Things Hayden likes to do...

Stroller rides to the park are definitely in Hay Hay's top 5!

Hayden enjoys working on Aunt Ash's laptop... She even knows how to use the mouse!

Riding on her dad's shoulders is super fun... Notice the hair handles!

Hayden likes to bake!

Shoes are one of her favorites things to play with.

Hayden loves to play with anything after her bath... I think it's to stall, so she doesn't have to go to bed!

Hayden likes to go see Tor Tor dress up for dances!

She loves to go watch her Daddy play soccer!

She loves to pull the toilet paper off of the roll! Can you tell she just got caught doing this?

Pumpkin Patch

Hayden picked out her first pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch! It was cute for pictures, but probably not the best thing to take a 9 month old to :) She wasn't very interested in anything except getting down to the grass so that she could eat it!

First Haircut 10/17

Here is Hayden's before her haircut. You can see how much she needed one!

Here she is during her cut... She was really relaxed and didn't seem to mind at all.

Here she is after with Diane! Hay Hay says, "Thank you, Ms. Diane! I love my new do!"

9 months already?!

Hay Hay is 9 months old! Actually, she turned 9 months on October 6th... Chip and I ordered pizza that night and gave Hayden a crust and she was in love! The girl loves all food! She is not picky. If it is big girl food, then she is a fan! At her nine month check up, everything was great. She is still taller than she is wide, which is a good thing for all girls :) She is in the 25-50th percentile for weight and in the 50-75th percentile for height (I can't remember her numbers at the present moment).

Aggies, weddings, and the flu

Since I last posted, college football started. We have been to two Aggie football games so far. Hayden stayed at BB and DD's with her cousin, Maddie for the first game. They had a lot of fun. Hay didn't know what to do with their big dog, Cocoa. Our animals don't get quite that close.

"I love my big cousin!"

After dropping Hayden off, driving to College Station, watching half of the game and many, many drinks later Chip thought it would be a good idea to get in a foot race. Since he was wearing flip flops, he thought it better to just wear no shoes. On your mark, get set, go... Chip, Steve, and Andy take off through the parking lot at Kyle Field. It did not end well for Chip. He somehow took a nasty fall. I am pretty sure something jumped up and tripped him while everyone was blinking all at the same time :) I didn't turn around quick enough to catch the fall on film, but you can hear Missy scream and Chip say something when he falls. Good thing he had been drinking to endure the pain that night. The next day (and for many weeks to come) he was not so lucky!

In between games we went to Austin for my sister, Ashley's wedding. It was a blast! Congrats to the Rundalls! Hayden is ready for a cousin on her mommy's side now :) And Hay was the cutest little flower baby! Would you believe that I did not take a single picture? I know I am a bad mom! Here is pic of her at the rehearsal!

Less than two weeks later Hayden got the flu! It was the worst thing that Chip and I have ever been through. Watching your little baby suffer and just cry and look at you like, "Why aren't you helping me feel better?" Luckily, we took her to the doc early on and found Tamiflu and got her well in 6 days. I thought I knew sleep deprived... now, I do!
Poor sick baby! Still trying to smile with a 103.2 temp

Then, we had another wedding. Hay Hay sat this one out with her Grandma. Chip and I had a great time at this one too! Congrats Brittany and Kirk!
