Sutherland Ladies

Oh how Hayden loves those beautiful Sutherland ladies!! They just dote all over each other...Sloane and Hayden have quite the hugs and kisses down. She just loves all over him and says "He's so cute!". How sweet is that! Sophie is so good with Hayden, teaching him all sorts of things...from rolling over, practicing words, brushing hair-you name it. We have loved our play dates this summer and are really bummed that we won't get to see them every day once school starts back up. Here are some pictures from when I taking care of the kids one afternoon.


Hayden went to his first circus and did really well. We had pretty good seats so I think that is what helped hold his attention. The tricks that they perform and have the animals do are amazing! I think our favorite acts were the motorcycles in the ball (they had 7 in there at one time) and the elephants. I can't believe all of the tricks they can teach the elephants...pretty amazing! The lady that was working the elephant photo area let me take extra pictures of Hayden since we purchased one. He was hamming it up...enjoy!

Comfort Visit

We went to Comfort (Brittany's hometown) for the July 4th weekend. We had so much fun-thank you to Lou and Warren for their hospitality!!! Hayden was able to see pigs up close for the first time and to see a horse for the second time. He was SO scared of the pigs. When he was around the horses he would tense up, but he constantly wanted to go and see them. He LOVED the wagon rides down the road with Presley. That Saturday we went to the parade downtown-another first for Hayden. He loved seeing the firetrucks and was constantly wanting to walk down the road. By the end of the parade he was so hot and tired that we needed to head home so he could cool off and get some rest.
Thanks for sharing your hometown with us was a blast!

New Tricks

This is one of the newest tricks (and a no-no in our house) from our little man. He loves standing up on the couch and then bouncing down on his bottom. He is getting to be quite the daring soul-he was straddling the arm of the couch the other day. He knows that he can sit on the couch but not stand or right before he does it, he gets this grin on his face and laughs.
Oh-what are we going to do with him?!?!Another new trick that is equally as dangerous but scares me so much more
that he has started doing is......
Ugh. I was so afraid that he would learn to do that. Now every time he makes a peep in his crib I am off and running to make sure he is not making an attempt to get out.

Bubbles, Balls, Mema, and Nana...some of H's favorites!

Hayden and I went to Uvalde for the night. Nana got him some bubbles and balls to play with while we were there...a key to Hayden's heart. Here are some of the pictures of them playing.
