We Finally Painted the Baby's Room!

Aiden was all about "helping." Thankfully, it wasn't rocket science, and we were done within an hour. And yes, that is Aiden, IN the playpin. But we still had to keep an eye on him, because he was throwing objects out, which, when the walls are wet with paint, is never a good thing! Check out how well the wall color matches the swatch of material that Sharon (Andy's mom) is sewing into a quilt. Yep, we are going with the Classic Winnie the Pooh theme again!

Here's Aiden, watching Little Einsteins while waiting for the house to warm up

Getting Ready to Go out to Lunch

What Lovelace Men (er, Boys) Do When Waiting for Lunch at a Restaurant

And yes, that is a FORK in Aiden's poor Mini Cooper

Car Play

And more pictures of Aiden playing cars at home

For Uncle Tay

Aiden's middle name is Taylor, after my one and only brother. They do share a hereditary disposition of whining, but apparently do not share the same fetish for keeping their faces clean of food particules. So here's for you, Tay!

Pregnancy Brain

Dear Bob and Lisa,
I am SO sorry for telling each of you (at separate occasions) this morning that I would meet you after church service to retrieve some cookware from your car and then never going to find you. I did not mean to blow you off, it just honestly slipped my mind. I could blame it on Andy and Aiden for being ready to head home for lunch, but I'll blame it on Baby A#$&*#!! (Some fam still don't know the baby's name, even though all our friends do!)

Your scatterbrained friend,

We were spending some family time on the couch this morning after Andy came home from work. Andy was quizzing Aiden on his body parts. There was a lull in the conversation, and Aiden leans over to me, pats my belly and says, "Mommy. BIG!!"

Snow Taste Test

I thought it would be a good idea to show Aiden that snow tastes ok. He not only thought it tasted ok - he started eating it like an afternoon snack! I know the video is super dark, but the audio is worth it!

Late Night Snow Fun

We headed out with Andy to clear the driveway, and it ended up being the perfect snow for snowballing and playing. We were out for almost an hour!
