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!

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.

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!

Robin's bird nest.

Some fun at home

Here are just photos of Aiden playing around the house.

I can fold the laundry for you Mommy.

Sewing projects.

With Aiden now pulling up on everything I didn't want him to bang his head too much on things. I know that he is going to do it anyway so to help buffer the pain I made a bumper to go around the coffee table. It seems that lately I am getting pretty good use out of my sewing machine. At least I didn't buy it for nothing.

It's just water under the bridge.....

I should have told her to keep up with the flow of the stream and make her way down river becuase there is not docking at this bridge. First time my mom has seen me since August and after the crap-ass email that I received from her I really wanted to give her a piece of my mind but my cousins high school graduation party was not the right place for it nor was I going to ruinthe party and make a big scene. So in the end when she said that she was still waiting for me to call like I said LAST JUNE, I just shrugged her off. That is when she told me that it was all water under the bridge and that we should just move on. Well I have moved on and she is not part of that. I don't dwell on it. I am not sitting by the phone waiting for said phone call that is never going to happen. And besides the point, she still did not even acknowledge Aiden or show any interest in wanting to hold him. I don't know if it had to do with the fact that my Grandfather was holding him while Seth and I ate our meals and she can't stand him, but even so she never asked to see him or asked how he was doing. You don't want anything to do with my son then I want nothing to do with you. You may not like me but you do not bring my children into the mess.

First birthday here we come!!

Now that I have under 60 days to get everythig planned and the invites have to go out the end of the month. I need to get hopping on finding a theme/party decor. I need to find a place for a canopy tent rental with tables and chairs as well. I did pick out the decorations and placed the order for 95% of the stuff. I also have to pick out the party favors for the kids. This is the what Aiden's first birthday will be decorated with.

Found most of the stuff for the best price at and the rest at two other sites, and My little man is getting so big. Once he turns 1 year he won't be a baby anymore. Ehh...he will always be my baby.
