I would just like to give a little shout out to Dad-Oh–City League Basketball Champions! Whoo-Hoo! All that victorious rebounding, intense defense and floor burns didn’t even earn him a tee shirt! Cheap skates! The team will more than likely be in the paper tomorrow night. So stay tuned! 😛 Congrats, Honey! Of course you’re always a winner in my book! 😉

First lets talk about Aidan’s attempt to wake up for the day at 4:30 am! Yep, no typo I meant to type all three of those god awful early numbers! The little stinker started chirping like a little bird just before 4:30. I went in to his room and tried to lay him back down and he popped back up like a little rocket. So, I got him out of the crib, changed his pamper, and rocked him for awhile in the rocking chair. He was WIDE awake entire time. I must have dosed off about ten times because it seemed like every few minutes my body would tremble itself awake again. After about 20 minutes I put the baby bird back in his crib and again he popped back up. I left him alone to chirp it out until he began to fuss. Ten or so minutes later he started crying, so I got up one final time fetched him his binkie, laid him down and went back to bed. That was the last I heard from him until……drum roll please…..wait for it….wait……are ya ready?

8:10 am! I woke up a few times around 7, wondering if I should check on him because this was soooo far out of the ordinary that he had to have stopped breathing or escaped and went downstairs to watch hours and hours of uninterrupted Backyardigans. Either way at this point I was in such a state of euphoria that I didn’t care! 😛

So we are hoping to implement this into the “this is when normal people wake up” routine! Pray for us!

Tonight Aidan and I went to Ella’s house for a play date. She is so stinkin’ cute! Of course he was only interested in teaching her his bad habits.

Like crawling under her crib, a skill he learned from his Dad-Oh!

See Ya

What are you Doing?!

They had a blast chasing each other in and out of a cardboard box. Goes to show fancy light up toys aren’t always the biggest hit! I love how both of their pampers and peeking out their back sides! 😛

    that ball game was one of the best i have seen for awhile. the boys mastered the art of winning against an equal opponent. dad-o played like a veteran with head and heart. after the game the cute little friske boy put on a show rolling the basket ball from end to end chasing it. man that kid is really quick , where was his future teammate?

    Tater, too, spent most of yesterday in a cardboard box. And I honestly think Dick would have gotten in there with him had it been big enough. Long live cardboard boxes!

    I had a similar morning with Deeder, not 4:30 though, boy that’s early! It was 6:30. And instead of rocking (there isn’t a chair in his room) I took him downstairs and gave him a bowl of cereal. After he ate that I gave him a glass of grape juice and put him back in bed. 8:15 and he was still sleeping…It wasn’t until I had the coffee going and had eaten my breakfast that I heard him calling! 🙂
    Official it’s-time-to-wake-up time around here is 7:30. That has him tired by 3pm, and ready for a 7:30pm bedtime.
    Super cute play date pictures!!
