School Days

Aiden and I both started school this week. On Sunday we had our first faculty meeting of the year at Golden Eagle. I don't think that I have ever worked with such a lovely group of women. They all seem so genuine and kindhearted. Working in a christian environment really makes a tremendous difference. Aiden's teacher's name is Ms. Venita and she is such a wonderful woman. She has five children of her own and used to have an in home day care. She is one of those people that you can instantly tell how much she loves God. So I never worried about leaving Aiden. In fact I wouldn't worry about leaving him with anyone on staff. He did pretty good. Whenever I would peek in (as I did often) he was always being well taken care of.

This is how I found him today when I came to pick him up. He was taking a stroll with his good buddy Noah, flirting with some nearby teachers. Noah is my friend Laura's little boy. We are co-teaching together this year, and this is the first time either of us have left the boys. It has been nice to have someone who understands why you can't concentrate on anything but him for the first part of the day. Yeah for Celebration Baptist!

These are the days of our lives...

Hello out there! So here is the latest Kagy scoop. That cute rolling over thing that Aiden was doin'- not so cute anymore. Before his rolling trick, at bed time he would just conk out with his arms in the air and his legs spread wide. Now, he rolls. Then he gets MAD!!! He gets on his stomach and gets stuck and screams. Our bedtime routine has not been so routine. I keep telling myself "this too shall pass." Lately Mark has had to work quite a bit due to the upcoming football season. Well this has not made his sweet Coletrane very happy. I think he is feeling a bit neglected. I was always very proud of the fact that we had a puppy that never chewed anything up. I thought that after a year we were in the clear. I was wrong. He chewed his dog bed that I made him to pieces. There was stuffing everywhere, then he chewed a travel size bar of soap and box up out of Mark's suitcase. Then he walked across the living room the other day with Mark's referee hat in his mouth - chewed to shreds. The funny thing was that he did it with such ease like "what are you going to do about this?" Dumb mutt. Don't tell Mark I said that. :-)Finally I have contracted a disease over the past couple of years that I like to call stupid ear syndrome. Every 6 months or so I seem to develop major ear infections. I take all precautionary measures but the still form. They swell up and close shut and I can't hear a thing. Not to mention it is extremely painful. That is what I have done this week. SO I am done being a sissy. That's what's up with the Kagy's.

My Space junkie

One of our friends posted a blog about his wife creating a my space account a while back. I commented and at the time could not really understand what the big deal was about. Since then I have completely become captivated by this . You can really get carried away with how much time you spend on it. It is completely addicting. You can look at one persons page then move to another, then another. Before you know it, you are communicating with someone you haven't seen in ten years. I can't stop- I need a 12 step program- maybe I should call Dr. Phil. Hello-my name is Danielle (sniff, sniff), and I am a My space junkie.

Mr. Snugs

Lately Aiden has really taken to this stuffed giraffe/blanket. When he gets upset Mark or I will place the blanket on him or in his arm and he will almost instantly calm down. I was calling this his "lovey." I have since decided that lovey was pretty girly so now he will be known as Snugs as in Snuggles. Here is Aiden with Snugs and also with Aunt Lauren.

I had fun at your house last night Lidy!

Roly Poly Aiden

For so long Aiden has been in the squishy little infant stage. He didn't really do much, just really liked to be held. This was okay with me for I envisioned having a little boy that loved to snuggle with his mama. Now all of a sudden he is turning into a big boy right under my nose! Now instead of being held he would much rather play on the floor so he can look around. He also turns his head to anything that is making noise. This may be the dog, it may be Mark. He just wants to check it out. Just the other day I had to put away some of his sleepers that he is too long for and it made me realize how fast the past three months have gone. I know I've said this over and over- but it is a hard thing to accept. They do grow up.

His latest accomplishment happened yesterday. I guess he decided that he was tired of looking at those silly baby toys and he rolled over to his tummy. Since then he refuses to lay still. Whether he is on his back or his tummy he is trying to rock to roll to the other side. He hasn't done it since, but he is working on it. I guess all that eating he has been doing has made him into a little strong man. It made me think of this song that I heard the Dixie Chics sing once.

Roly Poly eatin' corn and taters
Hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly gnawin' on a biscuit
As long as he can chew it it's okay

He can eat an apple pie and never even bat an eye
He likes anything from soup to hay
Roly Poly,
Daddy's little fatty
I bet he's going to be a man some day

Roly Poly, scarmbled eggs for breakfest
Bread and jelly twenty times a day
Roly Poly, eats a hearty dinner
He needs lots strength to sing and play

He's up at dawn to do the chores
Runs both ways to all the stores
He works up an appetite that way
Ro-oly Poly
Daddy's little fatty
Fatty's going to be a man some day

"Fatty's going to be a man some day." Yikes!
