My Little Scholar!

Just kidding... but these are some cute pictures! I found Aidan had pulled a book off of his shelf and was "reading" it! It was a "big boy" paper book and he didn't even attempt to rip the pages! He simply turned them and looked at them! YAY!

My Naked Boy

So, my mom got some super cute pictures of Aidan on his birthday. What is it about babies and being naked that makes everything so fun? No sooner did he realize I didn't have a diaper ready for him after cleaning off after cake.. he was gone! (excuse the frontal nudity... but he is too darn cute playing with his toys naked!)

Chuck E Cheese

Aidan and I took our first trip to Chuck E Cheese yesterday. He enjoyed himself immensely. I enjoyed that he is not old enough to care about actually putting tokens in the games and rides which means we enjoyed Chuck E Cheese for FREE! We didn't stay too long since it was nap time. I did however get some super cute pictures!

Our Little Computer Enthusiast

Aidan is absolutely fascinated by our computer! Today he was actually trying to use the keyboard!

More Presents

This is the cutest Little turtle from Grandpa Monte.. Aidan LOVES it!
Here is the slide from Mommy and Daddy!
G-ma got this adorable little boat that even floats in the bath tub. It is his first Little People set, we can't wait to get another one! Mommy loves that it's his first "Lego" set!
Aidan also got this picnic table from Grandma Jackie! The top is lowered right now since Aidan isn't quite big enough to sit on the benches. He loves to play with his new toys on it though!
This is another present from Mommy and Daddy. Although I think Uncle Casey enjoyed playing with it more then Aidan!

Aidan's New ATV!

Aidan loves his new Kawasaki ATV from Aunt Sheesha (Lisa). He wouldn't let me take him off of it this morning. It makes some neat noises... and some not-so-neat, rather more obnoxious ones. HAHA! We still love Aunt Lisa though!

Cake Time!

Sorry about the blurry pictures, it's time for a new camera!

One Year Ago Today...

At 9:03 AM a little baby boy was born! He weighed 7 pounds and 6 oz and was 20 inches long. We were very proud parents! Well, today that little boy is 1! I am amazed with how much he has grown and changed in this last year... he is on his way to being a big boy! Here's a look at Aidan 1 year ago today!

In to Everything

So, we have brought in our old TV stand to use temporarily as a computer desk, now that we have a desktop. It has these little doors and Aidan LOVES to crawl in there. I got one good picture today but another fairly cute one. Enjoy!

Well, with all the computer issues we had, I am just now uploading some pictures from the last few weeks. Here's a few from when he was sick... he was such a tired little boy!

Our ER Visit

Let me start this off with, I thought I was prepared for motherhood and would never be a mother who was constantly worried about the little things. Well, I am. I swear that I have called and spoke with the nurse at his peds office 25 times since he was born! UGH! She constantly reassures me that she would prefer to have me asking a bunch of questions or bringing him in to be checked out then to NOT do it and him come down with something that turns worse from it not being treated.

Anyways, Aidan had a bottle before bed last night and slept the WHOLE night! YAY! Well, he woke up and had a bottle, took a nap and then we were leaving for some errands. Well, he was super crabby. I tried giving him some motrin and after only half of his dose he gags and then pukes ALL over himself and my carpet! So, we change his clothes, wipe up the carpet and ditch the motrin. 30 minutes later we are in the car and once again.. he starts puking! UGH! So, we pull over and wipe him up (I need to keep a set of clean clothes in the car). About an hour goes by and we are at Other Mother's and he is CRABBY! I make him a bottle and my sister is holding him feeding it to him. 2 1/2 ounces later and he starts puking all over himself, my sister and the floor! Well, I rush outside so he is no longer puking on the floor. Also, I bought him some new jammies and we hit the road. He gets home, takes a nap and wakes up. I gave him a 4 ounce bottle of WATER (my son doesn't really drink juice and I figured water would be easier on his stomach). Well, up came the water. I have to throw in there, this is not just a little puke. Everytime he pukes EVERYTHING comes up, his whole little body wretches and it comes out his nose... my poor baby.

So, Anthony suggests I take his temp and call the doctor. 100.5... not bad. The nurse says I should bring him into the ER so they can get him on some IV fluids if needed. Well, we trek down to Sacred Heart (we've been there once before and I LOVE their peds ER). It most certainly was not busy the first time we went. Well, we arrived at 8 and were taken back to the PEDS waiting room..... it was PACKED!

Aidan was super crabby, after all, he hadn't kept anything is his stomach all day and it was his bedtime. Well, he wanted a bottle. I figured if he wants it, I will give it to him. He vomits all over the floor. HAHA! It was a little amusing to see the face on the lady next to me. I knew he was going to vomit, I just have a hard time telling my 11 month old sick son that he can't have his bottle! Anthony goes to get a "puke" bowl and the lady at the counter says "well, if you didn't feed him, he wouldn't puke". Really? Thanks Einstine! I'm not telling my hungry, tired, sick baby that he can't eat because she doesn't want to clean the puke up! So, they take us into triage and give him a little "magic" pill. She said after 20 minutes we could try giving him some pedialite. We got into our room at 10!!! By 10:30 the actual doctor was seeing us. He said just keep giving him the pedialite and if he continues to keep down a sufficient amount of fluids, he will send us home.. no IV needed! YAY!

There was a catch.... Aidan does NOT like pedialite. GO figure. The nurse kept saying I couldn't give him formula because it was too hard on his tummy. I finally got her to ask the doctor and he said fluids are fluids, if he takes it and keeps it down, fine. 5 ounces later, no puking and were released with 24 hrs worth of doses of that "magic" pill. I totally forgot what it is called but the doctor said it works great. He also proceeded to tell me that 30 pills costs about $750!!!! Most insurances don't cover it, which is why they give them to you at the ER.

So, our little guy is in bed now. Poor baby didn't get to sleep until 11:45. I hope he continues to do well with these pills and hopefully no more puking!
