April Days....

Lee's parents were in from Florida this past weekend, just for fun.....

He would tell Papa Tim to be a gangster and then they would turn their hats sideways....

We all had a great time, and Aaron loved having someone to always play with him constantly and stealing sips from Gi Gi's diet cokes. Lee's mom also helped me with adding some new decor to Aaron's big boy room. When I get things more situated and all done, I will post some pics, but it is looking great!

Random pic - a neighborhood cat often wanders to our house to find Aaron and get some extra love. Aaron loves the kitty.... But he always says, "Aaron no have a kitty. Makes dada sick." At least he is prepared for a no-pet future! =)

Lee also began this past week the first phase of a year long process of getting his front two teeth replaced with implants after an old injury. UGH. It is a long and EXPENSIVE process - wear mouth guards, people!!!! They had to extract the first tooth and leave it blank for two days, which would horrify me, but Lee didn't really care - He had a great sense of humor about it. The guys in our Lifegroup didn't want him to feel silly so they came over with matching teeth....
So great! =)

I thought Aaron was going to end up looking like daddy too this week - He took a nasty fall hitting his face on the tile floor Monday night and as blood poured out of his mouth, I thought for sure a tooth was out. Fortunately he merely bit a huge chunk out of his lip. Very painful and swollen - I felt very sorry for him, but he has been a trooper!

He told me that he couldn't kiss me anymore because of his owie..... =) I still get them anyway!

Moving on Up

This past week, my little boy started a new phase in a big boy bed.

Some dear friends had a twin they were not using, and gave it to us. Aaron has loved it and it honestly has been a fairly uneventful change, in a good way. The only thing that seems to cause him stress is when his covers are messed up in the night, as he is quite anal. I hear a call "Mama! Can't fix it! Help you!" Most people probably think he is quite old at over two and a half to be just now getting out of his crib, but most of the advice that I got was to not move him out until necessary.....

Which brings me to my to next point - For all you non-facebookers, come November 8th, we are due for another Stephenson in the family! So in a few months, the crib will be back in use. I am feeling pretty poorly these past few weeks - but since it is always difficult for us to not only get pregnant, but also to keep a pregnancy, we are grateful for the growing and so far, thriving little miracle that God has blessed us with. At least, STAY THANKFUL is what I tell myself as I hang over the toilet. =)

This was his reaction everytime he opened an egg:
So exciting!!!

And of course, the real reason for Easter:

Some things about our week.....

Brynn and Owen came and played all day last Saturday so we had a lot of activity and fun together....
I just thought that picture was so sweet of them leaning on each other.

Impossible to get the 3 of them to actually look at the camera at the same time....


Aaron has suddenly found it very exciting to comb my hair in the evenings. Lee doesn't appreciate my jokes about him being a possible future hair stylist....

He also finds it interesting to read to us lately. It's hilarious - if he knows the book, he will sort of remember certain things about different pages to say, but if he doesn't, he just makes things up or just does gibberish. Here's one where he doesn't know what it says.... (Plus it's not very exciting as he's looking at the table of contents.)
