The adventures of Aidric and Grace: Part 1

My sister-in-law, Sarah and niece, Grace arrived on Tuesday to spend NINE days with us here in TX! We have been having so much fun taking Aidric and Grace all over Austin to enjoy the fun kid stuff it has to offer. I love that they are old enough now to enjoy it! Our whirlwind tour so far has included, Gymboree, the spray park at the Farmer's Market, Kiddie Acres, story time at the library and water play on our deck.

For now, here are some pictures of storytime. Note Gracie sitting nicely on her mommy's lap and listening to the story.

Aidric prefers to go to the back of the room and clear off a chair, climb up and listen from there.

We went to Home Depot yesterday, and the main attraction for AJ was the group of tractors. He LOVES "tak-durs". We have a John Deere tractor book that he wants us to read OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I should find some of the pictures we took of him at my mom and dad's over the 4th of July too, when he went on Grandpa's tractor with daddy. That will be my project for nap time today...

Fall Part 2

It was too much for one post, so here's part 2....

Fall has never been cuter..

I don't think "cuter" is really a word, but seriously. The last four days we've had cool weather, especially in the morning, so Aidric has been wearing jeans, long sleeves and tennies. SO CUTE. He looks like such a little boy.

When it's too quiet in the other room....

it usually means Aidric has gotten a hold of something he knows he shouldn't have. In this case, he managed to get his hands on 3 of those things! He's holding my i-phone in his right hand, my i-pod in his left and is all set to start banging on the computer keyboard.

This is what happens when you take those items's tragic.

I've been a slacker!

So here are some random, not so great pictures!

He loves his new chair, never mind that the book is upside down.

His doll, in preparation for his baby sister!! He LOVES this baby and he's so sweet with her, until he's done with her that is- then he throws her across the room. He also likes to hand her to me, so I can rock her and kiss her. But, after watching me do it for a few seconds, he always scoots in really close to put his head up on my leg or my shoulder so I can rub his back and kiss him too. It's pretty sweet =)
