BIG DAY!

I just made 2 posts and forgot to mention the most important thing happening in our lives! Tomorrow at 10:15 Aidan has an appointment with the ENT to possibly get the trach out!!! He is 100% ready to get it out so we will find out tomorrow if he gets it out during his office visit or if we need to go back. We are sooooooo excited!!

What not to wear

Aidan cracks me up. Lately, I've been addicted to the best show ever, "What Not To Wear". Aidan seems to like it too, at least the beginning of it :) One day I heard him giggle and when I looked over at him he was watching the intro. of this show. He giggled each time the sparkles came on the screen. He's seen it so many times since then that he doesn't laugh any more but it still gets his attention and he really seems to like it.

What do you think?

So you saw my look-a-like picture of Aidan, well here is one of Maya. My mom said that Maya looks a lot like I did when I was her age. She said my hair even stuck up just like hers. In this picture I'm a little older than Maya is. I can tell by the tame hair :) So what do you think?

Happy Birthday Rich!!

31 years ago today the man of my dreams was born. I can't help but be grateful each year on his birthday for him and the joy that he has brought into my life. Rich has so many qualities that I love and admire. He is quick to forgive and very slow to anger. His patience has been tried these past 2 years that I've been pregnant and he has been ever so understanding and loving. He has been my strength during trying times. He can almost always make me laugh when I'm upset. He hugs me when I cry. He helps keep me on the straight and narrow. He gets my sense of humor. He is so fun and adventurous. He laughs with me.
He has all of these incredible qualities and so many more but the two things I love the most about Rich are that he loves our kids and he loves me.
I'm sad that I missed the first 27 years of his life but I am so happy to be able to share the rest of eternity with him. Happy 31st Birthday Rich! I love you!!

Aidan Standing

Aidan recently started standing for long periods of time. He is so cute! During the day he likes to show off to me by standing by the couch without holding on. He looks at me and giggles then he throws himself on the couch. He does this over and over and expects me to cheer each time.

His other recent accomplishment is waving bye, bye! Of course he is actually waving to himself. He'll figure out that he needs to turn his hand around soon. I love it though. The other day I was running out to the car to get something and he looked at me and said "Bye, bye!" and waved.

I also just wanted to give a quick trach and g-tube update. He is ready to get both of them out!! We have an appointment with the ENT on Thursday so we'll see if he takes it out then. We can't wait!!

My look-a-like

I was looking through some old pictures and found this picture of me where I look a lot like Aidan. Of course I'm quite a bit darker than him. The older he gets the more he looks like Rich but I think that it's still pretty obvious that he is my son.

Maya is 2 weeks old!

I can't believe it has already been 2 weeks! Now that I think about it, has it only been 2 weeks? Maya is a blessing and has been such a joy in our lives. She is such a good baby and just sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. My experience with her has been completely different from my experience with Aidan. My experience with Aidan...hard. My experience with Maya...easy! Juggling the 2 is a bit of a challenge, mostly because Aidan is and always has been so demanding of my time and attention. They are both so worth it.
As much as he whines when I am giving Maya attention instead of him, Aidan really does love her. He loves to give her kisses and touch her hair. He still doesn't understand that hitting isn't nice so I can't take my eyes off of him for one second when he is near Maya. I guess it's just one of the many challenges of having kids so close in age.
She is such a little angel. She only wakes up a couple of times a night and during the day she is the most perfect baby ever. We love her so much.
