A Few of my Favorite Things

Hallieisms Take 6

I know it's only been a few months since I have done a Hallieism's post, but this girl just keeps getting funnier and funnier! These are some of my recent favorites

  • When Hal comes into a room sometimes she will exclaim "Peeky Boo!" 
  • She knows her full name "Hallie Anne Mock" but if you ask her what your name is she will always add Anne to your name.  I am Mommy Anne, Daddy is Daddy Anne, Stella is Stella Anne...and so on!
  • Recently Hallie started getting remotes, phones and even her baby monitor and tapping on them saying "Testing, 123!" I laughed so hard the first time I heard her do it! I have no idea where she picked it up
  • She officially told her first fib! The Velcro on her jelly shoes broke and I asked her how it happened and she told me "Big Jet broke my Jelly shoes!" (Big Jet is the bad guy on Little Einsteins)  She also played her first trick.  She knocked on the door and told us "Somebody's here!" 
  • She is becoming very sympathetic.  If I get hurt she tells me "I kiss it" or "I get you tissue" 
  • Hallie LOVES Disney princesses! She recently started asking me to tie her blankets around her waist like a skirt and she will exclaim "I a Pincess!" 
  • This one has a bit of a back story.  Before Hallie came along, Christopher taught our dog Stella to bark when he said "Wanna fight?!" So we were having lunch with our playgroup at a local playground and the birds were crazy.  They kept trying to steal our food and eventually one of them nabbed a sandwich right out of Hal's hand. My sweet little teeny girl got so mad that she screamed at the bird, "Hey! Wanna Fight!" (FACEPALM!) 
  • One of our favorite books is Pete the Cat: I love my white shoes.  There is a part where they say "Goodness no!" So now Hallie likes to say "Oh goodness no!" and it's seriously the cutest thing I have ever heard!
  • When she wants you to open a marker she will ask you to "break it" 
  • We were in the grocery store and she was sitting in the cart.  As soon as I started moving it down the aisles she started yelling "Hallie to the Rescue!" 
  • If she can't reach something she says she needs a "Handy Helper" 
  • When we were packing up to move, Hallie found a teeny tiny bat that used to be her Daddy's when he was little.  She started running around hitting boxes telling us "This is called I smack it!" She is sooo her Daddy's girl!
  • As you know Hallie has been taking ballet class.  One of the steps is called an Attitude. It's basically a Arabesque with a bent leg.  One day Hallie was acting up and Christopher told her to change her attitude.  Without skipping a beat, she lifted her leg perfectly into Attitude position! That's my girl! 
  • When she is waiting for someone she will tell you they are "Coming right up!" Like when Tia Joyce was coming over she would say "Momma, Tia Joyce is coming right up!" 
  • We were in the driveway and Hallie saw a bug and she said "Aww a little bug! I love it soooo much, I gonna step on him!" 
  • Sometimes if she is trying to figure something out she will say "Oops this is tricky!" 
  • She was sitting in Daddy's lap and she leaned back on him and exclaimed "Ahh nice chair!" 
  • She keeps INSISTING I have a baby in my belly (I DEFINITELY DO NOT!) but she even told my doctor "Mommy has my baby sister in her belly, her name is Cindy-rella!" She also suggested that name as well as Jasmine to Christopher's cousin who had a baby boy recently 
  • She didn't want to finish her dinner so she put some on a fork and said "Say Ah!" and shoved it into my mouth! 
  • She was eating breakfast at the big table and she put her dolly baby June in the highchair and told my Father in Law "Pop, Baby June is my child!" Where does she get this stuff!?
  • Right before her birthday she started telling everyone "I'm gonna be 2 you know!" She would also invite EVERYONE she came across to her birthday party! And any piece of mail we got said "Hallie Anne, Come to Hallie's Birthday Party! The end!" 
  • Christopher asked Hallie to try and go potty and she tried for 2 seconds and then yelled "IT IS NOT WORKING!" 
She is just getting so big and hilarious! This age is just the best! I love it!

2 years of Hallie Anne

Oh baby girl! You are my baby girl who is not so much a baby anymore.  Though you are still teeny tiny, you remind me all the time that you are in fact a big girl! Even though I miss when you used to sleep on my chest, and give my gummy toothless smiles, each day with you is more fun than the last. Every day you say and learn new things! Today for example you told me "God Bless you Mommy" and it made me so proud of the big girl you are becoming!

