week 11

I am kinda late posting this, but so is someone else I know.. you better not be falling behind Lisa! :)


taking a walk

It was so nice out today, we decided to take a little walk together.. Aidan LOVES picking up rocks.. he loads his hands up with his finds, and then comes to me to help him put them in his pockets!

We also went walking by the barn.. Aidan looked so small staring up at it! I was surprised that he didn't get tired, we were out walking for over an hour!



..giving a toddler a chocolate chip cookie while you are driving, is NOT a good idea..


fun with Grandpa

Aidan loved spending time with Grandpa tonight!
They ran around the yard together & played..
all the fresh air put Aidan to bed at 8 o'clock tonight!


first fort!

Tonight, I had Tony make up a bunch of boxes for me.. so I can get rid of stuff from upstairs, to get it ready for Aidan's playroom..our soon to be big project!

Anyways.. Aidan & Daddy had so much fun stacking the boxes & making a fort..

..they were so cute playing together :)


first boo-boo

As I was trying to help Aidan walk inside last night before dinner, he yanked his hand out of mine and tried to master our step on his own.. frustrated, he started to cry & lost control of his feet, falling on the grass.

Our stubborn little boy wouldn't take my hand again, and then rolled over onto the sidewalk..

my heart skipped a beat when I saw his poor scrape.. and with tons of kisses, and a few tears.. he was back to his normal self again, in less than a minute :)


It was so nice out yesterday, we broke out Aidan's swing.. he loved it!
I can tell already that he is going to want to be outdoors 24/7 this summer :)
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.


week 10

playing outside

Love my boys!!

It was another nice day outside today & Aidan loves being outdoors! Tony tried to get Aidan to kick this ball back & forth to him, but Aidan didn't really understand how to kick yet..

..so he just kept bringing Daddy the ball instead. :)
Grandma came back from visiting Jackson & Sammy this week & brought Aidan some toys & this cool table & chairs!

Aidan has been putting lots of his toys up on the table and loves to sit in the chairs.. and drag them across the living room too!
Aidan loves his new toothbrush!
Even though he only has 2 teeth to brush.. he does a good job!


Today, the boys & I (Grammie too!) went outside for a wagon ride! Aidan was so silly.. waving throughout the whole ride, like he was in a parade or something!

After that, Aidan showed Micah his little playset & they took turns going down the slide..

then Aidan got bored & stomped around a bit on top of his sandbox.. it was so great to finally get outside!


week 8

..this week was all about Aidan!
Grandpa came for dinner tonight, and Aidan had so much fun spending time & reading with him. :)

'lil dipper

Tony just showed Aidan how to dip his chicken.. now he wants to dip EVERYTHING!
