1st Day at the Beach

We headed out to Cocoa Beach for some fun in the sun on a very hot 92 degree day. We got a late start because we had breakfast at a friends house and then had Katie, Kerlan and Aidan visiting. We finally made it out there by 2:00. We made a quick stop at RonJon's to get Aaron a new big boy hat (he outgrew his baby hat). Aaron did not like his new hat or his sunglasses and kept pulling them off his head all day. Michael spent most of the afternoon catching up on long needed sleep. Serena attempted to make sand castles, but the sand was too dry. She went back and forth getting water, but never was able to build a sand castle. She didn't seem to mind too much and decided she would just dig and fling sand all over everyone instead. Little Aaron thoroughly enjoyed himself. He mostly people watched. We went into the ocean and he liked getting his feet wet. After a couple hours of watching Daddy sleep, he decided to take a nap as well.

Grandma Cindy's Vacation

Grandma Cindy came to Orlando for a week for vacation! Where does she get all her energy. The first night she was here, she taught us how to play Mexican Train. Saturday, we all went to the coast for lunch and watched the cruise ships and went to the fresh fish market. Then we came home and she made fish for dinner and homemade carrots, peas, and squash for Aaron. Sun - Magic Kingdom. Monday the two Grandmas went on a wild adventure to Cocoa Beach. Tues - Epcot, Wed - Cocoa Beach, Thurs - Animal Kingdom, Fri - she left early in the morning.

First Playdate

Aaron had his first official play date today. Ashley came over to play. They had a great time. They talked baby talk to each other. Aaron played with her feet, feed her her bottle and gave her a kiss on the hand. He even rolled over on to be next to her. What a little flirt!

Mommy's Big Boy

Aaron has made all kinds of strides in the past month. We started by going to the doctor for his 6 month appointment. He was very healthy at 16lb 11oz and 28 inches long! He learned to roll over both ways and now he is rocking on this hands and knees. We got him a walker and he walks all over the kitchen. Two days ago, I discover he can sit up without falling over now. And just now, I put Aaron on his tummy and left the room to put his bottle in the fridge. I came back and he is sitting up by himself playing with his toys. He always waits until I turn my back to do something amazing!
I can't believe all the changes (and clothes) he has gone through. He must have gone through a growth spurt in the past week. I am certain he grew overnight. He is now 18lbs and has outgrown his 12 months clothes. In fact his 18 month clothes are fitting a little snug. What am I going to do with this big boy!

First Haircut

Michael has been talking about cutting Aaron's hair for about a month now. It really is out of control and cannot be tamed despite all our efforts. However, Granny Carol and I have protested the hair cut. Michael hasn't had a day off in months. The few days off he has had he spent doing school work and studying for his internet certification. He finally had a day off Sunday and I was busy at work. He took advantage of the opportunity and cut off my little darling's hair. When I walked through the door, I was in shock. Instead of being upset, I laughed and laughed. He looks absolutely adorable!
