Ok, so I promised they are =-)

Aiden was not too interested in eating dinner, but found making a mess if dinner much more interesting. Needless to say, the onesie was unable to be salvaged LOL As much as I enjoyed watching Aiden try and eat like a big boy, Nathan was not too sure about the mess hehehe
As most parents know, toys are subject to regular switch outs. So, we have a basket in the corner of the living room with a variety of toys. This also allows me a place to keep all the toys at the end of the day so I can see my floor again. Now that Aiden is so mobile, this basket usually ends up tipped over with every toy in it all over the floor. So much for a neat place to have the toys stay.

Saved the best for most favorite picture! Aiden has these two balls that he bats around the floor and chases after. They ended up under a toy that has three legs. As the smart kid he is, he just crawled under and grabbed the balls and crawled out the other side. I have a picture of him under the toy; however, this was the next picture after I asked him "Now, how did you get through there silly?" He laughed SO hard and I just about melted when I got this picture. He is such a joy to me and could not imagine what my life would be like without him. I am definately one proud momma!

Nap time

So, I have a quick minute to update while Aiden is napping. We have been one busy group the last couple of weeks. First, I celebrated my 24th birthday on the 13th...thank you to everyone who made my birthday special!!! We also have a new addition to our house. A 75 gallon salt water fish tank. We obtained it from a co-worker of Nathan's and are SO excited to have been given such an awesome gift. There is still lots to do to get it up and running before we can get more fish, but Aiden sure loves it LOL! This upcoming week will be my last full time week, then I will officially become part time...WOOHOO!! I am still not sure if that will mean that we will be together as a family more or not, but I am so happy to be able to be home more.

Aiden is still not walking, but he sure has gotten brave in the last few weeks. He has no hesitation when he wants to get to something. If it is close enough, he will let go of whatever he is holding onto and reach for the next thing. If he is too far, he quickly drops to the floor and crawls over (mostly on hands and knees now!) Today he is 11 months old...not sure if he will be walking by a year at this point. We have started planning his first birthday which has got to be the most overwhelming thing. Not the actual planning part, but that my little baby is going to be 1 YEAR OLD!

I will post more pictures soon.

I want DADDY!

Aiden has finally done it...last night, he did not want anything to do with me, he just wanted Daddy. It was so sad!! I had a massage after work (my only gift to myself that I enjoy once a month...thanks to insurance! hehe) so Nathan was on nighttime duties. Mind you, Aiden is now 10 1/2 months and Nathan has yet to give him a bath by himself =) When I got home, Aiden was all clean, in PJ's and done with dinner. We played for a little while then it was to bed...we thought. He wanted nothing to do with bed. After about 45 minutes of crying, Nathan brought him back into the living room to calm him down (sometimes he just needs to know we are still there and will be out in seconds with us around lol). When Nathan handed Aiden to me and walked away, Aiden instantly started crying and reaching for Daddy! I was very sad that my little man has grown up to have a preference and that Mommy just wasn't cutting it =( I will get over it, plus there will be many other occations that I will get the cold shoulder from Aiden as he gets older!

Also, we are very proud of Daddy's accomplishment of taking care of Aiden from when he woke up to when he went to bed...WAY TO GO!! =D
