Newly adopted friend

We have a new member of our house who needs diapers just as much as Aiden! He has more spunk than all of us put together. He also seems to have eye issues... I think I have walked him at least 100 times-he's such a baby!

This reminds me a little of the sistine chapel.

Aiden enjoys watching Beau and Duke play.

Enjoyable times!

Aiden is so easy going about most things-except bath time. Other than that, keep him fed and in a clean diaper and he's fine.

Tuesday, March 10, 2009's going by too fast

8 Months old today!
He is sitting and "talking" to us, but he won't say mama---only dada. He's eating the food he picks up with his chubby fingers. I love to watch him do that. Tonight, he wouldn't drink out of my straw, but wanted to so badly! He's moving around the living room without crawling and pintching everything even us and boy does it hurt. He still loves his baths (and showers). I'm looking forward to his first bubble bath.

In the mornings, he has to watch Aleka and learn how to read. He's delighted to see the hand prints from the dvd and hear the music and Aleka. I wish every baby/toddler/child could have this program!

He's still nursing, but beginning to wean himself. I hope to make it one more month before that happens. I'll really miss my time with him right before bed and early in the morning!

Suction anyone

That's exactly what Aiden wanted as he learned how to drink from a straw. He was so funny trying to get the water! Then, he didn't want to stop.

New fun for Aiden

Since we had to put Aiden's inside swing away, I strongly encouraged Daddy to buy an outside swing. This one is good up to 55lbs. So he has a little over 30 lbs. before it has to be retired.

Such a serious look! He was apprehensive about the swing at first. Then, Daddy decided to really make him go!


While Erik's younger brother visited, Ali and Erik built a small fire pit. Aaron, Carl, and Ali roasted hot dogs and marshmallows last night. They have had so much fun in the neighbor's overgrown field, oops, I mean yard. I get a little nervous not being able to see them, but they always seem to find their way back ;P

Bath time

As most of you know, the little one looks forward to his bath time almost as much as he looks forward to his meals. I get so tickled when he splashes and he gets startled by the way it gets on his face! He's so precious. Dear family here's your Aiden fix for the week!

He wouldn't close his mouth!

More snow pics

Here are some better pictures of our blizzard in GA.

Wonderful weekend

We had a rainy and snowy weekend which finished up nicely by the wonderful snow day on Monday. Don't you love these southern states where everything stops when it snows!

Wider than the sky...

Thoughts about our daily lives.
