First Rangers Game!

Hi everyone! Today was a big first for Hayden - his first major league baseball game! We watched the Rangers beat the Twins 10-0 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Even though Nate and I cannot claim to be huge baseball fans, it was still so much fun to share this experience with our son. We went with a few other families from my moms group and the babies were all really sweet and well behaved, and pretty intrigued by everything going on around them. Here are a few photos from the day:

Frequent Flier

Photobucket Photobucket

Hi everyone! We just returned from a trip to Denver - Hayden's 6th plane trip I believe in his 8 short months. Let's see - he has been to Ohio three time on a plane, to Wisconsin, and to Denver twice. Wow, he is my little frequent flier and he is SO good on the plane. The trip to Denver is only an hour and a half, and Hayden slept almost the whole flight both ways. When he wasn't sleeping he was making friends with the people sitting in the row behind us, or jumping up and down on his daddy's lap, squealing with delight. We had two people tell us that he is the best baby they've ever had the pleasure to fly with :)

When he's not on a plane though, he is major trouble ;) Right now he is trying to "help" me type. He is busy and is very into making funny noises. He is experimenting with his voice. There were several times this weekend when he clearly said the word "mama", but I'm not sure if he was just stringing a few syllables together that he had just learned and that were fun to say, or if he really was trying to get my attention. He was looking right at me 3 different times when he said it, so I have faith that he was calling for me :) We'll see if he keeps using this word.

Dallas Arboretum

Last weekend we headed to the Arboretum with my mom's group and had a blast. That is one of the most beautiful places I have been to in a long. There are huge gardens filled with so many colors and varieties of flowers. The azaleas and tulips were in bloom, and the weather was picture perfect - sunny and 80. The Arboretum is situated on the shores of White Rock Lake and it's just really picturesque - it makes me take back everything I've said about Dallas not being as pretty as other places we have lived. Here are some photos of Hayden that I took while we were there.
