Aden is doing so many new things lately it's hard to keep track! He has definitely entered the separation anxiety stage. He starts to cry really hard when we leave in the morning and it breaks my heart! Gosh, I hope that stage passes quickly. He is also able to follow simple instructions like putting a block back into the container or clapping his hands and my personal favorite giving KISSES. He loves to shower everyone with open mouth sugars and I LOVE IT!
Also, he is taking after his daddy in regards to his new found love for popcorn. Last night, James was giving him pieces of popcorn and every time Aden would say "tank you". Yes, Aden has a growing vocabulary with Mama, Dada (Daddy sometimes), Bye, Thank you aka "Tank Jew", Hello, Bo, Ball and the newest NOOOO.
Walking is surely to come ANY DAY now. He cruises everywhere and can stand alone until he realizes he's not holding on to anything. He was late to crawl so I'm assuming this may take a little time as well. The fact that everyone carries him everywhere I'm sure has not helped the matter any.
We're trying to plan a vacation to SeaWorld next year. I can’t wait to get out of town for a while; we've had it tough lately and deserve a break. James has been working 7 days a week trying to catch us up. I'm a lucky gal, I know. He is what every woman wants. Handsome, hardworking, loving and caring.
This reminds me, I was having the most vivid dream when he woke me up this morning. I dreamed that I was giving birth to a new baby. Everything was opposite of how it happened with Aden. My sister Amber was in the room along with my mom and James. It was a vaginal birth with no meds. When the baby came out we didn’t know whether it would be a boy or girl but when the doctor threw the baby on my stomach it was a boy. I was so happy in the dream I was sobbing. He was small, maybe a 6 or 7 pounder. With a huge amount of black hair. James took him from me, kissed him and said "look at my sweet Rayland Everleigh."
I hope that dream comes true one day.
