I wrapped up 2013 in my last post.
But that still leaves the last 6 - ish months to catch up on too.
Here was our winter months:
|This is Hadley and, my niece, Tatum. Tatum got into a horse riding accident at the beginning of the year. Literally like the first day or two of January. She injured her thumb pretty severely. This was a couple days after it happened. We (me and my SIL Launi - Tatum's mom) changed the bandaging on her thumb for the first time. Not the first time since the accident, but the first time a doctor hadn't done it. It was a rough 20 or so minutes trying to figure it all out and do it correctly - without inflicting more pain. After it was all said and done, Tatum had her pain medicine and was ready for bed. Hadley thought she needed to get in bed to comfort her. You can see in poor Tatum's eyes how out of it she was. I was so proud of her and how brave she was during this whole process. Since then she has begun riding again more regularly. She was really scared at first, but she quickly is overcoming her fear for her love of riding horses.|
|Hadley has become quite the little reader. She really loves being read to, but also loves reading quietly to herself. Neither Lee nor I are readers. We try to encourage her to do it as much as possible. I've read more since having a two year old than I have in my whole life.|
|Hadley "upgraded" to a big girl bed! She loves it.|
|Over Spring Break, Hadley had her first big girl sleep over at her Aunt Cindy's house. Cindy invited over Hadley, her cousin Brylie, and their friend Rachel. She thought she was big stuff.|
First play in snow.
Big girl bed.
Big girl sleep over.
...No wonder she thinks she is 13!
