Look at Me!!!

I'm 18 months old today!!! My Mommy and Daddy can't believe it!!

Christmas Tree Farm

Each time as we drive home on the highway, we pass a Christmas tree farm. About a month ago, in the heat of the summer, I pointed this out to the kids.
Elijah asked, "Mommy, is it snowing there?"
I thought this was so sweet, because even though the temperature was 90 degrees outside, he figured it just had to be snowing at the Christmas tree farm!!
As we passed the tree farm yesterday, Elijah asked if Santa was there. I told him that Santa was home at the North Pole getting ready for Christmas!!

This picture of Elijah was taken this past June at Fritz's Restaurant at Crown Center, otherwise known as "The Choo-Choo Restaurant." The meals are served directly to the tables on trains...a little boy's dream!!!

What Has Aedan Been Doing?

I've updated everyone on Elijah and Callan, but I have noticed that Aedan hasn't been included lately!!
He will be 1 & 1/2 years old this Thursday, and we can't believe it!! He has been very, very busy exploring his world. We have noticed how carefully he pays attention to everything happening around him. He soaks in all details and then looks inquisitively at Mom, Dad, brother, or sister for an explanation.
He loves to get his shoes and play outside with Elijah and Callan. He especially loves balls and balloons. In fact, when we were shopping at Target yesterday, he saw a display of balls and went crazy until we handed him one. Of course, one second later, the ball was back on the ground!
And another detail about our little man...he LOVES to eat!! I mean, he eats like every meal is his last one!! The little guy can pack in the food!!
And that's the latest on Aedan...
*P/S...Thank you to Aunt Tunnie for this adorable picture of Aedan!!!!*
