Too cute!

Aidan has mastered pulling himself up now. He pulls himself up on everything! I was standing up next to the dining table and he pulled himself right up on my leg! I think he might also be getting close to free standing. This evening he has started to push himself off the couch and bending over to reach the ground rather then push back and fall on his butt. He is cruising all over the place too! From one end of the couch to the other! Our little boy is getting so big! He also plays patti-cake now. As soon as I start to sing it he starts clapping. I am a very proud Mommy!

Aidan is just a little champ at pulling himself up! Since yesterday he is now able to quickly pull himself to his feet. Today he also walked all the way around his Leap Frog table. It was SO cute! Anthony is so proud of him. Not to say I'm not, Anthony is just ecstatic to see Aidan doing "big boy" things. I think part of this come from seeing little ones Aidan's age at the mall play area the other day who were very skilled at pulling themselves up, crawling and even one walking. Our little boy is getting SO big!

OMGoodness! Aidan is going to be 1 in a couple of months! This means time to start thinking about a birthday party! I realized we don't have many friends as a family (at least not any with kids!) so it will be a small party. Anthony's mom should be up here and I am going to try and plan it for when my mom is in town as well. Maybe Aidan will make himself a little friend in M&M before his birthday. Although, I guess he can't really make friends if I don't take him out! I am getting excited thinking about his first birthday!

On another note, Aidan has chewed on our cord for the camera and at the moment I can't upload pictures!!!! UGH! I need to buy a new cord. He also started playing patti-cake with me! I have played with him for awhile and tpday when I started singing he started clapping! YAY!

Spaghetti and a Bath!

Aidan had his first dinner of spaghetti tonight! It was messy and fun! He enjoyed it and his bath afterwards! He had a cup in his bath with him and picked it up and startted drinking from it, it was too cute! He knew exactly what he was doing. He also has started splashing. Here are some fun pictures from his first spaghetti dinner to bath! I also added a little video. No sound, I did it with my camera since I couldn't leave to get the video camera! Enjoy!

A day in the life of Aidan

Aidan was a busy bee today. We found some sippy cups that Aidan will actually drink from (thanks for the suggestion of awitching cups Kim). He loves them. We also switched off of that icky smelling EXPENSIVE formula. Aidan has been using Similac Allimentum since he was about 1 1/2 months old. $25 a can!!! Most formula runs at about $13 a can. We were given the "okay" from his pediatrician to try and make the switch to Similac Sensitive. So far, two bottles down and no vomit! YAY! Here's a few photos from today!

Aidan's new "thing" is trying to stand up, well, kind of.

He also has figured out that he can crawl into his room and play with the door stopper that makes the "boing" noise. He also likes to play hide-and-seek or peek-a-boo when he's in there and shuts the door on you.

Aidan Baidan had such a long day he actually fell asleep on me! His eyes are open in this picture, the flash woke him up! What a mean mommy!

Wordless Wednesday

Serenity Prayer

For the last couple of minutes, I have been reciting the serenity prayer. I am going to lose my mind. Aidan has now learned how to throw fits. He throws a fit when you tell him no, he throws a fit when it's nap time, he throws a fit when you take something away or remove him from an activity. UGH! Just now he was half way through with his bottle and started shaking it, sending formula flying. I told him no, we don't shake our bottle. He looked at me and just started screaming and dropped his bottle. UGH!

New Video

I just got my cord that connects my actual video camera to my computer! This means video with sound now! YAY! Here is a better version of Aidan clapping, you can hear how excited he gets.
