Hayden did so great on the plane. He barely cried at all-- only when he was hungry. I tried to schedule his feeding for take-off and landing, but it didn't work out that way. When he's hungry, he's hungry. The engine noise lulled him to sleep and Mommy and Daddy were able to watch a movie. Other than the airline breaking our stroller, it was a good trip. Luckily, we will be compensated for our loss. Even gate checking isn't fool-proof.
Mommy went to get her hair done so it was just daddy and Hayden this morning. It looks like they had a great time together. After Mommy got home Hayden had fun looking at his books while Mommy read to him. He also LOVES bringing his legs up to look at his feet.
I've been collecting some videos of Hayden this week and trying to pick the best ones. So here we are from Hayden being in his bumbo, to his boppy, and back to his bouncy. You can listen to the music on the bouncy and understand how those songs become embedded into my brain so easily that I'm humming them in the shower. Hayden is getting really great at lifting his chest up and has even had some full-on giggles when he was on his changing table and Daddy was tickling him. They were pretty unmistakable so we entered his first laugh into the baby book. Any small giggles before this were hard to tell if he was just cooing or making noise.
I didn't realize I could post these, until someone did on my birth club board. We had a good time getting our pictures taken last weekend. I had hoped we would have gotten a couple more smiley pictures of Hayden, but there will be plenty of time for that. I wanted to have a fall look for our pictures so we (especially me) got a little warm in that small studio room. We had a different outfit for Hayden to go home in. Here are out favorites:
Happy Birthday Grandma! Yesterday I upgraded my bottles and now I don't have to work so hard to eat. Mommy has been working hard with me on my neck muscles and Daddy has been making some weird and funny faces to get me to laugh. I haven't let out a big giggle yet, but I give him big smiles. Mommy got my formula for the plane ride so we don't have to go through too much hassle at security. I can't wait to see you and Grandpa! Love you!
Hayden is now 3 months old already! Wow time flies! I took my own measurements and he weighs 16 lbs. and is 25 3/4 inches long. Hayden was 9 lbs. 6 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long at birth. We are definitely developing a sleeping through the night pattern as he hasn't woken up before 6 am for almost a week.
