All smiles

Paisley, I hope you stay this way forever.  You have a smile that just lights up a room.  No one could help but to smile when you are around.  I hope this means you are a very happy baby.  Mommy, daddy and Aiden love you very much!
This is a hat your godmother Aunt Angie got you in Ireland.
And here is your first pink flamingo!  In case you did not know...this is totally a Dundalk thing!  Dundalk is where your mommy grew up.  
Even hiding behind the toy you can still see your smile!

Kitchen baby mobile

It's the simple things that seem to please.  Until you are mobile, the swinging pots and pans seem to make a great baby mobile :-)  Look at that smile!

Getting ready for Halloween means pumpkin carving!  As usual, Aiden you would not gwt your hands dirty.  But the end result is a cool pumpkin!

Fall fun!

What a fun day!  Today we went to Homestead Gardens to their Fall Fun Festival.  Aiden you did all sorts of fun things.  I was so proud of you!  You played in a moon bounce, took a pony ride, decorated a pumpkin and went on a hayride.  So much fun!
Now we have to carve the pumpkins we picked up!  What a great day.  It sadens me that you will not remember these days.  But I hope this blog will still be around for you to read and see all the fun things we did as a family.  Daddy and I love you so much!

Spatula Guitar

Clearly Aiden you have daddys musical talents.  You are always stomping around the house holding something pretending it is a guitar.  Most of the time it is a spoon or spatula.  You have also used your favorite puppy dog as bagpipes and buckets often turn into drums.  I am glad we have these photos in case you become a rockstar.  It will be great to say you got your start playing the spatula!

Wee Socks

I have discovered the socks that you get at the store just do not keep your feet warm.  So here is your first pair of knitted wool socks.  As fast as you are growing I will need to make several pair to get you through the winter!
Aiden as usual you are wanting to play with your sister already.  Patience bud,  she will be big enough to play with soon enough!
Oh...and a popsicle mold COULD be bagpipes :-)!

Last day of fair!  Mommy was mean and made you wear your dragon costume.  You were less than happy about this as you can see.  But you looked awesome!

She needs a hat!

Aiden I love how you are already wanting to spend time with Paisley.  You are being such a good big brother!  You decided she needed a hat today!

All smiles

Paisley you are finally settleing into a happy place.  Until now you have not been a fan of anything but being sniggled and slreping.  You are finally soending a bit of time just hanging out and takin it all in.  I am loving the big smiles that come with that!
Just hanging in the studio as mommy works on a quilt.  Not that I can get much work done with that cute little face!

Portraits of Paisley 3 weeks old

I wanted to do all the cutesy pics of you sleeping but you are just not a sound sleeper.  So I did the best I could while you were awake before you got mad :-).

This is the Quilt I made you.  I sincerely hope it is still around when you read this.  This was my first more complicated quilt project and I was very proud of it.  I hope you grow to love it for years to come and maybe one day pass it onto your daughter.

Trees for the little Lutes

Today we planted two Dogwood trees, one for each of you.  Paisley, yours is the one closest to the dinning room since that was where you were born.  Yours was also planted on top of your placenta.  Unfortunatly, Aiden we buried yours at the old house.  But we wanted you to have a tree at the new house as well.  It is going to be great watching them grow as you guys grow.

Just another day at the Renaissance Festival!

Aiden you were 2 weeks old your first day at fair.  Paisley, you were only 4 days!  Just a few pics of you guys at fair.
Aiden hamming it up!
Paisley you pretty much just slept through fair at this point.
This was Aidens onsie and mocassins from when he was a baby.  I love that there are some things that both of you have worn.  Hopefully these things will still be around as you guys get older.
I love the little curly q's on your head!
After a long day at fair you both pass out!
Renn fair is something very special to your dad an I.  We meet at fair and got married at fair.  I hope it is still around as you guys get older and that you enjoy it as much as we do!
