Tim's Back!

I'm so happy that Tim is back and so is Aidan. At the moment, Tim is outside talking to Aidan as cars go by and showing him the bird in the tree, etc. Tim doesn't know that I was watching but it truly is so sweet to watch him play with Aidan. Tonight was our first dinner together...back as a family and Tim obviously did not miss a beat at making Aidan laugh. Check out the cutest videos.

Daddy's coming home!

Daddy's plane just left Kenai and he's coming home! Mommy and I are so excited.

It's been 63 days since we saw Daddy

I have 3 new teeth

I crawl

I've had 252 bottles

I have tried 22 new baby foods

Approximately 325 diaper changes

33 baths

We have made it through our last night without Daddy, last time Mommy and I have to get the mail (that's Daddy's job) and today is half over so we have almost made it through our last weekend without Daddy. Mommy bought me a blow up pool but says we have to wait for you to come home before I can use it...same goes for the beach. You and Mommy have 34 recorded shows to watch! So much I can't wait to show you what I can do. Hurry and get here already! We love you.

It's official.....Aidan says Da-Da! Just in time for Da-da to come home....five days and counting! Last garbage day without Tim and I have no problem relinquishing my trash-taking out/diaper genie emptying skills to Da-Da! By the way, major kudos to Grampy who had to leave his dinner last night to come over to my place to remove the nastiest dead possum....euwwwwww, so disgusting....Grampy rocks!

We have decided to have Aidan's first birthday party on Saturday, October 24th for out of town familia that might want to consider coming to visit. I mean really, how often does the most adorable baby turn 1? I'll have to work harder at the guilt trip thing!

Aidan's back awake...hurry home Da-Da. We miss you and love you so much.

Clapping is back!

I was lucky to have a 3 day weekend with Aidan and we had so much fun. If it wasn't for us going to Mom's for her delicious tacos on Sunday night, I'm not sure we would have left the house Saturday or Sunday. Chyke dropped by yesterday to say hi which was nice. Aidan and I played and napped the rest of the day.

After our morning nap, I say "our" because this mommy did NOT get very much sleep and Aidan thought it would be fun to get up at 5AM.....uhhhh getting side tracked, after our morning nap, Grampy made a surprise visit. Aidan showed off in his jumper and had fun playing with Grampy. Grampy gave him some of his bottle and then did some babysitting while I ran to the grocery store. Thanks Grampy for coming over and watching Aidan!

After our afternoon nap, heehee, we did some cleaning, laundry, dusting, watering plants, etc. and went to Grandma and Grampy's for dinner. Check out the cute video of Aidan clapping. Once Aidan learned to crawl, he stopped clapping but I am quite the persistant mommy who keeps clapping, trying to get little A to clap. I'm proud to say...the clapping is back! OH, and we think Aidan is trying to say DA-DA. I could have done without the meltdown when I tried to clean Aidan up tonight and put on his jammy jammies but it's ok, we'll blame all bad behavior on teething! Last Sunday night without Daddy......hooray!

Coming home!!!

I'm coming home and will be there on Sunday the 30th late at night!!!

I can't wait to hold Tiffany and play with Aidan.

Love you all,

Aidan is 10 months old!

Aidan and I spent the entire day together on his 10th month b-day! Aidan must have been excited too because he woke up earlier than normal....wide awake and ready to play at 5:15 AM. After his morning nap, we went to Baja Fresh and I ate lunch quickly and then we went to the train station. I fed Aidan lunch while he sat up in his stroller and we waited for a train....when the train came through finally, I was holding Aidan and he got excited and started kicking his feet. We can hear trains from our house and I always say, "Aidan, do you hear the train?" Just within the last two weeks, when we hear the train's horn, Aidan looks toward the window when I say it and gets excited. So it may sound corny but I thought it would be fun and a good learning experience for Aidan..which it was. Aidan saw a butterfly while we waited and put his hand out. He's so smart! Before dinner, we went to farmer's market at the mall and walked around. I took Aidan out of the stroller at the mall, we sat on a bench and watched the fish in the coi pond they have there. We had a fun day together...only thing that would have made it better is if Tim were here to play with us.

