Ok already! I hear you! I know I've been slacking on the blog. I challenge you to not sleep at night, chase around an active baby, saving him from danger that lurks in every corner of your house, run the hills at the Arboretum, and then feel motivated to entertain the masses with a blog. Besides, what are you all going to do when I go back to work in September?! Get used to it.

So, besides all of that, Hayden has also been busy with many social engagements. Cousin Nico came in for another visit. She's very talkative these days and is learning to accept Hayden. She even let him ride in the stroller with her. Hayden also quenched his musical thirst at the Bluesfest, taking in the Steve Miller Band and Blue Rodeo. He also got to meet some new people. Gesa, Mama's friend, got a first account taste of how squirmy Hayden can be while she tried to hold him during dinner. Hayden also met some of Mama's old camp friends: Mirana, Craig, and Kim and their doggy Van who looks just like Jessie.

Most importantly, Hayden has been gearing up for Aunty Jaime's birthday. He wants to make sure he shows her just how much he appreciates her and loves her. Happy Birthday Aunty Jaime! I love you!
