Aiden has been smiling for the past couple of weeks. It is so cute! Here are a few pictures (sorry that they are blurry...it is impossible to take a great picture of a baby while you are holding him!) and a movie. I am sad that he didn't give his best smiles because his best smiles are enormous and so precious! These will do, though! Tomorrow you can expect a blog about Halloween. yeah! Isn't he so cute? Or as Alora says, "Caauute!"

- Improve my relationship with my Savior and Father. I have done better though not as well as I would like. I have been much more diligent in working on my Personal Progress. I finished a project and 4 value experiences!!! I noticed a huge difference in my life when working on this. I encourage all sisters to do the same, whether in YW or not. Sister Dalton (the new general YW president) spoke at a fireside in our Stake a year ago and stated that Personal Progess is to be worked on over and over again throughout life.
- Work on scrapbooking each night when the kiddos are in bed to catch up. I started out diligently on this but as I expected, Aiden has halted progress. I will wait for him to start sleeping more regularly before picking this up again. I am almost finished with Grayson's first year, though!
- Clean something in my house each day. I actually have done moderately well here! I have a new schedule: Monday is laundry day, Tuesday is ironing, Wednesday is bathrooms, and Thursday is dusting/kitchen. I might miss a day here or there but I am happy that this schedule will keep my house in decent condition! If you visit, though, don't expect everything to be clean at once!!! :)
- Excercise for 20 minutes each day. I have not done well on this but am starting to do better. I was so big at the end of the pregnancy that walking up the stairs was difficult. After 3 1/2 weeks, I am starting to feel mostly normal again. I started working on the Wii fit two nights ago. I am excited to get rid of fat!!!
Here is one more goal that I am going to add to my list: a weekly program (inspired by my friend at I never grew up...see below) of helping the children learn about different topics. We will have a weekly number (math problem for Grayson), letter (for Alora), word (for Grayson), color, animal, musician, feeling, and artist that we will discuss. This is going to take a lot of effort and I am great at starting projects and then forgetting about them as I go on. This will be different!! I'll post more when I am ready to go!