The good news is that we are in single digit countdown territory baby....only 9 days until Daddy comes home!!!! Yippee skippy!! Tim flys home next Sunday arriving at LAX late on Sunday night. We can't wait, it truly sucks when your best friend is so far away and on a completely opposite schedule.

Aidan had his third tooth come in this past Wednesday, 8/20/09. This tooth is the other top he has one on the bottom and two on the top! Aidan's new thing is he loves to grab my legs while I'm standing and pull on me. It's so cute, not very easy to take my contacts out or put on mascara, but I love it. I love Aidan. I love being a mom, I love being Aidan's Mom.

Happy Birthday Grandma

Happy Birthday Grandma Lori! I hope you and Grandpa had a fun vacation in Arizona! I'm keeping very busy with my teething, babbling and exploration of everything! If there is a drawer that is closed, I'll try and open it! I love to crawl up the stairs and I'm getting better at standing. I hold on to something but now I try to let go of one hand. I do something else that is new....when I'm on the ground playing and I get tired, I just lay down on my back and play with my toys. I tried yogurt for the first time and just like with the egg yolk, I make a very funny face. Mommy said we only have about two weeks until Daddy comes home...yeah! Love you Grandma....hope you and Grandpa are having fun. See you soon.

Aidan's 2nd tooth!

This video is very cute of Aidan starting to talk. I felt his second tooth break through this morning and by the afternoon, Grandma could see it! It's a front top tooth! Aidan tried a tiny bit of hard boiled egg yolk yesterday and then a little more again today. Grandma also has been giving him a little bit of smashed banana almost everyday and he's getting better at eating it. I've attempted to give him juice via a sippy cup but he's not too interested at the moment so I'll just let it be. He's never had juice so I'm sure once he actually sips from the cup, he'll like it. I thought Aidan was asleep for the night but apparently not, ha! I'll continue at some other time.

Happy Birthday Uncle Eric

Happy Birthday Uncle Eric. I heard you're not feeling very good....I hope you get better soon. I had a lot of fun at your house this past weekend playing with Brandon, Kendyl, Evonne, Abbey, Heather and Kevin. Grandma and Grampy pushed me and Brandon in the wagon, it was my first time and I really liked it! Brandon helped you open your b-day presents and you kept stuffing his shirt with the wrapping paper, he looked like a football player!
Love you Uncle.

One month to go!

Aunt Cyndi was able to get this picture of my first tooth. I have had a very busy week. Aunt Cyndi and Brandon spent the week with us which was a lot of fun. They stayed at Grandma and Grampy's so everyday when Mommy dropped me off before work, my cousin and aunt were there waiting for me. Brandon and I played a lot and I'm getting a little bit more brave and hold on to my toys as strong as I can so that Brandon won't take it away from me. He always wants what I have. I sure miss Daddy but Mommy says we only have a month left....yeah!

Gigi, Aunt Gerry and cousins Alex and Ali came over to visit, that was fun. As always, I have a lot of fun playing with Grampy and Grandma. I ate a mashed banana for the first time and am getting better at eating puffs. I took a bath in the big people's bath...heehee at Grandma's house. Grandma helped Mommy give me a bath and then Brandon got in and again, he wanted all the toys! Cuz does love me though because he kept hugging me and when I would crawl, Brandon would stop walking and crawl with me, he's my buddy.

The Bunch's came over on Sunday and Caitlan and Courtney played with me. Caitlan brought her hermit crab! I showed off in my jumper. Scott put up another gate so now Mommy won't let me go in the kitchen....I'm NOT happy about that and I cry when Mommy is in the kitchen and I'm not.

What's going on in there???? Mommy and I started to watch Nascar on Sunday but it got rained out so we just played. I like to get into things I'm not suppose the tissue box and attempting to tear Mommy and Daddy's magazines up. My Mommy is quick though and she is constantly reorganizing so I just have to work harder at finding things she doesn't want me to have. It's fun being a baby!

I can't wait for August to fly by and then Daddy will be home and first birthday will be here soon! Yippee!!!!
