I can't believe Hanna is 4 and Hayden is almost 2. Hanna is becoming more fun at 4. I think this is going to be our best year yet. She is becoming more affectionate saying I love you and along with the extra hugs and kisses, she can't get enough of sneeking into our bed at night.
As fun as each milestone is, Hanna and I had a hard milestone. The weather here has been perfect, so we have been out practicing on Hanna & Haydens' new bikes. The other day, Hanna was playing with all the kids in the neighborhood and one boy (whom I hadn't met before) yelled at her and purposely excluded her from riding in his motorized truck when he gave everyone else rides. She came running crying several times after asking for a turn to ride. Luckily another mother who knew this boy, kindly introduced the children and they made up. Hanna was then very happy when he offered her a ride. And so it begins...
|The sweetest women you will ever know.|
|I had a gift idea to personalize ornaments for Hanna's preschool classmates and made a donation in each of their names.|
|I thought it was a win, win.|
|Scott ran the charity run and we all had a blast.|
|The first Santa that both the kids liked showed up at the race for the kids.|

|Hayden getting even more handsome.|
We had a scare last week when Hayden was throwing up with a fever. Most kids you give an antibiotic to and send them home. Not so with Hayden. We spent an entire day at the Dr. office getting all sorts of test to make sure it wasn't the shunt in his brain. Both kids were very patient and I had a peaceful feeling the whole time. Fortunately, it was "normal" kid stuff. Gotta love "normal".
Recently, it is also hard for me to believe that Hayden is now about the same age that Hanna was when he was born. I still view him as my baby. He is growing up into such a big boy. He can repeat almost any word I say. It is so surprising what he can say. He surprises me each day.
