Pennsylvania Bike Race
Short Lived Fit...
Hayden was not too happy with me putting the step stool away this morning. She decided to sit in the cabinet and do a "self cool down".

It then turned into a game after about 1 minute of crying. She was opening and closing the door saying "Boo!"

If this is as "terrible" as she gets I can deal with that!

Hayden & Her Best Buddy
Hayden is just in love with Grady. He is so good with her too. She climbs all over him and he just takes it. Here she is giving him a kiss.

Now she hugs him and decides that she's going to try and climb on his back.

More Grady time.

Jerm took this picture. Doesn't it look like she is shielding away the paparazzi!

Sitting on Grady.

How I know that Hayden won't be a hunter:

Yesterday, Hayden was in the bathroom with Moo Moo (our cat). She was watching Moo drink out of the toilet (water was "clean"). I don't think that Hayden liked the idea of Moo drinking out of the toilet so I think she tried to get Moo down. Well, Moo went in the toilet! Just a little dip. Moo went running and Hayden started screaming for Mommy. All Hayden could talk about was finding Moo Moo so she could give her a hug. So, we HAD to find Moo and give her a hug because Hayden felt so bad. Hayden has such a compassionate heart I just know she won't be able to shoot a deer or even see her daddy shoot a deer. She would cry right on the spot!

Braves Game
Tonight we went to the Braves game with some friends of ours, Robert and Lynnsey. When we picked them up we realized that Lynnsey and Hayden were kind of dressed alike! So, we had to get a picture.
Jerm did such a great job finding one of the closest parking spots for his 8 month pregnant wife! He ignored the parking pass color that we had and went to the closest parking lot, then when we got as far as they would "let us" he rolled down the window and said, "I'm gonna need something a little closer for my 8 month pregnant wife." and they directed him to pretty much the first row! It was awesome. The belly talks! And people listen...I tell ya what!

Robert, daddy, and Hayden eating peanuts and talking about hunting while Lynnsey and I talked girl talk. None of us really watched a lot of the game. It was just nice for us to get out with some friends and chat!

Cartoon Network is a place that we had to visit-for Hayden's sake of course!

This is right before daddy and Hayden went down the huge twisty slide.
She wanted to go down over and over again. Daddy could only take it twice!
Daddy crawled through the tree tunnel so Hayden followed his lead.

Sprinkler Time!!
We went over to our next door neighbor's house the other day and they had a special gift for Hayden....a flower sprinkler! So, when we got home today we just had to try it out! Hayden wasn't so sure about it at first. As long as mommy or daddy was by her side she loved it.

Here's Hayden trying to coax Mazie, Grady, and Moo Moo to come through the sprinkler.

Drinking the water on her hands.

Trying to actually drink the water.

Still trying.....

Before Jeremy and I had Hayden we went on a little weekend getaway to the north Georgia mountains. Well, Jeremy was able to talk me into getting away for a one night babymoon before baby number 2 comes. We left Hayden with some friends of our from church and took off to Stone Mountain. We didn't want to go too far away since I am 8 months pregnant and this is the first time that we have left Hayden.
Jeremy really went out of his way to plan a great relaxing weekend. He got us a Romance Package that included a suite, dinner, breakfast, champagne & strawberries, and massages at the spa!! Here is the double door to our suite!

Here is the lake view from the balcony of our suite.

This is the view from The Commons-where we had dinner on Friday night. That's Stone Mountain. When we got back to the hotel there was sparkling cider and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us! After we enjoyed those we went to Stone Mountain to see the laser light show. It was pretty amazing.
On Saturday morning we took the Skylift to the top of Stone Mountain.

I had to sit down a rest a few times.

Looks like I should not have gotten on the Skylift....but nobody stopped me. I guess they know better than to question an 8 month pregnant lady!
Here is the carving that's on the side of the mountain.
Click here for more information on Stone Mountain & the carving.
The last thing that we did before we left was get our massages. Jerm got a Swedish massage.
I got a prenatal massage. It was wonderful!!!

Sleeping Beauty
Ever since we cut out Hayden's morning nap she has been a little "slow moving" during lunch time. We normally put her down for her nap very soon after lunch. Today, Jerm and I were just chatting away over lunch. I realized that Hayden was being extra quiet...silent....so I looked over and she was sound asleep

We tried to get the video camera out fast enough to catch the head bobbing, but we weren't quick enough.

Happy Father's Day Dads!!

Everything Dad

A little girl needs her daddy
To love her with manly charm,
To soothe her when she’s hurt,
And keep her safe from harm.

A girl needs her dad
To show her a man who’s good,
To help her make right choices,
As only a father could

A woman needs her father
Just to be aware,
He’ll always be there for her
To sustain her and to care.

You’ve been all these things, Dad.
I hope that you can see
How much I treasure you;
You mean everything to me.

Mommy's Socks
Hayden put these socks on all by herself. I guess she just knew how well they matched with her outfit or something.

She's into Everything!
This piece of mommy's clothing is one of Hayden's favorites to play with......lingerie and underwear. Who knows why, but she love the stuff!

The little pink ghost is "higin" (hiding).

Hayden has learned how to yodel by watching the yodeler on the computer. For the letter "Y" on Starfall there is a yodeler. She loves to watch him. Finally she got up enough courage to try out yodeling herself and we were ready with the camera. I tell you, this child will do ANYTHING to make her mommy and daddy laugh. She has such a great sense of humor.

Church Baby Shower
The chef at the church insisted that he and his wife throw me a shower. They believe that every baby should have some sort of celebration. I couldn't disagree!

He served spinach artichoke dip, chips, salad, vegetables, fruit, wrap sandwiches, chicken salad, finger sandwiches, pasta salad, cake, ice cream, and punch!! It was all wonderful. We took tons of food home, so we will be enjoying it all week long!

Children were welcome so there were lots there! Hayden was even able to hang out with one of her friends from the toddler room on Sundays.

The cake was so beautiful. The baby in the corner is done with fondant (which is edible). We didn't eat it though. They took it off the cake before we cut it. So, I now have it in my refrigerator...not sure what I will do with it though! It's really cute. Hayden sat right by my side and checked out all of the gifts that her little sister got. She even got a few gifts!

Great Pillow
Hayden loves to rest her head on my baby bump when we play on the computer. Her sister doesn't like it too much because she kicks like crazy. It doesn't even phase Hayden though.
