Chapter One :Haley ;Did The Storm Bring Her Or Vice Versa ?

Updated on May 16, 2012

Chapter One:Haley, Did The Storm Bring Her or Vice Versa?

Haley was born in the middle of a Spring Snowstorm.

It was the worst snow in years. It was a time the whole

family would never forget, not just the 20 inches of snow

that fell but Haley came into the world then.

She was so ,little she looked like a little doll baby. She

didn't cry little, though.When she cried you could hear her

all over the hospital.

Grandpa and Grandma had been waiting so long for a baby

girl to come to their family.When Grandpa heard the baby had

been named "Haley", he said "comet"and all of his life she

would be "Comet", to him,Grandma told him ,"When she gets a

little bigger you'll think she's a comet". And she was so right.

Haley wasn't the best baby to take care of .She wanted to

asleep all day and stay awake all night. Mommy would rock her

and her big eyes would be shut . As quietly as Mommy tried

to get up those big eyes would pop open and she would look up

as if to say,"Fooled you ., didn't I?" They knew she would grow

out of these habits. Grandma knew it ,too., because Haley's daddy

had done the same thing when he was a baby.

Haley had brown curly hair and big brown eyes and she loved

to be held. That was no problem because everyone that saw

her wanted to hold her,She learned early that a whimper would

bring her a pick up very quickly.

It was hard to believe that she grew so fast She was setting up

then Mommy found her first tooth, Haley bit her,that is how she found


Daddy set Haley on the floor one day. I guess she didn't like it

because she crawled away. Was Daddy surprised !

She tried to pull herself up to the table, she grabbed the tablecloth.

Down went Haley ,tablecloth, dishes and all .Haley cried and the

puppy ran. I guess he thought he would be blamed for it.

Oh, by the way ,puppy found out when she got her second tooth.She

bit his tail and he let out such a howl of pain mommy came running to

see what happened. There sat Haley looking like she was ready to cry.

Puppy had already disappeared.

Soon Haley was walking, I should say ,taking about two steps and

setting down hard on the floor .Puppy stayed away from her then.Finally

she was walking clear across the floor. Then Puppy thought it was safe

to come around her again.


I will put the last chapter on in the next day or two,.

I hope that you will enjoy reading it Part of it is true

and part fiction. bye for now .Clara
