We had a nice Labor Day weekend down in Nashville, IN with Kreg's family and family friends. We didn't do a whole lot. We went hiking a few times but mostly just layed around and chatted. It felt very strange to be lazy because there is absolutely nothing lazy about motherhood. As soon as I get Aiden down for a nap its off to the races to see how much I can get done before he wakes up. However down there I would put Aiden to bed and then sit...which was a very strange feeling.
There were 3 babies this weekend. They were all between the ages of 6 months and 13 months. As you can imagine all on very different schedules but they all did well. Aiden slept in our room with us and there was only one night that he decided to wake up at 4 am and throw himself a little party. He talked to himself and scratched the sides of his pack n play and talked some more. I think he was awake about 45 minutes. Never fussed...just had a little party. Mommy was invited but daddy never heard him (go figure) so I guess daddy wasn't invited to this party.
Aiden got to swim with his cousin Jack once again. But this pool was very different than Grandma Hansen's pool and colder too! Jack loves to splash but as you can see in the pics Aiden of course took it like a man.
Kreg enjoyed trying out our hiking pack and Aiden enjoyed riding in it. I kept trying to straighten Aiden's hat while we were hiking but every time I did Aiden would turn it back sideways......I guess he wanted to be like daddy....so we let him.
The big news since being home from our trip is that Aiden is now eating Cheerios!! woooohoooo. He loved those gerber puffs but I have been buying them like they are going out of style because he eats so many. But I think the budget is going to be happier with Cheerios.
