California is grey skies, a cool breeze that make the palm trees sway and spring is popping up everywhere. We have determined that Aden is our wild one :) my handsome wild boy! When I found out I was pregnant with Aden (a boy) I was kind of bummed because my heart was so set on another girl ... and my heart hurts still for even feeling that way because just look at him! He is everything our little family needed and I cannot love him enough! When we moved to California he was six months old and California looks good on him! He has the blondest hair, tannest skin and he just loves life, but mostly cars. It is a must that cars be with him wherever he goes, at breakfast he makes sure his cars are spread out on the table and in between crash, vroom vroom, he eats. He grabs a car or two for each hand when we take Adie to school or go anywhere in the car. He tells me to put some in my purse and totally remembers they are in there days later ... so weird! He now wants to know the color of every car we pass when we go for walks in the neighborhood and it sounds something like this, "Mama, car! Color Mama car! Color, fast, car fast Mama! It literally either makes you crazy or its the best thing ever. Lunch and dinner are the same, cars and he lines them all out and says, "traffic, Mama traffic!" He is car obsessed!
He is wild and full of energy, like non stop eating snacks, playing with cars, chasing Adie and wanting orange juice. Yogurt is his love language :) which I totally Googled, how much is too much yogurt for a toddler and he loves to read. We usually do our reading when he wakes up, he will grab a book and say, "read it" as he backs up into your lap! He rips out pages, throws them across the room and will sit there and read them to his teddy bear. He loves to be outside, his favorite thing to do is go on walks. That's where he gets to be adventurous, he will hunt down flowers, grab dandelions and almost eat them while he's trying to blow them for wishes and his car obsession continues. A little over half way he will want you to pick him up and carry him until we are almost home then wants down so he can run home and yells, "I'm home, I win!"
If you open your arms to him he will run into them for the best hugs and I can't even handle the way he says, "wuv you!" He says it so soft and sweet my Mama heart literally burst every. single. time. He loves to play hide n' seek, which he will go up to a wall/tree and count one, two, six and seven ... I come and loves when you give him hints of where Adie or Daddy are. He loves his sister and you can see it every day. He will follow her around, laugh with her and tell her no when she wants his cars. He says the last word you say when he's around you, he talks nonstop and it really is the best. He is into playing peek-a-boo and dances when the right song comes on and we all laugh. I love his little wild guts and I feel like one lucky Mama (most days) to be able to squeeze them whenever I want and not miss anything! Being here when they both need me the most is what I was meant to do! I think they are the only two things I am doing right, which not everyone agrees but I sure do! :)
I never knew how much I could love you! You have completely taken over my whole heart and I love you more and more every day my Aden babes! XO!
