Fall Fun

So… in celebration of Fall,and to amuse myself Aiden and I had a early morning costume photo shoot. Many of our friends have shared costumes with us so there are lots to choose from. Needless to say we had a great time up until Aiden stuck a fall leaf in his mouth. After that incident I decided that the photo shoot was over. I am not into sticking fingers down my child's throat to retrieve things.

Quack, Quack, mom!

This is such a fun age to me. Aiden is extremely interactive and loves to smile and laugh. He also loves to grab my face and kiss me. This is my favorite.

This weekend Mark’s parents came to visit. We had fun up until Sunday morning at 2am when poor Aiden was so stopped up he could not breathe. He went back to sleep at about 6am only after screaming for 4 hours off and on. The rest of the day was not much better. He was hard to console and not much made him happy. I also think that more teeth are adding to the mix.

Check out more pictures that our friend Julie took. Thanks Julie- I love them!

Now I will finish my random thoughts as I have a sick, sleeping baby in my lap. To sleep in my lap while I play blogger, and after his 3 hour nap this aftenoon lets me know that he really is tuckered out.

It's Friday!

Work is going very well. Aiden loves it and so do I. My class started this week and I have the cutest little kids. They are extremely little compared to the kids I have been teaching for the past couple of years so that has taken some getting used to. The other thing that I am used to is having maybe 2 parents show up for orientation. This is not the case at Celebration. Laura, (my co-teacher) and I had close to 40 family members in our room at one time this past Tuesday. Moms, Dads, Grandma's and they all brought their video camera's and camera's. I felt like breathing into a paper bag at one point, but it ended very well. I had 3 mom's ask to be our room mom. It is so nice to have parent involvement.
Aiden is coming home completely worn out from his day. He goes to bed at about 7:30 and I am struggling to wake him up to go to school in the morning. Mark and I usually bring him into our room in the morning and he continues to sleep with the lights on, the news on the t.v. and Mark and I calling his name to wake him up. He is his father's son.

The other thing that happened this week is that Aiden had two little teeth cut through his bottom gum. Today they were hurting him some but with a few teething tablets and baby tylenol we were on our way to smiley land. He is such a sweet boy!
