Aiden is very perplexed at the white, cold material covering the trees, the grass and the cars. Here he is looking at the woods in our backyard.

I can remember the first time I noticed snow. It was such a mind blowing experience.

visiting mama jon

We went to visit my grandmother. She loves it when Aiden goes for a visit. Of course we get to go so seldom that every time she sees him he's changed dramatically. Here's Aiden telling my mom some story.

with his pal lynx

Aiden loves to hug the cats. As much as the cats try to stay away from him, he finds them and lays on them. He is very sweet. Here he is either preparing to kiss Lynx or tell him a secret...not sure which.

sunshine happy lion

We went to Roanoke for the weekend to visit Nana Beth and Grandpa. I took Aiden's Halloween costume so that we could take a picture for our annual halloween card. Nana Beth is very good at setting up for "occasion" cards.

We had a great time. Aiden got to go to Grandpa's office and see all of the big construction equipment. We also got to go to Mr. Reed's farm to see the horses, goats, chickens, lamas, etc. It was a wonderful, relaxing visit.

Aiden at Reed's farm. I love the picture of him from the back where he is feeding the horses....he looks like a baby cowboy.

Okay, this rooster made everyone a little nervous.

I was really amazed at how cool Aiden was with the animals. These huge horses and mules didn't scare him in the least bit.
He was feeding them right out of his hand.

Aiden working the equipment at SC Rossi, Inc - his grandpa's company. Aiden really enjoyed himself.

this is my boy

this is my boy

there is no other boy like him

he is wonderfully unique

if his smile could be measured, it would be measured in miles

if his sweetness was be bottled, it would be labeled honey

if his personality could be summed up, it would sparkling diamond

the little hokie

Check out Aiden's jersey... VT # 1

Aiden got dressed for game day. I wonder if he will be a hokie one day. All parents want the best for their child so I guess its okay to admit that I hope he goes to an Ivy league school. ; )

Happy Birtday Daddy!!!

aiden is cruising

Did you know that a word has been coined to define the baby stage of taking steps while holding on to the couch, coffee table, or other pieces of furniture for balance? Who knew? Not me. Anyway, Aiden is now "cruising". Here he is cruising in the buff but luckily, Mommy censored the the private areas....Aiden, you'll thank me for this in years to come.

my little angel

Its amazing how quickly Aiden is changing. He looks like a little boy in this picture, not a baby.

Here he is playing in his "playroom". It takes this little boy about 1/2 to totally wreck his playroom. He has a lot of energy, people.

BTW - as you can see from this picture, Aiden now has two whole teeth! His top teeth have not started to come in yet.

look at those arches

I love Aiden's little arched eyebrows.

This kid is very photogenic. If someone were to take a close-up of my face, I would not want to share it the world.
