More Strange Sightings

Blake checked on her and she was asleep on the floor...what a nut!
That's the night light shining...sorry about that.
Does this look comfortable to you?

Check Out Those Eyes

Now, I realize that I'm totally biased, but that is one good lookin' little boy. Aiden will be 4 1/2 in a few days...and he seems so big to me lately. I mean, I know he's gonna be the big brother of 3 little sisters he probably should be older. But his mannerisms, and vocabulary, and train of thought lately, seem so grown up. I started doing preschool at home with him and Gracen last week, and they are really enjoying it...especially Aiden. He is so excited to learn how to write letters and to sound words out. I totally set myself up to believe that I couldn't teach him at home, because we wouldn't work well together...but he is proving me wrong. We actually work great together. (It's his little sister that's proving to be more challenging) Blake and I have started praying about school for him next Fall. I know it seems far off, but with another baby coming along and life happening, it's going to fly by. We have a really great public school down the road, with lots of parental involvement. It's the kind of school I always pictured my kids going to. We also have the option of homeschooling for a little while...which surprisingly God has really changed my heart on. And the other school option for us, seems like such a great combination. It's a university model school. Aiden would go to school T/Th and be home the other days. It's kind of in between homeschooling and private school. So I would be homeschooling him M/W. It's also much more affordable then all day private. My best friend Kendall's daughter started Kinder there this as with most things we watch Kendall and Adam go first at all things "children", and see how it works out for them. It's a pretty good system. :)
But back to Aiden...I am really enjoying him. I really like age 4. He's turning into such a considerate, compassionate, and thoughtful little guy. He reminds me so much of his Daddy. I get such a kick out of our dialogue...actually his dialogue with most people makes me laugh. He has quite the vocabulary, and once he hears a word he adds it into the mix quickly. His latest saying to everything is "Well, I suppose so." So I'll say "Aiden do you want to play outside with your cars?" His response, "Well, I suppose so." My parents came over a few weeks ago, and my dad was rubbing Aiden's head, while he played with his Leapster. He paused his game, looked up at my dad and said, "Grandad, you're really distracting me." Oh, what are we going to do with him? I can only imagine Blake as a little boy. I am so blessed to have this little guy as the protector of ALL these girls!

A Proud Moment

Grier finally has enough hair to have bed head! Let me wipe the tears from my eyes...

This was a sweet moment. The girls were sitting together in the chair and Gracen asked me to take their picture. How can you resist that?
