Trimming the Tree

Mommy needs special eggnog every night just to get through all the “No, no, no, no touch’s.” Trimming the tree and toddlers are such fun, ha!

Now that Aden is mobile, how do I keep him occupied?

Aden is now increasingly fast and mobile. He follows us around the house. We have done a decent job of babyproofing, but we find that when we cannot chase him we put him in his playyard. Which of course he hates because; dammit Mom!, he wants to be movin’!

Traveling with baby to Downtown Disney for the first time this weekend. How this mom prepares for one squirmy kid.
Disney this weekend! Well, actually Downtown Disney to be precise. But it is close enough and Aden won’t know the difference. We are going to try out the new restaurant, T-REX, which we have heard lots of wonderful things about. I’m a closet paleontologist so I’ll pretend that I’m twelve and get in the sandpit with the kids to dig for bones. (Yea, I do know that I don’t look anywhere near 12.)

Aden and his spoons.
After reading my post about Aden’s favorite toys, a very special friend sent us a set of wooden utensils for Aden to play with. He absolutely loves them! He can’t put them down.
