Atticus on the last packing day. On the first packing day he didn't nap until lunch.
What our living room looked like for a couple of days. Who needs toys when you have boxes.
Notice his hands and feet..he loved the freedom of being in and out all day.
Pictures from 12/28/05 Aiden went out and Atticus wanted to as well. He makes a beeline for the door when it opens.
I don't let him out often as he gets so dirty crawling around. At least now he walks along the walls and such.
Aiden is up in the window to see the kitty. Atticus is so happy to be out, notice the leaves behind him.
Trying to get out Hey no booty shots!!

Aiden made it his 4th birthday!!!! Oh and you can see that he doesn't believe 4 should be done with one hand.
Well I wish I had been more with it and I would have more pics of AJ this week. It has been Spirt week at ISM
and he has dressed up each day. First was celebrity, crazy day( the bus driver laughed when they saw him),
baby day, today is old school and then tomorrow is school colors. That jacket is mine by the way, AJ said I used
to have style and that I am a great mom for letting him wear it.
