10.20.10

for our 5th anniversary, russ gave me the best gift of all (for someone who values quality time above all else), he took the whole day off! we got breakfast take-out, ran errands, opened presents, lazied about, got ready and then dropped baby off with my mom so we could go to the temple & get dinner. such a nice day!
 
loving these shots of him- both equally quintessentially Hayes.

 unrelated, but equally as important. everyone thinks hayes looks like russ, nothing brings russ greater joy. but, for your consideration, here are some recent shots of all of us.
 if you ask me i think there's a little emily floating around in those eyes, yes? no?
and for those who care, here's the anniversary outfit.
i channeled my inner mondo and wore tweed & stripes.
sweater, f21 / skirt, gap / clogs, jeffrey campbell / tee, american apparel
and as for the countless bruises on the backs of my legs -- that would be our new bed.
the impossibly low to the ground, hard to exit, MALM.

whoever he looks like, he's downright beautiful.
he's still little enough i can call him that.
but gosh! HE IS!

oh and yes. haysiebaby is all russ in the mouth, but there's some emily in the eyes. he's definitely got your irises.

Sydney said...

Absolutely those are YOUR eyes. I've thought so from the start! Those shoes are amazeballs lady!

kersey said...

He totally looks like you emily. People say the same thing about Elliott looking "exaclty like" Preston. I think it's because they don't want us to feel like we look manish, and don't want us to think our boys are girly looking.

Emily Dickson said...

Oh yeah, I definitely see more you in Hayes. He is SUCH a cutie! And I love the outfit!

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

He is just getting more and more gorgeous! &I think he looks like a perfect mix of both of you :)

Shorty said...

He does look a lot like Russ judging by the pics, but (even before I read your whole post) I think he has your eyes. :)

lindsay ross said...

I swear we JUST saw you, and he has already changed so much! love this little guy.

Kirsten Krason said...

Love Mondo! And I totally see your eyes on Hayes.

Lindsay said...

Hayes so reminds me of that picture of you on the toilet with the paci. He totally has your eyes!
I want those shoes! And I love Mondo! And I miss you!

Jenn said...

my son and i both have a malm bed too. if you swing your tush around and balance out that way to get your feet around to the ground, the bruises will disappear.

Dana said...

He is you too! It's in his cheeks as well. Your cheeks USED to look like his. He'll be more "you" as he grows older. --- Have you ever noticed that children make their parents look alike?

Annie said...

we love hayes, probably more than a reasonable amount considering the 0% relation. alex scoffed as i said how much hayes looks like you in the third picture, so it looks like the jury's still out in the grow home.

lexsmama said...

He has Russ's mouth and your eyes. Other than that, he's a good mix. :-) Either way, he's still gorgeous!

Logan said...

I am so glad to know that I am not the only one who struggles with that bed frame! When we first got it, I would run my shins into the corners almost every time I tried to walk around it. :)

"With me by myself!" your hand looks so small in that pic LOL
