So, last night it was time to introduce Mr. Ayden to a new veggie.  The veggie of choice: squash.  Check out his reaction…so adorable!

ayden and the green giant.

Ayden had his first experience with green beans the other night. As you can see from the video, he was less than impressed! However, I am happy to report that his palate has now accepted the taste of green beans, and he ate a whole jar during his lunch today!


(Oh, and feel free to leave a comment by clicking on the post-it note above!)

oh the joys of being an expectant mother.

Posted by Tori on Jul 20, 2010 in ayden.

Ayden and I were shopping in Babies R Us today (saved $20 on our $60 purchase of diapers and wipes BTW…) and were stopped by a woman expecting her first child, who was shopping with her mother. They thought Ayden was so sweet, and spent several minutes talking and playing with him. We carried on brief conversation, and then…the hormones kicked in! Both of them simultaneously began crying. I mean, not just “misty eyed” but more like crying at your favorite romance movie or novel. They both looked at one another and exclaimed, “I’m crying! I don’t know why!” As they wiped the tears from their eyes, with a bit of a chuckle, they were sure to tell Ayden that those were just happy tears.

It made me think of the joys of being an expectant mother…joys I get to experience all over again as I await the arrival of our second precious little one. The Lord wired us women a little differently. And I love it! I love being able to share such a random, yet sweet moment with complete strangers in a store.

God, thank you for loving us so patiently and unconditionally…even when we have no idea why we’re crying. Thank you for the incredible privilege of being a mother and the opportunity to put aside all else to invest in the lives or our babes.  Help me to always lead them to you.

Happy 1/2 Birthday, Ayden!

Posted by Tori on Jul 18, 2010 in ayden.

Today my baby is six months old!  I can hardly believe it!  The past six months have been such a wild ride.  I wouldn’t trade these moments for anything in the world.  It is fascinating to watch my son grow, develop, and learn new things each day.  He is my handsome little man!

When I was in college, my group of friends had a tradition when it came to celebrating birthdays.  We would wake up early that morning and make “Birthday Waffles.”  We topped them with everything, from fruit to peanut butter to ice cream…they were sooo good!  We all decided that we would continue this tradition with our children & whenever we could be together on our birthdays.  I can’t wait to share Ayden’s first “Birthday Waffles” with him in six more months!!  Thanks, F2 sisters…miss you girls!

just after eating birthday waffles for cherith's birthday!

my little man.
