Phew- made it 30 days. It was harder to post everyday than I thought it was going to be. It helped that I am not working. I know I wouldn't have been successful if I was working. I am sad June is over. It means I am that much closer to going back to work (August 11- not that I'm counting or anything). Although, we are completely off schedule...which has been nice in a way, but I don't get much accomplished when both of us sleep until 8:15 in the morning! I guess that's what summer break is all about.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Blue skies, hardly a cloud in sight. You could even see the moon most of the day. A perfect day for Aiden to find his shadow. It was the funniest thing and I am so glad I thought to bring my camera outside.
I can do anything better than you.
It's following me
Maybe I can run away (I can't run, but I'm gonna try)...I turned the corner- did I lose him? I love being outside with Aiden. He is helping me rediscover so many fun things in the great outdoors. I am thankful he enjoys it so much and am thankful today is another gorgeous day (without 90+ degree temperatures). As soon as he wakes up from his morning nap, we are headed out!

The latest injury- a nose dive into the sidewalk. A bit of road rash on the tip of his nose Coffee table: 2 (we had another incident last night) Stairs: 1 (ugh- don't ask)
Aiden: 0 and plenty of scrapes and bruises to prove it
Aiden doesn't seem to mind!
We had a great day- beautiful weather, not too hot to hang out, go to the pool, and take a long walk after dinner. The rest of the week seems to be shaping up to be a great week of gorgeous weather. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I had a little break tonight and it was just what the tooth fairy ordered. These darn molars are wrecking havoc on this household and I was glad I got to sneak out for a few hours. We had a girls' night out and saw The Proposal. It was a good, light-hearted movie. Aiden went to his Auntie Dana's house. He always has fun and while I am thrilled he gets excited when I get back, I am glad (and thankful) that I he is comfortable and relaxed there. They love having him so it's a win win situation. And on Monday I will take care of Stephanie while Dana and Scott go to see the movie- it's nice to be able to trade babysitting!
Hope everyone had a great Saturday. I am off to try and get Aiden in bed. He is a bit wound up from being out until 9:00! I will leave you with a picture from bedtime yesterday. Most of the time, you wouldn't know he was teething. Of course I had just put him in that onesie for bed so the nice ring of drool hadn't formed yet!

Just a few pics that I hadn't posted from this week that I like. Molar teething is in full force. Aiden slept over 12 hours last night but still had a rough day. He had a complete meltdown at the pool, came home, only slept for an hour and had two more meltdowns before dinner. So we drove to CVS and the car wash. Talk about Friday fun. Loading up on Motrin, Tylenol and teething tablets. I am thankful he slept well last night and hope he does it again tonight. Of course, he was bed when I started this post, and is now back downstairs. *sigh* Girl's night out tomorrow. Surely I can make it 22 more hours. Aiden is mostly happy, but when he's not, it's been extremely trying. I don't think the extreme heat and humidity helps. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Aiden's new favorite place to climb into...
Showing off his walking skills in his G & R outfit!

We went to the new splash park in town. It's about 5 minutes from home. It's nice, clean, and no topless women. Desperate housewives, maybe, but definitely no one topless! I am thankful we were able to meet friends there. I am blessed that these are co-workers I can also call friends. Aiden was the youngest by about 6 months but he once again held his own.
Hey ladies, those grapes sure do look good!
And just because I love this picture of my friend Jan's son...don't even think about coming over here for my food, Aiden!

Aiden loves my crocs and now he loves his. When we were in Viet Nam, mine were always his toy of choice. Nasty when you consider they walked all over the streets of Ca Mau, Saigon and Hanoi (yes, I washed them, but it was still nasty). Now Aiden can play with his own crocs. Off and on. On and off. He loves them.

*If you follow my tweets (mainly my JK8 gals), the picture is at the end....wait for it ladies!
What big bear? I don't see the swimming bear...And forget trying to take a group picture with Mr. Independent.
It was HOT so we ended the day in the splash area. It was all fun and games....
