This and That

I know I said I wouldn't comment on the weather until spring but it's actually sunny out and 50 degrees today! Yesterday was gorgeous too which meant that Aiden and I could go for a walk around the neighborhood (shockingly, he actually walked the whole way. Goodbye stroller!). We also took a little time to blow bubbles.

Since the snow has been rapidly melting he also asked if we could make a snowman before it was all gone. We made the world's tiniest snowman.

Frame of reference for you:

Aiden has been full of energy lately which is pretty taxing. However, he's also been incredibly sweet. One day, after going to storytime at the library we decided to run over to Starbucks. I'll usually grab a coffee and head home when it's just me and him. That day we grabbed our beverages and headed to the door but he said 'No mommy! Sit down!".

He found a table and plunked down in a chair. I came over and said "Why are you sitting here? What are we supposed to do?" and he looked at me like I was crazy. He said "Talk to me mommy!". So we actually sat for a half hour or so and talked. He told me all about a dream he had with Thomas the Tank Engine, we talked about all the cars and buses outside and the photographs on the walls. I cannot believe I am the parent of someone who can sit and chat at a coffee shop. Where is my baby?

In other news, Sean and I went on a date. I even got to wear high heels. It was lovely. Photographic evidence:

I'm glad you have photographic evidence, I wouldn't have believed you otherwise. Plus I'm glad Aiden is taking after us in the sitting at S-bucks and chatting!

I'm glad Aiden is filling in for me until I come back. But can he turn into a baby again when I get home?
