another thing i don't ever want to ever forget......Angie and Chase took a little vacation to Mexico and Mimi and Papa went to Frisco to stay with Hayden and Haley......oh my goodness, i am not used to chasing around a 1 1/2 year old all day! But some of the SWEETEST times ever with that sweet baby boy! Waking up with him is the BEST....of course i remember the same thing with Addy and Avery - such precious memories i have waking up with those two little girls! Okay, so the first morning, i hear Hayden on the monitor - as i walk in the room, he's standing up in his bed hanging on to the rail - he grins that precious little grin at me and then he starts making a "kissing" noise - he's calling Allie! I guess he's heard me do it and he was calling her. Oh how he loves that dog! He chases her around, gives her sugar on her nose.....pulls her fur for all he's worth - but she's a good sport and never a peep out of her....well with the exception of two times when he pulled her tail really hard.....i heard a little growl. We spent a lot of time outside.....and he picked tiny little flowers and handed them to me, one by one. Oh little boys know how to win their mimi's heart! Now here's the thing that melted me......changing Hayden's diaper is like wrestling a cat in a bag.....he's twisting and turning from the moment you lay him down.....it's REALLY hard......so, Angie started singing to him. For some reason, as you start singing, he calms down and listens. (oh and i must say, he loves to sing itsy bitsy spider and he does the little motions with his hands....it's so sweet). So it's close to Halloween and Angie has this cute little song about five little pumpkins that she sings to him, but i can't remember all the words so i sing the ABC song.....and it works! Okay, so the melting part - one afternoon i take him to the changing table and lay him down - all ready with my song and all - but Hayden is SO still......he isn't twisting....no turning.....and he's looking me straight in the eye. All of a sudden, with this sweet little soft voice, HE starts singing! I can't understand ONE word but its the sweetest sound ever.....and if that's not enough, he reaches up with his little hands and he starts doing the spider climb.....oh i want to bottle that moment and visit it often......it was one of the sweetest moments ever and i just melted. Oh how i loved my time with that little boy.....God's blessings are so precious....my grandchildren are some of His sweetest! Thank you Lord for the sweet blessings in my life!
