Catching a ball and the evil laugh

Aiden seems to be doing a lot of new things really fast. Here are a couple of his newest "skills" if you call weird evil sounding laughter a skill.

Alright!

Just a little update on what we've been doing.
Steve is setting up a website for Western Transport and has been enjoying it. I've been doing a lot of the same writing and working on the website. I have also been working on new items for the store. I just finished making a paper flower and brad set (paper flowers are pretty big right now).

Aiden has been a funny guy lately.

I got a plastic bucket to put his blocks in. He dumps it out puts it on his head looks through the handle and runs around in circles, or pretends he is a monster. He also plays peek a boo with it. I've been trying to catch him doing it on video, but he hasn't been cooperating. I'll keep trying and hopefully you'll get to see it.


















Aiden also loves playing swords with Steve. He will even salute :)
























Another new thing: If you tell him he does a good job or if he figures something out on his own he will put both thumbs up and say Alright!


















I've been teaching Aiden a lot using the Montessori works method. He is getting pretty good a lot of things. He can button and unbutton buttons, use a zipper, trace objects, identify colors, identify 20 body parts and set the table. Here is a picture of him practicing :)

Snow Fun

The snow is starting to melt a little, but about a week ago we had a huge storm that brought lots of snow.


















What you could see out our kitchen window.
















This picture was taken level with the windowsill.
























Despite all the snow it was actually pretty warm outside and we let Aiden go out to play. He used to kind of tiptoe through the snow and complain when it got on him, but not this time. He got right in there and started playing.
