Two Months and a lot of progress

Wow. It was two months ago today that we got Aidan out of the orphanage! I can't believe that was two months ago! In some ways it was just yesterday and in other ways it seems like he has been with us forever! He has changed so much since then: he says Mommy and Daddy all the time now; says "Love you too!" ; He says Please Mommy, more, stop that, amen, bear, Cleo Kitty Cat, Doby (which is Mosby), Maggie, go bye-bye, night-night, book, play, Aidan (which actually comes out Aya), two (and he even tries to do two fingers, although his muscle coordination isn't quite there), and a host of so many other words! He still has some issues going to sleep, but once asleep no problem!

Pat told me the other night that he really loves coming home now (I tried not to be hurt by that!) He later clarified that he loves that Aidan screams out "DADDY!!!!" and runs to him for hugs. . .I do understand, but really! didn't he love coming home before???? : )

We went to the Daycare provider this morning to take the paper work she needed along with a case of Huggies and a case of Wipes. Aidan starts going there next Wednesday when I return to work. . . : ( I know it's best for him to be around other kids, but I am going to miss being around him all day everyday! On the positive side, I won't have to worry about private bathroom time during the day. . .

We went to D. C. the other day and got some good pictures in front of the White House and we also went to Arlington Cemetery and got some pictures in front of the Tomb of the unknown Soldiers during the changing of the guard as well as in front of JFK's tomb. I know it wsn't exciting for Aidan, but how cool is it that he is only two and has been to Capitols for two gret Nations???

Oh, and here is a picture that was sent to me in memory of the Devil Duck on Red Square:

Thanks, Lori! Thanks a lot! : )

By the way, does anyone know how to order the blog in book format? I saw that in someones blog recently but didn't write it down. I no longer remember which blog I saw it in! Help!

Oh I know the answer to that question. As soon as I find the link I will send it to you. I think it would be great to put it into a book.
