too lazy for pictures...

today is hayden's birthday. i just talked to him while i was driving home. that kid is getting big fast. i love him to death. heather put it right when she said he's the perfect combination of naughty and nice. he knows just how to torture his baby sister. and big sister. and big brother. and mom, etc... but he can also be the biggest sweetheart in the world. as he's getting older, it's my personal opinion that he's becoming more nice than naughty. i don't mean to say that he was too naughty before - i don't think he was. but the last few times i've seen him, he's just been such a sweetheart. especially at christmas when he got to meet garrett for the first time. he was hooked (the fact that garrett played wii with him might've had a little to do with it) and just snuggled garrett all of the time. kinda melted my heart away.

i don't have any pictures on my new laptop... else i'd post some. (here's a link to my sister's blog with a few pictures of him...) it's only 8.30ish but we're tired. liz had her baby yesterday and we've been helping out with watching madeline. she's been delightful and i even got to hold the baby a few times. goodness, he's perfect. he sucks in his bottom lip and i swear i could just eat him up. it takes all of my will power to not just sit and nibble on him. the bottom line is, i'm going back over in the morning to watch madeline some more & i don't want to feel sick like i did this morning when i woke up. off track hayley needs naps, and i haven't had one for a few days. and last night was a super late night - so, i think this old lady is going to go to bed & not worry about getting pictures on this new lappy tonight. maybe tomorrow. maybe not. probably saturday for sure.

the bottom line here is: Happy Birthday Hayden! I miss your smile today especially. and Congrats to Liz & Jared - he's perfect!

I know you are happy with that new baby to hold. Get some rest because this is your break and that is what teachers do during time off. Sounds like you are having lots of fun. Hayden was so cute on the phone on his birthday. He was excited.

Are you loving the new laptop? My niece and your nephew have the same birthday (2 yrs apart) how spiffy is that!?
