Sometimes, Aden and I have jam sessions in the car.
He really likes dancing (I'm his mom- of course this kid is going to like to dance) and in the car he is restricted to head banging and fist pumping. Since he can't do anything else, he goes extra hard and it is absolutely hysterical. Now it's getting even better because he can kind of sing along. We had a sweet duet to "I'll Never Break Your Heart". He couldn't quite get the words but when I sang "I'll never maaaaake yooooouuuu cry" he would fake cry. Also, I don't know if I'm embarrassed about this or proud (maybe both) but Aden can sing Friday. You know, that awful Rebecca Black song? Aden comes up to me today and says "mommy. Friday. Friday". I honestly had no idea what he was talking about so he continued on, " fun fun fun fun ". By this time I got what he was trying to say and did the "PARTYING PARTYING!" and he would reply "YEAH!"... Ryan seriously wants to hurt me. I find it hilarious.
My kid will be going to school singing backstreet boys and fist pumping. At this rate, he may even be able to walk it out and move it like bernie. He is either going to turn out to be the coolest person ever or the biggest tool bag.
We're still working on the hitting. I swear, the second I say no he starts swinging his arms in circles trying to hit anything around him. It's like a walking windmill of destruction.
He also enjoys making fake sandwiches and putting them in random places. I found one in his potty (which at the moment is nicely positioned in front of the tv in my room. Classy.) I found another in my drawer. And another one on Ted. Ted was not impressed:
He has taken an interest in playing with my hair. I don't know if he is just jeal that I have long hair and he doesn't, or if he just likes hair. Either way, daily head massages are happening and I am not complaining. (told you he was a metrosexual)
School is fine. I'm really really sick of not seeing Aden as much as I'm used to (holla to ryan for taking him while im at class mon, half of tues, and weds. Steppin up his game!) but it makes the time we do hang out way better. It's really cute when every time he leaves a room for 30 seconds he comes back and says "HI MOMMY!!" Sometimes he calls me pretty too. And everyone likes to be called pretty.
The other day I was putting him down for a nap- Aden is the nap champ of the world, making him 5,000 times cooler- and I said "Aden, do you love your mommy and daddy?" and he replied "Yaaaaaah! Mommy!!! Daddy!!!"
His new fave thing to do is go outside, grab a clump of dirt, bring it inside, stomp on it, spreading the dirt everywhere, and sweeping it up. And then cry if he doesn't clean it up well enough. He also enjoys knocking over the statues of various saints we have located in our backyard. Today was the Virgin Mary. I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure that is sacrilegious... especially this close to Easter.
**If you have noticed, a lot of the pics I have been taking are me holding Aden in the exact same spot. I'm trying to take one of us once or twice a week. It's fun to see him change!!
