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!
