It's Monday night and Eli will not go to sleep. Both babies have slept through the night for over a week! Hopefully, this is just a small bump in the road. Speaking of the boys, they had their 9 month checkup today. They are looking good and up to around the 10th percentile in height and weight!
Back to last week, Ariel modeling her new coat that daddy got her. Mommy doesn't like it but it's getting lots of compliments.
Elaine and the kids and Justin and Katie came to visit. It was our first time meeting Justin's girlfriend. We liked her a lot.
Matching my new Whiskey. Not intentional.
We had Aden's conference. He's doing pretty well. He's strong in math but not so much in reading. Although he's really coming along.
Art at school.
Ariel has been drinking her milk in the morning from a sippy cup since she gave up the bottle. We knew it wasn't the best for her but it was one small vice and actually made it easier for us. She's up super early wanting her milk. We could stumble downstairs, give her the sippy cup and put on the tv and go back to bed without worrying about her spilling the milk. But she told us she's 4 now and done with the sippy cups!
Aden watched Aladdin the night before we went to the show. This is the picture he drew about the movie. His Genie came out great!
Last Wednesday, Aden was off from school and Ariel had school and Amy's mom had the babies. A great opportunity for a day trip. We took the train to New York City to see Aladdin on Broadway. Aden had been on the train before but this will be the first trip he remembers.
If you know about the Baked by Melissa tiny cupcakes, well, they started selling gluten free ones just a few days ago.
Aden's mind was blown.Of course he had to try a bunch before lunch.
We walked through Times Square, which was nuts, and ate at a small Italian place.
Walking through the city. It had been too long since we had been there.
We made the mistake of wandering into Toys R Us. Aden had a total meltdown.
Time to head to the show.
We got someone to take a picture.
Let's start this thing already!
Aden's friend Brandon was up a level!
The show was great. Aden had such a good time. He watched most of it with his mouth dangling open. We were psyched we got to see the original Genie who won the Tony last year. We need to do that more often!
