I think Hailey has hit the terrible two's (but in her case the terrible one's!) She is still my sweet little girl but now with a major attiutude!

She has started walking really good now so she never likes to be held. She can walk from one end of the room to another without stopping and when she falls down she stands herself right back up. So now she thinks she can do anything she wants, her new favorite is climbing the stair. She can get all the way to the top in about 10 seconds. We have a gate at the bottom but because of the way our stairs are it doesn't stay up too well and she has learned how to crawl up on it knock it down and climb up the stairs, she is such a monkey!

She has also started throwing tantrums! If she doesn't get what she wants she throws herself back, no matter where she is, thankfully i've always been there to catch her. Our biggest fight lately has been kepping her in her car seat. We buckle her in the right way and she starts by putting her arms through the straps, then her legs and then turns herself around and stands up. We have tried everything to keep her in there. I guess we'll have to think of something else. She is way to smart for her age! (i think i may have trouble with this one!)

Caiden has been acting a little different also. He has always been such a good big brother and still is but he has started acting jealous and has been acting out for attention. I think it may have to do with Hailey's first birthday and all the attention being on her but lately he takes her toys, holds her down when she is trying to walk or crawl and has been so emotional. He crys about everything. I think that Brad and I just need to spend more one on one time with him maybe let grandma watch Hailey more and do things with just caiden. Since she has been born we have done that only 3 times! Were going to try this and hopefully that will give him what he needs. We hate seeing him sad or feeling like something is wrong with him.

Well were off to the park (our daily visit) but here are some pictures of me and the kids yesterday playing
