20 Questions for Hayden

Somehow Hayden is 7 already!  He has had a great year being 6, and I’m sure it’s all IMG_4492upwards from here.  He loved Kindergarten and really flourished.  He’s got a big year ahead with starting a new school at the International School of Bologna, which he is excited about!  It’s fun watching him mature more and more every year.  He says things now like, “Mommy, do you think I could do [x]?  I don’t think I’ll be allowed to because [y] but I’m just asking.” 🙂

His birthday fell during our move, so we had his birthday party in July to make sure we had time for a party.  He really wanted it at the Monon Center water park, but it got rained out so we did a last minute switch to Dave and Busters.  His actual birthday was the day we flew to Italy.  We asked him if he would rather be in Indiana for his birthday, be in Italy already, or be flying on his birthday (in case we had flexibility to choose when), and he wanted to be on airplanes and in airports for his birthday – and that’s what he got!  We also got to fly first class due using points to upgrade, so that made it extra special!  Although, we got ice cream sundaes on the flight and for some reason Hayden didn’t want any…?  I just can’t figure that one out.

1) What is your favorite color? Black

2) What is your favorite toy? Wii

3) What is your favorite fruit? Peaches and apricots

4) What is your favorite TV show? The show with the bear and the girl – something new we’ve watched in Italy but don’t know what it’s called.

5) What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?  Bread he’s been eating here with butter (making essentially an empty sandwich).

6) What is your favorite outfit? Lego Star Wars shirt

7) What is your favorite game? Mine Craft

8) What is your favorite snack? Chocolate granola bar

9) What is your favorite animal?  Dolphin

10) What is your favorite song? “The robot song” – I think this is called “Party Rock Anthem”

11) What is your favorite book? These Aren’t the Droids You’re Looking For (Star Wars)

12) Who is your best friend? Drew

13) What is your favorite cereal? Cocoa Krispies (“but I don’t eat it anymore”)

14) What is your favorite thing to do outside? Play in the big playground in Hawaii

15) What is your favorite drink?  Peach tea (cold)

16) What is your favorite holiday? Christmas

17) What do you like to take with you to bed at night? Bunny and fox

18) What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Waffle and fruit yogurt

19) What do you want for dinner for your birthday? McDonald’s

20) What do you want to be when you grow up? Nascar driver

I found this really cute idea online, and I am going to implement it in our family at birthday time.  Layla is too young to answer for herself, so I’ll do my best to answer for her.

1) What is your favorite color?  Purple, although she will only say the color “blue” when she is trying to say which [cup, bowl, shirt, shoe, etc] she wants, even when there is no blue, and if there is a blue one she will say No to the blue one when it is given to her.

2) What is your favorite toy?  Minnie.  Hands down.

3) What is your favorite fruit?  Apple.  No question.

4) What is your favorite TV show?  Team Umizoomi.

5) What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?  Hmmm…. that’s tricky.  She’s a pretty good eater in general, but doesn’t have a go-to food like Hayden and his peanut butter and jellies right now (all.he.will.eat).  I guess I’ll say… cocktail wienies.

6) What is your favorite outfit?  Purple Minnie tank top.

7) What is your favorite game? She likes puzzles.  Does that count as a game?  Let me ask the judges… ok, I say yes!

8) What is your favorite snack? Crackers

9) What is your favorite animal? Doggie or kitty

10) What is your favorite song? Baa, baa black sheep

11) What is your favorite book? Where is Baby’s Belly Button

12) Who is your best friend? Haddy (Hayden) or Tessa (from day care)

13) What is your favorite cereal?  Daddy’s cereal! Which she shares with him every morning.

14) What is your favorite thing to do outside? Swing/play on playset

15) What is your favorite drink?  “Minnie juice” (anything in her Minnie cup, usually apple or apple/grape juice).  Also, strawberry yogurt drink.  And anything with ice.

16) What is your favorite holiday?  Christmas

17) What do you like to take with you to bed at night? “Yiyo” (Pillow – a purple pillow that has the head of a hippo or pony), Minnie, plus zillions of dolls, her princess quilt, and some blankies.

18) What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? For the past week it has been toast.  Also, Mommy’s oatmeal.  Formerly, yogurt, but no longer.

19) What do you want for dinner for your birthday?  Hot dog.

20) What do you want to be when you grow up? A woman.

Layla, I don’t know how you are two years old already.  I feel like time is going by faster with you than it even did with Hayden.  You are a sweet little girl with a big personality.  You are such a blast.  I love having you in my life.  I love watching you and Hayden play and laugh together.  I love watching you getting older, understanding more of the world around you and communicating better and better.  I love watching you get excited, and laughing along with us like you “get the joke.”  I love your singing and telling me and Daddy to stop singing.  I love how you snap to attention when I walk through the door at day care, run over to me saying “Momma, Momma, Momma,” and give me the tightest hug in the world.  I love when I pass by on my run while you are playing outside at day care, and I get a kiss through the fence.  I love the cuddles I get first thing in the morning as I get you out of your crib, when you whisper to me in your cute little voice. We are one lucky family to have such a wonderful little sweetie in our lives.
