Well, lets face it. I suck at updating my blog. Once a week isn't TOO bad though! What's new with my life? Here we go......
Ryan went on a week vacation with his friend Ryan. Ryan and Ryan are BFF's...how cute is that. I was at home alone which wouldn't have been so bad if Aden had not had to get 4 month vaccines at 7:30 on a Monday morning. Tell me please, what doctor schedules a screaming baby appointment at 7:30 on a MONDAY morning. To make matters worse, I heard something going on down in the diapey area and, of course, I had walked out of my house without the diaper bag. Great move on my part. After I went through the embarrassment of telling the nurse that I needed a diaper, I go to change it and NOTHING was in it. Awesome. Our REAL doctor assured us that we are NOT overfeeding him and even gave us free formula. What could be better than that?
When Ryan came home on Saturday he gave me 2 nighties and a pair of pj pants to wear to bed! I guess he is sick of me wearing my Big dog shorts from 6th grade and a Mcdonald's Big Mac shirt from the '80's. Hey, it's the burger with the grown up taste. The PJ pants were HUGE... I think they would have fit when I was 8 1/2 months pregnant... and if I was wearing them over my belly. So Ryan returned them and got me another nighty and my favorite flower! What a guy.
Aden has discovered the wonderful world of chewing on everything and anything. He falls asleep holding the blanket with both hands right by his face and his thumb in his mouth. If he doesn't have a blanket, he just uses his shirt... no big deal.
He also bounces in the tub. As in, pushes his feet against the end and bends his knees and pushes off. I remind him many times that bath time is cleaning time, it is not a jumperoo. Aden also got a brand new highchair! Feeding him oatmeal and prunes was a little difficult with him sitting on my lap! He has the chicco 360 hook-on chair. It's amazing! He even sat with the family for dinner this evening!
Tomorrow we are going on an adventure! Ryan, Aden and I are driving 9 hours (give or take) to the Georgia Cabin! There will be 18 people. I bet you are thinking large, luxurious house with plenty of room to spare. In reality, this is a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cabin with no tv or dishwasher. Problem? Not for the Cook's! They've done it before and will do it again. and again. and again. We leave Saturday at 11 a.m and will return Friday, hopefully. What do you pack for a 4 1/2 month old? Everything. Any cute onesie that you think they might possibly wear you ust bring. Even if its a size too big, hell they might grow into in 6 days! You must go through all the possible problems. What if they washer and dryer break? what if he decides to have a poop disaster and must use 15 onesies in a day AND the washer is broken? It could happen. Definitely.
Ryan decided it was too much to drive my Jetta for 9 hours so the poor guy rented us an SUV. I think now he will be able to survive the 123 Kids songs that I bought the other day. That's right. 3 cd's, almost 40 songs on each. $9.99. Gotta love Target. This CD has everything on it... Barnyard Boogie AND Old Mcdonald- same song, different drums in the background. It even has a rap version of No More Monkey's Jumping on the bed. And of course, my personal favorite, Greensleeves.
We are comin Georgia Cabin!!!
**We are planning on coming back Friday but we do not know for sure. Ryan's Great Grandfather(Aden's Great Great Grandpa) passed away today at the ripe old age of 96. We will plan our trip accordingly.
