Ellie really likes books ... mostly to chew on and talk to. Hayden gets her "toy basket" from her room each morning and just dumps it out in front of her ... he said that babies like to have lots and lots of toys. She actually prefers books right now ... mostly to chew on and talk to. He told his teacher that Ellie will not be able to come to school until she'll stop chewing on things ...
We got Hayden's kite out this week ... and spent so much time outside flying it ... he even realized that he could get it in the air by himself, so I was relocated to the porch to watch and ponder the joys and sadness that overcome me when I think about his growing independence.
In other news ... he thinks he is a cowboy ... hence the hat. It rarely comes off. Story below.
Daddy and Hayden confirmed their TOUGH GUY COWBOY status this week with some good old fashion gun decorating and cowboy talk. They had a great time having "shoot-outs," and mommy ended up spending lots of time in the "jail", which was the pantry ... so it was a win-win because I got lots of organizing done!
