Spring Cleaning

AJ always the good helper wanted to help get the front yard spring ready. He loves working with tools and using his toy mower around the yard. I keep telling AJ I hope this continues well into his teen years!!
Here are some pictures:

Easter 2007

AJ was very excited to see a basket with CARS Sunday morning after breakfast. He actually ignored the candy and went right for the cars.

Once we got him all dressed up he knew we were going out and rushed to get his hat before I could get any pictures. He refused to take it off so we'll consider this his version of an Easter bonnet.
AJ got a basket at Nana & Papa Aviles' house and he was very excited to see a YELLOW shovel and of course his favorite candy: m&m's.

Dad was not impressed with all the drool from the lollipop AJ was enjoying :)

One Fish - Two Fish - check out our little fish!

AJ has been attending swim classes since he was a little over 6 months old. He's become quite the little fish. We have 1 more class in this session so I went online to check out when the next class session starts and there's a picture of AJ and me that they used for the brochure!! I will be picking up brochures and AJ will be holding autograph sessions soon LOL. I also took some of my own pics the week before this was taken and i'll be posting those as soon as I get them developed and scanned! Keep checking back for updates.

Here's the brochure picture:

Big Boy Table

AJ got a big boy Lightning McQueen table and chairs from Nana and Papa Aviles for his birthday. He loves sitting at his table to have his snacks and meals! When it's time for snacks or meals I tell him to sit at his table and he goes right over and waits. He's pretty good at staying through meals and snacks and sometimes he wants mom to sit next to him too. He's had good practice at school since that's the structure he's used to. So far he's eaten at the table every day except the day I made chicken pot pie. For some reason that day he wanted to sit in his high chair. Not quite sure why - maybe he didn't want the dogs too close to him. He tells them to get "out" when it comes to meal or snack time since that's what we tell the dogs when we sit down at the dinner table.

Here is AJ having breakfast at his new table.
