Two Months and Big News

Happy Birthday Aaron! He's two months old today. I wasn't able to take pictures this morning, so these were right before bed and he looks tired.

Now, the reason I couldn't take pictures in the morning is because I had not gotten Aaron his birthday cake yet! you have any idea how tired you can get during your first week back at work? I am a Zombie! Anyway, I didn't get Aaron a cake. So, this morning I could not take pictures. I wasn't at all sure when I would get Aaron a cake since I go to daycare at lunch. My husband, whom I just LOVE, indulged me by taking HIS lunch break to go buy Aaron a Happy Birthday YUM! Cupcake AND he bought him candles for the cake. There are two on it. He tried to get a big '2' candle, but they were all out of '2's! Anyway, can you believe he did that?

Now look at this little sleeper. It's about the cutest thing ever. Friends of Kim and John got it for Aaron. But, we've only had it a week or so and I think we are going to have to retire it! It's a 3 Mo sleeper and would you look at how tight it is on his long legs? It's gaping on one side and it looks like a wetsuit on the other side! I noticed this week that his 3 Mo onesies are getting tight, too. Wow. He is a growing boy! I think I'm going to have to start putting him in 3-6 Mo outfits this week. I'm very cool with that, though, because it's a whole new set of photos to take! I'm sure Aaron will love it.

And now for the gift Mommy and Daddy got today. If you have been reading this blog for a very long time, you know that when I got pregnant we started looking at daycares for Aaron. And then I had a major meltdown because the best daycare in town (which is in a church) and the daycare at our church (also good) have eighteen month wait lists! I don't know how you are supposed to get an infant into them unless you have quite a premonition. But, anyway, we got on the wait lists and knew God would put us there if He wanted us to be there. We also knew, though, that enrollment isn't until August, so we would have to send Aaron someplace else May though July regardless. So we settled on the place where he is now and we do have friends that go there and it is a fine daycare, it just wasn't our first or second choice. We found out last week that we didn't make the August enrollment at either of the churches and we were disappointed but continued to pray. This morning, I got a call from our FIRST choice. One of their families is moving and they have a spot for Aaron JUNE 1! Even earlier than if he had made the enrollment. And the timing is perfect because it matches the amount of notice we need to give his current daycare. We are so, so excited and blessed. We just thank God for answered prayers. Like this one...

I'm so happy for you! I hope this will take some of the pressure off that you were feeling about daycare. As I've said before to you, I think daycare is good for Aaron and that working right now is good for you. I know I'm the odd grandparent, but that's okay with me!
Love---OHIO mom/gma

Can you believe he is 2 months already?? Time flies by so fast doesn't it? Before we know it, we will be celebrating our babies 1st birthdays. Crazy uh? This is the first time I have had a chance to look at your blog. I am still catching up, but I wanted to tell you how precious he is.

We knew with all your organazational skills that you would breeze right thru that "going back to work thing". I know it's hard to leave your little one with someone else but it will be good for him to be around others and it will give you a bit of a break also. Love the fact that he pees all over you guys. That is sooo funny. We've all been there (if you've had a boy, you know what we mean! Ha.)
Love ya all. Dad and Sheri
