Potty Training

Since Aiden loves to have his diaper off and is always interested in putting stuff into the toilet (most recently, a FULL roll of toilet paper) We decided it may be time to adventure into potty training. Wow, I don't know what I'm getting myself into but I do know that I'm not looking forward to paying for two kiddos in diapers so I hope this works He was pretty interested in it last night and did not want to get up! He would get up and carry the potty to another room... he has his own porta-potty and loves it! Mike handed him a magazine and told him that the first rule of potty training 101 was to have a good read before ya get started! He sat there about 5 minutes looking through my photography magazine (yah, I'm brainwashing the kiddo early) Today he actually potty'd in it.. well, sorta. He tried but uh, missed. So it made a bigger mess for me to clean up, but hey, at least we didn't waste a diaper!!
I can't believe my little man is growing up - it's going way too fast.

This is a kiddo after his mommy's heart. Afterall, he is reading a photography magazine!

It's a GIRL

It's true, there's going to be a new baby in our family and it's a GIRL. Mike and I are thrilled at the idea of a princess running around. Bless her heart, I've learned so much about photography since Aiden was born, so she doesn't have a prayer when it comes to the mamarazzi! And they say that you won't get as many pictures of your second child as you did your first! Not this mama! Thank you for all of your prayers and support - so far, so good with this pregnancy. We're happy to be healthy and all is well.

And yes, she does have a name, but since we knew we couldn't keep HER a secret, we've decided to not share the name; there has to be some surprise with all of this!

Aiden's 1st Snow

How fun is it that we actually had a white Christmas?? Well, technically it was a slushy, dirty Christmas day but we had snow before and after, so it's close enough to count! Little man wasn't overly impressed with snow during his 1st outing, but he eventually decided that it wasn't so bad. He liked it so much, it was hard to get him to come back in. I was out there with frozen fingers and could barely press my shutter button, but Aiden was having a blast!

Aiden's 1st Hair Cut

Mike finally talked me into getting Aiden's hair cut. As much as I loved his baby curls, I was tired of people calling him a girl, so I gave in and off to Super Cuts we went! Aiden was a dream child during his 1st cut! He sat there completely still and I think he could have fallen asleep! Just like his daddy, he loves to have his hair played with!

Before Look....

The big cut....
