1 week and 3 days...

Until my baby is ONE! ONE whole year!!! We are having a very very large party on his actual birthday, Sunday March 7. Even Aunt Erika is flying from California and making cupcakes (3 double batches)! We are getting his 1 year professional pictures done this sunday, February 28.

I swear, it's like christmas all over again. We have a pile of stuff down in the basement that needs to be assembled and or wrapped. This is what we have to Aden from Mommy and Daddy. (Yes, once again I am wrapping Ryan's gifts)

Yeah, Notice how many of those toys require batteries.... ZERO. We learned our lesson from christmas.

Lent is here

And I am giving up...






Okay, well not just coke. All types of soda. But not really giving it up. I need at least one a day. But that is it! Just one! I'm also going to drink a lot more water.

A-Man's New 'Do

Well let's face it, Aden had a pretty horrible haircut for awhile. The first haircut was good! The second... well, it looked a little like a bowl cut... BUT props to his dad for attempting! It was too short to "fix" it so we had to wait it out. On February 23 I decided to take Aden to Cookie Cutters, a place just for kids... Aden LOVED it. Well, as much as a baby can love a haircut. They had tons and tons of DVD's to choose from so of course we picked The Backyardigans. I even had her gel his hair up in a faux hawk! He got a certificate and a balloon, which he absolutely loved. He looked so cool in his pink floyd shirt, faux hawk, and nikebook shoes!

Interesting Fact.

I'm looking into self defense classes for myself.

Either that or pepper spray.

Did you know that Mace will not affect those under the influence of drugs or alcohol but pepper spray will? Also, Pepper spray will make someone incapacitated for 15 minutes to an hour. I am choosing pepper spray. For Sure.

P.S.- Mace is just a brand of pepper spray.

I Hate When..


I Hate when people ask if Aden was "a mistake". My child has never been, and will never be, a mistake.

Aden Joseph Kiger is a miracle.

memoirs of a douche bag

I was remembering the people i've dated in the past and remembered how one of them once said:

"I date girls until I find something wrong with them. I feel like I deserve nothing but the best, so why settle?"

I hope that is working well for him.

My vent for the day

I wish for just one day I could see what being JUST a college kid is like.

Life is hard.

One more!


#9 Ice Cream Paint Job
- Aden is obviously really heavy so a lot of times I go "whoaaaa buddy" when picking him up, which just happens to be the beginning of this wonderful song. "Whoa Buddy, rollin' like a big shot, chevy tuned up like a nascar pit stop. YUP fresh outside, YUP, fresh inside...", you get the drift.

Inappropriate songs

I've noticed that I sing terribly inappropriate songs a lot of the time. I'm beginning to make a list:
#1- R.Kelly World's greatest
- it probably would be a great song to sing to Aden except for the fact that R.Kelly enjoys urinating on underage women. We can leave that detail out though, right?
#2- Lean Back by Fat Joe
- when Aden is having a bath, I obviously have to lean his head back to rinse the soap off. Instead of your traditional rubber ducky, why not make it a rap song? *I say my Aden can't dance he just pulls up his pants and does the rock-away. Now lean back, lean back, lean back, lean back* Works like a charm.
#3- I Love College by Asher Roth
- It has now been turned into "I love Mommy" and has cute verses about milk being tasty and waking up and doing it over again. I spent a couple days thinking that one up.
#4- That's not my name by the Ting Ting's
- "They call me Dooby, and sometimes goober, maybe Joseph and sometimes goob. That's not my name. That's not my name. That's not my name. That's not my name"
#5- Fire Burning- Sean Kingston
-"Somebody call 9-1-1, Aden's fire burnin' on the dance floor, whoaaaaa"
#6- Damn it feels good to be a Gangster
- Of course, I replace the word damn with dang. But there is really nothing cuter than a rapping baby.
#7- Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus
-Also a great bath time or diaper changing song. Aden's got the "put your hands up" part down, we are now working on the "nodding my head like yeah" and soon I hope to be working on the "moving your hips like yeah" part.
#8- Bedrock- Lil Wayne
- Okay, so it's not THE most appropriate song. I'm planning on just acting like he really is talking about Fred Flintstone living in Bedrock. Just go with it
Trust me, I will think of more. Just wait.

The lady with the painted toes



I'm back to feeling like myself... after almost 11 months. I have the urge to go out with friends, dress up, wear something other than sweats... I feel like myself, and I feel great. I did turbo jam for awhile, got my stomach to where I wanted it, and then stopped. I should probably start back up again. When I do turbo jam I have to eat twice as many calories, or I lose weight. You'd think i'd be happy about that but seeing as I am already at 97 pounds, I'd rather not. You wanna see? Yeah you do...
I am wanting to get my belly button pierced for my birthday ... but we'll just see.

I've also started...gasp...tanning! I am SORRY but in the winter, I NEED to. It really makes me feel ten times better. Damn seasonal depression. It's either skin cancer, or miserable winters for the rest of my life. decisions decisions.

I bet you are all wondering where I have been for an entire month! One word. Anatomy. I have NEVER taken a course this hard in my life. We work with human cadavers and have to identify muscles, veins, arteries, and bones. Do you know what the inside of a human looks like? Turkey. Dark meat turkey. There are no fancy colors to let you know that red= arteries, blue= veins. It's just turkey. My favorite lady has her toenails still painted. She was 66 when she passed away from pancreatic cancer. It's not as gross as you would think, just emotionally scarring. And the smell, oh man.. the smell burns your nose and lingers for the entire day. My labs are SUNDAYS 8am-11:50 am. 4 hours is a long time to smell dead bodies. We have practicals every other week and exams on the weeks we don't have practicals. It's a lot of work, hence the no time to blog.

Aden is doing great. Still army crawling, not standing, but very very verbal. He can wave, high five, do "so big" and almost stand on his head.. he's crazy. Aden is with me Monday, Tuesday,Wednesday, Thursday, some Fridays, and the second half of the day Sunday. We have so much fun together!

Well, Aden is awake now! I'll try to update later.
