the past few days

the past few days have not been fun around here

Friday: I went to the outlet malls with some friends. While we were eating Hayden put WAY too much in his mouth at one time and choked. Literally face blue lips purple choked! SO scary! I grabbed him out of the high chair and had him bent over ready to do the heimlich when he started gagging, so I knew he was breathing then he threw up. Not so fun, but at least he's fine!

Saturday: Hayden's runny nose got worse and he got a NASTY cough! So he was super whiny and clingy. I love him to death but the whining was a bit much by the end of the day!

Sunday: Hayden was still sick and I was in so much pain I could barely walk. My hips and lower back were killing me! I could possibly be my sciatic nerve, but I'm not sure. Hayden just wanted to be held but I couldn't pick him up unless I was sitting down. Josh walked around the house for an hour holding and rocking Hayden while Hayden layed his head on Josh's shoulder...super cute! AND I got a sore throat, wonderful!

Monday: I felt WAY better. The pain in my hips and back was gone, but by the end of the night my throat was killing me! Hayden coughed so hard he woke up from his nap after 1 1/2 hours instead of 3. Poor guy!

Tuesday: My throat still hurts and my body is achy. Hayden still has a cough and runny nose but is running around playing. We had not been out of the house in 3 days and I was getting a little stir crazy! So we ran to Wegmans and Target to get a few last minute items and hit some sales. During which my aching body made me wonder why we had left the house at all!

WAH WAH! this too shall pass and I'm sure we'll be back to normal soon!

We Miss You!

Hayden often comes over to the pictures of our families and points...mostly to his Dada, but we go through everyone and try to say their names. We also do this anytime we are holding him in front of all the pictures on our fridge. We miss you guys!

Our BIG little boy right after his bath


Hayden is so funny every time I hold someone else's baby he comes over and points to me and says mama mama over and over like he's reminding everyone that I'm still his mama. He even sometimes wants to sit on my lap with the baby too. The other day we watched our friend's baby and Hayden was so intrigued with everything. The noises he made, his car seat, his bottle, everything. He was also very concerned when the baby cried. He gave the baby plenty of kisses on the forehead and even wanted to hold him! Things could be a little interesting when a baby comes to our house in a few months and doesn't leave but for now it's adorable!


Hayden sleeps in some of the strangest positions. He often gets his legs stuck in the bars of his crib, but this was the wildest one we've seen yet! I'm not sure how he falls asleep!


My 26th birthday was great! I know I'm a year older but that means wiser too, right?! I'm so grateful for my family and friends that made my day special. I was showered with phone calls, texts, cards, presents, cake, flowers and the works! Thanks everyone!

Josh and Me before going out that night

I am in LOVE with my new present

It's my birthday and Christmas but Josh let me have it before Halloween when it arrived so that I could start using it! It's awesome!!

some of my friends took me out to the Cheesecake Factory for some yummy cheesecake

too funny not to share!

Hayden LOVES it when Josh plays little piggy's with his toes. His favorite part is the WEE WEE WEE at the end. He asks for more and more. My favorite part is at about 14 seconds when he notices that I have the camera. I was dying laughing but tried to control it since I was holding the camera!

sorry you have to turn your head I don't know how to rotate a video.

Here are a few of the things that we have been doing this fall

playing at the park

when I was getting all of our fall and halloween stuff out I put this witch hat on Hayden and he loved it! He would walk around the house putting it on and taking it off saying hat. It was too big so it would fall over his eyes but he thought that was funny. He's so much fun!

making and eating fruit loop necklaces

And of course playing in the leaves!

This year for Halloween Hayden was a Ninja. Josh always told me that I needed to find a Ninja outfit for Hayden because he had one when he was little. So when I saw this one on sale last year I had to get it! Josh said it was excatly what he imagined!

Our cute little Ninja

Hayden and I went trick or treating at the mall with some of our friends for playgroup. Hayden was so cute! He walked to each table and handed them his ticket then they would put the candy in his bag and he would wait for them to hand the ticket back to him. It was so fun!

On Halloween we decorated a Haunted House. It didn't exactly turn out like the picture on the box! The frosting kept running and none of the candy would stay in place. That night we went tick-or-treating to a few friends houses and our neighbors.
