The Life of Aiden

Aiden is 7 and 1/2 months old. Time is flying by. He is changing so much every day. I thought I would let you know what he is up to lately.

-Aiden has 3 tall teeth - all on the bottom. They look really funny, but they suit him. You don't get to see them a lot because he seems to enjoy making a straight smile lately.
-He had the funniest sticking up hair - we cut it today. I'm a bit sad about that, but he looks pretty cute.
- He has the biggest, chubbiest most kissable cheeks!
-He is still working on the crawling. Before, he would use only legs and go forwards, then he used only arms and went backwards. Now he is going forward again, but still with his arms only. Someday he will figure it out.
-He can go from lying down to sitting up all by himself.
-He has learned to shake his head NO - and he thinks it's super funny!
-He really likes to growl when he gets excited.
-He is super ticklish and has the funniest laugh.
Anyways, I could go on and on - but here are some pictures - enjoy!

Aiden's New Hair! It made him bawl a LOT!!

Having fun in the tub - with his funny pokey hair!

Enjoying his cookie - and showing his straight smile!

In his new church outfit - so cute!!

Looking out the window - a favorite activity!

Happy Father's Day

Yesterday was Father's Day. I am grateful that we have a special day set aside to thank the father's that we have in our lives. I am so grateful for my own dad. I am the only girl in my family and because of this, me and my dad have always had a special relationship. I have so many awesome memories of fun times that we have had together.

Now that Matt is a father, yesterday was also the first Father's Day that we have really celebrated in our home. Matt is such a great dad. He is always so willing to help out with everything - and he is good at it all too! I love watching Matt with Aiden. I love how he can always make Aiden laugh and smile. I love watching them sing songs and read books together. I love the little games that only Matt can play with Aiden . I also love how happy Aiden makes Matt - there isn't a day that goes by where Matt doesn't say to me - "Wanna know who I love? Aiden!" I love how they already have such a special bond with each other and I know that they will always have that. Aiden is such a lucky boy to have such an incredible man for his father.

Matt and Aiden's first picture together! What a goof-ball!

Happy Birthday Matty!

On June 1, Matt celebrated his 27th Birthday. He calls it his early late 20's - and he is feeling a little bit old now. I can't really argue with him, he kindof is! We had a bit of a birthday celebration for Matt. A bunch of our friends came over for a BBQ, some cake and some RockBand. It was a lot of fun! Matt got a little bit spoiled as well. I got some new shorts, a new belt and some fancy new sunglasses. He got some lovely plants and lots of treats from his family, and Dan and Shalene provided movie passes and more treats! Aiden also got him some pretty nice gifts. He got some icecube trays that are shaped like dentures, some bacon mints (super sick) and this banana guard - which is super funny looking! Thank you everyone for making Matt's Birthday such a fun time! Happy Birthday Matt - we love you!
