My little helper

I have been painting baby girls room I, apparently, left a paint brush on the floor. Before I knew it Aiden had gone in and decided I needed a little help. Thanks buddy. I couldn't believe that he got it on three different walls but he didn't get any on the carpet, the crib or the bedding. Kind of amazing.


You are the best brother I can ever imagine. But you are so much more than my brother, you were my best friend. I love you with all my heart and miss you everyday.

Loved it!

Baby animal days was really fun and Aiden loved it! The highlight of the day was definitely the pony ride! He love love loved it! It was not really okay with him when it came to the end, all he kept saying was, "Do it Again!"

We got to pet tons of animals too, I wanted to get more pics but my batteries were almost dead. Sad I know. There were bunnies, cows, sheep, llamas, and more. The other hit of the day had to be the baby turtles and frogs! They had a ton of these little dishes full of them. They would put them in your hand, Aiden was in heaven. Especially with the frogs! He would put both his hands out and the lady put the frog in his hand and he would just giggle, then it would jump out of his hands and he would just squeal with delight. It was hilarious! I wished I got a picture but it was super crowded and I was on Aiden be soft patrol. Overall it was a blast I am definitely going to take him back again next year.

Baby Animal Days!

I am super excited! For those of you who don't know it is time for Baby Animal Days at American West Heritage Center. I have never actually been, but I have been wanting to take Aiden there for the last 2 years! The first year he was only a few months old so I didn't really push it, last year I didn't realize it was even time for it until it had already come and gone and I was bummed. But this year I am ready and I am pumped! It starts today and ends Sat. It's goes from 10-6 and kids under 3 are free so any of you all out there who have little ones I would totally suggest it. I'll blog later and let everyone know how it was. I hope I'm not disappointed, but I'm sure I won't be.

MOMMY Tagged

I have never been tagged before hopefullly I do it right, here goes:
1. Typically what time do you wake up? Anytime between 8 and 9, that doesn't mean I get out of bed though I usually lay around until Aiden says he's hungry, is that bad?
2. On a good night what time are your kids in bed? Between 9 and 10
3. How long have you been a mommy? Just over 2 and a half years, wow that's crazy!
4. How old were you when you became a mommy? Umm...21 I think
5. What is your favorite kid TV show/movie? I kinda love Disney Movies in general, but I really like to watch Toy story (1 and 2) with Aiden.
6. What is your least favorite kid TV show? I hate that yo gabba gabba show on the Disney channel.

8. What is your favorite meal to cook? I like to make penne alfredo with peas or broccoli it's yummy and Aiden eats it really well.

10. What is your kid’s favorite meal? Mac and cheese. Like father like son.
11. What is your favorite thing your husband does with your kids? I love it when they just play, no one can make aiden laugh as loud and hard as Nick it's hilarious.
12. What are 5 things that make you smile when you're being a mom? When I call to Aiden and he answers, "Yeah mommy?", when he gives me a hug or kiss without me asking. when I put him to bed and tell him I love him and he replies, "I love you too mom," when he runs into my room in the morning to wake me up and tell me hi, and when he asks if we can hold hands.
13. If you could take your kids anywhere where would it be? I would love to take Aiden to Disneyland if I could skip the trip there and back. I think he would be in heaven there but I will just have to wait until he's older.
