Florida Trip 08

The "Cheese Face"
Sitting in his new cabana on the beach...trying to give me the face once again!

We have just returned from visiting Adam's parents in Jacksonville, Florida. We left on Friday and returned on Sunday evening. It was a short trip but we had a great time! We were even able to go to the beach on Saturday because the temperature reached 85 degrees!!!

Aidan is really dying to do some serious crawling. For some reason, he always gets one of his legs caught under him. When he manages it to get it out, he just crawls backwards...or should I say, pushes himself backwards with his hands. I think it will be just a few more weeks before he has mastered it and then we won't be able to stop him.

Work on our new kitchen continues. I never knew a remodel would take such time. I am currently without a sink and washing dishes in my bath tub. A small price to pay for the beautiful finished product that is close by (I HOPE).

I am attaching a few new pictures of the little guy. He now realizes when he is having his picture taken and has what we like to call a "cheese" face. Like when you say "say cheese" when you are taking a picture. It is quite comical and absolutely adorable!

Easter Weekend 08'

We had a wonderful easter weekend here in Charlotte with the Decot clan. Helene and Nicole Decot (April's aunt and cousin) were in town and met Aidan for the first time. The girls enjoyed a weekend of pampering and shopping! Adam has been working hard on re landscaping our yard. It has really turned out beautiful!!! We had easter dinner at my mom and dad's and Aidan had his first taste of mashed potatoes. He is doing very well with his crawling, we are all just wondering when he is going to decide to crawl forwards...right now he has only mastered the reverse!!! Aidan has learned to wave "buh bye" and clapped for his dad when he won a game of horse shoes at a friends house over the weekend. Such a smart little guy. We are leaving this Friday to visit Adam's parents in Jacksonville, Florida. They have not seen Aidan since November. I can't believe he will be 10 months old in exactly 2 weeks. Where has the time gone?

Welcome to our blog!!!

Hello friends and family...we have been getting lots of complaints that we don't have a way to fill everyone in our what's going on in our lives...especially when it comes to Aidan. So here we are with a new blog and a new place to post pictures of the little guy!!! I promise to be better about updating and posting pics than I was on our original baby website!
