rolling dough, opening pjs, and playing with his presents :)

a two year old..

December 28th... Hayden. my baby... turned two...

can you believe it?! I... me!!! I have a two year old.  People weren't kidding when they said he will grow up to fast...

We had a quiet little family day with him on his birthday.  It is tricky doing anything real big since his bday is so close to Christmas and that our family is so far away.  But he had a fun day and we all loved celebrating our new little man.

 Cory and I blew up hundreds of balloons.. ok not hundreds but 40..and filled Hayden's hallway with them.  He thought it was pretty amazing :)

 After getting him dressed and ready for the day, he lined all his dinosaurs up(and of course D-O-G) to see the balloons :)

 His birthday cake..

 Cory took Hayden to the pet store for a little daddy, buddy bonding time on his birthday.. and I finished the cake.  Hayden loooves spending one on one time with his daddy :)
 I made his favorite dinner...meal.. of all time.  Pancakes.  Not to toot my own horn, but I make a pretty spectacular pancake...*beep beep*
.....with home made syrup....
...just sayin

 Finally present time... Hayden the little stink, is one spoiled little boy.  Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents mailed us packages for him to wrap and open on his birthday. :)

 His very own tool set!  He is my little handy man all around the house :) He finds things to fix that I didnt even know needed fixing :) He is so helpful...
 We had a "skype" party with Gma Tracy, Aunt Mandi and Uncle Trav.. Skype is a wonderful thing :)
Here he was showing Gma his tools :)

 whoa... that's a big bite dude...
 ..well there it goes

 ...yup you got it all in
 ...just a little frosting left.  go big or go home I guess :)
 I wanted to get a pic of him in the tub with a number 2 on him.. because he turned 2 and I did that on his 1 birthday (Im sure he will looove pics in the tub with a 16 on his chest one day)
but he insisted on not the 2 but the letter "I"

 I tried the 2 again... and well...
 ... he wasnt happy about it. hahahaha
I love this face.. hahaha "Please for the love mom! I dont want that number 2 on me!"
 gross! He is such a tease, he drinks the water on purpose!!! because he knows it grosses me out..

 ohhh that big smile is the cutest ever..

 I snapped pictures like crazy at this point, mid laugh and that resulted in the following...

I know huh?!  I could kiss that dimple right off him!

He had a great birthday.  It was all about him so that had to be good right? :) Plus he got a bigillion more cars, puzzles, tools, movies, books, clothes :) hes a lucky boy to have so many people love him so much.


Ho! ho! ho!!

We were very blessed this Christmas.  Santa came :) and it was so fun watching Hayden light up about all his presents.  We read his scriptures(the comic book looking ones) and "The Friend" every night before bed so he is familiar with Jesus.  But it was a neat experience talking to him about the baby Jesus.  I feel very humbled that Heavenly Father is letting me take care of one of his most special spirits and that I get to teach him.

 Opening Christmas Pj's
 Using his "muscles" to open it :) 
(that is his Im using my muscles face)
 how freaking cute is that robe?!

 These are the nativity blocks I made for our family.  Then kids can play with them and can learn about the nativity story.  And I dont have to worry about my nice one getting smashed into a million pieces.  Im all about the win-wins in life :)

 In his new Pj's just waiting to see if Santa came...
Side notes:  He wears that back pack. all. the. time.  the boy is obsessed with cars, trucks, etc.  he has to many to carry, so he carts them around in his back pack :)
Also, about the gate... Hayden is awesome at opening doors... yay? So to prevent early morning havoc while mom and dad might still be sleeping we put the gate up. 

 I love his little face looking at his kitchen for the first time. :)

 the kitchen came with 101 pieces of food....
one hundred.....and sounded like a good idea at the time... but 101 pieces all over the floor is not pretty.  at least Hayden loves it? right?  
In this pic he is signing "cracker" to Cory...

 licking the ice cream cone :)
 ...and then letting daddy have a taste :)
 coolest helicopter ever!
 checking his stocking

 we all had an amazing Christmas.. and if you cant tell from this picture, he had a great time :)

 Mack could very well be one of his most favorite toys
 ...with Lightening in his trailer of course :)
 hes walking like a dinosaur, hahahaha our neighbors love it Im sure...

 This is his new Christmas suit from Grandma Tracy.. hello GQ! He looks so big and handsome in it.  you cant see because his hand and ice cream is in the way, but! there is a pocket square that matches his tie!!! He is to die for in it..
