A house of many colors!

We are in the process of updating our home. Whether it be for our future enjoyment, or to increase it's resale value, we do not know, but I'm loving the result. Today I painted a small alcove in our hall a deep mocha color and I love it. I just had to share!

I stand corrected!

Many of you reading this blog may have previously heard my stand on the Bumbo Baby Seat. It ranged from "What a silly product!" to "It looks like a torture device, not a chair!" But I am hear today, mother to a 4 month old baby who refuses to lay down, but cannot hold himself up, and I proudly state, "I stand corrected!"

Tonight we purchased a Bumbo chair for Mason and he LOVES it. It's perhaps the best investment I've ever made for a child and I think that I to am going to love it!

Ode to a Mouse Hunter

T’was a day deep in August,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except for a MOUSE!

The children were nestled,
All snug in their seat,
When the cry from the kitchen,
Rang loudly…”RETREAT!”

The kitty, a toy,
For his pleasure had found,
And the Momma’s cry,
From the walls did resound.

Then what from the driveway,
Did her happy ears hear?
But the sound of a mouse hunter,
It calmed most of her fear.

He came into the house,
With a broom and a cup,
And proceed to find and,
Scoop the mousy right up.

The homestead was safe,
From the mousy once more,
Thanks to the Hunter,
Who peace did restore!

Cory has been out of town the last few days and we were unpleasantly surprised by the appearance of a mouse in our house (Thank you Patches for that little present!). So my dear friend Kristina, who's husband happens to work just down the road, sent Rich to come save us from the small creature who had invaded our space. Thank you again Rich for saving us from our irrational fear of the fuzzy!

It's a PRIDE thing!

I made a baby shower invite that turned out so cute I just had to share! It's for my cute friend Kristina who is expecting her first girl. I wanted it to be pinkalicious and I think I succeeded.

Cute boy!

Tired Boy, I love that he looks like a stuffed animal with his back curled like that.
Yummy Rice!

Mason has started rice cereal and soy milk, which has made him a happy boy...and especially sleepy since he's now experiencing a full tummy for the first time. I got some great pics this week and thought I'd share.

My Big Birthday Boy

Today our little man turned 2!! I can hardly believe how fast time flies. Although there are many things we love about Jaxson here are, in Hadley Family Tradition, the top 2 things we love about Jax!

1. He's the funniest little man, from his waddling run, to his funny little saying (telling Daddy when he plays with toys "dat's not yours" and saying "WHOA" whenever we give him his dinner). He keeps us laughing all day long.
2. His loving personalitly. He loves to give hugs and kisses, even if he's not the most gentle hugger (ask cousin Joey!).
We had tasty truck cake on Sunday with friends, then we went to the library and the park tonight and played past bedtime. We finished our evening with ICEE's and books. It was a fun fun birthday for our little man.
