Playing Mommy


This last weekend was such a blast!!! I got to play mommy for 2 days with my wonderful little niece Hailee! Her mommy Laurie and Grandma Sue were running the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon that weekend and I jumped on the oppertunity to have the little one for a few days! By the way congrats to them for that accomplishment, Laurie who just had a baby 6 months ago, and My Mother In Law that is in such better shape than half the people I know, including myself! They are amazing!
Kip, Hailee, and I had such a blast!!! Kipper is so good with little Hailee, she really loves her Uncle, and for me, I was stoked to be able to play "stay at home mommy" for a few days. I got to have the weekend off, I made dinner 2 nights in a row, and got some house cleaning done, it felt like a dream! Little Hailee is such a joy to have around, she is so happy and easy going. I was a little nervous about how I would handle a 6 month old over night, but to my suprise it was not as hard as I had anticipated!
Hailee is seriously one cool little kiddo, she is animated and a total crack up but is so not High Mantinence (well most of the time anyway), she seriously is so good with just going with the flow of things, she is great at entertaining herself, she is WAY strong and she has no fear of our Echo!!! Kip and I love our little niece and had such a blast spending the weekend with her. I did not want to give her back but her mommy insisted! I eventually gave in!
O' and I was so proud of this, she got so attached to me during the weekend that when someone else was holding her and she could no longer see me she would start to cry until she could see me again. It made me feel so special and loved!
Here are some fun pics from the weekend.

I wish you lived by me so I could leave my kids with you for the weekend. They would love to hang out with you and yes, they would even love the dog (well, Kalin would!). I won't let them have a dog.

The pictures are cute and you're a super Aunt!
