When we got home he had a lot to do... We ate a late lunch, made the meal plan/grocery list, went to pick up the pets (Polly is still doing GREAT!), dropped the pets off at home, went to the grocery, came back home, put the groceries away while we made dinner then ate dinner. By the time we were ready to start Auden's bedtime routine he was still in a good mood but it was late and our window for easy transition to sleep had closed. After his bath I tried to nurse him to sleep in our bed, since David was ready to go to sleep, but he kept rolling over and wanting to play with Polly who was under the covers.

I love having a baby and though I try to remind myself that there is no way to slow or stop this one way train, I can't help but realize that one day he won't want to snuggle with me and won't *need* me anymore. It can be hard or a little "inconvenient" during busy times, to have a little person depend on you for so much; but for the most part, I love that he needs/wants his mommy as much as he does. I try my best to savor every moment because these days will pass all too soon and I know I'll miss them so much! We love just letting him be a baby.
We are so proud of Ayden and how awesome he did this past weekend! He is such a trooper and despite his strong personality he was able to go with the flow and be very adaptable.
Tomorrow is "put the house back together day" because it is a WRECK. I also plan to finish switching out Ayden's clothes from summer 3-6 month to Fall/Winter 6-9 month. I can't wait to see all of the new wardrobe options that we have now!
