To say that Hayes enjoys spending time with his Daddy is a gross understatement. He would rather hang out with him than anybody else. I'd like to pretend he likes me best... but every night when his Daddy comes home he proves otherwise! One night a few weeks ago he climbed into the shower while Daryk was in there. Hayes was fully dressed... so we just decided he could get a bath then too. Hayes thought that playing peekaboo over the shower curtain was hilarious! I had to run and get the camera before we stopped playing the game!
The kitchen has become his favorite place to explore. I finally had to break down and put some cabinet locks on the lower cabinets. I still haven't figured out how to latch the hoosier cabinet, so I changed the storage for that location. I moved all the plastics down there for Hayes to play with. The appliances got moved up top! Hayes thinks the swiffer duster and the plastic storage containers are just for him!
I'm not sure where he learned this jaw out pouty face thing... but it is certainly hilarious! WE have so enjoyed laughing and smiling at this pitiful face. He will make this face at strangers, family, our friends, and yes sometimes even us. He often makes us laugh out loud with this face. He isn't always upset or angry with this face--sometimes it is just a statement about his current feeling. He started doing it because he was teething, but now it is a daily thing! The Hayes face!
Hayes loves his lego blocks. I was bound and determined that he would have some of these to play with! He enjoys banging them together to make noise AND occasionally actually puts them together. Mostly he just uses them to make noise when he's crawling or standing up against the wall or doors! He's so much fun to watch and play with.
Hayes has the cutest red overalls and plaid shirt. I make him wear it when we go to Cougar events because they match our colors... sorta! He's quite a cutie! He makes a huge mess eating on a daily basis, so we just cut our losses and move forward. I have no issues with his face being a mess when we are at home. Out in public is another story!
