Ahhh, Paradise

Well I must say, as sad as I am to be leaving my family in Missouri, I am sooooo excited to live in paradise (Florida)! We have set our official moving date for July 21st. I am not looking forward to the 20 hour long, uncomfortable drive in a big Penske truck, on a bench seat that doesn't recline, with an 11 month old to entertain and being 7 months pregnant. But, I am looking forward to an adventure with my little family. Let the good times begin :)

Growing so fast!


Well it's not the best picture but he just wasn't cooperating. Aidan has his 2 bottom teeth now and loves to use them. He's actually had them for about a month now. He loves to bite down on the spoon and shake his head so that all of the food falls off. Oh it's just so much fun!

Just last week I sat down with him and rolled the ball to him. It took about 10 minutes for him to figure out what I wanted him to do. Once he figured out how to roll the ball back to me he loved it and didn't want to stop. Yes, I know I look very pregnant in this picture. Guess what...I am.

A couple of days ago Aidan fell in love with the pat-a-cake song. He gets so excited when we sing it. When I finish the song he grabs my hands and claps them together until I start over again. This goes on for a very long time. Because of our recent move to Branson for a month I haven't been able to post everything that has been going on. There is much more to come but don't forget to watch the video of Aidan's voice right below this post :)

Aidan's Voice!!

Yes, it's true!!! Aidan now has a voice. We went in on Thursday June 5th and got a passy muir valve that goes over his trach which allows air in his trach but forces it out of his mouth past his vocal cords. It was such an exciting moment. I started crying the second they put it on because I could hear the air coming out of his mouth. It took him a minute to make sound because he didn't realize he could. I took this video when the speech therapist stepped out of the room. This captured the moment he discovered his voice.
