13 month pics

I had a coupon left over from Hayden's birthday for some free pictures, and since she wasn't walking yet when we had her 1 year pictures taken, I wanted some of her standing and in her tu-tu. She wasn't very cooperative with the tu-tu the first go around, but was much better this time! She's such a ham! :)

Happy Birthday Drew!

Today was our God-son Drew's 2nd birthday! It was such a gorgeous day that we had all the festivities outside and the kiddos loved it! Drew loves playing with Hayden now that she walks around and can be a little more interactive. And, she loves to play with all his toys! :) Happy Birthday Drew-man!

Discoverd dirt!

This girl loves dirt and flowers! :) The picture above is how she "smells" flowers! At the end of this day, she had dirt EVERYWHERE and now, it's harder than heck to keep her out of the flowerbeds and pots!

Daddy Day!

While I went to a scrapbooking class, Jeremy took Hayden up to the Capital Campus to look at the flowers. She LOVES flowers, especially smelling them! :) Too cute...and daddy even took some good pictures! She's such a lucky little girl to have a daddy who loves her so much and takes such good care of her! Melts a mommy's heart! :)

Hayden has never really had noticable growth spurts so far in her short life, but holy cow she's been a piggy lately!

Here's what she's eaten the last three days for dinner (she has a cup of milk - 6 oz everymorning and then to daycare for breakfast, lunch and snacks):

Tuesday: 1 hotdog, 1/2 cup mac n cheese, 10 grapes, 1 yo-baby yogurt, 6 oz water, then 6 oz milk right before tub/bed

Wednesday: 1 piece hawaiian pizza, almost an entire can of peach slices, handful of banana puffs, 6 oz water, followed by 6 oz milk before bed

Thursday (today): 1 medium sized pancake, 1 sausage link, 1 egg, the two left over peach slices from wednesday night, 6 oz of milk with dinner, then 6 oz more before bed

Does that seem like a lot of food for a 13 month old!?! ;) We even asked her daycare if they were feeding her at all during the day and they said she's been eating fine! So I guess we'll get some use out of those too-big clothes soon! She's getting so skinny (losing her thigh rolls)!!

Happy Easter!!

Hayden had a pretty busy Easter this year! It was nice having her old enough (and able to walk) to participate in the festivities!

Saturday, we went to the egg hunt at the highschool. They had thousands of eggs and had areas seperated for little kids vs. big kids. She did pretty good and got the whole concept of picking the eggs up and putting them in her basket, only she wanted to chew on them a bit first! :) She promptly crashed in the car on the way home for nap time!

On Sunday, she got her basket from the Easter Bunny. It had a cool puzzle, some socks, a bunny and some yummy candy that mommy & daddy had to eat for her! ;) She loves the puzzle!

For Easter dinner, we went to my Uncle Tim & Aunt Dianne's house. We first put her in this dress, but since she's sorta inbetween sizes right now, we decided it was too short and swapped it for another dress (that was a little too big!) We did egg hunts inside, since it was so cruddy outside and by the days end, she was totally getting the concept down!

Washing Cars!

Yesterday afternoon, Jeremy washed his car with mine & Hayden's "help!" Basically, she tottled around smelling flowers, playing in the soapy water and playing! :)

Smelling the flowers

This is the only sign-language sign she does (all done)! :)

This is my favorite picture!

Point Defiance Zoo

Hayden reached over to Drew and he grabbed her hand. They just sat there holding hands for a few minutes! :) So cute and spontaneous! We didn't even make them do it! :)

Since Sunday was such a nice day and Hayden was feeling better, we decided to tag along with Tim, Sarah & Drew to the zoo. I wasn't sure if Hayden would be old enough to care much, but she loved it. She's such a people watcher too...loved seeing all the kids! She actually pointed at the animals and was truly interested in them! Can't wait to go again! Here's a few pics, click on the link to see all of them.

Random Pictures

I just realized that I didn't post a 13 month update for Hayden! I'm thinking now that she's a year old, I will only update when she goes to the dr (15, 18 & 24 months). But until's some random cute pictures of the bug! :) She's so much fun lately, even if it's tiring chasing and cleaning up after her! She loves to play in Mijo's bed (and his food/water if we're not watching), the tupperware bowls (which apparently she uses as a helmet these days!) and bouncing at the bottom of the stairs!

Easter Bunny

Today we had Hayden's picture taken with the Easter Bunny at the mall. She was SO serious and we looked like idiots trying to get her to smile. This ended up being the best picture...the only one she looked at the camera! All other pictures, she was looking at the Easter Bunny or poking and pulling at his ears/shirt/etc.! It is cute tho that the exact same Easter Bunny held her only a year ago! She was so tiny! What a difference a year makes huh?
