No fun here

Aiden has officially been sick...and apparently he wasn't going to be nice about it. On Monday afternoon, Aiden started vomiting. It was quite a bit in a short time, so we decided to take him to the doctors just in case. They ran some blood tests and gave us directions then sent us home. He was able to keep down fluids for the rest of the evening (very little amount) and at 10pm that night, the doctor called and instructed us to wake him up and take him to the ER...he was concerned that Aiden might have appedicites. After about 5 hours in the ER, we came home. Everything appeared normal. Nathan and I both were home with him on Tuesday and he seemed fine. Kept food and fluids down throughout the day. Wednesday comes along, and we are back to square one. Through the day Wednesday and Thursday, we battled through vomit and diarehea. By Friday, Aiden had got past that and is now just dealing with a cough (that he has now given to me!).

We do feel SO furtunate that we got through a year with no sicknesses, but it sure would have been nice if the first wasn't so scary! Otherwise, we are all doing well and have been enjoying some nice weather...FINALLY! =-) We even were able to take Aiden to the park a couple of times. This kid LOVES the slide! I swear we could spend hours just going down the slide! LOL

I will update again soon with park pictures =-)

Nathan and I are both guilty with this one. Whenever we are playing with Aiden, feeding him, entering a room he is in, pretty much always we will growl at him. Not in a mean way but more of a playful "grrrrr" with the face of course lol! It always has provoked a smile in him...until he realized he can do it back! Now, if you come in the room, he will growl at you with the face or just the word. It has really made Nathan and I laugh but I will admit that it scares me a bit. As long as it stays playful I guess. I have yet to be able to get it on video or picture. I will work on that.

With the weather getting a little nicer, we have been able to play outside a lot more. Aiden loves being outside and seeing people walking their dogs. For his b-day, he got a little car that we can push him around in (above) and he thinks it is the coolest!!! The weather this weekend is supposed to be nice and warm, so I want to take Aiden to the park...his first park trip!!!!

Yesterday, we were out to dinner a little bit later in the evening then Aiden would have liked. By the end of dinner, he was getting a little fussy and antsy, so I told him we were going to go home and play with his new firetruck car. It sings this VERY cheesy song that will instantly get stuck in your head, so I sang it, "I see a firetruck, a big red shiny firetruck"...immediately after, Aiden rocked back and forth (that's his dancing) and sang "I see a firetruck"!!!! I usually think I just heard him weird, but Nathan heard the exact thing!!!!! We both laughed uncontrollably and I, of course, cried. =-) It's amazing at how quick he is growing!!!
