Introducing Victoria Paige!

I haven't gotten around to writing this post, but I have been meaning to for a LONG time... since December 11 to be exact!

On December 11, 2011 some of our very best friends Landon and Deidra had their first baby... a little girl named Victoria Paige... we've been calling her VP since before she was born!

We went to visit the newest addition to Landon and Deidra's family the day after she was born, I didn't get any pictures that night (oopsie!), but we went to visit yesterday! They live over an hour away, so we don't get to see them as much as we would like =(

Anyway, here are some pictures from our visit!

Look at that gorgeous little smile! She's such a good baby too!

Hailey and Molly


Beautiful Miss VP

Hailey LOVES Molly and Molly loves that Hailey drops a lot of snacks!

Daddy and his princess

Hailey had some static electricity going on!

Hailey had a blast! I couldn't get a pic of Dee and her little princess w/o Hailey photo-bombing LOL

She loved playing outside!

Auntie Dee chased her around the backyard!

We had an AWESOME visit... it was long over due! I hate that some of my best friends live so far from me... some even further than the Mahoney's =(

Photo Dump!

A photo dump is EXACTLY what it sounds like! Since I am in a hurry, I am just going to dump a bunch of pics here for you to check out!

Someone pulled a hit and run on my car... at work... people are such jerks these days! They hit the front AND back... really??

Here are just a few randoms

On this day we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house so daddy could help move around a big pile of gravel... so Hailey and I played w/ Grandma and got to see COWS!

Our baby girl is 15 months old, WHAT?!?!?!

I don't now how it hapened, but yesterday was Hailey's 15 month "birthday". I am beside myself... completely in shock as to how fast time flies by with a child.

Here's our beautiful girl!

She turned 15 months yesterday, however her 15 month appointment isn't until Feb 20... so I don't have any official stats for you!

I am not good at naming off all of the little things she does at this age, but Miss Hailey is progressing right along!

She's working on eating with her untensils
Fitting shapes into the right holes in her toys
Getting much better about communicating what she wants... she's always asking mommy to read her books, which I LOVE!
She's got like a million teeth... she hates it when I try to brush them, she likes to do it and everything else herself, she's VERY independant to say the least
Her newest most favorite words are "me", "mine" and "no" LOL
She likes to walk to and from the car (at home and daycare) by herself!

She's really doing so many things, I can't even list them all here! I do have to say she HATES it when you stop her in her tracks to change her diaper... and she's not afraid to let us know! HAHA!

I mention how well Hailey is learning to communicate, last night Hailey was standing in front of me as I sat in the chair in the living room. She looked at me and said "Nigh, nigh" and laid her head on her blanket in my lap. I asked "You want to go see your fishies" meaning her projector that plays fishies swimming around that she falls asleep to. She walked over to the baby gate and shook it because it was closed... I opened it for her and she walked into her room, looked at the ceiling for the fishies, I turned them and the music on and she walked to her crib and put her arms up to it to let me know she wanted in. I gave her kisses, laid her in bed and left the room. She passed right now! How's that for communication! I was and still am beside myself. I didn't expect that. I guess she was tired.

I went to check on her after my shower and found this...
Out like a light!

Our little poser! So sweet and innocent here, huh? HAHA She has a spicy side!

Here she is walking to daycare all by herself like a big girl! She looks so grown up here to me!

She got a hold of daddy's phone, she LOVES the "baby" on the screen, that is her!

New Years Eve!

Ok, so NYE was a few weeks ago... Are you surprised that I am just getting around to blogging about it? Better late than never is my new motto =)

New Years Eve was spent at my aunts house this year! Normally we are camping with friends, so it's been a VERY long time since we have spent NYE with my family.

We had a BLAST! The kids partied together, we ate and drank, stayed up til midnight, laughed so much, had hangovers the next day! Good times all around!

Foster's New Year's attire

Trying to snag my girl real quick for a picture, she's too busy for mommy already!

Beautiful Megan

There were headstands!

Hailey playing w/ her cousin!

Foster was SO excited!

Doing "laps"

Bummed that this is a horrible pic of me, but Craig looks good and its the only pic of the two of us from that night!

Is that a big gulp? Jeeze. Thanks Craig!

Party animal!

We rung in the new year at midnight and were in bed by about 1230, at the latest! LOL We can't party like we used to, but we still partied!
