Apple picking time

This past weekend we were able to squeeze in some time to do some apple picking. Made me happy because I was afraid that we weren't going to be able to go since our schedule is so crazy lately, but we were able to go before lunch time on Sunday.

This apple was his "buddy" the whole time we were there.

OK Mom, lets take this one home!!

You got some stuff right there. Here let me get it for you.

House Projects

Seth put up a new light on the front of the house. The original one was probably the original light from when the house was built 40years ago. It was old, rusted and just plain butt ugly. The new light looks much better and it matches the house better since it's black like the shutters.

13 mos now..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Aiden is now 13mos old! I still can't believe how fast everything has gone by. He is also learning alot of new things. Two weeks after his first birthday he started walking. We are almost transitioned over to milk and we are also using our sippy cup more and more. Aiden is also starting to say a few more words and some words he may not say but he knows what they mean.

mama, dada, baba, ba(ball), num num (food), nigh nigh (tired), boo(book), yeeyee(Lily-the cat), teedee(kitty), coo(cookie), ah dah(all done), goo(good), up, yeah, doh(dog)

buttons, tree,

He also now loves his shape sorter toys and anything else he can put things into. He's getting so big.

Wish List Wednesday

I need just 1 more hour every dau to fit in some exercising, ok who am I kidding I need way more then an hour every day to get everything done. I know that would be a great help to me to lose whatever weight I am trying to get rid of and I don't think that is such a big request.

I want new, softer carpet in the family room. Our current carpet is a really rough burbur and crawling around is not so pleasant on the knees. Sorry little man.

New windows for our first floor. We had new windows put in on the second floor this past summer, but I really want new ones for the first floor as well.

Wish List Wednesday

I just saw this wall art in a catelogue and I want 2 of them to go on wither side of my fireplace inthe living room since its a Red/Gold theme room.

Next summer Aiden will be all over the place and I really want a playset for him for the backyard.

I am finding that alot of my shoes no longer fit me since having Aiden and the ones that do fit are getting old and wore out so I need new shoes as well.

Summer fun.

We were in Walmart yesterday and we happend to walk into the seasonal area to get some grass seed to lay down for the fall when I happen to come across this little gem.

Seth was looking to get Aiden a sprinkler so use next summer in addition to using it to water the lawn. It was marked down, but not as much as I would have liked it to be, but in the end Seth said that we could get it for next summer. I could see the wheels turning in his head when he looked at the box so maybe I will have some pictures of Seth using it as well. :)

Teething is the worst.

I just hope that it goes by fast and that Seth & I don't have to worry about it for the next year. Aiden is getting one of his eye teeth on his bottom right side. It's the first pointy one and it has been nothing but hell for him. He has been cranky all weekend, won't really eat much and has been chomping on his fingers non stop. Since I can see the tooth bud underneath the gums Seth has been really good about letting Aiden have his binkie more this weekend since it helps him to feel better. We have been trying to ween him from using it. We also had to start up with the Orajel and continue the Motrin regimin from the ear infection to help with the gum pain. I hope it pops soon because it just wipes him out, was sleepy all weekend, and he can get back to feeling like himself again.

Making new strides!

This past Thursday Aiden took his first steps!!! And we got it on video to boot!!! I am soo excited. I know that he wants to walk and I think that he is starting to get frustrated that he isn't doing it yet. Friday he also stood up on his own from the floor as well. I know that once he can do that then it will be easier for him to get walking because then he doesn't have to rely on being be near something to get his balance before walking. My little man is getting so big. **tear**

Wish List Wednesday

err...rather Thursday.

To ask me what is on my wish list. There are alot of things.

I would love to have the Acura MDX. I had an Acura and they are great cars. Hold up well and don't need that much maintence. A frost blue color would be nice.

What big teeth you have!

So the 8th tooth has finally popped through and I can breathe a sigh of relief because that means that Aiden's cranky period has passed for the time being and we can go back to normal. I still can't believe that he got 6 teeth in 4 weeks. To a point it was better because then he got the pain out of hte way but at the same time he was really miserable and it must have really hurt him to have that many pushig through all at once. He looks so cute with all the tops of his teeth poking out of the gums though. I'll try to post a picture of it. Hopefully with the new teeth he will start to show a new interest in more table food because we are seriously lacking in that department. All I can do is offer him the food and if he eats it then he eats it. He'll catch up.

A Lapse in time...

As usually time is getting hte best of me and I have lost track of where I am. Aiden is getting bigger and bigger and it is really hard for me to believe that in less then 3 weeks he will be a year old. Here are a few shots that have been taken in the past few weeks.

Just eating my mat.

Caught me standing by myself.

My very first birthday present.

I love my ball!!

Look at those top teeth!! There is another one on the side too.

He's sitting in my chair!

Can I sit on your lap?

I just have to AW Aiden at the moment. It was really cute. Seth came home a few minutes after Aiden finished eating dinner. They were playing on the floor and I gave Seth a bottle of juice to see if Aiden wanted a drink after dinner. We are trying to get Aiden to hold the bottle himself so it will be easier to transition him over to a cup, but he was just playing with it so Seth took it away from him. Well apparently Aiden really did want a drink because he crawled over to Seth sitting on the floor, crawled into his lap and then proceeded to drink his juice. I wish I took a picture of it. He just wanted to cuddle a bit while he had a drink.

Weekend on Cape Cod

Our first trip to the Cape and Aiden had a blast.

Going to the Beach
Aiden loved the water and the sand...and the taste of the sand. He had a great time splashing and digging around.

Pool time
Since Aiden loves to take a bath I knew that he was going to have a blast in the pool. He even showed off his killer swim moves. I'll have to start taking him to the pool at the gym.

To kill some time we went to the Zooquarium. It's a small Aquarium with a petting zoo. Nothing to spend all day at; an hour tops, but the little kids love it.

I love the fishies!


My neice Amanda taking a pony ride.

I want to do a pony ride....


I need this sign for my home.

Backyard BBQ

Sunday July 5th we had a family barbeque down the Cape. It was nice and relaxing and the cousins all got to play with each other.


Laura and Amanda

Playing ball.


And this is why we will be strapping you into the highchair from now on.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Our first 4th of July and it went by so fast. I kind of feel like we didn't do anything special with him,but we did have fun playing with some new toys and playing in the backyard for the first time since for the first time in a while it was nice enough to go outside. We also found out that we have a birds nest with eggs in our Rose of Sharon tree.

Can we go out now?

Ready for a ride!
