Keeping Busy

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. We've been pretty busy. No, we haven't been Christmas shopping, doing our basement renovation, or getting to the million other things we had planned for Scott's time off. We've been over at Nai Nai and Yeh Yeh's house. Doing what? Well, on Tuesday, we spent nine fun-filled hours peeling, scraping, and prying wallpaper off the walls. Wednesday was spent patching up all of the scratch marks and dents that we made on Tuesday. Today, we finally finished by painting the front hall and living room. It looks pretty good if I do say so myself. We don't have any pictures just yet.

Hayden had a grand old time playing with Nai Nai and Yeh Yeh. He also had fun playing on his own. Scott bought him a great new toy to satisfy his love of lights. He's fascinated with it. The other night he was really fussy. We tried everything to calm him but nothing was working. Finally, Scott put him on the floor underneath his new toy and he quieted down right away and lay under his toy for half an hour with bright eyes and a smiling face. That's his other new pasttime. Hayden can be pretty smiley these days. He's pretty close to a laugh, I can feel it.
