Ummmm...Hello Aidan?????

Remember those days when you have a baby who screams for five hours straight.....Then your husband comes home and very kindly tells you to go take a hot bath......You fill the tub, begin to soak.......then you see the door knob slowly turn, your two year old walk in, gets excited because he sees water, takes off his own clothes, his own diaper, then climbs into the bath with you. Of course this is followed with a panic attack with you trying hard to recall your Human Growth and Development class to remember if this is age appropriate or not.....Ya.....That's what I call relaxing.

Ryla laughing

Over the last couple of weeks Ryla has started laughing a lot. I LOVE to hear her laugh. It is so precious. Here is a little video we were able to get of it.

Progressive Dinner

Over the weekend Cliff and I planned a progressive dinner for ourselves and 4 other couples. 3 of the couples are Church of Christ youth ministers and their wives in the area. Cliff works with these ministers on a monthly basis so it was really nice to get together with them outside of youth rallies and for me to meet and spend time with their wives. Our friends Johnny and Laura went to. Johnny does a lot of the song leading for the rallies so the other couples have had the chance to get to know him and his wife as well. It ended up being a lot of fun. Here are some pics of our night.

Cracking the "Aidan" Code

Our little guy's vocabulary seems to be booming lately. Everyday he is saying more and more words and it is so fun to hear. He is starting to speak in full sentences and more clearly. We can now have a conversation with him on the phone and discuss his day.....So much fun to be able to hear about what is on his mind. Of course there are still many words that are not as clear and there are also the "Aidan words" that he has made up for certain things. We have been able to crack the code for the most part.....
So here they are....

"GaGa pease" .......I'm hungry
"Izz".....................Pacifier
"BaBa"..................Sippy Cup
"To B On".............To Infinity and Beyone
"Dank U"..............Thank You
"Goo Goo"............Yogurt
"Dadan"...............Aidan
"K".......................Aunt Kelli
"Chaw Mill"..........Chocolate Milk
"Wyla"..................Ryla
