Love those eyes - even on a muddy little face :-)
I can't believe Aidan is almost 2! He is growing in new ways every day and it's a lot of fun (and work) to be his mommy. He is our family parrot at the moment - he repeats EVERYTHING! It's so funny to hear things that Eóin and I say repeated during the day. Things like his newest "Sorry mommy, I can't", or "just a second" - such polite ways to disobey - it's hard not to laugh.
I decided to try a go at potty training the last two days. He always tells me when his diaper needs changing and even sometimes before he even goes, so I thought it might be worth a shot. Today, he went twice on the potty and 4 times in his underwear (although one was my fault for not bringing him in from outside sooner). I can't decide whether to keep going or not...have to think about it more. I asked him today if he needed to go potty and he said "No mommy, I don't think so" - another Eóin phrase he picked up along the way.
He loves singing and makes up songs about everything. Not necessarily real songs, but songs about what he is doing or eating - it's so cute. He also LOVES to color! He probably colors 3 or 4 times a day. He especially loves to draw "circles" and is learning his colors pretty quickly from all his art projects :-) Cars and trains are his toy of choice and when he is not coloring, you'll find him playing with those.
He is also a snuggle bug. We can't go for more than an hour without needing a hug and kiss or snuggle :-) I won't complain - I know he won't be asking for snuggles when he is a teenager!
Well that's about all for now - time to put said kiddo to bed :-)
