The Zoo

Our house is nestled in a neighborhood with a solid amount of trees. Due to that, we get all sorts of furry and feathered friends that visit for a quick bite to eat on our bird feeder. Here is a pic from this morning (kind of hard to see though). You can see a 2 squirrels, 1 rabbit and 1 blue jay. Unfortunately, a cardinal flew away just before I could catch him.

Mansky Update

My little man has a tooth!!! His bottom right tooth came in about three days ago. The left tooth is coming VERY soon. It is so funny because Aidan is the quietest baby in the world!!! The other day he fussed for about 10 seconds here and there. I knew something was the matter and you guessed it... A TOOTH!!

He is now rolling everywhere. He loves to twist around and look at what is behind him. He twists so much on the changing table that I am almost considering changing his diapers on the floor. He LOVES staring at his hands and he has almost figured out that his feet belong to him as well. He is getting so big!!! I can't stand it!! He is my little "mansky."

Some Funny Stuff And a Big Thank You To Daddy!!!

We did it!!! Aidan is sleeping 7:00 - 6:00. And it is all thanks to DADDY!!! We got a great plan from a sleep clinic and it worked in three nights. And not that much crying. It involved Daddy duty pretty much from 2 hours before Aidan goes to bed and then all night long. Thank you daddy for your patience and understanding. You followed through with everything. You are OUR savior. We love you so much.

Also some funny Ashley moments:
Last night in the car I said....

:What is that smell? It is probably my garlic breath.

: No, mommy!! It is MY breath that smells. MY BREATH MOMMY. (she was not saying it a mean voice)

: No, really Ashley it is the garlic hummus I ate.

Ashley: No Mommy it is MY breath. I SMELL MOMMY. I SMELL MOMMY.

I finally gave in and let her win. She was persistant on smelling!!

( at the age of two everything has to be MINE!!!)

Jealous or Not... That is the Question??

Poor little Ashley. She is my beautiful little angel. But her little brother has been getting all the glory lately. She is handling it quite well... until....the other day. We were walking in to Starbucks and the person holding the door for us bent down in the stroller and said, "what beautiful eyes your baby has" then the lady at the counter said it too. She then got the barrista to come over and look at his "baby blues." On our way out, two ladies stopped and said "wow, what beautiful eyes your baby has." This happens pretty often. But this particular day it felt like everyone was stopping to say something. In fact, it happens so often that when Ashley talks to her baby she says, "you have beautiful eyes." Anyway, back to the story. We left Starbucks and walked over to the grocery store and on the way in WE HEARD IT AGAIN! My heart was melting for Ashley. Not one person acknowledged her. So while we were standing at the deli counter Ashley looked up at me and said, "mommy Ashy has beautiful eyes." As we are pulling away from the deli and about to check out. I was so afraid to hear it again. But instead we heard something else. "MAAM YOUR DAUGHTER STUFFED HER SOCKS IN YOUR SONS MOUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Hahaahahah... not to laugh because poor Aidan was sitting there stunned. Was that jealousy or just boredom?????

Getting smarter every minute

This morning Ashley came in the room and said, "where's daddy?" I said that he is at work and she said, "no mommy he is in CAGO." Yes, she is right that daddy is in Chicago. Then why did she even ask me?????? She then came up on the bed with me and laid down on daddy's pillow. I was snuggling with her and she said, "no mommy, head off of daddy's pillow... MINES... MY DADDY!!!

Future Barista!!

Yeseterday Ashley, Aidan and I were taking a walk. We ended up at the swimming pool across the street. Ashley was looking at the empty pool and kept saying that she wanted to get a swimsoup(my favorite word of hers) for the summer. Then she spots the bike racks and goes over to them. She steps behind one of them and says, "mommy, I am Starbuck do you want a SOY-TEY or CAF-MOHA. I said, "sure!!" She then looked at me and said, "swipe your card mommy." And so we played the same game over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Even Aidan fell asleep in the bjorn as we went back and forth swiping the fake card and blowing on the hots drinks. SO FUN!!!

Ashley's 2nd Birthday

Our little girl turned 2 this past week. Unbelievable how fast 2 years has gone. We went up to New York two weekends ago to spend some time with my family. This past weekend we had a party at our house. Here are some pictures from both weekends.
