First time for everything!


It is so true that when you are a baby everything is NEW, FUN, and the world is super EXCITING! That is definitely the case with Hayes. Everytime we do something, even something small, it's like a whole new world has opened up for her. It's really fun and so sweet to watch your child learn and explore. There is nothing like it!!

Here is her first time for the grocery store buggy rides! Sitting up in the front (and not in her pumpkin seat in the middle of the cart) is a new thing for her. She flaps her arms and smiles at ANYBODY who looks at her in the grocery store. Publix is definitely one of her favorite places now. (And now apparently Nathan will take her there when it's just the 2 of them just to push her around to entertain her for a while!)



Next, here is the first time in the high chair at a restaurant-maybe we're behind but we just put her in here last Sunday after church at Roly Poly. She did not know what to think not having to sit in her carrier-so much easier too.



First fall and first football season! We're loving this nice, cool weather here in Birmingham. Here is Hayes entertaining us in the drink bucket at our friends' Jason and Emily's house last weekend.



First trip to the zoo! We had a field trip to the zoo today with our preschoolers and Hayes got to tag along. I did not know how she would do sitting in the stroller the whole time (mostly she is a climber/escaper from the stroller or anything tying her down, plus it was a long time for her w/no nap!) but she strolled and animal watched like a champ. She looked at a few of the animals but some were too far away for her to notice. She did get some good face to face time with the goat. I can't wait to take her back when she's a little bigger, although she really did enjoy herself this time!!







Last, here is our mess of a house. Yikes! It is a scary place right now! We are doing some work and it is a total disaster right now, but will be worth it in the end!

Isn't it so much fun?! Brooks' favorite place in the world is Publix. It even beats out Toys R Us. He's been going there since birth and loves talking to the employees! I remember learning in Dr. Haynes' class at AU that the grocery store is the best place for learning language. I believe it!!
