Happy 1/2 Birthday Hayden!!

Hayden is now 6 months old... and boy is she getting big! I can't believe how fast she is growing up. I probably shouldn't be saying this, as she just recently started sleeping through the night and I finally have my sanity back, but I am starting to get baby fever. Mike and I don't have any plans right now, but we have officially decided that we are going to start trying again around next June (knock on wood) If it happens then or not we will see. We would ideally like them to be about 2 years apart. Mike has reminded me numerous times that he only wants 2... but he knows I want 3, and I think I will be able to convince him. he he. Well see.

So here are Hayden's stats from her 6 month well baby check up today:
Length: 26.5 inches
Weight: 16lbs 4oz
Head: 16 inches

So I guess she is doing pretty well, her pedi said that as long as they remain on the same curve they are doing great. Hayden did have to get 4 shots today though, which she was not happy about... my eardrums were not happy either. They gave her the flu shot today because the next time we will be back won't be until November - well into Flu season. I haven't completely decided what I am going to do about the H1N1 shot yet - it hasn't been tested on babies or children at all which makes me nervous. Plus I think the fact that Hayden isn't in daycare or around other people that much makes me think she shouldn't be as suseptible. I'm leaning towards not having her get it at all - but we will just wait and see.

So I've been trying to come up with fun activities I can do with Hayden since I pretty much label myself a stay at home mom... even though I do work at night. I went to our local libraries website and discovered that they have Baby Storytime for babies age birth to 24 months. Its completely free and they sing songs and read books and do all kinds of interactive stuff. It is every Mon, from Sept. 14-Oct. 26 at 10:30 - so I registered us. I am super excited about this!! Plus, the library is only a couple blocks away so we can take the stroller and walk there.... and then I will get my workout in for the day :) The only thing I am a little worried about is that right now 10-11am ish is Hayden's naptime. Yikes!!
