Mr. Hayden has been here for 2 weeks now and we can't imagine life without him. We are enjoying getting to know our teeny guy and his little personality. Hayden is such a sweet baby. He loves to cuddle with Mommy and Daddy, but is pretty good with everyone else that wants to hold him. He is a great eater, and eats 10 - 12 times a day, which means lots of quality time for Mommy.
Hayden used to dislike diaper changes and getting dressed but he doesn't mind them too much anymore- especially when he manages to get Daddy during open-air "target practice." He's most relaxed snoozing on Daddy or Mommy's chests.
Hayden is a good sleeper by newborn standards. He usually only wakes up for one or two (at the most) feedings a night. He's working toward spending longer portions of his nights here:
but usually prefers to sleep in Mom and Dad's bed (which is ok, because they kind of prefer it too right now):
When he's awake, he enjoys listening to music, dancing with Mommy,
going on walks with Mommy, Lucy, and Daddy (he usually logs 2 walks a day in his stroller)
playing with his toys,
and hanging out with his buddy, Lucy.
(She makes sure they stick together, even when he's asleep.)
Little Mister loves bath time too and cuddling up afterwards.
Next up in the adventures of Hayden (and his mommy and daddy) is a 10 day vacation to Lake Tahoe. (-which he naturally helped pack for!) We're hoping his "easy-baby" vibe extends to vacation time as well.
We are loving life as new parents, as exhausting as it can be at times. Hayden has already brought so much joy and love to our little family in 2 short weeks. We can't wait to share more updates as he grows.
