Which one is which?

So for those of you who have not already seen this on facebook, these two pictures are of Ayden and Declan. Can you tell which one is which?

Declans first hair cut

This is Declan in his cape
                                                     This is all of his hair that came off of his head
                                                     This is him after all was said and done!

So I decided to shave Declans head just because. I know it is a myth that if you cut your hair it will grow in faster, thicker, and darker. But I decided to test this myth with Declan anyways. I figured you can't see his hair anyways and it's not gonna hurt anything for him to be bald for a while. He did so well and as you can see I even got smiles when we were all done.

Random cuteness

Here are just some random super cute pics of the baby. I just can't get enough of this little face!

Declan Douglas Bateman

As many of you know, we had our baby on November 26, 2012. He was 5 1/2 weeks early due to pre-aclampsia. He was 5lbs. 13oz. and 18 inches long. We named him Declan Douglas Bateman. He did really well after being brought into this world. He had to go on oxygen for about 2 hours but was able to avoid the NICU which was a great blessing! He is so much fun and so much joy to us in our family. We sure love our little "ducky".

Hardy Family Pictures

So this is the first time Megan came home in 3 years! So we took the opportunity to get these family photos. The last time we had family pictures taken Ayden was not even one year old yet!
So as you can imagine the family was a LOT smaller back then.

This is my parents, Brad and Bonnie Hardy

My parents with all five of their kids

The whole family (except Megans husband Travis, we're gonna try and photo shop him in)

The whole family again

Me and all of my siblings

All 5 kids and our spouses, again except Travis :(

My parents and ALL 11 of their grandkids!

All 11 grandkids together for the first time ever!!!

My oldest sister Amber, her husband Scott, and their kids from left to right are Isabel, Chandler,
Carter, and Desiree

My little family. Aren't we SO cute?! :)

The kids LOVED pumpkin carving

We had a GREAT Halloween this year! The kids finally understood what it is all about and had a blast trick-or-treating! We can't wait for Christmas this year! We have already put up the tree and kids think its Christmas every time it snows. They are growing SO fast and I love the holidays now that my kids are old enough to get the meaning of them and get excited about the things that are supposed to happen. They make the holidays much more enjoyable for me. Merry Christmas everyone. Hope everyone is safe and doing well, especially at this time of year.
