I am having such a hard time believing that today my son is 2. He shouldn't be this big yet. He should be a little one in my arms still, not struggling to get out of my arms. He's not supposed to be big enough to tell me what movie he wants to watch or what he wants to eat. He's supposed to still be little!
Hayden was born Monday May 14, 2007 at 5:43p.m. His due date was supposed to be May 10, but he was really comfortable and didn't want to leave the warmth and safety of my tummy. My Doctor decided to not give him too much time to come on his own because she was afraid that he might be a big baby. And boy was she right! His birth weight was 9 pounds 3 ounces and 20.5 inches long. I didn't have a c-section, but before it was over I felt that I wasn't going to make it and was just about ready to give up. That's when my little boy made it into the world, a little blue and not crying at first. There was a brief moment where the doctor was concerned before he made it out, but once they put the oxygen on him, he pinked up really quickly and started crying. He even peed on the doctor before she could hand him off. He was the most precious baby I had ever seen. I know every mother feels that way about her own, but it was so true to me. I have never been happier that I was to see that little man. I knew then that life would never be the same.
Here's Hayden the day he was born with Craig's Grandmother.
And today he's 2! I can't believe it. He's weighs over 25 pounds and almost 3 feet tall!! He loves fruit, Cars the movie and trucks! He loves to wear his boots, although he's outgrown his latest pair. I guess he hill have to get a new pair for his birthday again this year. John Deere boots are all the rage! He loves to push his bike and 4wheeler around instead of riding them. He is always wanting to help whenever daddy works on the trucks or lawn mower. It's amazing how in just two short years one little baby can grow into an amazing little toddler. He's so sweet and loves to give hugs and kisses. He says quite a few words, but still is only putting small sentences together. I know that soon he will be talking up a storm and I will have to tell him to be quite. His smile just lights up my heart. I never knew that I would be such a sucker! He's got me hooked!
Here's a few of my little boy and how he's grown...
11 days old
And this is my little boy now with his new bike he got for his birthday. He's come a long way, baby! I love you little man.
