Aiden playing peek-a-boo

We do this with him from around the shower curtain, books etc. It took me a few minutes to realize what he was doing.

driving me crazy!!!

So it's official...Aiden on the move is bad!!! He moves so fast and grabs at everything and has no fear. So we had to block him in the living room couch area. Due to the way our house is set up and the way the furniture sits we had to use furniture rather than baby gates. So there are tables blocking walkways. Hopefully it won't be this way forever- we plan to work on making the entire downstairs more baby proof and then maybe we will be able to put the tables back where they go!

The other part of this is I am so happy and sad at the same time that my little man is crawling so well and trying to walk.

So there is a video below this of the Bug crawling. He is getting so dang big. He will be 10 months on Thursday (8/6). He says hi and dad and mama.
Maureen played soccer this summer. She had fun- the last game was so HOT she didn't go. It was 106+ here and there was no way!! lol Both little kids are in swim lessons. Garrett has only had a week and now they are moving him up next session. He goes to Mexico with his mom at the end of the month so that is good.

We have been camping once this summer since everyone is home. We went to Ft. Worden state park. It is up where the Puget Sound meets the Straight. There are old bunkers to explore and the beach to play on...we did a ton of hiking. Some friends met us there and the kids all played. We plan to take a trip to Forks in the near future (Twilight stuff! lol) and will probably throw a tent up at a park on the ocean on the way back.

C is working a lot still to make up for me being a SAHM. I am sorry he has to but glad he can! He is taking a class here soon...always studying.
We have had friends here for the last 5 days. They left today :-(. BUT now I can get my butt back in the gym- 20 lbs to go!
guess thats it here. A few pics below of our summer fun!

Life here..

So other than the video of A it has been awhile and I thought I should Blog. The kids are all doing great.

Aiden is the BEST baby. So good in fact we asked the dr if he was okay! lol He is now almost 4 months old and is consistantly Sleeping through the night from about 9pm-5am. He gets up and eats and goes right back down until I get him up at 7:30am when we start our day.

Madeline is doing well in school. Still having some reading issues but we are working on that. And she is BRILLIANT when it comes to math so maybe that makes up for it? She starts swimming next week. Lessons. I hope it helps her with her confidence in the water.

Garrett is doing very well in school as well. No behavior issues at all! Listens to the teacher and learns very easily. He is wrestling right now and starts baseball on the spring.

Maureen is doing okay in school- mostly this is an age thing. She doesn't WANT to do she doesn't. She is working on it though (after losing a few big girl toys- cell phone!) She loves to hold Aiden and play with him and she is so good with him and really a HUGE help.

Cory and I are good. We have two trips planned together soon. One with the baby and one all alone- Cory's mom is coming to keep the kids- THANK YOU!!! Hopfully Aiden will be good for his Nanna. And Petra will keep the girls when we take the baby to Maryland with us. I want to see my Mommom and have her meet my husband and see my son. We will stay with Erin and Jeff and I am sure will have a blast!

This Stay at home mom thing is good for trips and good for Aiden but I am occasionally bored out of my mind!!! I love being with them but sometimes I am so happy on my one day at work!!

I will post some newer pics of the kids- Christmas maybe- soon.
