Well, Spring’s arrival appeared on the calendar far sooner than she has shown her head in New England. Thankfully, the snow has disappeared, but the rain and the wind has left us wanting for some nicer weather, to be sure. For a week or so I was just hoping that our ramshackle sump pump set-up didn’t completely fail and leave us with an indoor pool.
What is rushing upon us is the succession of holidays. Only a week apart, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter have created quite a buzz, with all kinds of wardrobe considerations for our young Miss Hadley, as you can see. Considering how much she is growing and how fast, it is a good thing we have so many options, otherwise every photo would have a bit more of a sausage feel. Since she has yet to get a handle on the crawling, she has gotten round in all the right places, our little doughy one.
She is, as you can see, one heck of a hambone. Ali has definitely trained her well. It’s already challenging to get a shot of her without her looking right into the lens with a big grin. She intuitively poses already, as well. However, Ali has begun lamenting that Hadley has recently begun to take on a distinctly Haas male trait of blinking during photos, although I have not been able to confirm this of late.
I must admit that I was a bit of a curmudgeon, imagine that, when my lovely wife walked in the door with little bunny ears, inquiring why we needed them. To which she responded, “You wait and see.” Well, she couldn’t have been more right. I think it was the best $1.00 she has spent in recent weeks. I am not sure that some of these pics would score the same cuteness factor without those fake ears, but I’ll let you be the judge.
