Mommy loves this picture

5-month pics with the bear

Here I am again - I now weigh 19# and am almost 26" tall!!! (This was from yesterday's 6-month visit at the pediatrician) 6-month pics with the bear to come this weekend!

Trying the sippy cup

So now we are trying the sippy cup - I haven't quite figured out how this thing works.  Most of the time I just end up pretty wet

More FOOD!!!

I have gone crazy eating - and am now refusing (yes, refusing!!) any and all bottles

Don't I look like Mommy's daddy? (except of course, I am growing SOME hair - if you look closely)


I LOVE it when Daddy swings me up high - so far I haven't spit up on him yet...

Danielle visits

Danielle came into town to visit and go to Steve and Kelley's wedding


I am a pretty messy eater... it's not like Mommy and Daddy miss my mouth or anything ;)

Look how big I'm getting...

hanging out in the swing (I think I am getting close to the limit - what do you think???)

Trying again...

so after a little more time, Mommy and Daddy decided to try cereal again - now I LOVE it!!! and I really, REALLY like to eat bananas! YUM!

Hanging out...

with Zane - one of my favorite spots on the couch!

starting early

Daddy has introduced me to electronics - I gaze at the stereo fondly and often... so far he only lets me play with the timer!

First bites

I tried cereal for the 1st time in August...
as you might be able to tell - I was not the world's biggest fan of it

New toy!

this is a picture of me in my new Jumperoo - I just haven't quite figured out how to use it... but these flashing toys sure are cool!!!  I really like it when Mommy bounces me in it - she keeps looking at me like I am supposed to do something myself

All right here we go... (marathon update!!!)

Sorry for the long delay in updates - I have been VERY busy staying up late partying in my crib all night long... my parents keep trying to get me to sleep

Here I am holding my bottle - these are some of the last times I took a bottle willingly.  These days I am not so into drinking from a bottle (but that's a whole 'nother story!)

All tired out...

so this is my last post for today... see you soon!

Love, Hayden

Spit bubbles...

are my specialty! I can make a HUGE bunch of them before they become drool... or before my Mommy finds them and wipes my face clean

I love my elephant!

well, I love to chew on him...

Look at my onesie VERY carefully...

can you read it? BALD IS BEAUTIFUL!!!

I can bounce myself in my bouncy chair now - although I still prefer that Mommy or Daddy do it for me :)

Sitting with Zane

not one of my better moments...

I can sit!

ok - you have to be pretty quick to see it, but I can sit for a tiny bit with no support! (then I topple over...)

4-months old with bear!

Visiting the Tuckers!

One of my favorite new faces to make involves just lifting one eyebrow... and I like to give shy half-smiles too...

I am still sick... and Mommy doesn't think I am eating enough, but somehow I gained another 3 ounces over the last two days - the doctor says it seems I am getting enough nutrition :)

I am HUGE!!

Today I had a doctor's appointment because I am sick... cough cough... but fortunately, it hasn't affected my appetite - I weigh 15 lbs and 12 oz!  (just to recap, I weighed 15 lbs fully clothed on 8/4!!!), and I am now 24.5 inches tall!!  I think I am a giant and rapidly catching up to my cousin!

Learning to read!

Some of Mommy's friends had a book shower for me - I received a BUNCH of really cool books, so now I am getting started on learning to read... I was a little upset about Curious George getting into trouble - but Daddy explained that is just what he does... I think I am going to be a big Curious George fan like Daddy!

Look how big I'm getting...

First 2 pictures are from today and yesterday and the next 2 pictures are from June! Can you see how much I have grown?  and the big news... I am starting to grow some more hair!! (well, kind of...)

Still lovin' my bath!

I now know when it is bath time - both my clothes and diaper come off and that ALWAYS brings a big, big smile to my face!

Daddy time

Soccer training

See how fast I am?


I really like to give hugs now - my teddy gets lots of them!

First day of daycare...

Since my Obaachan had to go home, Mommy and Daddy took me for my first day of daycare... here I am saying bye-bye to Mommy 

and this second picture is with my teacher, Ms. Laura
