Let's eat...





















In the last couple of weeks we've started Aricin on food. It's been pretty entertaining to watch his expression after the first bite - it's got to be weird having no idea what someone's going to put into your mouth. Jeremiah loves to come in and lick the remnants of Aricin's dinner from his bib- kind of gross i know. And yes he did lick our poor child's face when i wasn't looking. Aricin still enjoys chewing on his socks, toes, and of course his rubber ducky during bath time. He also loves his Jumperoo which usually puts him to sleep. We call him our narcolyptic jumper. We managed to make it to 2 out of the last 3 Rockies games- they were great - Aricin wanted to wear his Dodger gear and we didn't stop him- he still has high hopes for his Dodgers this year. Last week he turned 6 months old and he's already crawling- only reverse though - he hasn't figured out how to switch gears and actually go forward - we're working on this.
Aaron is still working on the house and it's looking better and better - this week he's working on all of the lighting and electrical - he's quite the handy man. I'm still trying to unpack and make the house feel as homey as i can. The weather is getting cooler - the mountains around us are now covered in snow and briskness is actually quite nice. It's kind of fun to have seasons - I say this now of course before the first major snow. We're enjoying the Rec centers of Highlands Ranch and try to take the baby for a swim at least once a week. Tomorrow we are excited to hit a Colorado Avalanche Hockey Game - it will be my first. And next week we're going to have some visitors - Aaron's good friend Jon Parker is flying out to meet with Admin at Valor and we're hoping he'll get hired on. Also, my mom flies out in about 10 days - we can't wait. Well I best be going - i've got a screamer calling for me.
