGRESS! WE LOVE YOU HALLE GIRL!!

NOT THE BEST PICTURE, YOU DON'T GET THE GIST OF HER WALKING BUT, THIS IS WHAT I CAN SHOW YA FOR NOW! YAY! YOU GO HALLE GIRL!

ALSO, YESTERDAY HALLE AND I WENT WITH MY SIS, NIKI AND HER SON TREVOR TO IDAHO FALLS. WE HAD A GREAT TIME WITH THEM. WE WENT AND FOUND ME A NEW KITCHEN TABLE (I WILL TAKE PIX OF IT ONCE I GET IT!), THEN WE SHOPPED, ATE LUNCH, GOT THE KIDS A MILKSHAKE, AND JUST TALKED WHILE THE KIDS PLAYED. THEY DID SO GOOD IN THE CAR AND SHOPPING. IT HELPS, THAT THEY LOVE PLAYING TOGETHER ALSO-THAT MAKES IT MUCH EASIER FOR NIKI AND I TO HANGOUT TOO. THANKS FOR COMING TO PLAY, WE HAD A VERY FUN TIME WITH YOU!

HERE IS HALLE GIRL WAITING FOR AUNT NIKI TO GIVE HER SOME MILK SHAKE-SHE LOVES GOING TO IDAHO FALLS SHOPPING!

THIS IS COUSIN TREVY WHOM WE ADORE! HALLE AND HIM HAVE BECOME VERY CLOSE SINCE HE MOVED HERE IN OCTOBER. THEY LOVE SEEING EACH OTHER AND WATCHING HIM DO THINGS (SINCE HE IS 6 MONTHS OLDER THAN HER) MOTIVATES HER TO DO/LEARN THINGS. CUTE PICTURE TREVY! THANKS FOR COMING TO PLAY!

AND, LAST BUT NO LEAST, I HAD TO ADD THIS PICTURE. HALLE WOULD NOT STAND STILL TODAY BEFORE CHURCH SO I COULD GET A PICTURE OF HER IN HER NEW DRESS FROM GRMA BERNT BUT I DID GET THIS CHEESY GRIN AND I COULDN'T RESIST! THE DRESS WAS ADORABLE AND NOTICE: 2 PIGGY TAILS-YAY! FOR MORE HAIR! ALSO, I HAVE DISCOVERED AT CHURCH, HALLE HAS ANTS IN HER PANTS, SHE NEVER QUITS MOVING (NOR DOES ANYONE ELSE HER AGE-SO IT'S NOT JUST HER!) BUT THAT DOES MAKE GOING TO SACRAMENT QUITE A CHORE FOR JARED AND I SOMETIMES, HOWEVER, WE WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING!

LOOK AT THAT CHEESER-I JUST WANT TO HUG HER AND KISS HER TO PIECES! LOVE YOU HALLE GIRL!

IT IS AMAZING HOW FAST THEY GROW UP. HALLE IS THE CENTER OF OUR LITTLE UNIVERSE. SHE GIVES HUGS AND KISSES, PUTS HER HAND ON HER HEAD FOR" I'M CONFUSED", EATS, DRINKS, DANCES, AND MAKES US LAUGH UNCONTROLLABLY. SHE IS SAYING SOME WORDS LIKE DADA, AND DOGGIE, AND AN OCCASIONAL DIFFERENT ACTUAL WORD. WE ARE SAD TO SEE HER WALKING-THIS MEANS SHE IS GROWING UP, BUT HAPPY TO KNOW SHE IS MOTIVATED AND CAN TEACH HERSELF NEW THINGS. THE BIGGEST THING I BELIEVE FOR HER THROUGHOUT THE REST OF HER LIFE, IS BEING SURE OF HERSELF AND BELIEVING IN HERSELF, AND SHE IS SHOWING US NOW AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE, SHE IS! WE LOVE OUR LITTLE CUBBY AND SHE MEANS THE WORLD TO US! CONGRATS ON YOUR GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR, AND ON THE MANY MORE YOU WILL HAVE! LOVE, MOM

I miss you guys already and it has only been like a week. Hallie is so cute. Thanks for always being such a good host for all the "sled team" parties. We sure love them!

Way to go Halle! It took Hayden almost 17 months to learn to walk. Halle looks great, mommyhood just gets better and better!

Angela said...

Congratulations Halle! I can't believe we never got her and Lily together this last visit. I guess I am just to selfish to get alone time with Mike. Halle is so so sweet, we just love her.
