Our little lady is a rise with the sun kind of gal.. and if you know me, I do not function well before like 9:30 and not until I’ve had my coffee. The past week or so Hayden has been waking up at 6am.. shortly after the sun. Now this would be ok if we were still giving her 2 naps during the day but we’ve cut back to 1 which means that she gets awfully crabby either when we push her nap later.. or when were trying to keep her up til her bedtime, which is 8-8:30pm. Last night we decided to trick her little brain by covering her window with a curtain … and would you look at that it’s 8:40am and shes still sleeping! – And literally right after typing that I hear “mamaaaaa” coming from her room LOL!

Are we really getting ready to enter into JUNE! Holy crap! We’ve got some pretty exciting things happening soon! Starting with babies galore! My baby sissy’s little man Bowen comes July! My friend Teeli’s baby boy, Remington in August! Our cousin Bree’s baby girl in October! My BestFriend Britany’s baby in December! And another baby in January! (I can’t announce from whom yet.. But it’s very exciting! And no, not me!) Seriously, everyone is pregnant!
Now that life has slowed down a bit and we are all healthy I’ll jot down a few things we’ve been up to these past few weeks! Firstly, all of us were awfully sick! Sean with a terrible sinus infection, Hayden with a double ear infection which caused her to spike 103.8 fevers and myself with tonsillitis. It was awful. What’s the only thing about being sick? Having a sick baby and husband. Yikes! Once we all got to the doctors and got on some medications we all felt a whole lot better… And now, were back to 100%!
It’s very hard to put into words how I’m feeling right now… In 5 short days my teeny little baby will turn One! Now, to those who do not yet have children, I’m sure that One just seems like a year… I know that’s how I felt about my nieces and nephews. Yes, it was exciting! They were really starting to show their personalities.. At this age they are all over the place. But to this Momma, it’s a little sad… Where did my little 8lb 13oz baby go? The one who used to love being held by Mommy, be rocked to sleep, be so dependent on me. Now my little hurricane will only sit still long enough for one hug and then its like, “put me down Mommy, I gotta go!” I wish I could pause, just for a moment, keep her a baby just a little longer. But that’s just not how life works now is it? So, I squeeze her just a little tighter and let her down to run wild. I’m so proud to be this little lady’s Mommy, I’m sure I’ve said that before and I’ll probably say it 1000 times again. But I am so very, very proud of this beautiful, joyous, little monster. I hope to never make her doubt how wonderful she is.
