Typical Friday and Saturday

Spread the love


 

DSC_0089

Just a typical weekend but with lots of pictures.

DSC_0092

And Aiden doesn’t mind one bit.

DSC_0095

He loves the attention.

DSC_0101

I wonder if that’s why sometimes it looks as though he’s posing for the camera.

DSC_0106

This Friday night Mommie feels particulary tired and lazy, so we relax with some TV.

DSC_0109

It’s almost bed time and we’re watching 愛,回家.

DSC_0110

As usual his blankie is close by.

DSC_0116

We go through nearly the same ritual every night.

DSC_0127

Aiden’s normal bath time is between 8:00 and 8:25.

做乜要我瞓覺喎

Then we go downstairs to enjoy some milk.

DSC_0132

He may or may not have a little playing time depending on how tired he is and when bath time ended.

DSC_0133

Aiden is asked to put away his toys.

DSC_0134

This TV stand now truly belongs to Aiden.

DSC_0135

He knows at the right hand corner of it is where his books go.

DSC_0138

Usually he just tosses it around that section.

DSC_0165

But sometimes he will surprise us by putting his books in a pile.

DSC_0169

We might play brush your hair, for some reason he enjoys this.

DSC_0170

Now he has a comb to use as well so we might switch off, or use both.

DSC_0185

If time permits we’ll read bits and pieces of a story or two.

DSC_0199

This week he is into Dr. Seuss’ “The Foot Book.”

DSC_0200

Between 8:30 and 9:00, we will check on him from time to time to see signs of sleepiness.

DSC_0236

He may rub his eyes or just frequently find his blankie, although tonight he did not want to sleep.

DSC_0238

He might fight it a little bit, but he’s really good about it (when he’s tired).  “Aiden want to “覺覺豬?” He’ll know to take his blankie to go to Daddie. If Daddie is on the couch, he will lean against Daddie with blankie.  Super sweet.  And of course we always ask for kisses and return the favor!

DSC_0223

Aiden is so used to the school schedule that he woke up a little bit after 6 A.M. on Saturday.

DSC_0249

As usual it’s bonding time for Aiden and Mommie.

DSC_0257

Mommie won’t allow Aiden to go bug Daddie until she is sure Daddie is awake.

DSC_0285

Then we relax at home until it’s time to go out for lunch.

DSC_0288

Daddie brought down the dino toy today (that Daddie bought at least 9 months ago).

DSC_0299

Aiden immediately claimed it, even before Daddie said it’s for him.

DSC_0307

New toy and new clothes! What’s the special occasion?

DSC_0308

Before lunch, we decided to make a quick stop at the Cedar Glen Park.

DSC_0314

Another park we haven’t been to.

DSC_0316

Aiden saw the swings and was ready to GO!

DSC_0356

Oh no! The swing squeaks.

DSC_0357

Not that he minded, but it drove Mommie nuts.

DSC_0358

We had to switch to the other swing, after we fixed the chain links.

DSC_0359

Aiden didn’t want to leave the swings as usual.

DSC_0388

Time for the slides!

DSC_0392

We had to wait until Daddie wiped down the wet slide.

DSC_0394

Aiden tried to be as patient as possible.

DSC_0398

Down, down, down… but off to another slide, since Daddie didn’t like that one.

DSC_0400

Whoa! Aiden chose to go down the slide the big kid way.

DSC_0402

He was a little afraid, but the slide was really short.

DSC_0403

Mommie wasn’t sure if Aiden would whack his head against the slide and scare himself.

DSC_0404

But Aiden was very good!

DSC_0405

He must be thinking “not as bad as I thought.”

DSC_0406

That was a piece of cake.

DSC_0408

And he chose to go down the same way again!

DSC_0416

It was Mommie that still felt a little iffy.

DSC_0417

Can you really do it Aiden, or are you going to flip over?

DSC_0418

It’s hard for Mommie to let go!

DSC_0419

But look at that smile!

DSC_0420

What a big boy!

DSC_0421

He probably wishes it was just a little bit longer.

DSC_0424

The one thing we didn’t like about the park was too much sand.

DSC_0426

Sand in shoes is not what we want to deal with right before lunch.

DSC_0427

Time to check out the scenery.

DSC_0435

Not much to see.

DSC_0437

So Aiden slides some more.

DSC_0460

Whee!!!!!

DSC_0464

Mommie did a better of staying back this time.

DSC_0465

But Mommie has to admit, I was still alert.

DSC_0466

Especially since Aiden is far from being conscious of his surroundings.

DSC_0467

At least safety wise, he is not.

DSC_0468

Okay, what does Mommie expect? He’s not even 16 months yet.

DSC_0469

But Aiden did slide backwards half the time.

DSC_0470

Don’t get your head stuck Aiden.

DSC_0476

We don’t want to call the fire truck out here.

DSC_0485

Aiden looks all happy now, but he wasn’t happy to put on this jacket.

DSC_0489

It’s a different texture from what he normally wears, and he doesn’t like the feel of the fabric.

DSC_0490

This little boy has no patience.

DSC_0492

If he wants it, he wants it right away.

DSC_0500

If he doesn’t want it, it’s like tug of war.

DSC_0502

I know he’s a boy, but when did he become such a boy?

20130413_120045

He was such a little gentle fellow the first year.

20130413_120245

We are at Mitsuwa Food Court as Daddie really wanted to try out the Beef Tongue dish.

20130413_120249

He’s just having so much making silly faces.

20130413_120249(0)

An advertisement to keep him busy 🙂

20130413_123930

Daddie’s drink – his prize!

20130413_123854

Even though he doesn’t get to drink any.

DSC_0528

Awww, did you hurt yourself again?

DSC_0532

Good thing you get over it fast!

DSC_0549

Fun on the bed!

DSC_0558

Daddie says he loves the fluffy obstacle – the blanket

DSC_0563

He loves looking at Daddie’s 少年 photo

DSC_0570

Today we didn’t do much after Mitsuwa.

DSC_0575

Just relaxing at home and doing chores.

DSC_0591

Aiden loves to go upstairs, since he seldom goes.

DSC_0592

He finds the rack quite entertaining.

DSC_0602

Aiden knows so many commands now, I’m amazed.

DSC_0606

It didn’t take long and he learned “脷 “.  He will stick out his tongue to show it.

DSC_0617

Fast moving too!  Don’t touch Aiden!

DSC_0619

And just like that he can switch to rest mode.

DSC_0625

But not for long!

DSC_0628

Energizer bunny!

DSC_0634

Mommie needs more training to keep up with you.

DSC_0640

Off to mess with the printer.

DSC_0648

He loves to see the blue light and hear the noise. (so noisy)

DSC_0654

Another new love: playing with the closet door.. must teach him to treat it with care.

DSC_0676

The basketball is on the heavy side.

DSC_0677

But he will still throw it, to watch it bounce.

DSC_0683

Relaxing with Mommie?

DSC_0686

Or relaxing at Mommie’s expense?
