Sloane and I took Summer, Carlie and Alex to the movies today. Mamaw was happy to keep Aidan for the day. She said that was the first time she has ever had just him, I couldn't believe it he is almost a year old!! They got to spend some quality time together. We took them to see G-force (a make-up movie trip since we had to leave I Love You Beth Cooper last week. It was a cute movie, but not one to go see if you don't have kids. It is pretty boring, unless you have your child to watch. There is just something about watching Alex watch a movie that HE thinks is funny. I love to listen to his little laugh and watch his facial expressions. These moments are so special and I know that they are slowly slipping away from me. I truly try to cherish every single one, because soon he won't think that gerbil'spies working for the FBI would make a funny movie, and that will be sad:(
I am feeling a little down in the dumps about Aidan turning a year old. His first year of life has just gone by too fast. I feel like he should still be just a couple of months old, not walking around and trying to talk. The time just flies by. I have myself a busy day planned for tomorrow. I have a long to do list to get accomplished before Friday. We are having a big birthday party, so I have to get my house spotless and I have a lot of cooking to do. It is going to be bittersweet to watch him blow out his candle and dig into his cake. I can't wait to watch him, but I am so not ready for it to already be here. He is such a sweet baby and I am so thankful to God for blessing my life with him. It is easy to get caught up in the day to day busy parts of life, but the moments are precious and they go by faster than you want.
