I know people have been waiting for a new post again, but I forgot all about it last night. Aiden is in bed already and Andy is playing Rock Band so I figured I might as well jump on the computer and write about our weekend.
We started out the weekend on Saturday leaving the house at 8 am to get to St. Louis by 9 to meet some family friends (Aiden's Great-Grandma Cook would go to breakfast pretty much every Saturday morning with the same crew). The crew was there (and we are sure Great-Grandma was too in spirit) and they were very excited to see us, especially Aiden. We had a nice breakfast and then headed to Alma to make the 10:30 Highland Festival Parade. It ended up being rainy and cooler than expected but luckily the rain stopped (for a little while) as the parade was starting. Aiden was a little confused by the sirens but wasn't scared. He just looked around in amazement at all the people. We got to see some family and friends, eat some good food and just have a good time all around.
As for the rest of the weekend, it was pretty boring. We just stayed around home, finished child proofing a few things and caught up on laundry. It was back to work today, but at least it's not Monday!
And here are the pictures I know everyone waits for. Aiden is definitely not sure about playing in the grass. It's so much fun watching him try to figure out what it is though. He touches it and then pulls his hand away, not sure if it's okay or not. I'm sure he'll get used to it in time.
Just for fun, here are a couple pictures of me holding Aiden. The first one is from August and the second one is from yesterday. How fast they grow up.
And here's our sweet little angel
And then the horns come out
He's really not wanting us to feed him anymore but this happens every time we let him try himself. He's been trying a lot of new foods lately. He loves cheese, yogurt and graham crackers. Yet he still gags when we try to give him some of the Gerber 3rd foods because they are chunky.
We think he may be teething again. The drool is back in full force. We went and got some new bibs that are supposed to not let the drool soak through to his clothes. We'll see how those work. Hopefully we won't have to go through 10 bibs a day.
Next weekend we have my cousin Kori's wedding in Rochester. More family and friends to see. Should be a good time. And here's one more pic of our happy little guy to close the post.
