I love being a stay at home mom. But man, I thought I would get a lot more done. I think I got more done around the house when I was working.
So, I find myself trying to catch-up on my blogging again.

Grandma Came to Visit again
I think she likes Hayden, or something, cause she never came down to visit when it was just little ol' me! :)

She can't come without bring the goods:
Hayden trying to be very patient while Grandma got his new train out of the box.

Hayden playing with his new train:
Once in awhile he will chase the train while it is moving, but most of the time he just likes to destroy it. Boys!

Here's a picture of my little Monster:
(Don't be deceived by his cute little face.)

Grandma also got Hayden a walker:
He is loving the freedom of being able to stroll wherever he wants. But, he loves to ride the Lion even more then the freedom.
(I don't have a video, sorry. You ask why? Well I'm good, but not that good. I can't push Hayden and record at the same time. It's not the first time I wished I had more arms, and it won't be the last.)

While grandma was here, Hayden was showing her all of his new tricks.
But one time he got a little too crazy...
(WARNING: This is what happens when you're a "SHOW-OFF")

This last week we went to Seattle for a day (Daddy had a business meeting).
While we were there we visited with my great grandparents: Grandpa and Grandma White.

They took mom and I on a Ferry Ride.
It was an exciting ride. I liked the water, but I LOVED watching the seagulls.

(It was Win-dy).

After visiting in Seattle we went to the Tri-Cities,
where I sat on my throne and wore my crown;
while my grandparents served me and showered me with the most precious toys in all the kingdom.

Hee Haw Farms

On Tuesday, we went to Hee Haw Farms to pick-out our family pumpkin.

Who needs a horse and saddle when you have a tough dad like mine?

What pumpkin would you choose?
I think the cutest pumpkin is right in the middle, wearing a black hat and gloves.
Silly little pumpkin!

"This is the one I want."

"Yep! It's a good one!"

Mom thinks Daddy's tractor's sexy.

"Forget the pumpkin, I found straw!"

"Now that I have it, what do I do with it?"

"Hmm! I've never tasted this before."

"It's a little pokey going in."

"But yep! It's pretty tastey."

Fall is just great!

And this little piggy went "wee wee wee" all the way home!

Hayden Bo-Bayden Update

Not many events have happened around here. Daddy has been super busy with work and school. Mommy and I have been enjoying the last few days of good weather, and I have been just as cute as ever and growing-up SUPER quick.

Here are some of the things I've been doing/learning:

1. I got my first gun
Don't get your panties in a bunch just yet, it's a squirt gun.

Grandpa Warren wanted to get me my first gun and just couldn't wait any longer.

As you can see, Grandpa left me some advice on the back of the packaging.
Grandpa wanted to buy you your first gun. Remember - don't point it at nobody and DON'T put it in you mouth.
Love, Grandpa"

He also left mom some notes on the front. He circled the "Choking Hazard" and "For Ages 3+" and wrote "Jessica, pay no attention to this." and "It's a scare tactic! Don't believe it."

Mom won't let me take the guns out of the packaging, but the packaging is still fun to play with. Thank you Grandpa for the toy and advice!

2. I watched BYU again, but this time with Uncle Nick.
As you can tell, the game wasn't too exciting.
But I'm still a faithful fan, just as long as I have a comfy spot.

And I definatly found my COMFY SPOT!

Uncle Nick was super nice and let me climb all over his lap for a whole quarter!

3. I got STUCK!

4. I've learned the motion of running and I think it's fun!

5. Daddy and I LOVE to put on a show for mom.

(Also, I love the camera.)

6. I HATE avocado.

7. And (you'll never believe this) I've learned to climb the stairs.

Dad was watching me and the TV while mom ran upstairs for something. I wanted to go with mom so I followed her, no big deal right? Wrong! I made it up a whole step before they saw me. When they found me on the stairs they made a HUGE deal about it and made me climb and re-climb the stairs several times while mom recorded. I thought I was SO big to impress the parents like that.

So that's what I've been up to the last couple of weeks! Mom and Dad say I'm growing-up too fast, but I think it's fun to be doing everything that the big kids do!

Nanna Week

Nanna came to visit!
She was here for a week
(September 20-26).

We had a BLAST!
We played hard, ate good, cuddled long, and shopped til we dropped!

She brought lots of goodies...

a Seattle SeaHawks warm-up outfit
from Pops.

a really cool Dinosaur that spits and poops out balls.
(These balls, Roll-A-Rounds, are really entertaining and just the right size).

and a CrAZy bAll that is starting to drive mom crazy.

Blake even brought me a GOODIE (I just couldn't keep it, or eat it)...
He's such a fun Uncle :)

Hayden loves the dinosaur. His favorite part is standing next to his belly and twirling the toys on top. He also enjoys catching the Roll-A-Rounds as they come out of Dino's mouth.
"I can tell that you and I are going to be good friends."

Thank you Nanna for all the treats and for the lovely visit, we already miss you!
