Tiny Girl in a BIG Toy
She likes to sit in her walked even though it's still too big for her. Her feet are a longs ways from touching the ground. I think she feels all grown up when she sits in it all by herself. She can't even reach any of the toys in order to entertain herself. So, she just sits there, kicks her feet, and tries not to fall forward......I guess that can be fun for a baby!

What Do You Think You're Looking At!?

It appears that Hayden doesn't like Mazie staring at her while she is trying to play in her walker. She would be "playing" and then stop and look over at Mazie as if to say...."quit staring at me!!" Just wait until she gets a little brother!!!!

Rolling Over?
Here is little Miss Hayden trying desperately to roll over on her back. She HATES to be on her belly. She is SO close to being able to roll over....maybe it's the Florida air?!

Where's Daddy?.....

Hayden is getting so great at holding her head up. She is even to the point where she is almost pushing up with her arms. She's getting ready to crawl soon..... I think she was trying to find daddy in this picture. We were sad that he couldn't make the trip with us.

Holding Hands with Pappy

Hayden and I began our road trip to Florida at 5:45am on Thursday morning. We got there around 1:00 in the afternoon. She did so well in the car. She slept for about 6 out of the 7 hours. She didn't really fuss at all while she was awake!! We decided to take the trip to Florida because Uncle Johnny was coming home from London for the weekend. Hayden had never met Uncle Johnny.....so we just had to make the trip!

While we were at the airport on Thursday waiting for Johnny to come in from London Hayden decided to hold Pappy's hand.

Love at First Sight

John wanted to hold Hayden the moment that he saw her. He thinks that she is just the cutest thing ever..and she doesn't think he's too bad either! He even said that he wants "one of these" to take back to London with him. He gave her a nickname "Hay-Bale".

Cuddle Time with Pappy

Hayden has just had the best time here in Florida. She loves the weather and everything else that comes with Florida. She has been all smiles and laughs all weekend. Both she and Pappy have enjoyed the one on one time they have gotten to spend together.

Bath Time in Florida

Pappy went out and bought Hayden this tub so that we could bathe her. She loved kicking and splashing in the warm water.

Pappy Bathing Hayden

Pappy had such a great time giving Hayden a bath on Friday night. He just loved watching her kick her feet and splash water everywhere.

Drag Racing Central?!

Here are two pictures of Pappy outside. Some teens were driving up and down and up and down and up and down the street on their dirt bikes. It was very noisy so Pappy decided to go out and put a stop to it. His exact words before he went outside were, "What is this Drag Racing Central or something!?" Unfortunately, when he went out there he scared them off for good.....or they were just done for the day.

Naked Time in the Crib
I put Hayden in her crib this afternoon while I changed the cover on her changing pad. She loved watching her mobile "in the nude". She did pause for a moment in order to pose for a picture. Then she went back to talking to the mobile.

It's a Bird....It's a Plane.....It's SUPER HAYDEN!

I happen to catch a glimpse of Hayden as she was flying around the corner into the office today. She's just so smart.....she peeks around the corner before she makes the turn.

As soon as she saw the flash from my camera she paused for a quick shot.

When daddy and Hayden do the "flying trick" daddy's job is to make the motor sounds...notice the face.

SO Big........

Hayden is now able to sit facing forward in her Snugli because she can hold her little head up all by herself! She is getting so big!! I was telling Jeremy the other day that she now looks and feels like a "big baby" when I cradle her in my arms....no more little newborn!

Hayden's First Friend
On Saturday we had John, Jessica, and their daughter Hannah over. Hannah is 10 days older than Hayden. They had such a fun time playing together that when it was time to say good bye Hannah got a little emotional about it......as you can see.

Hayden's Lil' Buddy

Here is Hayden with one of her favorite toys. She just loves to cuddle with it and give it kisses....aka try to stuff as much of it as she can in her mouth.

Talking Away

Here's a close up of Hayden during one of our conversations. She just has so much to say....it's just too bad we can't understand her.

The Window
Jeremy's brothers wife or my sister-in-law, Jamie, gave me this window for Christmas. She painted the white crackle frame. As soon as I got it I knew that I wanted to put it in Hayden's room. So, I decided to try and paint flowers on it like the ones that are in her room. Getting the painted objects to actually look like flowers was a little harder than I thought. But-here it is!

The New Do....
Well, the long hair lasted for about three months after I had Hayden. That's not too bad-well, I guess that depends on who you ask in this house hold! It's easy and I love it!

Waking Up....
This is what the little one looks like when she just wakes up from one of her morning naps. We have to be very careful not to startle her because she is not totally with it when she just wakes up. You can tell that by the look on her face.

The Dress That John Bought

We got this beautiful dress in the mail today from Uncle John. We love it and can't wait for her to wear it to church on Sunday

Not Quite Able To Sit Up Yet....

The picture and title says it all.......

Bad To The Bone in Her Bernsie

We decided to cut one of her onesies into a sleeveless onesie. Bernie, my step dad, will appreciate this one. He is a big fan of the sleeveless undershirts or as some call them the "wife beaters". We didn't want to name the sleeveless onesie a wife beater so we called it a Bernsie after Bernie! The Harley Davidson jacket actually belongs to Mazie (our Yokie). We just threw it in the picture as a prop. Doesn't it look like Hayden has a little attitude in this picture. Almost like she is saying, "Eh, you talkin' to me!?"

Sea Creatures

Mom and Bernie gave us these sea creatures for Christmas. When we got them they were about the size of a baseball. We put them in the tub for about a week and they grew! The one on the left is a sting ray and the one on the right is a star fish.

This is also the last picture of me with long hair! I am going today to get it chopped off. It's just getting in the way and I am tired of it.

First Pair of Jeans
On Saturday we went out shopping for Hayden's first pair of jeans. Doesn't she look all grown up in this outfit!?
