Hailey's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, but I never got around to getting anything up on the blog about it. She received a pretty cross necklace from my parents. However, this was her 8th birthday, so she had been saving up to pay for part of her Life of Faith doll. Kora, Aubrey, and Brynna all have at least one, but we've always made the deal with them that we'll pay for part of it for a birthday and they have to pay for the rest. Since they are expensive dolls, we felt like they would take better care of them if they had to save up for part of it and realized how long that took.
She was very excited. Brynna has had hers for about a year and a half, and it was hard on Hailey not to have one to play with when they would play dolls (poor girl, she had to make due with just an ordinary doll). But now she has her own Violet doll.
And tomorrow she gets her boot off! Probably. It depends on the x-ray of course, but if it looks like the doctor expects, then she'll be back to normal tomorrow - a mere 13 weeks after she broke her leg!
