After a long 5 day weekend of fun, food and family, today we are back to work/daycare. It's been really nice to be at home and have Aidan running around playing with all of his new toys. Here are a couple of his favorites (I couldn't get him to be still long enough to get a picture of him playing with his tractor!)
He loves his new Smart Cycle that Grandma and Grandpa got him. He has fun playing with this as long as either Mama or Daddy help him pedal. . .his legs are about 1 inch too short! We're hunting up blocks to put on there until he gets a little taller. . .which probably won't be too long, knowing Aidan! The Smart Cycle is really neat. . .it teaches colors, numbers, shapes, and a whole bunch of other things. It's designed for 3 to 6 year olds and then you can get cartridges for other things like adding, subtracting, division, etc. for when they get a little older. We saw one that is Nascar themed and even teaches simple fractions! That one is for 4 and up so we'll have to wait on that. Maybe after he starts pre-School next year.
He loves anything having to do with cars. But, this track is really cool. You can make it into any configuration you want. The track itself is sort of like legos, and it's very flexible. The cars are battery operated and drive around the track. The object, of course, is to see if you can get them to crash!
And so, it's back to work. I almost hesitate taking Aidan back to Day Care. He's been doing so much better these last few days. . .he is day six on our fourth kind of Anitbiotic in the past month--this time for Double Ear Infections, and he has been sleeping soooo good! I really hope everyone else at Day Care has done as well and won't be bringing anything new to catch! At least it is a short week. . . But, I'm going to miss my little Dudely!
