Aiden and I have been really busy lately. I lost my cell phone early this week and had to get a new one. So if you tried calling me and I didn't answer, you might want to try again. I'm not ignoring anyone!

Yesterday Aiden said "snack" at daycare. They have snack every day around 3. Linda is always the one who prepares it and goes to the nursery to get the kids. When Linda came to the door yesterday, Aiden was waiting for her and said "snack" as soon as he saw her! There were three adults in the room and they all said the word came out clear as a bell. Of course, I wasn't able to get him to do it again. I am really hoping he will use an actual word for me soon!

Of Forks and Food

Aiden must have been hungry today. For lunch he ate applesauce, cottage cheese, tuna salad AND pasta. I didn't think he'd be hungry for dinner but I was wrong! He ate half a bagel with cream cheese, a lot of grapes and some of my tortellini.

He loves using a fork to eat like a big boy but he isn't yet proficient. This weekend we had breakfast out and he spent a lot of time picking up the pieces of scrambled egg and placing them on the fork with his fingers. Today he wanted to use a fork to eat the tortellini. He wouldn't let me feed him and he wouldn't let me hand him the fork. I had to stab the tortellini with the fork and put it back in his bowl. Then he would grab the fork and (proudly) feed himself. It was a slow process but he managed to eat six or eight pieces that way. Mr. Independent!

Photo Roundup

In this collage you can see Aiden having his first popsicle. In case you care, it was a VERY small juice pop and he really liked it.

This collage pretty much shows you what our weekend was like. We did a lot of digging in the dirt and a lot of walking around the neighborhood.

I Want it Now

Aiden is currently trying to get himself outside. Trouble is, he's already eaten dinner, taken a bath and got his pajamas on. He spent a few minutes just trying to reach the doorknob. Since that didn't work, he decided to see what my keys would do for him. They also didn't help and I think he may have given up.

Oh My...

This toy definitely needs to find a new home...

I just caught Aiden sitting in the train table. He was sitting very calmly and it cracked me up. I shouldn't have taken a picture because now he'll probably do it all the time!
