Before we got there I'd checked out their prices online and it's EXPENSIVE, so I hadn't planned to join...Keyword being planned... Well, because it was their open house weekend, they were discounting their prices A LOT! I only had to pay the amount that he weighed for 4 weeks of classes! So, it ended up being only $21! Not too bad!
While we were there, AJ got to sit on a trampoline while I bounced on it, he got to crawl around after balls, went down the slide and got to sit in the bucket of balls. They also had us sit around in a BIG circle and sing songs while clapping, patting, and tapping our feet. The whole point of My Gym is for kids to work on their motor skills as well as learn to play with one another. He had a GREAT time today and I think he'll really enjoy going each week.

Then today, we went to the Denver Children's Museum- something I've been thinking about doing with AJ for a while now. I have been told that it's great for kids any age, but I really wasn't so sure. Well, they were right! The museum has TONS to do for kids of ALL ages! They have a HUGE section for kids AJ's age (newborn - 4 years old actually) where they can play with toys, read books, climb over all kinds of neat surfaces, run around, climb over bridges, through tunnels and so much more! I do think that AJ will have even more fun once he's fully crawling and even more so when he's walking, but I will definitely go back soon! Today he enjoyed laying on these VERY soft pillows and playing with the mobiles and also army crawling all over looking for toys. Here are a few pictures:

Mandy and I had some girl time and went shopping for a few hours and got much needed pedicures too! We also went for a nice run on Sunday morning- even tho it was 34 degrees outside! BURR! I think we just knew that we'd be eating some really bad food later in the day for Super Bowl so that encouraged us to do it.
AJ and I have also been keeping very busy with MOMS Club. We've met some really great moms and kids and AJ is just so awesome at playing. He loves to sit and watch and he's such a tough boy that when other kids accidentally kick him or roll onto him, he doesn't seem to care; he just keeps chewing on whatever he has in his mouth :)
Today we had a fun play date and tomorrow we're going to lunch with some friends. Then later this week we're going to hit the pool. Yes, I know that I keep us very busy, but on the days that we don't get out, I can tell we're both a little bored and on edge.
I probably shouldn't say this for fear of jinxing myself, but sleeping has gotten a little better. AJ has been staying up a little longer lately- till about 7 or 7:30 and he wakes up typically 2 times each night which I can handle at this point. It's certainly better than 4 or 5 times as it was for WAY too long. He will usually sleep until about 6:45 or 7am too.
The car seat isn't the WORST thing in the world either- it's amazing what growing up will do! The only time AJ hates his car seat is when I've had to take him in and out over and over again- and I don't do that too much. If I have to run a bunch of quick errands, I just do it when Jason is home. Otherwise, AJ can look out the window, play with his toys or sleep.
