Hayden Turns 1

Contrary to what it seems, Hayden was not born, like, a couple of months ago. He has turned the corner to boyhood and is one year old.

It's unbelievable. We're still kind of in shock, frankly. It doesn't matter if you're reading this a few years later. We still don't believe it.

"O my gosh what is UP with them! Yeeesh!"

"I have no idea what this stuff is. It is NOT mushy."

"Excuse me, but I thought I CLEARLY ordered mush."
