Hayden enjoying the birthday cake at the party!
She would roll the ball and then turn and walk away before it would hit the pins. 2 year old attention spans!
Mommy (31 weeks), Nana and Hayden

Last weekend we went to a birthday party for my little cousin Bryanna. It was at Alley Cats bowling alley and it was a lot of fun. Hayden had a great time. It was her first time to bowl and I had not been in years. We started out great but by the end of the party she was over it and threw a huge tantrum in the middle of the games and we had to leave. Oh, the joys of having a two year old, unfortunately you are on their schedule. We had fun anyway fit and all. Daddy didn't get to go because he had to replace a busted water heater. FUN! It busted Monday and we were without hot water for the week. Hayden and mommy went over to Nana and Papa's for showers and daddy just sucked it up... he's crazy! It's all fixed now and we are back to normal. This week and weekend will be fun. I work tomorrow :( Thursday I am going to pick up Hayden's and my dresses for the wedding so that will be fun. Friday I have a Dr. appt and we are doing a sono so we will get to see our little man. Saturday I have a shower thrown by my aunt and cousin so I am really excited about that. After that I don't work until next Saturday and I will enjoy the much needed break. These are some pics from bowling, more to come after our fun week.

30 weeks!

30 weeks and counting! Just 10 more weeks to go, but hopefully more like 8. Friday I was officially 30 weeks and it feels like the last big milestone. I went to the Dr. on Tuesday and everything is going great. I was a little anemic so they started me on iron supplements. Great! That added with the prenatals is just wonderful. Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do. Baby looks good so far, and now I start my every 2 week visits. I go back on the 28th and he is doing a sono so we are very excited about that. My doctor is thinking since I had Hayden a month early that I "shouldn't" go past the 38th week. That is just what he is thinking, not for sure so I hope so. I just want Jack to be healthy and I know he will come when he is ready. The nursery is still a work in progress but it is getting there and I will post pics when it is done. More preggo news later!

Miss Hayden will be 2 years old on the 9th and I can't believe it. I am excited but sad at the same time. It has flown by and I can't believe I have a 2 year old. Her birthday party is going to be very low key. Just close family and we are doing it here at the house with a BBQ and swimming. I know she won't really know anyway but I still have to do a theme. She is really into Minnie Mouse so we are doing hot pink and black with Minnie Mouse decorations. Should be very cute and I hope she loves it. We are entering the terrible two's and it has been rough. She is learning her boundries and pushing them a bit. I really think I am going to have my hands full in October. Oh well, we wouldn't have it any other way and I am just so excited to complete my little family of four. Yes, we are pretty sure this is it and we will be done. More later and I hope everyone has a good week.

Walnut Springs

We hung out in the front yard a lot and Hayden played in her little pool.
She ended up naked in the pool by the end of the day. It was so hot anyway I wished I could jump in with her.
Poor Bo! That cat got so many hugs and loves from Hayden and he was so good with her. She just loved him. Mimi got her those cool new Mickey Mouse sunglasses which she hardly took off. He is her idol after all :)

Several weeks ago Hayden, my mom and I went to Mimi and Grandaddy's house for the weekend. It was so nice and relaxing. We just hung out outside, talked, and laid back. We went for two nights and Hayden had a blast. She always likes going there because they have two kitties that she can not stop messing with. Luckily the kitties love her too and allow her to play with them and hug them constantly. Here's a few pics from the weekend.

Busy Summer!

I have not posted in so long... we have been super busy this summer. Not only preparing for a new baby but my brother is getting married in October and we have showers and parties and shopping. Lots of fun and no complaints here because it has made this pregnancy fly. I am 28 1/2 weeks and can't believe it. Everything is going beautifully with the pregnancy. Jack is growing and moves like crazy which kind of scares me because I wonder if that is how his personality will be. Hayden is already a busy kid so to have two like that is going to be crazy. Oh well, we wouldn't have it any other way. We have been getting the nursery ready and fixing up Hayden's room at the same time. She has a big girl bed now and her room is really really cute. I will post pics when we get farther with the nursery. We have been in organization mode at our house. We had a garage sale and cleared out a lot and have totally organized our closets and my holiday decorations that used to be in the guest room which is now Jack's room. Oh my gosh, it was very overwhelming but it is getting there. I want to have my house straight before my sis n law's shower here on the 15th. We literally have something every weekend until the baby comes, and I am working a couple of days during the week as long as I physically can. Not to mention Hayden will be two in a month so I am planning her birthday. WOW! I love this time in our lives and if this is our last I want to enjoy it as much as possible. I also want to spend as much time with Hayden as we can before we have two to share our attention with. I still feel like she is little and needs me so so much. I feel a little guilty sometimes but this is how we wanted it, two years apart. Anyway, lots going on at the Tennison's and much more to come in the next couple of months. We are so excited to meet our baby boy and can't wait until he is here. Hope everyone has a good week!
