Hailey finally started playing with her toys today. It was so fun to see her. When I first put her on the table with them she just sort of looked at the toys like she didn't really know what to do with them. But, then she warmed up to them and picked one up. She didn't hold onto it for too long, but at least she showed some interest in them today! I bet she'll be playing with them in no time and soon we'll be after her to pick them up and put them away. :) Sometimes it's so hard to remember to enjoy each moment and not spend our time "wishing" our life away. I know that everyone says that I should appreciate this time of life and not keep pushing her to grow up too fast, but it's hard to not want her to roll over and then crawl and then talk!! I can't believe how much more "fun" she is to have around now that she smiles, coos, and responds to our voices. I don't think there's anything sweeter than having your baby smile up at you or hear your voice and start "talking" back. And, it's so fun to think about how much fun she'll be when she can actually reach for us or crawl around by us or even walk and talk to us.
We got Hailey's 3 month photos taken this afternoon- thanks Sheila for coming over and taking them!! I am so excited to see how they turn out. We took a few of just her toes with our wedding rings on. I can't wait to see them. Sheila is such a talented photographer and she really has some fun ideas of new things to try! (Plus, she's super willing to work at getting Hailey to giggle and laugh)
