Splish Splash

Yea! The pool is open in our neighborhood. We took Hayden Thursday and he seemed to enjoy it. I think he would have had a better time if he had had longer than an hour nap that afternoon. My dad was worried about the look on his face in a few of the pictures. He thought he looked scared. I think he was just checking everything out and more fascinated with all the kids splashing around him. Our life seems to change more and more each day with this kid! He started saying "Mamma" on Friday and now he loves saying it...and I love him saying it! He has 2 teeth on the bottom and 4 on top now. The top ones all came in at the same time. You can see most of them in one of the pictures. He is getting into everything and really keeping us on our toes. Yesterday he pushed his little toy piano up to the coffee table and I found him trying to crawl on top of the table. He loves Matts laptop cords, the fireplace, the stairs, the dishwasher, and plants. Why do we have toys for him? We are having a blast though. Here are the most recent pics of him.

Mother's Day

Yesterday was my first Mother's Day! I had a wonderful day. Matt bought me a card and Hayden got me a card, a coffee mug with his picture on it from Kodak Gallery so I can sip my morning coffee and smile, a framed picture and a few 5x7's and an 8x10 of him. Matt even took me to Taco Bell for my Mother's Day lunch! Ha,Ha. We've been going to early service at church so our afternoons are longer, so we took Hayden for a nature hike. He seemed to enjoy it, even though he was halfway asleep most of the time because it was nap time for him. I was informed by my sis in law that my last post was outdated. Hayden is crawling now! Our life is changing a little more every day. We have a very curious little guy on our hands. Needless to say, he's learning the word no. We think of it as killing two birds with one stone. He's learning "no" and his last name at the same time! He's been a little grumpy the past week because he's getting three teeth at once. Everytime he gets a new tooth, he gets a full blown head cold with it. So, he's not only frustrated with his mouth hurting, he has to put up with a snotty nose and cough too. Poor fella! I guess that's all that's going on right now. I'll put some new pictures on here. Until our next milestone...
