Oh My!

Elmo is Aaden's favorite show.
We watch it almost every day ... and he really looks forward to it.

This morning however, Elmo was boring! LOL

I'm not sure he is very comfortable ... but it was pretty adorable.

I Want A Refund!!

mmm dinner : buttered noodles, parmesan chicken, homegrown beans, and yogurt bites.

Eating and relaxing with his feet up!!!
Must be the life ...


Mom, there is no more food in my bowl ...

This darn bowl is suppose to stick to his tray.
As you can see that worked well ... talk about an adorable mess!

Splish Splashin at the Mascoutah Pool

Aaden is seriously a water baby!
He {with the only exception being his first bath} has loved the water since he was little bitty. Put him in water he smiles immediately, and then doesn't stop splashing from the moment he gets in until the moment he gets out.

As you know David and I met at a pool, and sadly it closed this year. We were so excited to find another option for family swimming. We can't wait to go again!!!

And ... We're Back!

Last month my memory card reader broke and I was unable to upload any photos I took onto my computer at all. That put everything back a little bit, but we are officially good to go!

So here are a few photos of life around the Watson house ...

Family Zoo Day!
Mommy was CRAVING a funnel cake ... so we made the drive to St. Louis. ;)

Aaden loved the "close encounters" with the puffins

Daddy telling Aaden all about his "Grandad" 

Aaden's first taste of a funnel cake

soooo good :)

He wouldn't stop eating it.


This is the BIG BROTHER shirt I made for Aaden to wear to show our parents we were expecting Watson Baby #2. 

Telling our folks didn't go quite as we expected ... BUT everyone is ready to meet little one in January.

The day was so crazy I didn't even get a photo of Aaden in his shirt :(


This was our celebratory we are pregnant breakfast!
Nutella Croissants with fresh bananas, blueberries and strawberries.

We also took Aaden to his first Shriner's Parade!!!
It was so much fun!!!

Aaden LOVED watching the go karts zoom along in front of him ... but even more then the go karts he LOVED the bright lights from the cars. His expressions were awesome.
I love this little guy!!!

Fun with Nana

Daddy waiting for the parade to start ...

relaxing with Grandad

so much fun to watch!

munching on a closed twizzler LOL


Aaden has always been a picky sleeper. If he isn't in someones arms, our bed, or his crib he usually isn't sleeping. All of that seems to have changed .... haha ... lately the little cutie can fall asleep ANYWHERE!!!!!

This was his first highchair snooze.
I left his side for 3 seconds to go to the bedroom, and when I can back this is what I found.


I forgot about the wonder of pots and pans!
This morning I actually had 33 uninterrupted minutes to make my breakfast and eat it while Aaden played and banged.

It was awesome!

He is quite the drummer!


Daddy was mowing the lawn, and Mommy decided I wanted a shower.
I put Aaden in his piano, turned on Sesame Street and snuck to the bathroom.

It didn't take long before I heard the little guy fussing, but I ignored it knowing he was safe and sound in his piano and continued showering. Suddenly I realized I didn't hear him anymore and hurried to finish. When I got out I was SHOCKED to see ...

Yep, you guessed it.

What a whirlwind the last few weeks have been. We are a blessed family with so much to be thankful for. We are anxiously awaiting Baby #2 and all the adventures ahead. 


I have a few more catch-up posts to do in the next few days.
