shrimp cocktails

we went out to dinner last night with 2 other couples and their kids that we haven't seen in MONTHS!!! it was absolutely fabulous and we need to do it more often. seriously it's probably been over 4 months. we met up at TGIFridays ... and i forgot my camera on my coffee table. so i have no pictures as proof.
robby's absolute favorite appetizer is shrimp cocktail. we were surprised when the one we ordered came out and had 12 shrimp on it. holy moley! aidan started pointing at it and whining. so naturally robby ripped off a bit of one and put it in aidan's mouth. he LOVED it. he smiled and did a little wiggle dance in his high chair. the next bite robby fed him had cocktail sauce on it which he immediately spat back out! then the next bite (without sauce) was handed to aidan. he slowly put it to his mouth while shaking his head (no doubt hoping that horrid sauce wouldn't ruin the bite). after that it was full speed ahead, while smiling and wiggling the whole time. it was SOOOOO cute. i wish i had my camera, i would have taken a video!!! each of us ate 4 shrimp each. aidan LOVED them, he is just like his daddy! who would have guessed?

my friend Kerstin tagged me with a book tag. (ok, not really but i'm doing it anyways!)
To complete this tag you must:
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3.Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5.Tag 5 people
"He seemed a little old to be hanging out with us."
boring sentance when taken out of context, but this is actually an amzing part of the story!!! i was hoping it would be a good juicy one, but no. this is my newest obsession. I just finished it on sunday, and hopefully book 2 and 3 will arrive as promised in the mail tomorrow (i'm waiting on the edge of my seat!!) and i already pre-ordered book 4! sheesh. so far i'm totally loving this series. if any of you wanna borrow it, let me know (although nicole has dibbs ... she gets it saturday when i see her next). or go buy a copy yourself, it's excellent and you wont regret it! want to learn more about this book, check it out!!
now I tag: nicole, becca, jen, tricia and rachel -- and anyone else who wants to play!! huzzah!

aidan thinks he's a politician

holy moley, aidan started doing this about a month ago and i think it's hillarious! when he talks he moves his hand up and down. it reminds me of politicians speaking. he does it all the time and it totally cracks us up. unfortunately, he didn't feel like doing it for very long for the camera. but you get the idea!

say "please"

i keep telling people that aidan says please, he recently started saying it a LOT more. ok, and he doesn't really say "please" its more of spitting at me with a p sound at the beginning! either way it's pretty dang cute! enjoy aidan saying "please"!!!
now if only i could get a video of him saying "dangit". it's actually one of the words that you can understand -- and he uses it correctly. on easter after the kids were filthy from digging in the dirt we threw all three of them in the bath. while they were in there aidan stood up and slipped and fell down, his response? "dangit!" nicole and i were just cracking up. she tried getting him to say it again and catching it on video, but instead he decided to do some cruder things that we will not show on a family blog!

aidan's new trick

aidan has been flirting with this trick for awhile, going over and pulling on the handle, but on monday (3/31/08) he finally got it. look at his smile, he thinks he's being sneaky (aidan, it's not sneaky if mom's taking pictures of it!!)

duper duper 'doo

i've been in a hair funk lately, and needing something new. rachel to the rescue!!! (isn't she just so dang cute??) my sister has been in town the past week and we've been hanging everyday. on thursday (3/27/08) we were at my mom's (like we were all week) and our friend rachel wanted to hang with us. she is a hairdresser so you can just imagine what three crazy preggo girls do too late at night!!we decided to add a little color, yeah for bleach streaks!! don't i look pretty?hmmm, wouldn't i look great with blue hair?
here i am getting all blown out (no pictures of the actual cutting)
here i am, all styled and pretty!! (sorry about my blotchy skin, when i washed my hair in the sink i ended up washing my face as well, so no more makeup!!)
i LOVE the back, its short enough i can spike it again, huzzah!!!thanks rachel! you're the best!!! she also cut and colored nicole's hair, but you'll have to check her blog for pictures! our 'doos are similar, but mine is shorter!!

oh, and my blog title comes from nicole's little boy adam, he doesn't say "super duper" just "duper duper' which CRACKS me up!!
