14 Months Old!

Yep, that's right! Aiden is 14 months old now. Wow, how time has flown!! Aiden is definitely a little comedian, and a big mama's boy! Oh, and he's gonna be a motor mouth! =) He has really become very interested in learning to talk, and often he tries to say what he hears other people saying. I can't wait for the day when he can say 'I love you'! We've already started working on that one...

What is Aiden up to these days?

  • He loves to sing and dance!

  • He loves being outside!

  • He loves going to the park - the slide is his favorite!

  • He still enjoys bath time!

  • He has 12 teeth, and 4 more coming in!

  • We have started brushing his teeth this month.

  • He still takes a bottle at nap and bedtime, but he's been able to drink out of a sippy cup for a while. We are gonna work on that this month!

  • Words he knows: Katie, Daddy, Jenny, hey, hello, ball, baba (bottle), up, hot dog, uh-oh, oh wow, night-night, bye-bye. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them all!
Happy 14 month birthday Aiden! We love you!

Heavy Heart

My heart aches as I continue watching the coverage of this tragic earthquake. I immediately think of the children who depend on their parents that might now be dead, the disabled who may not have the ability to walk or escape the rubble that has toppled onto them, the fear of those who do not know how they will eat or where they will live, those who are alone still trapped. I feel like crying.

Tonight I pray for them.

Where are my keys??

So, for Christmas, Santa brought Aiden a 'Playskool Busy Ball Popper'. He absolutely loves putting the balls in and watching them pop back out again. In fact, his favorite part is putting the balls inside. I think he really feels like that is where the balls are supposed to be, and after he gets them all inside he'll clap his hands and smile as if he fixed the broken toy! The only problem is, he thinks that he can put ANYTHING he gets his hands on into the Ball Popper. Recently, anything that goes missing at our house can usually be found inside of the Ball Popper. We've found keys, magnets, pencils & pens, and lots of other small items! Luckily, they have all been easily retrieved, and the toy is still working.

Happy New Year!

Unfortunetly we spent New Year's in the emergency room this year. Jaime burned his face and shoulder at work on New Year's Eve, so we were in the hosital at midnight. No worries, he is recovering well and you can hardly tell he was ever burned! It's amazing, he heals incredibly fast! Happy New Year!

Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

Christmas Eve we got together with my family to exchange gifts and eat dinner. Jaime and David made tamales with rice and beans.....YUMMY!

As you can see, we had an AMAZING Christmas. God has truly blessed our family.

Christmas Festivities

Every year, we take the children to see Santa Clause. This year, since Jenny started school, she and I made her Christmas list to give to Santa. She was very excited. Aiden was too little to be excited, but he didn't cry or get upset. That makes two years in a row with no tears during the Santa picture!

This year putting up Christmas decorations was much more difficult. Jenny was a BIG help, but all Aiden wanted to do was climb in and on top of the boxes, and play with and break ornaments. Finally, we were able to get it all up. We even decided to put decorations on the outside of the house this year!

Christmas Pictures!

Aiden's First Birthday!

For Aiden's first birthday, we had a small party at home. Everyone, especially Aiden, had a lot of fun! In honor of Aiden's favorite TV show, the party theme was 'Mickey Mouse Clubhouse'.

The cake!

Look mama! Cake!

Thanksgiving 2009

Unfortunetly, I don't have any pictures from Thanksgiving. We had Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year, and I was too busy cooking and preparing to take pictures! It was just a small dinner, that included my parents, my brother, Jaime, Aiden, David, and myself. Jenny spent Thanksgiving with her mother this year, but she'll be here for ours next year. Jaime and I made everything ourselves, nothing was precooked. Dinner consisted of turkey, dressing, cranberries, sweet potatoe casserole, green beans, and rolls. We also had pecan and pumpkin pies for dessert!
After dinner, we went to the annual IHOP vs. Old Towne soccer game at Rabbit Park. Jaime and David participated in the game, and Aiden and I just watched. We started out watching on the sidelines, but Aiden didn't want to stay on the sidelines - he wanted to play too! The weather was also a little chilly, so Aiden and I ended up watching the last half of the game from inside the car.
Once the game was over, we met back up with my family to attend the annual Lighting of the Tree in Historic Lawrenceville. It is something that my family has gone to every year for as long as I can remember. Santa Clause road in on the fire truck after the tree was lit, but we weren't able to take Aiden in to see him that night. He was however able to see him from a distance.
Thanksgiving this year was a lot of fun, and Jaime and I have a lot of things to be thankful for!
