Growing pains

Poor little Hayden has been getting some pretty bad leg aches due to growing pains. The other night while he was just sitting on my bed, he just started screaming out of nowhere and was holding his leg. He told me it was hurting again. I tried to logically explain to him why it was hurting. I told him that when we grow, sometimes it aches and hurts. He thought about it and said this through his tears, "I don't want my leg to grow anymore," "I want my leg to stay little." I asked him if he needed anything to make it feel better and he said, "No Mom, I don't need anything." So sweet. I felt so bad for him.

He also told me that he probably ate too many skittles and that he wasn't feeling good. I had just said this a few minutes before that. Too funny.

Growing and growing up can be tough!

Spring Activities

Hayden has had a couple trips down to Thanksgiving point for some fun outings. He first went with my dad to the dinosaur museum. He has been wanting to go for a long time. He only knows what a dinosaur museum is because Caillou (character from his favorite cartoon) goes to one. Hayden loves dinosaurs and enjoyed his time with his Papa. He did have a hard time walking past the stuffed sharks. It took a lot of coaxing from my Dad. I love my Dad and love the fact he took a day off of work to spend time with his little buddy. I have some pictures of this outing but they are on my mom's camera. I will have to get them off at a later time.

I took Hayden down to the petting zoo at Thanksgiving point shortly after that. Of course, when he saw where we were he wanted his Papa. Our friends came with us, so Max was a great companion to have that day. Hayden was so funny with his "feed." While Max was so generous to the animals, Hayden was extremely stingy. I ended up having to secretly throw away half the bag because there was no way he was going to throw the rest to the animals before we left!
Smile! Giddy Up Sheep! I think they were more interested in the fake thing.
Hanging out by some smelly animals.
Buds!My cute little guys.
This was the closest we got to the tulips down at Thanksgiving Point. I didn't want to pay a ton of money to see them, but I would have liked to see more of them. Thanks mom for coming along and helping us out!
Hayden loves riding ponies. Well, I guess it's only his second time, but he likes it.
He wanted to "do it myself." I had to step a few feet back and let him enjoy the ride.Random thought: Have you ever been watching a sitcom or some show on T.V. and always wonder where the baby of the family is all the time? Well, I don't leave that us to the imagination. Here he is. I always try and take some pictures of Teagan even if he doesn't give a crap about where we are or what we are doing.

Teagan 5 months

So, it is the 12th of May and I am barely getting around to blogging about Teagan being 5 months. It was the 24th of April. He is growing so fast. I stepped on the scale and while I will leave the total number off this post I will subtract what I weight and tell you he weighed in at 16.8 pounds. He is very tall too but am not sure the exact measurements. He is just comparatively tall compared to some of the other babies in the area. Teag is sitting up on his own but has decided to forget how to roll. Oh well, not important right? He is very vocal at times and can say "momma" and "dadda." I don't actually believe he knows quite what he is saying yet but when he wants to eat it is definitely the "momma." I love it. He also started taking occasional baths with Hayden. He still loves Hayden sooooo much. He doesn't have to work hard at all to get him to smile or laugh. Teagan just has a look in his eyes when he is looking at someone he loves. He is my little pal. If he can see me, smell me, or just be with me, he is content with everything else. He is a pure mommy's boy. Here are some pictures from his 5 month photo shoot.

Some funny Haydenisms

Hayden has turned into quite the little "almost" 3 year old. He sure keeps me laughing and sometimes frustrated. I still love him more than anything and wouldn't trade him for the world. Here are a couple conversations or things he has told me lately:

Hayden: "I won't poo in the tub mom"
Me: "Thanks"
Hayden: "Because I love you"

Hayden: "I want ice cream"
Me: "Should we go home and get some?"
Hayden: "No, I don't want to go home, I want to go to the ice cream PARLOR!" ???????

Hayen says this quite frequenty now: "Mom, you are NOT my friend. Daddy is your friend, Teagan is your friens, I am not your friend."

Hayden: "You are my best everything."-the friend one came shortly after.

In church he started shouting out while playing with batman that batman needed "booboo's." I kept telling him to please be quite until he resorted to just saying loudly, "boobs, boobs, boobs!"- this is not a much talked topic at our house but I guess feeding Teagan is enough.

Hayden: "Are you happy mom?"
Me: "Yeah, are you happy?"
Hayden: "No, I am frustrated because I want my binkie!" -He often checks to see if I am happy when he knows full well that I am not. This time I was. Also, the binkie has got to go and I asure you it will be gone before his birthday rolls around. It has become such a fight even if he only has it while he sleeps.

He always tells us when stuff is "larlious" - "hilarious."

Hayden: "You want to watch The Office or The Girls (Gilmore Girls)?-He knows what I like!

He informed me the other day that I looked like a Giraffe with all my freckles.

I recently have started putting the boys in the tub together. I have been waiting for this day to come. It makes things a whole lot easier and faster. One day while they were in the tub Hayden said to Teagan, "What's up Homie, What's up Homie Teag?" I thought that was pretty hilarious!

I just love this kid. He comes up with the funniest stuff!
