Our Trip to Holland, MI. With Daddie For Work

Paul had to go to Holland Michigan to do a Training Class, so Aedhan and I decided to tag a long for the ride. We got to enjoy a relaxing few days away from Chicago. Aedhan really enjoyed himself.

OH!!! Look at Me.
Aedhan enjoying the couch. After a patron at the hotel complained that Aedhan was to loud or that they thought we were having a party. What are we suppose to do with a child who is almost 2 years old in a different environment and enjoying himself? Aedhan playing on the couch with Waldo(The Bear).

Wearing My Rain Boots

Aedhan found his rain boots under his bed this summer, and he thought that it was time to wear them. His feet have grown so much that he never really got to wear them this fall when we did get rain. (Pictures taken 8-14-06)

Aedhan Being Potty Trained

We have started Potty Training Aedhan. He will tell us when he has to go to the Bathroom, and we also ask about every two hours. He has a Potty Time with Elmo Book which he looks at while he on the toilet. Aedhan flushing the toilet after he had finished going potty.(pictures taken 8-12-06)

Wearing Daddie's Hats

Aedhan has learned what the Spartan stands for, so he put his Dadddie's hat on and wear it around the house.

Our Night Owl

Aedhan had seen Monster's, Inc. on Ice on the television. He loved the Big Blue Monster(Sulley) on skates, so one night when he wouldn't sleep we put the movie on for him. He watched the entire movie and didn't get scared at all.(Pictures from 8-5-06)

The First Ultrasounds - Confirming "Cashew"

After taking a Pregnancy Test on July 21st, I made an appointment with my OB/GYN for August 2nd. I didn't have to take another pregnancy test or blood test. We did an Ultra Sound which showed I was 8 weeks & 1 day, which makes our due date March 14, 2007. Measuring "Cashew"
Listening to "Cashew's" Heartbeat
It was great to watch Aedhan's face as he heard his sister or brothers heartbeat. There was a sparkle in his eyes.

When we got pregnant the first time, we nicknamed the fetus "Peanut." This time we named the fetus "Cashew."

Aedhan's Bike Helmet

We bought this awhile back for Aedhan. We've been trying to get him to put it on, so when he starts to ride his tricycle, he'll be ready. He's already taken taken a bite out of the back, and his mommie clipped his chin once he had it on.

Wearing His Construction Helmet

We bought Aedhan little Tonka Learning Books. It's a set of 10 Books. In the Book labeled Safety, it says,"to stay safe, construction workers wear helmets." Everytime we read any of these books, he always has to put on his construction helmet.

Trial Run of Putting Up Our New Tent

Aedhan admiring the New Tent
On one of the hottest days of the year, we decided to try a trial run of setting up Our Tent for Four. Lisa and Aedhan sat in the cool water of the swimming pool, while Paul set-up the tent, cursing all the time.
Our New Family Tent is a Kelty Green River 4. It is HUGE! And the vestibule can hold our entire two person tent.

My visit to Montrose Beach

Aedhan is 21 Months old, and we've never taken him to Lake Michigan to just play in the sand and water. It's amazing how much he loves the water and sand. We tried to get him into swim lessons at the Local Park, but they were already full. We try to work on swimming in the bath tub.

He puts the sand in the bucket!

Here Aedhan relishes destroying someone's sand castle. He is sometimes a very destructive person.
