Our Princess is 2!

How can it be that this sweet little angel …


is now this sweet not-so-little angel?


The last 2 years have flown by so quickly. Hadley, you have grown so much since we welcomed you into this world Thursday, January 31, 2008 @ 11:29pm. You have an amazing vocabulary. I can’t even begin to count how many words you can say now. Six months ago you had over 130 words and now I’m sure it’s at least double. Anything that is said, you will repeat! You have been attending school 2 days a week at First Baptist New Orleans Early Learning Center since August 2009. While there, you’ve learned different animal names, what sounds they make, shapes, colors, how to count to 20 (some #s are a bit questionable) and sing your ABCs. You hated being dropped off for the first 6 months or so, but now you seem to be okay with me leaving you for a few hours. Good thing too, because we just found out you were accepted to Ursuline Academy’s 2 year old program so your daddy & I have decided to start you there in August. I can’t lie I am concerned about you going to school 5 days a week all day at only 2 1/2, but you are SO smart & I think you will really enjoy it! I’m going to miss you while you’re in school though. You love to climb on anything & everything. Daddy was a little nervous the other night when you were climbing on the bar stool @ Peter’s restaurant. I don’t think we could’ve asked for a sweeter little girl. You truly are so loving. You give the best hugs & kisses & you tell daddy ALL the time “that’s my mommy!” It makes my heart melt. God has truly blessed us with you. We love you VERY much!!!

13 days...

until Miss Hadley turns 2! I can't believe we are already this close to a 2nd birthday.

As you can see, we are having a Minnie Mouse party. I got these invitations from an Etsy store(LittleAmaraDesigns) for $3.oo. She designed them for me & emailed some & printed some out for mailing also. I think they turned out wonderfully. Can't wait to come back and show post pictures of the party!!

Winter Wonderland

Being from South Alabama my whole life & then moving to South Louisiana I have NEVER had any REAL experience with snow. Darrell, Hadley, & I left the day before New Year's Eve to visit some friends in North Carolina. We all decided to rent a chalet on Beech Mountain for the New Year's holiday. On the way, we stopped in Blowing Rock, NC for lunch and some fun in the snow.

It didn't take long for Hadley to get into playing in the snow. She loved it! The one thing she didn't care too much for was her mittens. I guess they were too hard for her to work with.

After we spent a few hours in Blowing Rock, we headed on up the mountain to settle into our chalet. This is where we stayed. Beautiful isn't it?
Little Miss fell asleep before we even left for the day. I guess all the work it took to get dressed just tuckered her out. Doesn't she look just precious???

In case you are thinking, "Why did she post a picture of the dash of the car?" Well, look at the temperature. Yes, that says 6, yes, SIX degrees!!! It had warmed up to 6 degrees by 3 pm.

This is what the floor looked like when she refused to help me pick it up & was made to got to bed early. And by early, I mean before midnight.
She was so funny. Darrell kept saying, "That's my Dorion!" and Hadley would get all pouty & say "No, it's MY Dorion!"
Hadley just loooooves Dorion & Isabel.
