Crayons, Swings, Pigtails, Peas, and Peek a boo

This is what we've been doing the last week or so. Hayes has discovered CRAYONS and absolutely loves to color. We've been doing it every day for a couple of weeks and she loves to play with the crayons and color/stab at the paper. She's working her way through a new coloring book that comes in extremely handy at restaurants these days!! Really it has been the biggest lifesaver since it's the difference in us eating out vs. never eating out. 15 months has become an explosive age for her. She's learning soooo much all of a sudden, understanding words, questions, following simple directions, but truly is QUITE a handful when we're out and about as are most babies her age! But I'd much rather take the challenge of taking her to restaurants, even if it ends up crazy and I can't carry on conversation or take more than 1 bite at a time. It's really worth it to have some girl/adult time during the day! Therefore, crayons are our new best friends. And we especially love any restaurant that gives us crayons while we're there!!

Playing peek a boo. If you ask where is Hayes? she will immediately slap her hands over her face!

We love swinging at the park. I think she could do this all day and then take a nap in the swing!!

Sweet Chris! Having baby #2 at the end of this month. Can't wait to meet little Chambers!!

Pigtails. I CANNOT WAIT until her hair is long enough for these!! We had some beauty shop time Sunday afternoon playing with hair. Not quite long enough yet but maybe by the summer!!

At 15 months she keeps me guessing with foods she will eat. Here she loves peas. It's so surprising all the time. Foods I would think that she would love she will not touch!! But the girl loves green peas, black eyed peas, butterbeans, most fruits and mainly cheese-but she gets this honestly. She had wayyyy to much cheese dip in my tummy!! Her drink of choice is milk by the gallon. She drinks a ton of it at a time.

Lastly, her new favorite hiding spot. She will get under this chair and just sit until you say Where is Hayes? Then she pops out. It's so easy to entertain her!! She will go back and forth through this chair like a tunnel. Oh to be 15 months old, such a fun little age!! I love it!
