I simply need to get something off my chest quickly.

Sometimes advice goes too far, and it simply becomes nagging. I'm not even talking about baby advice right now, either! I won't reveal too much because too many people read my blog who would make this a bigger deal or what-have-you, so I'll just leave it at that.

On another note, yes, my son is a beast. He's big. But he has been from the start. He's not overeating anymore (going anywhere from 3-4 hours between feedings) and he's long and solid. He's perfect. I'm so sick of my grandmother saying we might need to put him on a diet. I think she's just kidding and making conversation, but Hayden is just fine. He's healthy, happy, and wonderful. Yes, he has a double chin, but do the same people need to make a point to remark about it every time they see him? He's beautiful, and the "extra" will begin disappearing as he starts crawling. Sigh.

He's starting to discover his hands and feet. It's so fun to watch!

And on a final note, this cross-dressing man addressed me in Wal-Mart today. He was odd. And a little scary. He wasn't ashamed to be who he is, but I hate that that is what he feels he is. Did that sentence make any sense?

Okay, enough rambling. My son needs to play. Bye, all!

Hi, love the pictures! Hayden is growing so much. I feel like I'm right there watching him change almost every day right with you. Thanks for sharing the pictures and so forth. You are doing such a great job, and I'm so proud of you!

Miss you guys!

Hey! Hayden is just precious! I love all of his Alabama stuff! Hope y'all are doing well! Motherhood is amazing! So glad you have a blog, love your background!!

Oh goodness! You do have a precious baby...don't let comments about him being big bother you. LOTS of babies have double chins, even "little" babies! Just keep up your great job, Mama!

Darling sister, this is the first time I have ever read your blog. I might have to read it more often.
