The Promised Photos!

Hello Everyone!

I am already more on top of this blog than I have been in ages. A lot of you have seen some of these photos, but here a few favorites from the last few months. Aidan is getting big and independent and SUPER MOBILE so fast! I am pretty certain that he is about to cut two more teeth. He has been eating like a champ (loves yo baby organic yogurt and Naan!) He is a wonderful, joyful little person who makes me laugh all the time. Hope you like the pics!

Two of my personal favorites. How cute is he sitting on the left?

Getting in the laundry and hanging with his friend Iason!

All snuggled with the mama.

Devilish Grin.

Already learning to play the banjo....

Studying the leaves and smiling in the arms of his papa.

Yes - This really is my first post since the end of September!

Hello Everyone.

Jen - are you happy now? Jen pointed out that I have not updated this blog since September. That is not cool - so here goes. So much happened in the later part of 2009 that I could barely keep the laundry done - much less update my blog. But now that 2010 is in full swing - I would like to make a new commitment to keeping the blog updated with everything Aidan.

Aidan is growing a developing so much! I cannot believe how fast he is changing. He is looking less like a baby and more like a little boy (a super cute super blond little boy!) As I type this he is napping in his swing (which he has almost outgrown). He is crawling, cruising furniture, climbing the stairs, pulling himself up on everything and he even has two bottom front teeth.

I am certain that everyone who follows this blog, knows about the daycare debacle that we went through in mid-December. Luckily, with the help of work colleagues, JM and I found a great new in-home daycare. Aidan is lucky to be there!!! We also have a great new babysitter/nanny who comes to the house on Mondays to watch Aidan. She is lovely and even helps out around the house some! We are equally lucky to have her!!!

I am amazed as each day goes by how much more my heart opens up to Aidan. Even at his crankiest, my love for him grows and grows. Sappy, I know, but true. He has changed me in many ways that I am just beginning to understand. I love being his mama and I feel truly blessed that he is such a curious, happy little boy.

I could leave the getting up at 6:30 in the morning stuff, but you get my point!

Photos to come -- much love.
