He finally figured out how to use his arms to push himself up off the floor, and here he is showing off on his play mat. He can't hold himself up for long though, and it takes a lot of effort - so much effort that he fell asleep on me shortly after tummy time.

I hope that everyone had a happy Thanksgiving holiday! I did a little shopping online, and we put up the Christmas tree. Hayden likes to stare at the lights. Today we went into the yard for a few photographs because I liked the shadows being created on the grass. This old carriage is really meant for baby dolls, but I call him my baby doll all the time.

Random knowledge: As a child, my mom's favorite doll was named Nancy. My favorite doll was named Big Baby. I also named my cat "Kitty" although I was so little that it came out as "Tikki".

Hayden is growing!

He's always liked to be held while he sleeps during the day (which makes it really difficult to get anything done), and then a couple of weeks ago he started getting fussy for no reason. Well it turns out that he has reflux which is causing heartburn. That's why he spits up so much and doesn't like to be put down on his back. Now we're giving him medicine twice a day and hoping that it improves once he's old enough to sit up on his own.

In the meantime, I get to enjoy lots of time holding my baby which is especially fun right after he eats because he's in a good mood. He's getting very talkative and will usually smile and squeal and coo. Of course when I got out the camera, he decided that he would rather nap than smile.

He eventually did realize that I had put him down, and he woke up. He wasn't really in the mood for photographs though. I gave him his pacifier, and he tried to curl up and go back to sleep.

Hayden is doing great and starting to show more emotion. He'll even try to coo once in a while when he's in a good mood (up until now the only baby sound he could make was a cry). We're still not getting near enough sleep since he needs to eat every couple hours, but he's a really good baby.

As you can imagine, I take a lot of photographs and sometimes end up with some comical outtakes. Of course most people wouldn't appreciate having their funny photos shared, but poor little Hayden doesn't have a lot of say in the matter. His expressions right now are pretty limited: sleeping, crying, serious, and... wide awake.
