this little peanut here--haley rose? how could you ever get mad at that face? but i tell ya the little one has been mighty vocal lately.and non-stop talking. i mean non-stop. even other people comment on it! i think i may be getting a mini-brie on my hands! here are a few of her latest doings/sayings.

so we have been at pinetop for a week. i just got home yesterday. i went to put her to bed the other night and taylor had been on the top bunk drawing and reading. so i had to clean up all her stuff to let haley lay down and sleep there. then haley proceeds to tell me that "taylor has been eating skittles and drinking soda at night. but don't tell her that i said it cuz she'll get soooo mad at me. just tell her you knowed it yourself." ha

then one night i sat all the kids down to eat dinner. i asked who wanted to say the blessing on the food. both carson and haley said they would. i told carson she could say it. at which point haley starts in (this had been going on all day) with the whining and loud voice that she wants to say it. finally carson gives in and says that haley can say the prayer. haley then lifts her head up and orders me to help her say it. so while i am telling her to say thanks for the food and all i tell haley to ask God to help us to not be cranky. uttter silence. i finally open my eyes to peek at her and she was defiantly looking at me with extreme dislike in her eyes. then i repeated to her to say help us not to be cranky again. at which point she lets out this big disgruntled hmmph. then she says it. it was all i could do not to laugh. oh right, i did laugh. at which point she then told me to stop laughing.

so yesterday i came home with taylor and carson. dave wanted someone to stay with him and haley and anna said they would. dave told them he would get them a toy and take them to the movies and the go-carts. we ate lunch together and then i kissed them all goodbye and me and the big girls took off for home. not a half-hour later i get a phone call from dave asking me what should he do--the girls had been in the bathroom at lowe's for 10 minutes and hadn't come out. um, stick your head in the door and call their names.

well i get a call another half-hour later from dave saying "you knew what you were doing by leaving the little ones didn't you?" who me? wha happened? he then proceeds to tell me that the reason they took so long in the bathroom was that haley had to poop and anna had to help wipe her and there wasn't any toilet paper. then after that crisis was solved and they washed their hands there wasn't any paper towels. then when they were done there haley informed her daddy that she couldn't sit in the theatre seat at the movie or she would get swallowed up. and of course she talks--ALL THE TIME! this is when he asked me if i knew what i was doing.

anyway--you can't really get mad or irritated at that face. it's almost impossible. and in less than a month she will be a kindergartener. you know what that means? time for a grandbaby...L

Those are the cutest stories I have ever heard. I just love the poop story, that brings back a lot of good memories. So you think Haley is a mini-Brie...most definitely, I still get cranky and disgruntled. I miss them!

I LOVE your logic, Lisa! One in kindergarten means "somebody" (cough, cough, Brie, cough, cough) should give you a baby to play with!
♥ you!

Sweet Haley. How can you post that picture of her and try to tell us she is capable of sassiness?

Jeff said...

A mini Brie? Does Brianne talk much?

Dust and Maddy said...

Keep pressuring Brie, I totally want to see you as a Grandma!
