Aidan slept for 8 straight hours last night! I was so excited! Before last night, we had a run of 6 hours, but never 8! He took a bath, had a bottle and went straight to bed. Here's a picture of his crazy hair after his bath. Last night was so nice. However, I am so accustomed to waking up at night I woke twice. Anthony thinks he will keep it up but I am a little more skeptical. I think it was a fluke. I guess we will see if this keeps up!

All Boy

Anthony and I have started to notice that little Aidan Baidan is a ROUGH kid! He is constantly thrashing things around and hitting himself in the head. He is very rough. If he keeps this up, he certainly will be a typical little boy. He is also infatuated with Kitty, our new kitten. He just watches him jump around the house. He was able to get a good hold on him earlier and seemed to enjoy that. Kitty has also taken to sitting in our laps while we feed Aidan his bottles. It looks like they are going to be GREAT pals!

Look what I did!

There seem to be new things happening with Aidan everyday. I had him in his jumperoo for a little while so I could use the computer and I turned around to find that he had partially taken his shirt off! This is a first for him... he has never tried to undress himself before. We will see if he tried again, then i will know if it was done on purpose or if he didn't know what he was doing. This leaves me dreading the time later down the road when he learns to remove all of his clothes and his diaper!!! I've heard stories about moms who duct tape their kiddos diapers on!!! AAHHHH!

Sitting Up

We are working on sitting up with little Aidan. His legs are so strong that he pushes himself over backwards constantly. He's almost there though. As long as we put a toy in front of him he's happy and will stay sitting for a few minutes. Our little guy is growin up so fast! Here is a picture I took a few minutes ago... he loves the piano Tracy gave him! Messy house but happy baby, I think that's a fair trade!

Tonight Anthony and I were singing Aidan a happy half birthday and as we got to the last verse he got that big pouty lip and looked like he was going to cry. It was the cutest thing ever. I mean, here we are singing a song and he gets upset! We tried again and as soon as we started he did it again. I went and grabbed the camera to snap a photo but by that time he was smiling.... of course!


I am so happy to let everyone know Aidan finally goes to sleep on his own! Well, just about. Since he was three weeks old I have been swaddling him and rocking him to sleep. For about 5 days now I have simply set him in his swing and he has fallen asleep!!! YAY! I am so excited. Now that he has learned to go to sleep without Mommy and without being swaddled our next step will be to move him back to his crib. One step at a time! It is so nice to not spend most of my day swaddling him and rocking him to sleep!!!

Oh my goodness, time is flying! Aidan is going to be 6 months old on Monday. Let me do the math for you, that's half a year old! He is getting so big. He just had his shots last week. He is a whopping 17 pounds and 26 inches long. I can't wait for those teeth to come through. He is quite the drooler. Crawling is right around the corner too! He rolls all over the place, this is his prefered mode of transportation. He scoot too. He pulls his legs up underneath him but not his arms yet. He also just figured out how to use his arms to push backwards!

Our little man is growing up so fast!
