My BIG Boy!

So, it's been forever since I updated our blog!

Little Aidan started taking his first steps on Wednesday night! We are so darn excited. It seems though that Anthony gets hung up on these things. He wants him to do things right now! LOL! It was no help when he told his mom Wednesday night that he took his first steps and she told him that he would be walking the next day. Well, go figure, he wasn't walking the next day. Anthony wanted to know what was wrong since he wasn't walking yet. UGH! He will walk when he is ready. The first steps are only that... it will be a little while or so before he is steady enough on his feet to walk confidently, even then, most babies prefer crawling because it is faster!


He is just too darn cute though when he takes those steps.... he looks for me as if to say" Mom, do you see me? Are you watching?"

I wouldn't trade these moments for any others in the world! He is so full of energy and is Mister Personality right now! I love that he comes to find me for a reassurance when we are playing outside and that he looks for my approval when he is doing something new. This bond that seems to grow stronger everyday really is overwhelming for me. I cannot express the feelings I have a as a mother while watching him learn new things! Even if this means waking up 6 times a night right now!

He also is truly enjoying playing outside! He can spend hours playing in the dirt or picking dandelions! If we are inside, he spends most of his time standing at the window so he can see outside.. ah, the joys of being one! I made sure to add a couple pictures of him outside... ENJOY!

Copy Cat

Wow, it has been awhile since I posted!

Aidan has started copying everything we do, it is rather cute. On his list... he holds the phone to his ear, he points the remote at the TV, he spits (when we sneeze!), he attempts to put my sunglasses on and lastly, he combs his own hair! I find it adorable when he tries so hard to immitate the things we do!

Aidan also has a new word! He says "Boo" when we play peek-a-boo! The running total is 3 words! We have "Ni Ni" for ni-night, "ba" for ball, and now "boo" for peek-a-boo! YAY!

Aidan also now has 6 teeth and is working on two more. Once those come in, he will have all 4 front teeth on both the top and bottom! It is so cute to hear his using his teeth to bite pieces off his animal crackers. Yeah, I'm weird, I know. It is just so cute to hear that big crunch come from his little teeth!

Last of all, Aidan has been "free standing". Most of the time, he doesn't realize he isn't holding on to things anymore and when he does, he falls. However, today my little man was on his hands and knees then stood up with his hands on the floor... then stood all the way up! All by himself! No prompting, no support (other then the floor). I am SO excited!!!!! My little guy is getting SO big! It won't be soon and he'll be walking! I am looking forward to him being able to walk as the weather gets warmer. That way, when we spend a lot of time outside he won't be crawling all over the place, rather walking.

Alright, there is all of my updates on Aidan... for now. I'll post some pictures later!
