A Whole New Bear

Haley has been a wee bit high maintenance pretty much since the day she was born.  She has her own agenda, and most days I am just here to interrupt that, causing major screaming and wailing.  The bottom line is that she uses her adorably cute smile to try to get away with anything.
True joy

All of her challenges were gone for one night on our recent get-away to New Mexico.  Bryon's parents bravely volunteered to keep Shelby overnight while we stayed in Santa Fe.  It dawned on me that it was the first time Haley Bear had been an "only" child.  She ate it up!

Look, Ma, just one car seat!
She was happy to follow my commands and obey.  She didn't try to run away while I changed her diapers and clothes.  She sat still in the restaurants and ate her meals like a champ.  I think she went a whole 24 hours without one classic meltdown.
Who is this kid that sits so still?

The bottom line is Shelby needs to start watching her back.  Haley's new agenda might just be to get rid of her big sister!

*L* That's too cute. My son is the king of meltdowns...and he's an only child. But if he's anywhere else, NO ONE can believe that he can be so drama-full. I'm glad that she got her day though. :) She's adorable.
