Where is time going so quickly? And Trip to the Children's Museum

How can it possibly already be October? I'm less than one week away from starting the third trimester and we still haven't picked out a name for our new little guy! I even had a dream that the baby could talk to me through my stomach and still wouldn't tell me what name he would like.

I've been trying to be good about getting pictures (since I did it with Aiden). Although I think I am not all that cute pregnant. My skin gets splotchy, my hair goes limp and won't curl or do anything else, and I always look tired. Hopefully these pictures are small enough that no one is looking that close! It's about time to take another one.

On September 24th we all headed over to the local Children's Museum for a free day at the museum. It's a pretty cool place. Aiden loved the shadow wall. You stand up against a wall and a light flashes and then you can walk away and still see your shadow on the wall. Unfortunately, you can't really get pictures of it. But I got pictures of everything else.

Aiden continues to love preschool, and his first parent teacher conferences are coming up in about two weeks. So are his first school pictures. It's been amazing to see how much he learns and how much some outside influence can do. He tried cucumbers with snack because one of the other kids said they loved cucumbers, and guess what? Aiden likes cucumbers. Go figure, I've been trying to get him to try them forever!

Aiden's Birthday Week

Aiden wanted a car theme birthday this year. He was really excited about decorating and it was fun to see what he thought would be neat. He helped me make the banner. I made it so that the cars can come off so we can use it again.

Aiden also had very definite opinions about the cake. It had to have 5 cars since he was turning 5.

We got Aiden a bike and he got to ride it for the first time.

Some other snapshots from the party:

On Aiden's actual birthday on Wednesday we went over to a local place called Zonkers. I had a pass for him to play in the bouncy houses and he had a blast.

Aiden wanted me to take a video of him reenacting one of his favorite clips from Mythbusters where they slip on banana peels. Unfortunately our camera doesn't take great video, but oh well!
Here is the mythbusters clip:

Here is Aiden's version:

The party was a get together with family because Aiden had requested going to the zoo instead of having friends over. So the Saturday after his birthday we headed to the Kansas City Zoo.
