Sporting mommy's shirt at 8 months old
14 lbs and 8 months later Aiden has gotten so big. I wanted to just brag a little and tell you some of the accomplishments Aiden has made in 8 months:
~He goes to sleep all by himself in his bed at 8pm and sleeps until 7am.
~He can pull up if he wants to.
~He can say Bye Bye, MaMa, DaDa, and wave Bye Bye.
~He is a pro eater and perfect holding the sippy cup and bottle.
~He knows how to hide things and keep for later use (example a cracker in his hand until bed or hiding his paci under his blanket for bed. Yes it's very funny!
~He knows my voice, Brandons, and my moms very well. He gets so excited in the mornings to come downstairs and see Daddy Jim with his paper. He also knows exactly who Ella (his cousin, that's in his day care class) is.
~Finally he crawls everywhere he wants to go and fast too especially when he sees ice cream- as the pictures show. NO he doesn't get it much at all.

It's about time we find a home.....WE ARE HOMEOWNERS. Well not quite yet the home is being built and the finish date should be around mid to end Oct. We were very excited to find a home being built that we could actually come in and pick our colors, counters, floors, cabinets, lighting, and all the other features in a home. We are very very excited and so thankful our prayers have been answered.
Finally It's about time I post new pics... I will get them up soon!
Many of you have asked- My brother is doing good!!! THANK YOU so much for your prayers so many people have asked about him and told me they are praying for him. I am so thankful for wonderful friendships!

This weekend really showed how much of a Mommy's Boy he has become lately, he had nooo desire to let anyone hold, talk, play, help, feed, change, or anything whatsoever for him but his Mom Ma. Needless to say my "me" time is not happening as long as Aiden is around. However he is trying so hard to pull up and still no interest in crawling he just wants to scoot everywhere. He can get where he wants very quickly and it works just well for him so he doesn't even attempt to move his hands. He has accomplished saying "Bye-Bye" and is now a pro at MaMa and DaDa.
Friday night we went to Hornsby to see Brandon's family and join Ally's "all girl" birthday party. Melanie and Kim (Brandon's sisters) were the chaperones to Ally's sleep over of 9 six year olds- Hannah Montana galore. Even Brandon knows the words to the Hannah Montana songs :). We enjoyed the party and spending time with Brandon's family that we rarely get to see know that we live in Jackson.
FYI: If you have been looking for an inexpensive, great tasting restaurant that offers huge portions you should try the new Old Hickory Steakhouse. FANTASTIC everything we ordered was wonderful, no complaints with anyone and thats very rare. At the end of supper even Brandon had food left on his plate. You should really try it out.
Finally please keep remembering my brother in your prayers we still have no answers behind his illness. More test have been run and he finds out the results in the morning. ALSO we have found a home we are putting an offer in tomorrow, we are keeping our fingers crossed that accept our offer.

On another note I have a HUGE prayer request....my brother, Brian, who is never ever sick (hasn't even been to the doctor in 5-6 years) has recently gotten pretty sick. After it continued on for awhile finally he had some blood test taken...not good results. PLEASE PLEASE pray for him as he waits to here what exactly the test show, the doctors have told my brother what they think but nothing definite.
Finally today is my niece's 6th birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALLY- Brandon, Aiden, I miss you and can't wait to see you Friday. (Aunt Mel or Nanna can you read that to her please :) )
What a spiffy looking guy...future heartbreaker for sure!
