Okay, it's not a tremendous amount after all.
Since Halle isn't nearly as popular as Suri Cruise nor is Brad an ex-Cirque carny, I'm afraid that I've accidentally lead YouTubers into a trap of cuteness. It's not a clip of Batman. Sorry, guys.
Coming Tomorrow: Halle feeding ducks and geese and turtles, oh my!

Halle has been bewitched.
It seems that a run-of-the-mill criminal broke into Grandma's house and quickly turned the TV station to Barney and Friends when Grandma wasn't looking. The perpetrator vanished before he or she could be caught, but the damage was done. In no time, Halle was dancing under its spell like a Desperate Housewife of Salem, Massachusetts, circa 1692.
Barney & Friends is to adults as chocolate is to dogs.
I guess I'll have to counterbalance that with an ironic Berenstein Bears book about the disruptive nature of commercials and I would assume, corporate licensure of characters. Sigh.

Note: when Halle is really tired and ready for bed, she goes to the baby gate, waves her hand and says "bye bye". It's incredibly cute and reminds us of how lucky we are to have such a good baby.
This morning, I walked into Halle's room around 9:30am, which is way earlier than she is accustomed to. I cooed, "Good morning, baby" and went to open her blinds. She blinked and pulled her blanket over her head.
Knowing I had to be at work by 10am, I had to nudge her awake as soon as possible. I started rubbing her back and after a minute or two, she rolled over and smiled at me. Good, let's get going, I thought. She quickly turned over to lie on her stomach again, pulling the blanket over her head.
So I start rubbing her back again and talk about what a pretty day it is outside. She rolls over and, to save time, I change her diaper right there in her crib. She wakes up little by little, giggling at the usual "diapee" song and dance. When she's clean and diapered I offer to pick her up. She stands up, thinks about it for a minute... then she said, "Bye bye." and lays back down.

*No, not in that way! Who could blame him if Olive did that a lot?

Although it's astonishing and really, really cute, I'm not sure if I'd spend thousands of dollars for photo-print wallpaper in a room where my kids play with crayons, markers, and chalk...
From a recent issue of Real Living Magazine. The text says "Red is a great colour for girls or boys - and it goes well with taupe!".

SO! I took a recording of Halle laughing. She was probably six months old at the time.
She loves to listen to this now. =)
Click on Recording.wav and when the 4shared page loads, click on the blue "Download Now" button. The recording should only take about 10 seconds to download because it is so short.

So about 10 minutes ago my mom got a notice from Sam’s club for the bill and she was so excited. I have never seen her so excited about a bill before. So I was curious and I looked over and saw a late fee for almost 125 dollars!
Me: Mom! Why didn’t you pay the bill!
Mom: Sam clup give me the free money!
Me: No, you have to PAY or else that fee will get higher.
Mom: What? I thought the late free?
Me: No FREE has an R, FEE means you have to pay.
Mom: Dang sam clup try to trick the asian people
