Awww Man! Hayden is sick! We almost made it through the entire season without one cold. Not even one! I just knew he wasn't acting like himself and I even told Greg at dinner that I'd bet him $100 that Hayden would wake up in the middle of the night. And sure enough, he did! He's all feverish, snotty, runny eyed, sneezing, and coughing. I hate it when he's sick, it doesn't happen very often but he's just so pitiful. Today is a jammy day. He's resting in his recliner with Buzz and Woody. I pray that Greg doesn't get sick because he's such a baby when he has a cold.

So, I had a fantastic Birthday yesterday. Thanks to all who sent cards, called, or came by. I truly had a great day. I had a hard time when I turned 25, I just didn't take it well. But, I've come to realize that the older I get the more time I get to spend with my adorable little boy. And 26 isn't so bad. My sister came by and and brought me flowers and took me to lunch. Then my friend Candice and her sweet, adorable 3 week old little girl came over and we hung out and had a glass of wine. Greg got home and we went to PF Chang's (our 2nd favorite restaurant) and it was wonderful. Even Hayden was good! I even got a couple presents from my sweet husband. I really had a great day!
Then, at about 1:30 a.m. Greg and I woke up to the sound of Meko freaking out at our sliding doors in the bedroom. I leave the screen door open so if Meko needs to go out in the middle of the night all I have to do is open the sliding doors and not go all the way outside. Well, never again will I do that. Greg gets up to look and see what he's barking at and he says, "It's just a cat, Meko chill out." So, I get up and look and say, "Hon, that's no cat, it's a raccoon." This ginormous raccoon had knocked over the dog food container and was chowing down on some food. We tried everything to get him to go away. Finally, Greg goes and gets the broom and barely opens the door and was poking the raccoon to get it to go away. It finally did and Greg ran out and shut the screen door and we went back to sleep. When we woke up this morning the first thing Greg said was, "I can't believe there was a raccoon on our porch", and I said "I can't believe you thought it was a cat, your an idiot! " We had an exciting night!
Today I have been living with a heathen. Hayden has been horrible. He refuses to take a nap and that doesn't make me happy. He throws things, hits, and destroys everything he touches. He's spent most of the day in time out and it's not working. I'm at my wits end, I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm open for any suggestions anyone out there in blog land might be able to offer.
Anyway, sorry there are no pictures. I'll try and take some soon!

1 year 3 months and 4 days ago
3 months and 4 days agoToday (a few days ago, but you get the point)
By the way, I had nothing to do with the outfit he has on. This is the day he insisted on dressing himself. Aren't those shoes just adorable! I found them at pollywalks.com

If my back yard wasn't a giant mud puddle I would let Hayden play in it. Hopefully, it won't rain again for a week. Thankfully, we did get a couple hours this morning outside. Hayden and I played with bubbles for at least an hour. He has also discovered worms and bugs, his new favorite thing. He's definitely all BOY, he picks them up and plays with them in his hand. It's really gross. My camera batteries are dead and I forgot to charge them. I'm sure he'll play with bugs again.

I just entered to win a $400 Williams-Sonoma Gift card on a site that I frequent often, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. I really really really want to win this. So please keep your fingers crossed that I do. We'll know later tonight.
Wouldn't it be nice if I could spend some good quality time with this...
In the meantime, I'll keep dreaming.

I wish I had tons of exciting news to share. But, we live a pretty boring life. We didn't do anything all weekend, it was still raining. We watched the Tarheels get their butts beat in basketball. It was such a bummer and Greg is still mourning our loss. Hopefully he'll get over it soon. Greg did try and teach Hayden how to play Xbox.
It rained all weekend and Hayden stood on the screen porch begging to go outside. He even ran out a few times and we had to chase him. He thinks he can just put on any shoes lying around and go on out.
Potty Training 101 is in full force and I am not having fun. I don't like it. I wish the doctor had handed me an instruction manual when we had Hayden. I feel like I'm flying blind. Although, he's doing surprisingly well. He loves his big boy underwear and he knows what it means to keep them dry. We've had only one pee accident since yesterday morning but tons of the other kind. I can change dirty diapers and it doesn't bother me one bit. But, I don't like #2 stinky underwear at all. You have to wash them out and that's just not for me. I've thrown away 2 pair already since yesterday because I'm a wimp. Since our nap time fiasco today, we are in pull-ups. Wish us luck, we'll need it!
Greg has started working a lot again since the store opens in the middle of the month. We went and saw the new store on Saturday and it looks really good. I like it better than the Durham store.
Wish I had more to report.
That's all for now.
