I CANNOT believe IT!!!

I am sitting here, working on my little checklist for Aidan's birthday party and it amazes me he is going to be two years old a week from today! Like, seriously where has the time gone???
I know, I know I reacted this exact same way last year when he turned one.
I sometimes can't grasp the fact that I have a child, let alone a soon to be two year old. Your first child has to be the one you make the most mistakes with. We didn't know anything about this before Aidan. So you live and you learn and we've tried our best and I think for being one of the world's biggest parenting project's probably known to man, he has turned out to be one hell of a kid.
So this year he turns two. I am grateful for every moment we have had, the good, the bad and the ugly. Aidan, baby, you made us a family. We love you!

I've got the world on a string...

I love my life. I am such a lucky girl. I am currently blogging in my parents courtyard, sitting in an overstuffed patio chair, surrounded by gorgeous pink hydrangeas, listening to the Michael Buble CD, watching my amazingly cute son play in on old galvanized bucket filled with water (our version of a baby pool), drinking a glass of wine and chatting with my wonder mother who is cooking baked ziti for all the boys. That's a scene isn't it?
"What a world, what a life"...

Dada Dada Dada

You would think Aidan just learned how to saw Dada today. He has been repeating it over and over and over and quite frankly I wouldn't mind if something bad came out of his mouth at this point. Haha, in all honesty it's great he's finally getting some words out. His "uh oh" is probably the sweetest thing I have ever heard. I can't wait until he starts saying more. I have this funny southern drawl that I imagine is his in my head. I automatically assume he is country. I mean he is his fathers son. J/K Love you and your son that madly adores you!!!! You deserve every bit of love our little guy has for you! You are a wonderful father and a wonderful provider for our family! No wonder "Dada" is his favorite word and his favorite person.

Thinking about this blog thing...

I was talking with my BFF Amanda today (as we were on one of our million journeys to who knows where) about what it would take to have a successful blog. I don't think I really gave it a good try the first time around. Is my life interesting enough that people would actually read a blog I wrote? There isn't tremendous drama or tragedy in my life, I'm not popping out kids like it's going out of style (although if I thought I had the energy I would), I am not this magnificent chef that can blog new recipes I whipped up in my free time. So what would I blog about? I still haven't come up with an answer. Maybe that's just it though. If I just try to blog about what's going on in my life or what I'm thinking at the moment, it might come out semi interesting. So here is goes...
