Haynes Happenings!!

Today, our sweet cousin Aleyse came over for a visit. She is almost 2 and as cute as a button. Hailey loved starring at her. Aleyse had a great time pointing out both Mattie and Hailey's eyes, nose and mouth. She is so smart! The gangs all here. Mattie, Aleyse, and Hailey waving.

A kiss for her cousin!

Honey and Mattie with Uncle BO and Hailey. We just love to see the Connell family!!
Here is sweet Hailey in her big girl bed! Cute twin outfit from our friend Cora in Texas!

Here is Mattie in her bed too! Both girls loved starring at the polka dots! We love our room Mommy!!!!

A few days ago, Madden and Jamie came over for a visit. Madden was born 5 days before Mattie and Hailey. He was early too! His mommy Jamie and I met at Strong Mommy swim classes. We joked about being in the hospital at the same time- turns out we were. :)

Hailey actually kept this bow on her head!!!! I am so proud.

Easter was a little vocal- as you can tell. We thought all the screaming had scared the Easter bunny away, but he surprised us with goodies anyway!!

Sponsor Me at March for Babies!

March of Dimes Walk!!

Hi there.
Please consider donating to my walk for BABIES- even if it is just $5!!
The March of Dimes has truly become very dear to my heart- I only recently learned what exactly it does... when I had Mattie and Hailey at 33 weeks due to being preeclampsic. My girls were in the NICU for 2 weeks and thankfully were very healthy, but I saw a lot of families that weren't so lucky. I have now become a very strong believer in helping others that face these challenges and hopefully try to prevent them too. If you would like to donate- GREAT! If not, please just add these families and babies to your prayer list... PRAYER WORKS!
one day... all babies will be born healthy
today... too many moms and families know the heartbreak of having a baby born fighting to survive
I've joined March for Babies because the March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will help:
- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
Please help by donating today!
It's easy, safe and secure - just click to make your donation.
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

Thanks so much!

Happy Easter!!
