Happy Birthday Aaron! We did Aaron's party last night since he has Young Men's tonight. We went and got some helium balloons so we could tie them to his motorcycle for when he left work. We had hot wings for dinner with corn on the cob that tasted like water--gross! Then we made chocolate lava cakes--of course--Aaron's favorite! Arwen was quite concerned that he didn't have a big cake--just little baby cakes. By the end of dessert, we finally had her convinced that little cakes were okay. We finished off the evening by putting the kids to bed and starting season 2 of Lost. We didn't get to watch too much though, because Aaron had a work meeting he had to call into. Overall, I think it was a pretty fun party!

Squashy Joshy sure loves being outside. I don't think he'd cry at all if we left him outside all day! I am beginning to wonder about him--he gets these horrible crying fits and can cry for hours--he's pretty colicy. I have this medicine for him called Gripe Water. It has fennel and ginger and is supposed to help their tummies. It seems to help really well, I think. But it's strange, because I give it to him the minute I see that he's in pain and the minute it touches his tongue, he swallows it up like a little kid in a candy store and then is better. Has he gotten smart and just cries for his candy water, or does it really help immdediately? Maybe I should slip some sugar water into his medicine dropper once and see what happens. Anyways, he sure is a sweety!!
