My husband, Allen, and I are high school sweet hearts. We started dating Sep.99'- I kind of followed Allen home one day, and never did leave, is Allen's story. November 02' we were engaged, and on November 22,2003 - we were married. Having been married for 6 years in 2009, marked the 5th year we had been trying to start our family. With the referral of a Fertility Specialist from a friend, our IUI attempts ended up being a complete success despite my doubts. We welcomed our sweet little girl, Hayleigh into the world on June 30,2010 at 6:28am after 37wks and 1 day of gestation. She weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 in long. We found out that we were Baby #2 on April Fool's Day- a complete surprise! Reid Allen was born 11/13/12 3:24am 9lbs 8.2oz 21", after 38wks 5 days. Our 3rd baby, Eva Jane, was born on April 19, 2015 after suffering a pregnancy loss June of 2014. We are currently anxiously awaiting baby #4 due 2 days before Eva's birthday, so we are having Irish Twins! Our family is so blessed and happy to be growing!

Out of the mouth of Hayleigh

So, I figured I had better start writing down what all Hayleigh has been yakking about and saying lately. Some of the things she has said, make me cringe, others make me want to die laughing.

Hayleigh's new phrase she likes to say is, "I'm coming, <insert word or name here>, I'm coming!" I guess she has heard me tell her that I am coming when she is yelling for me that she has managed to pick it up. Some of the funny names/things she has told she is coming to include: Toodles, Missy Dog, Mommy, Mickey, Cheese- yes Cheese, Pizza, and POOP. Some things like Missy Dog, and Toodles, she says that phrase to while we are in the truck driving down the road. The cheese one I laughed last night about. She had requested cheese for the 20th time. Hayleigh could seriously eat it all day long. Well, on the way to the fridge, Hayleigh races around me, hollering, Cheese! I'm coming! Usually if she hears Mickey Mouse Clubhouse coming on, she yells across the house to Mickey that she is coming. The poop one... I about seriously died laughing, or almost went into labor laughing so hard. She found a piece of poop from Missy Dog in the yard. She exclaims, "POOP"! I tell her to leave the poop alone, She yells, "Bye, Bye, POOP!" then a few minutes later, she is telling the poop that she is coming. Ohhh my!

Over the past few days she has told me or Missy, Thank you, and you're welcome! Makes me proud that she has picked up on her manners that I've been trying to infuse into her. She doesn't let Missy miss a meal- in fact, she tries to feed her about 3 times a day. She will bring Missy's bowl to me, yelling "Mommy", over and over again. I have to tell her at least twice a day that Missy has already eaten, and to put the bowl back. She LOVES to help out! When she does get to feed Missy, I have her bring the bowl to me by the garage door, and I will get Missy's food out and pour it into the bowl, and Hayleigh will take it to Missy, telling Missy "Thank You, and You're Welcome!"

Among those funny things, Hayleigh has started developing a concern for others. I dropped the stupid faux drawer onto my foot two weeks ago, and yelled, "ouch". Hayleigh came running up to me, patted my leg, and asked me, "Mommy, are you okay?" Made me want to cry she was so sweet. A few nights ago, I was doing yoga to my pregnancy yoga DVD in the living room. Hayleigh was quite intrigued by this, and tried to participate with me too. When it come time for me to be on my hands and knees, she would come up to me and rub my back, and pat it too. Funny watching her try to do downward dog pose. Besides being concerned with us, she has also started to be concerned with people or things on tv. A girl was crying on a show on Disney Jr we just happened to be watching. Hayleigh went up to the tv, and patted the girl on the tv, asking her, "Are you okay? What's wrong???" Soo sweet! She also yells at characters on tv that look like they are fighting. Captain Hook, on Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Donald Duck on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse are her favorites to yell at to "STOP IT <insert name here>". She will yell a few times to them to stop, and then she is fine.

Hayleigh also takes great care of her Minnie Mouse dolls, and 3 baby dolls she has. The baby dolls are Baby Owen, Baby Abby, and the other one doesn't seem to have a name, but Baby. Baby Owen is her favorite right now, and sleeps in the canopy doll crib next to her bed at night. She has to tuck him in every night, and when waking up in the morning, she gets him out. Such a little Mama already! Abby sleeps and stays in her doll buggy that she came with. Hayleigh does get her out as well, but Abby pretty much stays in her buggy. The baby doll that doesn't have a name, rides around in her shopping cart. He is dressed in a boy's preemie onesie for now. I've been trying to push the boy theme around, so Hayleigh can get used to having a baby boy in the house, when Reid gets here. Reid's swing is even set up in his room- and what is left of her play room for now. She always is putting either Owen or the unnamed baby doll in the swing, and pushes them for a few minutes. A few weeks ago, Hayleigh found her disappearing liquid baby bottle for her dolls, and has been feeding all of them ever since. In the totes that go with her baby doll canopy crib set, I have put some of her old diapers, rattles that are girly, empty lotion and baby powder containers, and some of her old receiving blankets to play with. It is so stinkin cute!

I am planning on making over the garage into a large play area for Hayleigh. I've been searching for some good used carpet to put out there on the floor lately, and I'm planning on moving the rest of her stuff out there that won't fit in her room so she can play without it being strung all over the house. The garage has no entry doors or windows out there, just the big garage door, with the button way out of reach for her. I can keep the door from the house to the garage open for her too, so it is the best thing I could come up with for her. I'll be moving her cars out there, table and chairs, and trampoline out there just as soon as I can get it all ready. I think she will really enjoy it!
