Thought I'd take a moment to share a couple Davidisms and Aidanisms as of late.
This afternoon while I was preparing the potatoes au gratin David looked at me and said, "Mommy, I want to be a cook when I grow up so I can cook in the kitchen with you."
On a daily basis he kisses the tip of my nose and tells me, "Mommy, you're so cute. I just love you." Usually this happens while I'm giving him cuddles before bedtime, but he has also started doing this randomly at other times of the day. I'm not complaining though...it totally melts my heart.
This evening Rob tried to have Aidan say, "Go Ducks!" Aidan replied: "Quack, quack!" Then Rob tried to have him say, "Go Hokies!" to which Aidan said Hokies, then quickly changed the word to cookies (his favorite food of the day besides ham).
Aidan is very particular about his clothes and his shoes (notice his blue tennis shoes in the above photo--those are "Blue" and he insists of wearing those every day--try to put another pair on him. As soon as he sees "Blue" he grabs them and asks over and over to have you put them on him). Almost every day this past week he has picked up one of his polo shirts out of his pile--primarily his light blue one with stripes and carries it around. He even tried to take off the outfit that he had worn to church this morning to put on his preferred shirt.
Today is day 2 for Aidan being weaned. He looked at me today half perplexed and said, "No Num-nah" then smiled. Thankfully he hasn't shunned me like David did when I weaned him. That child wouldn't cuddle with me for almost an entire month afterwards (he cuddles with me lots now though...must not have traumatized him too much). :) Weaning him has been a bit of an emotional experience for me though. More so than I had originally anticipated. Fortunately, this time the process has gone by much more smoothly. I'm hoping that it continues to be this way.
