another great find and such...

ok so I really am getting behind on this blogging stuff. But cut me some slack people! Cory has been gone for 8 weeks! That why Ill look something similar to this when he gets home:

But only 10 more days till he gets home! And he will stay for a week, and then go back for 2 or 3 more weeks... And then we are done, done with the leaving, coming back, and Texas nonsense for the summer. and THEN... its off to Idaho Falls, finally. Good grief. Now to figure ot where we will live there, that's probably important. Apartment? House? Town home? Rent? Holy smokes, Im blocking that out for now... SOOO...While Cory is back we are going here:

Ummm, I’m so ridiculously excited I can barely stand it. I might be a little sick to leave Hayden for 2 whole nights(thanks mom for offering to stay with him)... but it will be so fun for it to just be Cory and I in Salt Lake, away, not having to talk about poo, and boogers, and spit up, and how much Hayden is totally the cutest little guy ever.(c'mon you know it’s true.)
Side note: Anyone know of any delicious Sushi restaurants in Salt Lake, other than the "Happy Sumo?" Sushi is a MUST on this little get away.

So my other "Believe in Pink" blog is coming, I swear... Hayden is just so so busy! He rolls from here to there and everywhere and is into everything! I am so amazed at how fast he can roll. When he crawls, which is super soon... I am in soooo much trouble. And hallelujah! I’ve informed the tooth fairy already, but he finally cut his 2 teeth at the same time! No one was happy here for weeks until they finally decided to show their cute little white heads..He turned 7 months yesterday *tear* he’s not my baby baby anymore.. I’ll get some new 7 month pictures up soon along with my blog numero dos up and going...

Until then: Look at ONE, cause I have many, of my favorite blogs: If only these two "shes" knew how much I adore them...

also, look at this post by "she one" :)

freaking hecka hilarious... I’m so getting one of those towels, or like 20 and I love the basket from Pier1...

Dirt and Giggles

I found this cute girls blog and she came up with these cute cute shirts! I wish Hayd was old enough to wear one now! I'd love a girl one too, but I probably have to have a girl first... and that is happening nooooo time soon. Cory will be pregnant before I will at this point :)
I thought they were darling and would share my fun find.

Here is her post about the shirts:
And here is her cute blog:

she also has a ton! of cute vinyl stuff. I wish I could be that creative :)

Lame or not lame?

So I really want to get that whole blog for women... thing... place... whatever underway. If anything I am selfish and I need it for me. Especially with Cory gone I need to have some kind of out...That isn't baking or cooking. When I'm stressed I bake. Im trying to get rid of this baby gut, all the baking isnt helping. I have thought of a few names for the blog but I found this quote:

♥ I believe in pink, I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. -Audrey Hepburn

So what about the name "I believe in pink." Or "believe in pink." hmmmm what do you think? Im still trying to think. But I love, LOVE that quote. I adore Audrey Hepburn.
The blog will be about mommy things, girly things, fashion things, awesome find things, fun things, random things, cooking things, crafty things, possibly controversial things, empowering women things, baby/kid things, all sorts of things...I think it would be great to have a place for women to laugh, cry, debate, set up play dates and girl days, give opinions, discuss, chat, be inspired and uplifted, confess, etc... Especially for me....

So what do you think. I believe in pink/believe in pink. Lame? Not lame?

Already? I might cry....

Hayden turned 6 months on June 28th and had his 6 month check up the next day.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already. It is so amazing how much they change and grow up. I am so pathetic; whenever I think about him growing up I totally want to cry. I always joke that he will get no older than 5 and will love me forever and never think I am un-cool or weird. I will always be amazing and almost magic. I will never be embarrassing, but the most hip, fun mom ever. He will never be old enough to have a girlfriend or grow up and move out. He will always adore my kisses that I constantly smother those chubby cheeks with. He will always want to cuddle, lay on my shoulder and give me big hugs....

But tragically I know that him not growing up unrealistic... which is sad but exciting.

Hayden is already learned so much. He is so smart.

He knows how to:
-sit up by himself
-sit up and hold toys, passing them from one hand to the other
-roll from back to tummy and tummy to back
-stand up while having his hands held(he has ALWAYS preferred standing to sitting or laying down. Laying down is no longer an option now that he can sit and stand with help.)
-he moves his feet up and down, in a walking motion while standing.(I seriously about passed out when he did that. If he starts walking before he crawls I’ll die. I am not ready for him to be mobile)
-He pushed up on all fours today for a few seconds.( I was so excited! He started laughing at me when I was praising him so much for his new trick.)
-He can turn himself all the way around in his activity jumperoo.

He is also:
-Curious about EVERYTHING!
-Everything goes right into his mouth and new things are studied meticulously.
-He started saying, "Ma, Ma, Ma." a little over a week ago. He says it all the time :)
-He loves cereal, and squash, and sweet potatoes.
-He just started carrots yesterday...he still isn’t sure about those yet.
-He loves to laugh!
-He loves to pull my hair.
-When I feed him at night he always rubs my thigh back and forth, or plays with my hair or cheek.
-He loves giving hugs right when he wakes up from naps. And he gives big slobbery kisses all the time :)

So my little man is growing up. I am so excited and proud of him. I am trying to cherish everyday with him before he does grow up and go to kindergarten and then one day high school, then leave me to go on a mission, and then finds some pretty girl to be with forever.

I love you bud! Thanks for always slobbering all over me with kisses and making me laugh every day. Love you forever!

Hayd's Stats:

Cory has about 4 weeks left in Texas, at least.
Its going by surprisingly fast. We are all surviving.
We will move to Idaho Falls as soon as Cory gets done.
