Rylee likes sushi!

One of our favorite things to eat is sushi, we started this love while we where in Washington state and now we have found a restaurant in our area that serves amazing sushi.  We went the other night and while we where there we saw that they had a kids sushi meal, so we ordered it for Rylee, it didn't have anything raw in it and Rylee loved it she tried just about everything on her plate.  We did give her a little of  the raw stuff, because she pointed at it and said "Rylee try?" she ate some tuna and some salmon and I think she liked the raw salmon the best.

Baby is sleeping through the night, when will I?

So Hayden has been sleeping through the night for almost two weeks now!  But I still wake up every night, I can't seem to recapture the knack of sleeping all night again.  Also Hayden can roll over!  She is amazing.  We still swaddle her but we may have to stop because she rolled over while swaddled and I don't think it's very safe for her to do that.  I hope leaving her unswaddled doesn't make her stop sleeping so good.

My 2 year old likes consequences.

Today at breakfast Rylee threw her cereal on the floor, so I immediately put her in timeout on her bed and then had her pick up her mess.  The only problem is that she likes timeout and was happy to sit on her bed and as she was picking up her mess she was giggling!  I don't think the giggling was in defiance or because she thought what she had done was funny she is just a happy girl.  Oh my what a funny thing to be trying to figure out.  Is it an effective punishment when she enjoys it?  I don't know what other punishment I could give to a 2 year old.  Oh well, I wouldn't want her any other way she is so special to me and I love her dearly, she certainly makes life fun!

Feast or Famine

It seems like I'm either posting on here all the time or I go like years between posts but it's my blog so I can do whatever I want right?
Since my last post a lot has happened, Hayden is now 4 months old, Rylee is potty trained, we live in Seguin not Brownwood, Bobby has a new job, Bobby's grandfather passed away, and we are fast approaching the holidays.  Whew what a crazy few months.  Here are some pics of the girls.

How Rylee saved Hayden's life.





Little did I know that when I went into labor with Rylee and ended up have to have an emergency c-section that I would praise God for a c-section.  Because of having a c-section with Rylee I had to have a scheduled c-section with Hayden.  When the doctor pulled Hayden out of my belly and looked at the umbilical cord he discovered that the cord was tied in a knot, I remember him calling it a true knot.  He said they are pretty rare and that at some point Hayden swam in such a way that she tied her cord in a knot, he also said that the timing was just about perfect.  If I had labored naturally with her or she had gotten bigger and the knot had gotten tighter then the result could have been so much different.  So I thank God that 2 years ago He was watching out for my beautiful Hayden Joy before she was even born, and I feel blessed that I get a glimpse His mysterious ways.

The newest member of the Hyatt household.

This is Sadie, our 6 week old australian shepherd puppy.  We picked her up on Saturday, Bobby's dad had heard about the puppies of a dog who was the great great great.....granddaughter of a dog that Bobby had loved when he was growing up (Socks) and it came about that we could have a puppy!
Socks was a really good, smart, and loyal dog and I knew if we were going to have another dog I wanted to be as sure as you can be that this dog would be a good one so I knew this was a pretty good shot.
So far it's been good, Sadie seems like a really smart dog, especially for a 6 week old puppy.  She has a  pretty good understanding of "no" and also lets us know about 80% of the time before she poops.  Of course I think this makes her the smartest dog ever.
I don't know if raising a toddler has better prepared me for having a puppy but things I would of found annoying before aren't and I find it easier to be aware of where she is and what she is doing, I know it's only been 2 days but so far I think this is a really good match.
I also think it's interesting looking at Nika as a puppy,  Nika is an australian shepherd mix and Sadie is a pure bred so it will be interesting to see how alike they are.  I've been reading about the traits that australian shepherds have and Nika has a lot of them so I also think that we are well prepared to raise another one.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Rylee does the motions to "itsy bitsy spider" and "patty cake".  I can't believe how fast she is learning things, she surprises me everyday.

Of course once I started filming Rylee turns and watches me.

Rylee's tea party.


The other day Rylee decided that her stuffed animals were thirsty and she needed to do something about it.  She put Minnie and her care bear in their seats, she then got them some cups, pretended to put water in them and served it.

My amazing daughter



Monday night was the first night we put Rylee in her big girl bed to sleep in, I was really really nervous about it, I had nightmares about her not staying in her bed and getting out of her bed all night long.  She shocked us, she exceded all our expectations she has stayed in her bed all night every night!!!!

 The first night she cried after I laid her down and walked out, I didn't do anything and she cried for about 30 seconds, after that we didn't hear a peep out of her until 2:30a.m. she started crying and I went to her, she was standing next to her bed holding her blanket.  I picked her up sat on her bed and cuddled her after a short time she started squirming so I laid her down and rubbed her back not long after that she pushed my hand away so I left and she  slept until morning! 
 At this point I was cautiously optimistic and just praying it hadn't been a fluke, the next test was her afternoon nap which went fine.  It is now Friday and she has done great!  When I went to lay her down for her nap this afternoon her room was messy so we cleaned it up before I laid her down (normally her room is already clean).  After about 3-4 mins I heard a clicking noise over the baby monitor so I went to check on her, she had two of her wooden animals and was laying in her bed playing with them, I took them from her and told her that she may not get out of bed, and I gave her a stuffed animal to cuddle with and told her to go to sleep it's nap time, she then went to sleep.  On the inside I was melting because she looked so sweet laying in her bed with those two toys and how cute that she got out of bed, picked two toys and took them back to her bed to play with. I just don't want her to think she can play with any toy she wants to when its time to go to sleep. 
I really think that we are blessed by this wonderful sweet and obedient daughter that God has given us and I thank God everyday for her.  She excedes our expectations everyday and I am constantly underestimating her.  I love her so much!

Hayden Joy Hyatt

The newest member of our family is Hayden Joy Hyatt, she will arrive sometime in July.  Rylee will be 2 years old on July 14th.   They will be almost exactly 2 years apart.  At my last doctors visit the doctor said that my belly was measuring 3 weeks ahead, and that the placenta is partially blocking the birth canal.  He didn't seem to worried about the placenta issue because I'm already having a c-section because Rylee was a c-section and V-BAC's aren't really an option in Brownwood.  On the ultra-sound Hayden was measuring right on track for the due date and everything looks good so I'm not really sure what the deal with my belly measuring big is, Hayden is the right size and I haven't gained too much weight.  I know that with Rylee my belly measured big to so it's probably just a me thing and nothing to worry about.
