Getting Big

Aidan is getting big. He's 2.5 months old now!

Little Stinker....

This morning Ryan and I were talking and playing with little Aidan in our bed, when we saw a flash of pink trot by our bedroom door. We called out, "Ashley???" and she came running in to our room and said, "I want to get down." She then quickly ran away again. Needless to say, SHE JUMPED OUT HER CRIB and was having a free for all in the basement. For those of you that don't know, we are STILL living in my parent's basement. Say a prayer that she stays in her crib... I can't handle anymore sleep disturbances.

Picasa Add Name Tag Feature

I was playing around w/ the online Picasa add name tag functionality and was amazed at how it works. Somehow it is able to pickup and group facial characteristics and organize them into people and its remarkably accurate. Unbelievable.

Cookies

Kelly just made cookies and while she was in another room, Ashley pulled a chair up to the counter, climbed up and had herself a feast. I can't really fault her because it was pretty smart!
