Et tutu, Andrew?

I went to pick up AJ at daycare today, and apparently they were playing "dress-up". Or at least that's what we're hoping anyway. I opened the door to the classroom and out came AJ wearing his tutu. He went right over to the bubble mower to "mow" the hallway. I'm not sure if I can pull this look off when mowing the lawn around here!

MOM's SIDE NOTE**** At LEAST he's pushing around a lawnmower - a masculine item lol

More Christmas

We've had a lot more "Christmas" activities going on in the past few weeks.
We put our trees up and AJ even helped decorate. We had the ESPN Christmas party, the Bell Holiday gathering the day after the ESPN Christmas party and just hanging around the house getting ready for the holidays. Even though it's been a busy few weeks we have all been having fun and enjoying the season. Here are some pictures.

Here comes Santa Claus.... There goes AJ

AJ has been very excited about Santa this year. Mom was excited at the possibility of another awesome picture opportunity with Santa. AJ has been saying "santa" and "tree" and loves when we stroller by Santa at the mall and will wave at Santa. Santa decided to make a visit to AJ's daycare in early December so I thought it would be a great (free) picture opportunity. AJ was very excited when I got there and told him Santa was in school and we were going to go see him. He kept saying Santa and waving while we were in line. Our turn comes up and I get my camera all ready and AJ walks right up to Santa and gives him a high five and even accepts a little toy doggy that Santa had for him. However when I told AJ to get closer so I could get a picture he just said "no", "bye bye Santa" and ran towards me. Santa thought it was funny. Here is our Age 1 Santa picture of Santa and AJ

It's REALLY Potty Time!

AJ actually used the potty tonight! We went upstairs to brush his teeth, and he started tugging on his pants and saying “Pee”. Well, we got the pants and diaper off really quick. Soon after, AJ was using his potty for the first time. One of those “priceless” moments – I had to yell downstairs to tell Millie the big news. It doesn’t take much to excite us these days!

Messy Marvin

AJ really likes his food, that's no secret. Here he is enjoying some spaghetti...

And here he is enjoying some chocolate cake.
