DunDunDun Dun Dun Dun DUUUUUUUN

So Aaden is a super funny, super adorable, super smiley, super happy little man. He rarely cries {although when he does it is usually a MELT DOWN!} and is the sweetest little guy ever.

I love my days with him just the two of us. We snuggle, laugh, play piano, bounce, roll on the floor, eat a lot {yes, both of us} laugh uncontrollably, smile contagiously, and Mommy tries just about anything to get the next Aaden smile or cackle or even adorable sound. It is amazingly wonderful being home together!

About a week ago I started bouncing Aaden on my knee. He immediately LOVED it, and now if you even put him close to your knee he begins giggling and bouncing himself. It is insanely cute.

Nana caught hold of this while we were over on Sunday, and I happened to have my video handy for the fun. ENJOY!

Great Grandma Nomalee

Oh what a gift it is to go and visit grandma and see her in a good mood. She was laughing and smiling and playing with Aaden. I loved it!!!! Aaden loved it too!!!!

When she saw us her face lit up to Christmas Tree status. It was heartwarming. When she saw Aaden she asked ... "Aen" right!?! It was sooo close. I squeezed her extra tight and kissed her sweet head a few extra times tonight. Time is so precious. I literally could of stayed there all night ... I simply didn't want to leave. She was in good spirits which makes my heart warm. I miss the "good ole' days! I really really do.

Gracious Heavenly Father, you are all knowing. Thank you for your provision even amongst the darkest hour. Please watch over my precious Grandma. For she is a gem who spent all her "good brain years" worshipping your name. I long for the day when I enter your pearly gates and see her smiling face and carry on a conversation with her again. Oh what a celebration that will be. Thank you for so many wonderful wonderful memories of her. Thank you for allowing her to bless my life in so many ways. May you keep her in your arms all the days of her life for it is there I too find comfort. I love you Lord.

We love you Grandma.

Our Happy Turtle

I adore this shirt!
I swear it is one of the cutest little onesies on A.

He has an acorn squash face.

He doesn't look like he is very happy, but I promise it is just Mommy Camera error.

I think he is ready to go back!

Anyone else???


Playing with all his Valentine's Day goodies!!

Mr. A-Dorable!

Some how the nickname "A" is perfect for our sweet Aaden.
He is A-mazing, A-wesome, A-stounding ... they all fit. {come on smile! you know you want to!}

I love the matching hat!

He is also Mr. A-dorable ... just look at those big blue eyes and rosy cheeks.
* SIGH * {I think we have a future heartbreaker on our hands!}

Happy Half Birthday!!!

Oh yes, who can avoid celebrating such a sweet little man?
Not me!!!

So, we invited the Grandparents and Unckie Michael over and had a mini-shindig to celebrate 6 months of cuteness. I made a sweet little party hat, baked a chocolate cake with yummy frosting, and daddy grilled hot dogs. We took lots of photos of my precious boy, and reminisced all together.

It is a wonderful blessing to have family so close to us. They love our Aaden so very much and we thank God for them. 

Mommy & Aaden

A very happy family!!

Aaden and Grandad

Aaden and Nana

I think all the festivities wore our sweetheart out.
He conked out in the middle of celebrating.

To Our Little Love:

You have added a whole new world of adventure into our lives Aaden James. The last 6 months have been so much fun. We are so very proud of the happy, content, smiley, go with the flow baby you are. Your smile melts our hearts, and your laughter warms our soul.
We thank God every single night for blessing us with you! May he continue to bless you life as you grow sweet boy. Daddy and Mommy cannot wait until Jesus is an active part of your life. Oh what a celebration that will be!!!! 

Always remember :

we love you forever
we like for always
as long as you're living
our baby you'll be!

Daddy and Mommy

Along For The Ride

Normally while out and about Aaden rides in his carseat but yesterday he got to ride in the cart for the very first time.

He did really good and loved the attention.


and for pure entertainment we took a detour to the fitting room. As you can see full length mirrors create loads of adorable entertainment!!!