Here is all about you at 2 years old sweet pea:

  • Age- 2  years
  • Weight- We fell off the charts again, we are only 21 lbs
  • Length- 33 inches tall!! So tall like her daddy! 45th percentile!
  • Size- First of all: NO MORE DIAPERS! Girlfriend is potty trained during the day and wears a pull up at night! Pants, PJs and Skirts- 12 month and Shirts and dresses- 18 months
  • Eyes- Most of the time they look green, but they are still big and beautiful!
  • Hair- Light brown and super long!
  • Sleeping- 1 nap (1 1/2 to 2 hours) and 11 hours at night.
  • Favorite Foods-  Burritos, fruit, avocado, sweets and carbs! 
  • Milestones-  Counting to 10, Potty trained, identify colors and shapes
  • Memorable outings and events- Lots of birthday and holiday parties, photo shoots, family beach trip, moving to Pop's house, and arena football.
  • Favorite toys/activities-  Stuffed animals (Especially my puppy!) Baby June, Coloring and Arts and Crafts, Play Kitchen, Dr. Kit, Princess Castle, and Dress up Minnie and Daisy
  • Words/sounds- The kid loves to talk! She is speaking in like 8 word sentences! Some of my favorites: (Daddy, I need new shoes, card please? I go outside, see bunnies hopping in grass? That's very sweet of you! When I was little, I always have Daddy) 
  • Nicknames- H, Hal, Sweet pea, peanut and bean
  • Funny moments- Oh goodness there are just too many! Right now I am still cracking up over this moment:
  • Looking forward to- Decorating her new room and playroom when we buy a new house, the holidays, and watching how much she learns and grows this year!
Hallie Anne, you are the light of my life! You make every day so much better! I can't get over how smart you are! You comprehend more than I could have imagined for any 2 year old! You are also so sweet and thoughtful! I love you more than I could ever express! 
Xoxo, Mommy

Oh yes, she's definitely 2

So I have a bunch of photos and updates on Hallie now that she is 2 and now that she has had her 2nd Birthday Party! But of course those are going to be much longer in depth posts and after such a crazy weekend, I figured these photos from our car ride home from Hallie's birthday party would suffice and be plenty of proof that, Oh yes, she's definitely 2! This is what I found when I opened the car door to get Hallie out:
 Somehow she found my makeup bag on top of her bag of presents.  She also somehow managed to use a color of lipstick that I use for Halloween costumes to paint her face red!
 I couldn't help laughing when I saw her! She is going to keep us on our toes this year for sure!!!

This face brightened our night for sure! Hope it does the same for your Monday!

Hallie's Birthday- How we celebrated!

Hallie had such a fun birthday!!! We of course are having her birthday party over the weekend, but I wanted to make sure her actual birthday was special too!

She woke up to a balloon scavenger hunt 

 Which led her to a special birthday breakfast and presents!

 She LOVED her Minnie dolly and special birthday outfit!

 After we were all dressed and ready to go, we hopped in the car to see Finding Dory
 Hallie really loved sitting in her own chair and eating popcorn.  She did really well, though got sleepy toward the end and fell asleep!
 After the movie we went to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch!
 All in all, I think my 2 year old little bean had a great Birthday!!

Birthday Interview

Over the next few days...or maybe week...I am going to be flooding you with pictures of my cute bean because she just turned two and I am feeling nostalgic!
We had a great birthday celebration yesterday which I of course can't wait to fill you in on, but today I just had to share this adorable Birthday interview I got with her! It of course consists of a lot of wiggling and off topic chit chat, because that's what toddlers do best, but I want to remember her exactly the way she is at this very moment because she has already grown up way too fast!

Freshly Picked Saltwater and Sand

This Wednesday Freshly Picked is releasing 2 new gorgeous pairs of two toned moccasins! Salt Water and Sand and Sunshine and Sand! I was so thrilled when they reached out to us about testing out the Saltwater and Sand moccasins because Saltwater Taffy has always been our very favorite Freshly Picked color! And my friends, the people at Freshly Picked have done it again! The combination of Saltwater Taffy and sand is so gorgeous it gives me all the heart eyes!!!
I love that they are neutral enough to match almost anything, but with a fun adorable pop of color on the bottom! They are made with the same amazing quality leather that we have come to love from Freshly Picked!
So today I am sharing with you some of the first exclusive photos of this precious combination! 

See what I mean about the heart eye emojis? Are you as smitten with them as we are? This release is going to be exciting friends! Make sure you are following Freshly Picked on Instagram and Facebook for more photos and information on this release!
Happy Monday!
Kelly and Hallie
