Eating Yogurt!

I have a friend who is really against parents taking pictures of kids with food on their faces. So Tom, if you're reading this, don't watch these videos.

Aiden has the fork thing mastered, now we're working on the spoon.

And one more for good measure:

Lake George

The Lake formerly known as Lac Du St. Sacrement

Laura, my mom and I took Aiden to Lake George for a few days. He had a little cold while we were there, but it was still a lot of fun. We spent our time wandering around the village and we even took him on one of the steamboats and into Fort William Henry. By the time we left he'd learned a new word: boat. He repeated it over and over as we walked along the docks, pointing to every single boat he saw.

Silliness

Our house is full of silly lately.

Silly things like Aiden wearing Mr. Potato Head's glasses...


...around his neck.



He will wear the plastic yellow glasses like this for an hour, carefully reaching up to adjust them just so. I don't know why.


So sometimes you've got to be silly right back.


When Aiden won't sit still in the bath I like to do an operatic rendition of Queen of Memphis, and the combination of my horrible off-key voice and the fact that his mother is acting so strange usually gets him to sit still for a couple minutes.

A little bit of acting out does seem to help everything run more smoothly, because it keeps me from taking things too seriously and it keeps Aiden on his toes. (Until someone walks in and wonders what this escaped mental patient is doing with a toddler, that is).
