We Are a Happy Family...

Hayden is 6 weeks today! I love my little family. Hayden has been the best thing I have done in my life. I love him so much. I can't believe how big he is already. Pregnancy was so hard and so not fun and I am SOOO glad it’s over. And being a mom is hard and exhausting sometimes. And getting my body (its going to take a miracle, prayer and then an army to get back into my old jeans) and emotions back to "normal" has been a rollercoaster. But I would do it ALL, all over again 500 million times to have Hayden here as part of our family. I don't want to miss one second of his life because he changes so fast.

It was a nice weekend. We all just kinda hung out and chilled. SOO nice since the week before had been utter chaos.

Saturday I went out and got my hair done. I like my hair a lot. No more blonde! I haven't been dark in forever! It’s pretty darn close to my natural color so it will be easy to keep up on. And the cut is super easy and fast to style. But, as nice as it was to get out and do something for me, I missed Hayd terribly. Sunday my Grandma Nelson came over and saw Hayden. It was so neat to see him with one of his Great Grandparents.

Here are some pictures we took this weekend! And yes there is a ton... but what can I say...I'm a proud mommy :)

YAY!! BATH TIME!!!

All clean! :)I love bath time! Mommy(with new haircut and color) and Hayden

Kisses from Daddy




He's smiling more now! I love his cute little gummy smiles. I have yet to catch a big one on camera yet.
*YAWN!*

Cory was impressed wit his picture taking skills, we all happened to be looking at Hayd. :) It is pretty cool...

I narrowed it down- Hayd looks more like Cory when his eyes are closed and looks more like you with his eyes open.

I love love love the 2nd photo (all clean!) you are so a mommy in love! Isn't it wonderful...even on the low days!!!

What are you talking about your hygiene being at the bottom of your priority list? You look fantastic. I know the feeling about the old jeans though. And by the time you fit into them you're pregnant again and the whole cycle repeats itself! But you're definitely right--it's totally worth it.

I am glad you guys had a nice weekend, I wonder how our weekends are going to be once she gets here because we are usually out all weekend long! I love your new family pic! And of course all the ones of Hayden. :)

Your little guy is so cute! I'm glad he's doing better! Time flies too fast, enjoy every minute, but also give yourself breaks so you can be the best mommy you can be!

I'm glad you enjoy my music! I like to have it play while I'm doing stuff too... it's sooo much cheaper than buying cds! It's nice! I guess I never noticed that our timelines were so similar! That is funny. Has anybody ever given you a hard time about having a baby so soon? I remember in our first ward soon after we announced it, some of our friends were like "oh my gosh, that's so soon, you won't have any time together!" And looked at us like we were crazy... But of course I wouldn't have it any other way!
