Our Little Man and **Special Announcement**

Hayden is so grown up.  I can't believe he is 9 months now.  It's getting harder and harder to try and stay delusional that he is my "baby."  He will always be my baby but hes not that little newborn baby anymore.  Which is sad and so exciting.  He is in such a fun stage, I have loved every moment with him, but this stage is particularly fun.  But exhausting as well!  He is so so busy!  He is the fastest crawler EVER, and he climbs EVERYTHING, I'm always amazed at what he can pull himself up too.  It's not uncommon for him to have a few little bumps and bruises on his noggin.  He had his 9 month check up and he weighs 21 lbs and 13 oz, and he is 28.75 inches long!  The doctor says he looks great, which I am very grateful for.  He is FINALLY sleeping consistently through the night and is taking consistent naps during the day.  Its so freeing as a mom :)  He is starting table food, but isn't quite sure what to do with it, so he gags...a lot. Cory has a TERRIBLE gag reflex and I'm pretty sure Hayd has it too.  But he loves food(obviously from his cute chubby cheeks), he loves the little baby cereal puffs, and the yogurt bites, but HATES the baby cheeto like things.  He is great at using a sippy cup now and he has a big boy car seat now!  Holy crap, was finding "the perfect" car seat ever an adventure.  He is also into making all these funny faces now too.  I dont know if he just figured out he can or what but it's so funny.  The one he does the most is making his mouth into a perfect little "o."  He does it all the time, when he's excited, when someone new comes in the room, snack time, all the time! :)  He also loves playing with his basketball hoop, which uncle Trav is pretty happy about.  Here are some fun pictures I took today and some funny ones from a few weeks ago. There is a ton soooo be aware.  But I couldn't help myself NOT to post them.  So look and scroll down, cause you know I got more to say, including a special announcement. :)



This one is my favorite!  I love his little smile and his cute little spikey hair.



Shooting some hoops!

Things aren't always happy at our house... particularly when I don't let him play with things like electrical sockets and cords... I know. I'm so mean.
 
 

Playing with stickers :)
 

I thought this was kinda funny, his chubby little belly and belly button was collecting all of his formula dribbles.
 

This is a possible Halloween costume, I haven't decided yet between this and one more.
Anyway! This is a cute cousin picture with Eli :)
 

Also, good news from our house! I know its about time right :) Cory got a job and has started training with Quest. Its such a great job and I feel very blessed. About 400 people interviewed and there is only 21 in his training group.  It has benefits, great incentives and Cory will rock it! He will work in the call center and help people with their questions and bills and also try and sell packages and such that Quest offers. He will do great. I am very proud of him working so hard at work and also starting school back up. We have been apart since the end of June, with trips going back and forth from Texas and now Idaho Falls. I am so so soo grateful that this is almost over. Hopefully we will be able to find a cute, little apartment sooner than later and move on with this new chapter in our lives.

Hayden didn't want daddy to leave this time unless he made sure he went with him


I have started a Medical Transcription program that I LOVE! It's all at my own pace which is great. I am planning on being done in January. It will be so nice to be able to make some money but be able to stay home with Hayden. It's also a great option to have to always fall back on. When we get settled I want to finish up my 4 year degree in Special Education with a focus on Autism. But this is such a great stepping stone for our family. I am also seriously going to make a effort to get this baby chub off of me. I don't know whose chubbier sometimes me or Hayd. :) Honestly...It is seriously going to be so hard. I have a major sweet tooth, I love to bake and eat treats. All kinds. I also love to cook, but not all of it is always healthy. But I want to be healthier and feel better about myself. So exercise and self control here I come! Ill keep you posted on my progress. Any words of wisdom from anyone would be great!

I wish it wasn't so HECKA fafafafreeeezing outside so I could go on more walks with Hayden. I can't believe how cold it got all the sudden. I have been delusional thinking I'm going to be able to have a few more days to go to the park. ya...uh NO! So if anyone knows of some good outings for winter time, PLEASE, let me know. I really want to do a girl, mommy, kiddo luncheon date sometime, where anyone and everyone can come. I thought everyone could bring a snack or treat or food or something to the park and everyone could chat and visit and the kids could play, BUUUUT now its to cold for that. L-A-M-E!! So anyone else have any good ideas to help execute my plan?! I don't know about you but during the winter and cold months I HAVE to get out or I go nuts!

And as far as the SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!! I am making our blog private on Oct. 11th.  My other "believe in pink," blog will be up and going also within the week.  So with that being running and all the freaking WEIRDOS out there, I need to keep my family safe. I still have that post from forever ago with all your emails.  But if you want to make sure I have it post it again or look here at the old posts comments to see if your email is there, so you can stay up to date with the Hamilton Happenings :)
(and you better not have thought the "special announcement" was that I was pregnant...I have definitely not forgotten how awful pregnancy was and am NOT planning on being preggo again ANY time soon.  Ugh... I want to throw up just thinking about it all again...hopefully in 3 years I will have forgotten, feel bad for Hayden cause he will need a "friend," or just have lost my mind)

So that's a Hamilton update. :) Hope everyone is well and staying warm and toasty. Can't wait to hear and see everyone's fun Halloween and fall festivities!

That's my favorite picture too! waterbabe51@gmail.com
I went private after reading your past blog post. I do feel a lot safer posting with a private blog. It's never 100% safe, but it's just that much safer.
PS I did think you might be preggers and that would have been a huge surprise because you have mentioned many times that you aren't quite ready yet! Good luck w/ your Med. Trans. program!
