22 months

Yesterday marked Aiden's 22 month birthday. He's growing so much. We are working on his animals and colors. We are also working on complete sentences for instance: "Where it go?" should be "Where did it go"
I can't even begin to go into detail about what all he is doing now but he does everything most 1 year olds can do plus more.
Just a few funny facts about Aiden:
- His favorite word is NO
- He has never NEVER cleaned his plate, in fact he would go days without eating if I didn't force him to eat.
- Don't worry he gets his vitamins in- he drinks about 20 glasses of chocolate milk a day
- In his mind- a cow says meow
- In his mind- A dog doesn't say "whoof whoof" all it does is pant
- He refers to me as Renee when he needs something
- He refers to Gram as Deborah at day care
- If Aiden has meet you one time he will never forget your name
- "Who's that mommy", "whats that mommy", "where it go", "come on"are his constant phrases all day
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving season.

Photography



Have you ever wished you could learn to do something so bad and no matter how hard you tried it's just not for you? Well, one of those wishes for me is photography. Maybe I don't have the right camera or maybe it's just not my gift but for some people it is. I pledged Chi Omega with a friend, Elizabeth Wiggs, that photography is definitely her gift. Even though Aiden was not in the mood for pictures she snapped so many cute pics. I had to lower the resolution of the pics above so they are blurry. We took these pictures at my grandmom's house and the beautiful lady you see in these pics is her. I'm SOOO mad at myself for not getting any of just Aiden but atleast we have our first ever family pictures! If you are looking for a very talented photographer check out some of her other work here.

Pepaw


Thank you for all the prayers for us and our family over the past few days.

On Sunday Brandon's grandfather (who he is VERY close to) passed away from a massive heartattack. These past few days have been very hard for the entire family. Aiden has had a hard time trying to figure out where pepaw has been the past couple of days and he was so precious telling pepaw bye bye while he laid in the casket, unfortunately Aiden has no idea he will not see pepaw again (in this life). We will surely miss him! Please pray for all his family especially during the holidays!
