He got out on the sand and bolted for the water. It was a bit chilly, but he just splashed around like a fish. We were down there for a long time, splashing and rolling around in the sand. I don't think I've ever seen our little man so happy!

The other day, during a walk, he cried when Luke put a leaf in his hand. He also cried when he got close to a tree. He cries when he hears the dryer buzzer go off.
The other night, he and I were sitting in my bedroom and I had the window open. We were talking and all of a sudden he got really quiet, as if he was trying to hear something. All I could hear were the crickets chirping outside, which is what he heard too, I'm guessing. Well...let me just tell you, he looked at me, looked towards the window, looked back at me and then began to cry. OVER CRICKETS CHIRPING OUTSIDE. Haha..doesn't it make you laugh...it makes me laugh, but it's sort of frustrating too.
Today, we took him to HarvFest to see the animals. We had a great time, but walking around...NOT SEEING THE ANIMALS. He cried when he saw the alpacas, he cried when we got close to the donkey. He DID like the ducks but NOT the bull. He defnitely didn't like the camel but we did manage to get him to feed the camel some grapes (still crying though).
I love our little weanie!

I love our little guy so much it hurts so I should laugh at him when he's sad, but sometimes I just can't help it!

We have been working VERY hard at the spoon. Each morning I give him his bowl of oatmeal or cereal (milk included) and after a lot of hard work, by gosh, he's finally got it!!!!

All the other moms out there can attest to my inital reaction of DREAD as I ran to the front door, leaving the roses behind laying on the ground. As I reached the door I could see Aiden standing on our front porch looking up at me with this look of triumph on his face, given the fact that he had returned outside once again! From Aiden, I glanced up across the street and there went MacKenzie...sprinting as fast as he could in the opposite direction. All I could say was "OH CRAP".
I dashed across the street, dropped Aiden off with my neighbor (thank goodness they were home) and darted down the street after my pain in the rear dog. TEN MINUTES LATER....we returned home.
Needless to say, we have babyproofed the front door along with every other door in our home now. I guess it's better that I find out now that Aiden can open the dead bolt than later, right??

UGGGGGH! All over him, the table, the dog, the floor, the chairs, IN HIS EYELASHES. I'm thankful he didn't get any in his eyes.
Just another fun day in the life of the Callas family!

First it was Yo Gabba Gabba. He wanted to watch it every morning when he woke up which I thought wasn't too bad, so I let him. It progressed from there. Every minute of the day when he realizes that he's bored, he brings me the remote chanting "babba babba....babba babba".
Over the last week he has changed his television preference from Gabba to Yogi Bear. Back before we went to Jellystone I recorded an episode for Aiden to watch so he would know who Yogi was. One day last week we put Yogi on instead of Gabba and now all we hear is "gogi.......gogi" with remote in hand.
I have decided to put my foot down. Aiden is now back in daycare two days a week (which I'm sure isn't helping me AT ALL) but Robyn has him two days a week and she is on board with us . NO MORE TELEVISION. One show per day. I'm dedicated to making Aiden stay active doing things that will help his brain, NOT ROT IT!!
Wish me luck!
