These days with Aidan

So, I can't believe my son is closer to 2 now. He is growing everyday. His new thing is squealing at the top of his lungs. It is like a piercing sound-which is not fun. He is eating like crazy. However, he will only eat veggies if they are mixed in with something else. He loves drinking out of a straw or a "big" cup. No more sippy cups for him. He has such a personality and will let you know when he doesn't like something. He loves to give hugs and kisses, but only on his time. I love watching him and Jeremi play. Now that he is bigger she is paying alot more attention to him. He loves to be in her room, especially when she has music going. He loves to dance. If her door is shut he will go and knock on it until she opens it. He can reach the handle but hasn't figured out how to turn it yet. He is talking alot more now. Bobby is teaching him the vowels. They will go around saying, a,e,i,o,u all the time. He is definitely repeating everything you say. His favorite word right now is trash. He will found the smallest thing on the floor just so he can say trash and go throw it away. I am hoping that if won't be long until we can start potty training. When one of us goes to the restroom he comes in there and starts pulling his diaper off. I have sat him on his seat a couple of times but he just sits there. He definitely knows what toilet paper is for. He pretends to wipe when he is sitting on the toilet. Since he has had diaper rash a couple of times, he has some Cars underwear that I put on him to "air" out. He loves wearing them. He has started Little Gym. At first, he was not too interested, but now loves it. At least, loves doing what he wants to do. He is quite the dare devil. I just can't believe he is growing up so fast. Our neighbors just had a baby and it made me think back to when I had him. It seems so long ago. I just love him so much.

Kemah-here we come!

This weekend we had to start on Jeremi's history project. She has to visit at least 3 historical places in Texas-get pictures-info- and write a report and do a posterboard. We were going to go to the Blue Bell factory but for some weird reason they are closed on Saturdays. Then, she wanted to go to the Prison Museum in Huntsville. We were trying to do anything but that. We have been stuck inside for awhile with Aidan being sick and wanted to get out and have fun. Then, she mentioned the Moody Mansion. We went there, did what we needed to do, and then decided to go to Kemah. I have never been before, so I was excited. We decided if we were going to ride some of the rides that we better eat first. We ate at The Flying Dutchmen. It was good, but nothing wonderful-except for the price. We then ventured over to the Aquarium. We went through the Stingray Reef and watched as Bobby and Aidan touched the Stingrays. Aidan was loving it when they would come up out of the water wanting food. After our food had settled, we started toward the amusement rides. Aidan rode some things and then Jeremi and I rode the roller coaster. It was funny because Jeremi had never ridden one before. I love roller coasters, however, this time, not so much. My neck is so stiff and sore that I think my roller coaster days are over. We then decided to ride the train around the area, eat a funnel cake and go home. It was a long day, but so much fun with the family.
