Cruzin'

video
This video was taken last week. He's gotten much better at it this week! What an amazing little guy!

Haden and Sophie are playing together really well too. We'll try to get a video of that. It's super cute! Sophie will paw at Haden and he just giggles uncontrollably.

I never imagined that adding children to our family would add so much to our lives. There is nothing better than this. We usually get to go wake Haden up together. It's so wonderful and fufilling to see his smile just at the sight of us. I'm so grateful for the blessings and joy that Haden has brought to our lives.

Touchy subject

K. . . please keep in mind that I'm a first time mommy. I don't know what I'm doing and I believe Haden dropped his manual during the delivery process. I can't find it!

So, Haden is now 6 months old. We've been giving him food now. You know, the baby 1st stage stuff. He really enjoys it. We've also cut out all nursing during the day. The rest of the feedings are formula bottles. Here's the problem. . . Haden's poo is different!!! I know this is normal, right? He just hasn't been pooing as much. And it looks like it hurts the poor little guy! Am I crazy that I'm concerned about this. Please help me ease my mind! I thank you in advance. Love you all!

Here's a cute picture for you to see what he's up to this week as well.

The Salon. . . .

IS OPEN!!!

James purchased a hair cutting set. It's really nice. We've had it for about a month now. I've just been too chicken to use it.

My brother in law, Tom--BLESS HIS HEART!!--, was my first guinea pig. He was such a trooper and just guided me along with how the other elders did it while he was on his mission. I must admit, Tom walked away with a stinking good looking hair cut. (maybe he just lies to me when he says it's a good cut though!) But my poor James. . . his hair is so different than Tom's. It still looks good. I just have to get better at the blending as far as his hair goes. I'm really excited though. It turned out pretty well. And he just keeps reminding me that it will grow back. I can try again! I'm so excited.

So, I'll be able to get my hair done because I can save money on my boys' hair cuts.

WAHOOOO!!!

HAPPY HALF-BIRTHDAY

Haden turned 6 months old on 3/12/10. He's such a cute little guy. Caught him waking up!



We went to the doctor that day. He weighs 13 lbs 3 oz and is 26.5 in tall! Scrawny little man! But a happy one. Here's how he likes to take his binky lately! I think it's pretty good for a kid who doesn't really like it anyway :)



Every parent makes mistakes, right. Well, I guess I didn't read correctly and made a good mistake. We should have been feeding him stage one solids since his 4 month appointment. OOPS! Missed that one. We've started now though. He has been enjoying his rice cereal. Now he likes his carrots. We will try beans or squash next I think. I've got to make sure he likes veggies before feeding him sweets.

More Firsts!

We've had quite a few firsts. We skipped one. . . Haden's first rice cereal. He loves his rice cereal! He's done really well with it since day one. . . which was January 19, 2010.



Then he sat up on his own on February 21, 2010. That was in my previous post.
Also on this day he got his first bruise! He got in the way of a cell phone being tossed to it's owner. Here he is with his Uncle Tom. The bruise isn't too visible though.



Now he has cut his first teeth!!!! His first one popped through on March 5, 2010 with the second one following through on the 6th!!



Stay posted for more to come!
