Merry Christmas Eve and 33 weeks!

Tonight we enjoyed the Christmas Eve service at our church.  Well, sadly, I don't know if "enjoyed" is the right word.  It was definitely not their best service.  Oh well, we enjoyed family time and celebrating Christ's birth.

Here's our little Christmas angel this year! She's so cute all dressed up for Christmas, and so happy to go over to Great-Grandma's and open presents!

Here I am at 33 weeks pregnant today!

My Goodness! She's Cute!

Here's Hayden's new Tinkerbell chair! She loves it but it still doesn't take the place of her bouncer chair because it doesn't lay back like she likes.  She's so cute though!

17 months



Hayden Isabella,
You are 17 months now! You are so beautiful! I love you more and more everyday! You are definitely a toddler now! You run around like crazy, love to get into things you shouldn't, and you have some attitude sometimes! You are so funny! You're not a very good eater right now, and sometimes we worry about you not wanting to eat anything.  You love your milk and we are STILL trying to get you off of drinking it only from a bottle! You "talk" a lot but don't really have too many real words that you say.  You sign a lot now though! You can sign: strawberry, grapes, apple, more, all done, please, milk, and I think there's more, but that's all I can think of at the time.  You know exactly what you're doing when you say "uh oh" though! You weigh 22 lbs still and some ounces but Daddy forgot when you went to the doctor.  You had a pretty bad rash on your tummy and we're still not sure where it came from but it took about a week to go away.  You love to play outside and you love when Grandma comes over! You wear 12-18 month clothes and size 4-5 shoes.  You're in a size 3-4 diaper.  You are such a doll and love to give kisses all of the time! 
I love you so much! 
Love, 
Mommy


At our neighborhood park!

Loving the slide!


She's found out how to climb onto our bed and she loves to sit at the edge, usually with her legs tucked between the footboard and the mattress.  (This morning watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.)

Menu Planning Saturday

We usually go grocery shopping over the weekend, so I'm going to try to menu plan.  It's hard for me to keep to it though, but I'm going to try!

Sunday: Potato Leek Soup  Because Vickie's was so good!
Monday: Ranch Tetrazzini
Tuesday: Broccoli Rice and Chicken
Wednesday: Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
Thursday: Dinner at Grandmas
Friday: Left overs
Saturday: Dinner out

Here's hoping it works out! Wednesday may get postponed because I need to find someone to watch Hayden in the afternoon.  Thus, I'd probably have dinner with Grandma or Dad, whoever can watch her.

16 months!



Hayden Isabella,
You are amazing.  You are CRAZY too! You make me laugh everyday! As I write this you are napping in your bouncer chair, face down, knees on the floor.   You weigh about 23 lbs now and are about 30 1/2 inches tall.  You still where 12 month clothes and size 4 shoes.  You are speaking more and more everyday.  You're also signing a lot too! Your new favorite sign is "baby" and you love to do it when we put on the Baby Signing Time DVD for you.  You say "Da" for Daddy now and still don't really say "Mama" yet.  That's ok, I'll wait.  :o)

You love to grab us and take us where you want to go.  Usually to take our hand and walk us into the kitchen for a strawberry or down to your room to read a few books.  I love it. You're definitely a crab if you don't take a nap though! This afternoon I saw that in full force especially since you woke up at 4:20am! I was not ready for that!

You love to climb onto the couch and cuddle or into your big girl bed and read a book.  You also love to chase Leo and try to cuddle him, but he's fond of that.

I love you so much baby girl.  You are beautifully and fearfully made.

Love,
Mommy

Apple Annie's!

We took a family trip up to Apple Annie's today! Last year, Hayden was just a little baby, just 4 months old when we went.  This year, she's a big girl, 15 months! She had a lot of fun and we did too.  We started at the orchard and ate lunch then picked a few apples.  We didn't get too many because we don't want to waste them.  Then we headed to the pumpkin patch.  We didn't find too many good looking pumpkins in the patch so we ended up buying one that they had picked.  Oh well.  I did, however, pick 2 whole tomatoes! :o) Hayden was a trooper for the long drive up and back, she slept both ways!

Here we are after lunch and Hayden ate the first apple we picked!

Hayden in the same place as last year!

2010 at 15 months old!

Family picture!

Loving the apple she got to eat!

Will's first apple! (The apple Hayden ate!)

Another family shot!

Hayden liked playing with the sunflowers but there were a lot of bees in them!

Here's me with my first apple! Also, at 22 weeks pregnant!  I don't feel like I looked pregnant at all today! Just... chubby.


Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 22 Weeks
Size of baby: length of a spaghetti squash
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gained 3 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Uh, yah.
Gender: It's another GIRL!
Movement: mostly at night and really low 
Sleep: definitely getting more uncomfortable!
What I miss: not being tired... but that hasn't happened since Hayden!
Cravings: I eat a lot of fruit like I did with Hayden
Symptons: I'm still tired all of the time, but I think that's because of work and Hayden too!
Best Moment this week: going to Apple Annie's with my beautiful family!

Late night

Well, I started my Fall Break with nasty cold.  It lasted the whole first week, and now I've passed it down to Hayden for the second week of break.  Great.  She seems to be feeling a bit better today but last night was a different story.  She fell asleep at 7pm, which is normal, but then woke up at 10pm.  She did not want to go back to sleep and threw quite a fit.  Then the throwing up began.  Poor baby! I was kind of in a panic though because I had nothing to catch it in! I yelled for Will and he brought a towel and helped me clean it up off the floor.  Can I just tell you that baby puke is not the smell you want to smell when you are pregnant.  Ick.  Anyway, my baby is feeling better this morning but is tired.  She snuggled me in bed for about an hour before she was ready to go back to sleep herself.  We watched some Disney Channel together and just cuddled.  I hate when she doesn't feel good!

This morning she wanted the nectarine that I was having, and did some damage on that thing!

Feeling better!

15 months

Hayden,
You are 15 months old today.  You are wild and crazy! I can't keep you still! You are so much fun! You love your fruit and I have a hard time getting you to eat anything else! You have learned how to open our bedroom doors from the inside or the outside. You head-butt EVERYTHING! You have finally started giving kisses again after being greedy with them for about a month! I love that you share your toys and your food with anyone who asks.  You're so sweet.  I love cuddling you and Daddy gets to take good naps with you sleeping on his chest.  I'm jealous! I love snuggling you on the couch before bed time.  I love that you hold your ears when you are tired and that you've done that since you were a tiny baby.  You have learned how to climb up and down on the couch and do it pretty well now.  You're still not saying any real words but you do use your sign language for "more" and "all done."  You've also started blowing kisses.  You're going to be a wonderful big sister.  I love you Sweet Pea!!
Love,
Mommy

Hayden was given a pair of Oshkosh overalls from our friend Lindsey and her daughter Alayna.  I found them in a drawer and thought they'd look so cute!

An Afternoon at the Children's Museum

This morning we were bad and ditched out on church... Whoopsy.   Well we went to In N Out for lunch then headed up to the Children's Museum for the first time.  I've been before, but a loooong time ago and we decided to take Hayden there! She had  a lot of fun but Will wished there was more to it. She looked super cute today, if I do say so myself! 

Here's Hayden and Mommy today.
Our stop at In N Out where Hayden got some stickers.
Being a Police Officer with Daddy.
She loved playing in the music room!
Playing!
Looking at the dinosaurs!
She found a strawberry! Her favorite! She pulled that out every time we put it back.
