First Lost Tooth, Finally

At 6 1/2, Caleb finally lost his first tooth! We seriously thought it might never happen! And the big one is already growing in! We hadn't even noticed!

Congrats big guy! Now, lets see how diligent the tooth fairy assigned to our house will prove to be.

If you need to keep a 14 month old occupied...

may I suggest this toy?

He discovered it in the toy cabinet on Wednesday, and played with it for 20 minutes. Then I needed to run upstairs, so I placed it with him in the playpen for another 15 minutes. Then he cried when daddy took him out of the playpen because he had to leave the toy as we were off to run errands. Later in the afternoon, I placed him back in there with it, and he played in focused concentration for 45 minutes.

And he is playing with it now, still determinedly trying to work those locks as I type.

Aidan turns 5 today!

Happy Birthday Aidan!

We celebrated last Saturday with a Lego Indiana Jones themed party. A buddy got him hooked on this video game, and then he got it for Christmas, and now plays it whenever he is fortunate enough to get permission.

His interest in Indiana Jones provides a little insight into this little man. He does enjoy Star Wars, and will play imaginative games with his brothers, but this guy likes play that is much more grounded in real life than fantasy. Hmmm... Must have gotten that from his mommy.

Anyways, his much anticipated party was a blast, and he had so much fun with his best buds. Daddy even planned an incredible adventure quest that even included dodging a giant earth ball that came rolling at them down a narrow hallway.
