Meeting Mickey Mouse!

Haden took his first trip to Disney World this week! What a lucky guy to get to go at only 4 months old (thanks Aunt Kelly and Uncle Josh)! But boy was it HOT! He was such a trooper getting strolled around with a fan blowing on him!

We still had a great time and Haden even enjoyed Pirates of the Caribbean, Muppets, the Great Movie Ride, Country Bears Jamboree, Hall of Presidents, the Safari, Festival of the Lion King and It's Tough to be a Bug! Although I think he slept through half of them :) The best was meeting Mickey and Minnie! Haden loved them and when Minnie went to kiss him he tried to eat her nose!

We got tons of pictures and when we went to leave, Minnie wouldn't let go. She kept looking back at Mickey as if asking to keep him! Mickey pulled her back and gave her a big hug to let her know it would be okay!
We had a caricature drawn of Haden to put in his room! I love how it turned out!

And Mommy is a BIG fan if Haden's first set of ears!

1st Baseball Game

Mommy and Daddy took me to my FIRST baseball game today!!! We had such a great time! We were joined by Alle, Holden, Aunt Amy and Uncle Scott!!! We actually have them to thank for the tickets! Thanks :)

I may be little but I am a BIG fan of Guilford the Mascot and the Greensboro Grasshoppers!!!

Happy 4 Months!

Happy 4 months, little boy. You are now 13 lbs 10.5 oz (25%), 24 in long (19%), and your head is 41 cm (20%). Wow have you ever changed our lives! We are loving every minute of it!!
You are now eating rice cereal and so far have had apples and squash. You love to be talked to and laugh when mommy sings to you (am I that bad?). You are rolling from your back to your belly, and when you get there you can only take it for a minute or two before getting frustrated. You love play time and stretching out on your play mats!
You are the apple of our eyes and both mommy and daddy are head over heels in love with you. Keep growing little boy, be strong and smart, accomplish your dreams, and know that we both are your biggest fans. We love you, Haden!

Last Thursday, my mother and I decided to brave Haden's first flight together!!! We flew from RDU to MDW in Chicago and then stayed with my grandmother in Hobart, IN. We knew he would do great but were relieved when it actually happened. We got to introduce my son to all the Larsen side of the family! It was so much fun getting to celebrate the 4th of July weekend with all of them around. We had a wonderful time and wish the trip could have lasted longer. Love everyone up there so much!!!

We had many adventures including time with the "Great"-Aunts on Friday, a trip to the Fair Oaks Dairy Farm on Saturday (We actually saw a baby cow being born!), then a big family get-together Sunday! We flew back this morning (highly recommend - not many people were traveling today)!

Scott missed Haden quite a bit though (and we missed him quite a bit too) and we were all glad to be together tonight to share the 4th as a family :)
