We don't really have a lot going on here. Hayden has just been content playing with his toys. We haven't gone out too much since it's been cold. Hayden went to his first party last Saturday to celebrate his good buddy, Jack Schmickle's first birthday. Hayden also has a second bottom tooth that poked through yesterday. We're on a really good schedule of breakfast and bottle in the morning, play-time, 2 hour nap, play time, bottle, more play time, nap, etc. He goes down great for his naps. I put him in his crib, say goodnight, and he's off to dreamland. He's been really easy the last couple weeks. Night time is a little different the last few nights. It could be his new tooth coming in or that he just wants some reassurance that we're right there. Like anything else, I'm positive this will change in a couple weeks.

After Hayden eats his breakfast I usually will give him something to play with while I get his food put away. He loves this little chipmunk that Josh got him on a business trip. He's eating more and more everyday and has been eating Stage 2 foods for a couple weeks. He is now about 7 and a half months old and growing like crazy.

While Daddy watched football, Hayden and I played upstairs with some of his new toys he got for Christmas. He really likes the Choo Choo train from Grandma and Grandpa and his Roll A Rounds Toys. He can even push the lever on his gum ball machine to have his prize come out.Hayden really enjoys his Roll A Rounds Dinosaur. I can't believe his tiny hands can hold onto the balls that come with it.
Yep, he still stares at the camera when we get it out. He's making it very hard to sneak up on him for cute videos.
We had a rough night before that bath, which consisted of: dinner and bottle, play in exersaucer (I guess he played too hard), spit up carrots, poop up back, bath, spit up more carrots, play with mommy, and then bed.

Hayden is also doing really great at sitting up. In just the last week his balance has improved dramatically. We don't walk away quite yet, but it's great how long he's able to sit up without tipping over. Occasionally he will get excited while playing with his toys and he kicks his legs and starts to fall over backwards.
We all had a great Christmas with everyone and it was such a blessing to be able to share it with many family members and especially to have enough time to visit everyone and not have to worry about getting back on a plane to Florida. We were all pretty worn out when we got home after having 4 Christmas's, but we're all getting back into a routine.
Josh was feeling tired on the way home so he took some pictures while I drove for a while.
We all went to see Obama with my parents and sat in the second row. We both shook his hand and he gave Hayden a little shake too.
Emma having fun playing with Hayden. It looks like she was trying to tickle him. Emma definitely had fun playing with him and his toys.
Hayden sitting up amongst all the gifts from Mima and Papa. He seems very excited to get the show on the road! I think next year will be even better for him.
