|Little Man at breakfast this morning.|
I have also decided to keep up the daily blog even after Ayden's birthday only David is going to become involved in the writing as well. We are still working out the details but we have some exciting plans in store.
In Ayden news his babbling has been taken to a whole new level. He strings all kinds of sounds together and tries to communicate verbally with us as much as he can. He has now added "di!" for drink and "ba" for going backwards down the stairs. We think he actually thinks the stairs are called "turn around and go down backwards". He'll be happy to learn that the real one syllable word is much easier to say. He brings is objects and says, "a-da" like, "what's that" and repeats it with increasing volume and urgency until we tell him what it is. He stares at our mouths while we talk as if studying the shapes and sounds we are making. Now that he has mastered the walking thing, he has moved onto language and we can see the wheels turning. He is soaking it all up and we like it!
It is still Christmas over here! My sister who lives in New York wasn't able to make it home for New Year's which is when we were going to have my family's Christmas exchange. Since she never came and then Ayden slept the entire New Year's Day away we still haven't had our exchange so we are doing it today. It is actually nice to know we are having a leisurely gift exchange without any holiday parties or dinners looming over our heads. I'm totally fine with making Christmas last forever :).
