New Day, New Month

Another Monday morning. Another new month. Back to work and school. Aidan is doing really well these days with school and seems to be really enjoying it. And, it has now been a week and no sign of the Swine Flu! I think we're out of the woods on that one. . .

He does still miss his old sitter, though. I took Aidan to church yesterday and he cried when I tried to drop him off at the Nursery. Dawn wasn't there. So, rather than have him cry like that, I took him into church. Right after the Procession of the Cross, I looked up and there was Dawn coming up the side aisle. She got to our pew and motioned that she could take Aidan. I asked him if he wanted to go and he ran to her and jumped in her arms! I had a happy service and Aidan was now happy in the Nursery. Yippee for all of us! I would normally have gone to get him in time for Communion but decided to leave him this time. He was very happy when I went to pick him up so I think it was the right decision.

After church, I went to sign up as a Sunday School teacher-something I haven't done for a few years, but have previously done for six years. I signed up for Aidan's class! Lucky him. ; )

Two years ago this month, our dossier was sent to Russia. Two years! To me it seems just like yesterday in some ways. And in others, it seems like Aidan has always been with us. As of tomorrow, Aidan will have been with us 16 months. Amazing. Someone recently said that Aidan hadn't changed much in the past year. On the contrary! I think he has changed enormously! He is no longer a baby. . .and in fact, I think he is even out of the toddler stage already! Just look what happened in one year!

Sigh. . .I know they are supposed to grow up, but does it have to happen so quickly??

P. S. Plese join me in saying a Prayer of Thanksgiving for my Blogger friend Joy. After two years in the process, she went to Court on Thusday. She received her "Da" after 5 hours, yes 5 hours!!, of questioning which included a 15 minute conversation where she had to promise, not once but twice!!, that she would not let her daughter play with sharks!! You gotta love it. . .Thanks be to God, Joy!! And Congratulations on completing that stage. Now for motherhood! : )

Yes - Aidan has changed - Daniel too - they do grow up into little men so fast. So glad Aidan is still sympton free from the swine flu - scary! And glad he is enjoying school!

I would like him to stop growing up a bit too. I am just now getting caught up on all my blog reading. I had to go right back to work the day after I came home.

I can still picture in my head that picture of him in Red Square. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself.
