Fun on the Farm

Hailey returned to day care after missing two days and had a fabulous
time. When we go to pick up Hailey, she is normally laughing, playing,
or having a fun time on the floor. She will usually start crying like
we are miserable parents for leaving her at day care when she notices
our arrival. The teachers always say that she is a joy to be around
and never acts like that when we are away.

Autumn gave Hailey one of her toys a while back. It is a green
tractor/truck looking thing. If you open the compartment in the rear
there is a farmer, his wife, and a horse to play with. On the top
there is a steering wheel and some farm animal buttons. If you press
on the buttons the toy will sing “Old Mac Donald Had a Farm.” Hailey
has been enjoying playing with this toy. Mostly, I think she enjoys
pushing the buttons. I enjoy this toy because it keeps Hailey’s hands
off the remote control.

Brianna has taught Hailey to hold onto the back of the toy and use it
to steady her while she stands. She will then slowly walk forward
pushing the toy with her. Her first standing steps have been had with
this toy.
