We got Hayden a swing for her birthday. She loves it! I was a little fearful since she hated her baby swing. I also regretted getting the red and blue one when I found out that there was a pink one! Grr. Oh well. We kept this one. I mean, who knows what this next baby is going to be.
Last but not least, I leave you with how she felt about the avocado I gave her...
She loves guacamole, but avocados alone... gets the snorty nose.
This is my special 100th post!! I've been waiting to make this special! So, Hayden's first birthday was on Father's Day, June 20, 2010! We started the day off with her presents, then headed to church. After church, we met my mom and grandma at Beyond Bread for lunch.
Presents! No, we didn't wrap them... oh well...
This is her new Cabbage Patch baby. Get this, her name is Eulalia Lakita. Really, Cabbage Patch, really?
Hayden got Creme Brulee! She loved it!
Happy Birthday girl!
Hey Grandma! What'd you bring me?!
A Corn Popper!
Ooo! And cute clothes!
With Mommy and Daddy on her birthday!
Oh and one more treat! Her shirt says "Guess what a little birdie told me..."
"I'm going to be a big sister!"
It's true! Here's number 2! Due February 11, 2011!
The doctor said it was safe to announce! We announced it officially at Hayden's birthday party yesterday with the little birdie shirt! You should have seen some of those shocked faces!
Here I was... attractive, no? Contractions had woken me up at 3am. I knew something was different, but since I had never experienced it before I didn't know what was going on. I called my mom and she thought I was in early labor. I called my dad who had gone to San Diego the day before, even though I told him it could happen at anytime! He swore I'd go late since it was my first baby. Ha! I sent Will to work at 7am, but called him back by 9am. He took me to the hospital at 10am. After the checked me out, they made me walk around for an hour to see if I progressed, I did. I was admitted at noon when my labor had officially begun since I progressed.
So, again... just admitted... this is real!
Hey... we're having a baby!
Probably the only time he's ever willingly rubbed my back, although he didn't enjoy sitting behind me since my water had been broken! I did like laboring on the birth ball though! That's where I did all I could take without an epidural. I finally got it at 6cm. I don't know what time that was!
Today's post is a mish mash of delicious photos of my precious baby girl that I've taken over the last couple of days.
I can't believe that in a few short days my baby is turning 1! Where has this year gone?! She's walking now, but still not talking. We're getting a little worried that she's not talking like she is "supposed to." She is my pride and joy and I love having this summer with her! She's wild and crazy and running me ragged but we're having so much fun! I love my baby girl so much!
Happy morning girl!
Happy after getting a fresh diaper!
