Awww Summer!!!

Being home this summer is giving me a very good idea of what it will be like to finally stay home with my baby. There are SO many things that happen throughout the day that I miss by working. He is at such a fun age right now. He is imitating everything I do. Everything-big or little-catches his attention. Some of these small things are:

  • attempting to put my sock on his foot
  • handing me the pillows as I make the bed
  • rubbing the refridgerator door with his hand as I rub it with a cloth to clean it
  • wiping his own hand over a spot where milk spilt just after I wipe it
  • combing his hair with his hairbrush
  • moving his lips in the same way that I am moving mine
  • closing the drawer after he is done playing in it and after he sees me close it
  • Having to put the megablocks away before we walk away
Right now, I can't think of anymore things that he does. I'm sure that even if I listed out every little thing he did, tomorrow he would do something new.

Aiden's first mess in the kitchen

So, today I was making some fudge to give to one of Andy's coworkers. (This coworker has given us a lot of clothes, so I was trying to say thank you). I had to make this fudge in two batches. Well, I knew it was getting close to nap time, but I was being daring anyhow. I successfully made the first batch and was getting started on the second one. I had everything measured out and ready to pour in-the cherries, the cocoa powder the butter, the evaporated milk. Just as I was trying to melt the butter in the microwave and pull it out, here comes Aiden. Now, he hasn't pulled anything off the counters yet, but he has tried to touch everything. So I know to put all the items a bit back from the edge on the counters. Today, I thought I had. But, boy was I wrong! The measuring cup with the cocoa powder was just close enough for Aiden to pull it down on top of him. 1/2 cup of cocoa powder EVERYWHERE! I haven't had much experience with small disasters like this, so I was torn between trying to take a picture for memory sake and helping him and cleaning him up. I decided I had to have at least one picture! Then, I would start cleaning it up. Here is the picture:
