4 Months

I can't believe it's been 4 months since Hailey was born!

Everyone always says Hailey looks so little (after they say how much she looks just like her dad) and then they always seem to ask if she's growing. Good news - she IS growing just fine.

Our Hailey is a petite little girl - that's just the way she is.

Here are her 4 month stats as of yesterday:
11lbs 9oz (25%)
23.5" long (40%)

These days you can find Hailey chowing down on her hands...and drooling all over the place.

Hailey has wild hair! After a bath its real fluffy. It seems to grow very straight and it tends to grow forward. We generally give her a comb over, though getting it to lye flat is a challenge as we have to continue brushing it until it's dry (or else it goes wild). She has a cowlick which makes the back portion of hair stick up. Pete suggested last night that maybe we should change where we part her hair so she doesn't have such a comb over...but upon inspecting and evaluating the situation, he decided that we were doing the best we could with the situation at hand. You bald headed baby owners are lucky - just grab the kid and go! No fussing over hair...that must be nice.

Hailey started squealing the other day. I think she just does it for fun...it's a bit loud and obnoxious.

She loves to stand in the corner of the couch. She's pretty good at it too!

I randomly find Hailey boogers on my arms throughout the day - a true sign of motherhood...

I stopped in at Molbaks yesterday - I'd never been. Since I don't have many flower beds here at our new house, I skipped buying live flowers...and instead...bought these totally ridiculous huge fake daisies for Hailey's room. I got 50% off because I mentioned that a leaf was torn and the gal at first said 20% off...and then went all the way down to 50% when I stood there thinking about it a bit more (and I can't pass up a good deal...so I caved). I also bought some pretty wrapping paper and I intend to cut some of it out and frame them with some frames I have lying around. I figured that's a cheap way to get some wall art...right? I'm hoping this will add a little something more to Hailey's room. I never felt like I quite finished decorating her room...so maybe these little touches will help me feel like it's a bit more done.

Now here's a note from Hailey (she likes trying to type):
