Well, I haven't posted in a few weeks, so I figured I better put something on here! I have been spending my days and nights dealing with a spoiled little baby. I have tried to blame this on anything and anyone but myself so here's my excuse...this child has been in a different state three times in 4.5 short months. We were starting to figure him out, then we went home in October. About the time we got him back to sleeping through the night and not thinking he had to be held all the time, we went home for 10 days at Christmas. Then January 10th, my grandpa passed away and off Hayden and I went to Brownwood for 8 days. Now this child thinks he can wake up three times a night and mommy will come running and he thinks he needs to sit in my lap all day. I guess we will soon find out who is more stubborn! On a good note, Hayden is loving solid food! He now eats veggies at lunch and his cereal and fruit before bed. I swear he would eat two bowls if we let him. He definitely has my appetite:) He will be 5 months old on Saturday. I can't believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like I was just pregnant, swelling in the August heat! I'll post a few cute pictures of him on this post, and I promise to start updating this more often. I read our friend Jeny's and she has two boys and posts very often. I love reading about what is going on with Mitchell and Mark, so I have no excuse with just one little pill!

Christmas '05

I guess I need to add some Christmas pictures to the blog now too! We had so much fun in Texas. We spent the first part of our trip in Dallas with Matt's family and the second half in Brownwood with my family. Hayden got to sit on Santa's lap while we were in Dallas. The picture turned out really cute. He's not afraid of Santa yet! Hayden also got a lot of play time with his cousins while we were in Brownwood. The house was full with 2 babies, 2 toddlers, and 2 older cousins. I wish I could post all of our pictures, but I'll just choose a few. Oh, one more thing...the last night we were there, Hayden decided he knew how to roll over. He's only done it once since then, but at least we know he can do it!


Hayden ate some cereal last night! We tried it when he was about 8 weeks old and it did not settle well with him. So, we decided to wait for the "ok" from the doctor. He had his 4 month checkup on Monday, January 2, and he weighed 14lb. and was 26in. long. He is going to be built like his daddy -- tall and thin. The doctor said we can start with some cereal once a day, then move on to veggies and fruit. I almost couldn't shovel the cereal in his mouth fast enough. I added a few more recent pictures of him too.
