Happy 19 months Aidan Kai!

My sweet little Aidan is 19 months old today! Before I know it we will be celebrating his second birthday. Aidan is starting to talk more and more and his personality is shining through more than ever! He has changed a lot in the month that my mom has been here. Speaking of Mimi , she will be leaving tomorrow. We will be so sad to see her go. Aidan has gotten soooo attached to her. He cries whenever he thinks she is leaving. Whenever he gets up in the morning he always asks for his Mimi and he always cuddles up to her in the evenings when he starts getting sleepy.

Aidan can be a handful but he keeps us laughing all day! His favorite thing to do is to get into anything and everything he can get his hands on! He loooves to "plunder". My mom has been riding in the backseat with him during her visit and he loves to get into her purse. He also loves to get into his diaper bag.

As I mentioned up above Aidans personality is shining through more every day. Here are some pics taken in the past few days. His new thing is to squint his eyes and curl up his nose whenever he is getting his picture taken. It is his new "smile". The thing Aidan has around his neck is a monkey pillow ( like a travel pillow only a monkey). Mimi bought it for him. He loves to put it on the wrong way like a neck brace. He holds his head really still and does not move while he has it on this way.

The new "squinty smile" taken tonight at dinner

Squinty smile in all its glory.

Another funny thing Aidan likes to do - stick out his tongue and run his motor.

Aidan sitting in his armchair that Mimi bought him. He loooves it and it already looks like it has been used by 3 kids and not just one.
The sad news is that Mimi is going home tomorrow but the good news is that Clinton is coming home on Monday and Cara comes the same day! We then leave for Hawaii a few days after that!

Gymboree and Seaworld

Mom is still here are we are having a great time. This week we took Aidan to Gymboree, visited Seaworld, went shopping in La Jolla, and went to Balboa Park. Mom is lovin' her some Aidan Kai! He was so cute today when he crawled up on her lap just to cuddle. Mom babysat for me today while I went to the movies where I saw "He's not into you". It was hilarious! Here are some pics...
Last of the whale watching pics...
We went to eat at Chick Fil A after Gymboree. Aidan wanted NOTHING to do with that big ole scary cow.

Playing at Gymboree. Aidan has never really been into the parachute. Whenever Miss Andrea pulls it out he always leaves and does his own thing.

Bubbles! Aidans fav

"Look, did you see those bubbles?"

Another one of Aidans favorite things to do at Gymboree- Jumping on the trampoline.

Mimi just had to purchase the tunnel at Gymboree- Where is Mimi?

Randon Pics

Like I said in the last post, my cousin Sabrina was here visiting for the long weekend. She went home yesterday. We went whale watching on Sunday and didnt see a single whale. However, we DID see between 200 and 400 dolphins. It was really hard to tell because they were jumping out of the water playing. There were dolphins as far as the eye could see! It was sooo beautiful! ( Have I mentioned that one of my favorite things in the world is dolphins!) I didnt get any pics but hopefully Sabrina will email them to me ( did you get that Sabrina). Here are some random pics from the past week.

Mom bought Aidan this super cute horse coat. It is sooo cute. We got oohs and aahs every where we went that day.

I know this pic is blurry but it is one of my favs from Valentines day. Aidan giving his mama a kiss.

This is just a cute one of Aidan playing in his room. I just love this outfit!

Sabrina was happy to get her hands on Mr. A for the first time since November.

Aidans new sit and spin Mimi bought him. I had one as a kid and LOOOOVVED it! Let me tell you they do not make them like they used to! I think China has absolutely ruined the toys for todays youth!

Aidan getting his haircut. I think this is haircut number 4 for him. She cut it way to short. I think I will let it grow out for awhile and just get his bangs trimmed.

Happy Valentines Day !

Happy Valentines Day! My cousin Sabrina arrived here on Thursday and we are having a great time. Today we were supposed to go whale watching but they were already full, so we are going tomorrow. We went to lunch and to La Jolla to see the seals instead. We have a girls night planned for tonight. We will be making steak salad and watching Nights of Rodanthe. I have lots more pics to share and will post later.

Jacobs Birthday

Saturday we went to Jacobs birthday party. We share the same birthday! He had a Wow Wow Wubbzy party and a great time was had by all! There are 4 of us in the Marshall University So Cal Alumni group who have babies within 8 months of each other. Jacob is the oldest at 2, Bella and Aidan fall in the middle, and Jocelyn is the youngest at 16 months. Jocelyn was in Florida with her mommy and daddy and was unable to attend the party. Sorry, the pics are out of order. The Birthday Boy!
