Memory Lane

Now that Tim and I are considering starting this baby thing all over again, I am realizing there are a few things I would like to do or at least start before I have to do them between bouts of running to the bathroom to puke. (However since everyone says every pregnancy is different, I am really hoping not to get as sick next time around. I would even be happy if it ends at 20 weeks!! and doesn't come back. 7 months of constant puking was too much! I even threw up 3 times the day he was born! Anway just throwing that in for Luck.) I really want to finish some things, like his quilt, baby quilt, that is. The thing i really want to finish the most before the next baby is hayden's baby scrapbook. So, I have been organizing and getting ready to print all of his pics since birth that I want to use for the book, whoo, what a project it has been. Going through all his pics is reminding me of the time when he was just so little. So I decided I would take a little trip down memory lane.......where do these days go????

I am so glad he has come to actually really enjoy bathtime, cause for a while it was the most miserable thing for him, as you can see.
Sigh. oh goodness he was such an amazing baby!

He still pouts that lip! and we still can't help but to turn our face away from him and laugh!

Love his little smile! He has always been so happy.

This pic still cracks me up. If only I knew what was going through his mind at that time.

My heart aches for these sweet days gone by, and rejoices for the exciting stuff to come.

I can honestly say I have no regrets from Hayden's infancy. I spent hours just holding him, despite people saying not to, because it would "spoil" him. I knew the times when it would be fine, and when it would be better to let him be. I am so blessed to be able to stay home with him the first 6 months, and been able to keep him with me while I work babysitting. I for sure miss those days, but also am LOVING watching this toddler turn into an amazing little boy. With all that said, I look forward to hopefully, Lord willing, holding another little one for hours, just staring at them, knowing that they grow up SO FAST!
