Aidan 9 Months Old

Today Aidan is 9 months old. I can't believe that 9 months ago, we were in the hospital anticipating his arrival. We took Aidan to his 9 month well baby check up. Aidan is 22 lbs which puts him in his 75% for weight, and he is 27 inches long which puts him in the 15% for height. So we have a short fat baby boy :o) Aidan has yet to master crawling, but he sure does try. It is so funny to watch. He will get on all fours and then balance himself on his hands and tippy toes and lunge forward. He is now eating big boy foods, puffs, pieces of bananas, peaches, crackers, etc.

Today we took the boys to the Zoo. It was such a beautiful day outside, and we had a great day as a family at the Zoo. Ace really ENJOYED himself. He loved the Elephants, Hippos, Lions, and Tigers :o) I am glad we got to take the boys to the zoo before we left VA.

We are sad and happy to announce that we finally have plans to move out of Northern Virginia. We will be moving to Hot Springs, AR. Phil and I both agree that we do not want to raise our children in Northern Virginia. The cost of living is way to expensive for us and this area is a little to fast paced for us. Phil has liven in Northern VA all of his life, and has been itching to get out of here, so decided that a move would be best for our family. I have been wanting to move to Hot Springs to live next to my sister....and through that idea out to Phil. He turned it down PLENTY of times, until he started looking into Hot Springs, and fell in love with that area too :o) Phil is very excited because he will be able to pursue his dream of becoming a Police Officer or owning a Gun Store. I am very excited because I will be living next to my best sister :o)

We will be moving the second week of June. A while back Phil and Ace were asked to be part of a friend's wedding, so we are staying back for the wedding, which will be on June the 6th. Since the drive is a LONG one, we have decided to cut the trip in half and stop off in Atlanta and visit with my family. My little brother will be flying down on June 8th to help me with the drive to Atlanta. We will be leaving early on June 9th. Phil is going to stay back and pack up the U haul and will more than likely leave on June the 11th or 12th. We will stay in Atlanta for the rest of the week and leave for Hot Springs on Sunday June 14th.

We are currently looking a house that is about 7 houses down from my sister :o) We sent in a deposit to put a hold on the house and later next week we will be signing a lease aggreement. We are VERY excited.

We are going to miss all of our friends in Virginia, but we will def come back to visit and hope to keep in contact with everyone.

This is a picture of the house that we plan on renting :o)

3 bedroom, 2 bath, BIG backyard, and 7 houses down from my sister :o) :o)
