"Mommy, peepee in potty"

That's right! Aiden is officially potty trained!! =-) The craziest part about it is that HE told me he wanted to go peepee in the potty and from then on, we progressed and he is in undies full time now! He thinks they are very cool and asks me every morning "my undies?" as soon as we get up. Tomorrow will have been one week since he first went potty in his big boy potty and yesterday we had NO ACCIDENTS! I am very proud of my little man and hope that he keeps up the good work...that would be very helpful with the new one coming just around the corner LOL Congrats Aiden on becoming such a big boy!!!!!!

21 weeks...29 weeks

21 weeks pregnant...

29 weeks pregnant!! (same shirt and surprisingly the same pants!)

Although I am measuring a few weeks ahead, it is still amazing to see just how much 2 months shows in my pregnancy! And I still have at least 2 more to go! I will try and keep up the posts of my belly.

Valentines Day

For Valentines Day, Aiden was invited to a PARTY!! It was at a gym called Bounce and Aiden had a blast!! Thanks Addy for the fun day!

Poor Aiden

Shortly after our CA trip, Aiden came down with a stomach bug =-( It was harder on us this time because he can communicate so much better and would ask for food or drinks but couldn't keep it down. He recovered quickly, thankfully, but he was down and out for a few days. We are so lucky that he is a healthy boy and it breaks our heart when he is not feeling well.

Catching up...

Yes, I has been forever since I have updated the blog. The last nearly 4 months have completely flown by. I knew they would with the holidays and all, but I am still surprised when I think about it! Here we are, only 3 weeks away from Aiden's 2nd birthday and only 11 weeks until my due date. So, I will attempt to do a brief overview of the last 4 months =-)

Thanksgiving -

It was my first Thanksgiving where I hosted and cooked the entire meal...I now feel like I am officially considered a wife and mother lol!! Everything was delicious and turned out great! I was very grateful that there were no major issues (just a quick run to the store for a can of green beans haha). We had a great day as a family!!! I am so thankful for being able to stay home with Aiden and have a wonderful husband who provides for us without complaint. I am also very thankful for the support and love of our families. WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

Christmas -

This was the most incredibly exciting Christmas for our little family. Aiden was SO excited about everything...lights, trees, "oma" (snowman), and of course, the presents! He got a workbench from Santa and is very happy to have something to bang on that doesn't get him in trouble lol

He loved his new vacuum the most though =-)

We actually had to hide it from him to be able to get him to open more presents LOL!! He got many gifts including his new "big boy" Cars bedding. When we got back from CA, Aiden was all set up to sleep with his new sheets in his toddler bed!!! He is getting SO big! He loves them and we hear him in his room saying "there's Mater" and "there's McQueen" all the time.

We then went to CA for a couple of weeks to visit friends and family...of course, I failed to get a single picture but we had a great time as always! It is so fun to see my family who isn't around Aiden all the time...they are so surprised and amazed at the changes they see in him each time we come to visit. And we always seem to have developmental milestones on our vacations to CA. This time, Aiden had a HUGE verbal explosion! We couldn't stop him from talking and repeating everything anyone said. And that wasn't left in CA either =-)

Otherwise, life is going great!!!! We are happy and excited for our little girl to be born...oh yeah, guess I forgot to mention that we are having A GIRL! Before we know it, she will be here and our family will be complete!
