Nursery Rhyme Choreography

WEEKEND! Wish it wasn't over. Then again, it's always nice to get back to the other part of my life.

Friday night Travis and I went to a double birthday party at his friends' grandparents' house. We met at Ariel's beforehand so Travis could shower without having to go home first, since the party was on the island. Aiden and I got there before Travis, so we spent a little time with Auntie Ariel.

Ariel tried to get the dart board to make noise for Aiden...

Aiden likes it when I "drop" and catch him. He laughed so hard every time I pulled him back up, but Ariel wasn't able to get it on camera.

Travis worked all day Saturday and half of Sunday. Aiden and I went up to the Ramby's after he woke up from his nap on Saturday. We swam in the pool and ate sliders for dinner. A couple of their other friends came over that we haven't seen (and haven't met) in a long time. It was nice to catch up!

Sunday, Travis was sick when he got home from work. He's still not feeling well today, but he still went into work. I think he is working himself sick - literally. Aiden and I went to the grocery store that morning and then played in the afternoon.

Aiden learns new things everyday that crack me up. I'm pretty sure he copies my lip syncing everyday on the ride home from daycare. His lips move to the music, but I'm not sure exactly why. He's not actually verbalizing anything. He also starting covering his mouth when he laughs sometimes. Turns out that's what his teacher does when she laughs. HA!

He also seems to have learned the "moves" to several nursery rhymes at school. We work with him on the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Patta Cake, but he learned Ring Around the Rosie without us. Travis was reading it out of a book the other night and Aiden started walking in a circle all by himself. Then he fell down at the appropriate time. Hilarious. I know they do the first two songs with him at school though because he does the moves a little differently from me sometimes. It's so strange to recognize that he is learning something from someone else.

Having a child is the best thing ever. It still amazes me that this kid came from Travis and I. We made THAT. =D Hope that wasn't too much cheese for one paragraph...
