We love you Hatley Elizabeth, and couldn't be prouder to be your parents! You are such a joy in our life and our life would not be the same without you! I love your giggles, I love your smiles... We love you.
Thanks for making such a dramatic entrance into our lives, we should have know from the beginning there would be drama with you =) But you are Ooohhhhh so worth the drama!

We slept from 10am until 4 pm... got up showered, did my hair, watched some TV, went grocery shopping in order to have some food at the hospital to snack on; that's if she ever came. Picked up some Pizza. Watched some more TV. went to bed about 10 pm...

We head to the hospital where they admit me and hook me up to a fetal monitor and heart rate monitor... Mark and I watch Chuck Norris and Law and order inbetween contractions. They finally make me get up and walk around... for a good 3 or so hours.. finally I crawl back in bed... 3pm rolls around and my dear friend Jen brings me a delicious Chocolate Milk Shake... so good I wouldn't share it with Mark. More TV, sleeping, walking... even some card playing. 7pm Rolls around they decide to try some pitocin... they said hopefully it will speed things up and let me get some rest too... I slept for a good 3 hours or so... Called families, gave them an update, talked to mom... slept some more... contractions begin to slow down....

Last November Mark, myself and our sweet girl went to visit Marks sister Julie, her husband Rob, and sweet cousin Mya.
Hatley is almost a year old (9 days to go!) and it is so sweet for me to be able to look back and watch this movie. Hatley still looks the same in this movie, however, there is something missing.... OH YAH! Her MOVING! She is a sweet little girl, but MOVES constantly! not like this movie =).
Today she discovered that it is okay to stand all by herself... without holding anything.... will she walk before her first birthday? We will see... but mama is just fine the way that she is...Enjoy our sweet Hatley video, and enjoy the loveable giggles!
