A Little Monday This and That. . .

Time sure is flying by. . .I'm happy because we'll have some warmer weather really soon--71 today, although back to the 40's tomorrow. . .but it really depresses me how quickly my little guy is growing up! 

I think this fact is always more apparant this time of year, as I prepare us for our Annual Post Placement visit and report.  Our Social Worker will be here on March 12th for our 3 year visit--3 years already?!?!?!?  And so, I have been going through pictures of Aidan over the past year.  In doing so, I came across a bunch of pictures I hadn't seen in a very long time of our first trip to the beach with Aidan.  We went to Virginia Beach for about 5 days right before I went back to work and he was absolutely in love with the ocean!  He was still so little and really just a baby then.



And now he's a little boy!!  Which is good, but look at the difference!!


I love my little boy, but I really miss my baby at times. . . .And no, the patches don't really work on the knees of his jeans. . .

I'll do a lot more then and now pcitures in a few weeks when we hit our Gotcha Day. . .you'll be amazed. . .

Meanwhile, my little boy is finishing up his swimming lessons this week.  I think we'll hold off on more lessons until fall.  I imagine he will progress a lot over the summer when we take him to our pool.  We try to do that several times a week and he is a little fish the entire time.

Hockey lessons continue.  He has one more lesson for Hockey 1 and then will have 7 lessons for Hockey 2 and then we take the summer off from that as well.  The ice rink does offer summer camps, but they are all during the day and since I work. . .

I'll be picking up the registration packet for Kindergarten in a couple of weeks.  Registration day is April 12th, but they let you have a month to gather information. . .if they only knew how skilled I am at gathering information quickly!!  : )

We made our resrvation last week at the Marriott at Disneyland.  We're going to be there for 5 days and paid for it entirely with the Marriott Rewards points we earned during our stay in Moscow!!  That uses the points up, though. . .I can't wait to see Aidan's reaction to Disneyland!! 

Grandpa's birthday is tomorrow, but we celebrated yesterday.  Fun times!!  We got him a digital picture frame and loaded it up with all kinds of pictures of Aidan from the past three years. . .  Talk about going down memory lane!!  But, that should keep him busy for a while!  : )  Happy Birthday Grandpa!!

That's it for now.  Have a great day!

I love the new picture in the header! What a cutie! Yes, time flies . . .. my "baby" is 16 and about a foot taller than me:)

Hope your spring comes soon . . . I think I'll have to wait a bit longer . . .

Oh my gosh!!! What a difference! Such a handsome boy! You are helping remind me to cherish every "babyish" day...even the unsuccessful potty training days, and start looking at pictures- we have our 3 month PPV in a few weeks! AH! :)

Stacy, I can not believe how much he has grown. He is so handsome. I wish I have stayed there when I was in Moscow.

Wish I would have read this lst weekend - I just patched 3 pairs of Daniel's jeans in the knees!! Was hoping they would hold up through the last few weeks of winter!!

Can't get over how fast these kiddos change!
