"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Getting To Know Her

Today we got back from dropping Ethan off at school, and Hailey wanted her picture taken with the pumpkins and her new elephant. I can't get enough of this kid.

She has almost stopped taking naps, which is about six months earlier than Ethan stopped. When we get home from taking Ethan, Lauren goes down for a nap and then I get two uninterupted hours with just Hailey. It's really been fun getting to know her on a more individual level.

I've always known she had a great personality, but lately she has become my friend. I love playing Barbies, playing house, coloring, and doing fun projects with her. Even though I usually have chores of some kind that need my attention during that time, I love having her by my side during those two hours. It's just the two of us and it's a lot of fun.

It's nice to have some 1 on 1 time with kids. Trevor likes the time Katelyn is at school.

I'm sure it can be hard to get one on one time when you have 3 kids, so that's nice that you have those couple of hours with her. She is adorable.
BTW, I love carmel apples. Yummy!
