Let's get a move on!

So I have really determined that Hayleigh has zero patience for "baby stuff". The kid started out at the weight of a toddler (Well, not really but it felt that way to me at 9lbs, 12oz!) It already appears that she is probably going to get a bottom tooth, at the ripe age of 3 MONTHS, and she would rather just skip crawling and go straight to walking with the rate of speed she kicks those rather long legs of hers. to help strengthen those muscles of hers, I put her on her stomach on the floor for short spans of time so that she can get some exercise. I hate to say that I sit there and giggle but I can't help myself. Every time this little girl pushes up to lift her head, she makes a loud grunting sound or bellows happily. It is quite a production. Even Cooper comes over to check out what she is up to down there. Then I roll her over on her back and we practice rolling onto our side, though she does do that sporadically but with much propelling of the legs. She is definitely on the move though. I will lay her in her crib and and when I look at the montitor periodically throughout the night, she has turned sideways and usually by the morning, has turned herself 180 degrees and is now head down where her feet once were. It is very apparent that I will get plenty of exercise with Miss Hayleigh when those legs actually let her take off.

Working hard to get that head up



She thought mommy was funny with my camera in her face
