4 Months

Aiden Cole is 4 Months Old!!!

It just doesn't seem right............seems time is flying by so fast. He is such a mild tempered baby. He laughs , he chats with us, he watches his brother so intensely, he is just about ready to roll over, he wants to sit up all the time.

He also loves his hands so much at the moment. Eating them constantly and drooling everywhere. Must be preparing for the fun times of teething! He also tends to scratch his face even with his nails clipped.

Oh my...........I know, HANDSOME!!! Watch out P Diddy! ......................Aiden was baptized on Sunday Dec. 7, 2008. I really thought he would be ok when it came time for the water to be placed on his head. But, he SCREAMED! He loves to have a bath and the Pastor even said he warmed the water. I guess it just surprised him. He was so cute, smiling at everyone in church.

Here is Aiden's cake. Yes, I made it myself. I think it came out pretty good considering that I am not the perfect cake decorator.

All in all, it was a nice day shared with family and friends in church and home. Our home was filled with love!

1st Thanksgiving

Yes just like his brothers first Thanksgiving, Aiden just wanted to eat all day. Either that or he just used that as an excuse to be with Mommy all day. hahahaha....Besides that he was so good all day, he even lasted just about all the way through the yearly night time scratch fest!

3 Months Old!!

At 3 months old Aiden now laughs!! It is so cute. He also is trying really hard to pull himself up to sit. He grunts a bit while doing it too, you can tell he is working hard at it. He is a drooly baby at this point!! Change him and 5 minutes later he has soaked his shirt.............He really is such a joy. He doesn't cry much unless he has a need that hasn't been met. He sleeps pretty good. I think he may be ready for the crib!

Too much tummy time and he just conks out!!

oh................and yes, Aiden is losing his hair!!He may be bald by Christmas.

1st Halloween!

Aiden was the CUTEST bat ever this Halloween! He really didn't have any problem wearing the costume. He went trick or treating w/his brother and was very content in the stroller all bundled and along for the ride.

Sharing his 1st Halloween with his Big Brother! A couple of cool Ghouls!

Game Time!

Posing for pictures in Patriots gear.

2 Months Old

Yep, time flies!! Aiden is a weed! Growing so fast. He just had his 2 month appt. and he is now 14 lbs 3 oz. 23 inches long. He is starting to have a personality of his own. He smiles when you talk to him and even tries to get out a chuckle here and there. I love it when I am talking to him and he just stares and smiles at me. He really stares right into my eyes.

Peace out!!! I must have caught him at a good ti
me, he really does not like to get buckled into his car seat

Many Faces

Aiden makes so many different faces now. He is smiling regularly. He even seems to get excited. When talking to him he starts to smile and coo and wave his arms and kick his legs all over the place. He is starting to want to party a little longer at night.....sometimes is stubborn and will fight the sleep. Usually though, he is a good sleeper!

1 Month

Wow!! I can't believe it has really been 1 month. I know I said that last time too but, this has REALLY gone by sooooooo fast! Aiden has changed so much already. He is definitely growing just fine. He is now at 11 lbs 6 oz. Yeah I know.. chubby! hahaha He eats like a chow hound. He has also grown another 3/4 in. He is starting to be alert more during the day and the little smiles are coming now ( 1st one 9/22).

Yes, we like to style his hair!!

He is still sleeping a lot during the day and the night is pretty good too! Just wakes to eat!

1st Bath

Aiden's 1st bath was on September 5, 2008. He was pretty good most of the way through it. Right up until the end when he just belted it out! Pretty sure he was all done with it at that point.

2 weeks!! 9/3/08

At 2 weeks old Aiden is alot different from Ethan was. HE SLEEPS!! .....and in the bassinet! He does have his times when he wants to stay awake after a late night feeding and just look around. He is growing like a weed! At his 2 week check up he was 8 lbs 9 oz and grew and inch in length.

Welcome Home!

We got to come home yesterday!! (Sunday Aug. 24) It was nice to be outside finally after being shacked up in the hospital for 4 days. Just to be home with the entire family ( Me, Daddy, Ethan and Aiden) and to relax was sooo nice.

Welcome Aiden!!

On Wednesday..August 20, 2008 at 9:42 a.m. Aiden Cole Vassar was born. He came a little earlier than was planned. We had a scheduled c-section for 12 p.m that day. Well, unexpectedly at 4:53 a.m that morning my water broke on it's own. So off we went to the hospital and the section was done at 9:00 instead. Everything went very smoothly and fast. Aiden weighed 7 pounds and 13 ounces. He was 19 1/2 inches long.

39 weeks!

Ok, so I am sitting here tonight doing this blog and I will be having this little boy tomorrow at 12 noon!! Yikes!! It's here already! A bit nervous( maybe more than a bit) and excited all at the same time. Here is a last photo before Aiden comes into the world.

37 weeks and 2 days

It's getti
ng close!! I am feeling a bit nervous with the day getting so close now. More or less about how Ethan i going to be while I am gone and when we bring his new brother home. I am sure he will do just fine but still , I have never been away from him so long. :( We are now just about ready for the arrival, I think!! hahaha

At this weeks appointment things went very well o
nce again. Aiden is beginning to behave during the NST's. Had another ultrasound and they estimated the weight at 6 lbs. 14 ozs. He is growing right on target. He has been giving me some big movements at night these days. Some of them actually feel like contractions when he kicks or moves. I have been having quite a bit of Braxton Hicks.

Nice Ride!!

Here is our new family vehicle!! Ethan thinks it is a big toy right now. This will take some getting used to but, I am sure it will be coming in real handy. I am very proud of this find. I happened to come across this on Craigslist. For the stroller and the infant seat.........$60!!! Seriously!! This goes for $250 in stores. It is practically brand new!

36 weeks and 4 days

I feel like I am growing by the minute! I probably am! Well at this weeks appt. Aiden finally cooperated and did what he was supposed to do in record time and I didn't have to redo the NS test. I also found out that I am 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced. So things are beginning to get prepared. Just really don't want to go early since Ethan's party is already in the works!! Hold Tight!!

35 and 35 weeks!

Just so happened I turned 35 as I went into my 35th week. Just a fun fact I guess................ Anyways, we had another ultrasound, which I am pretty sure I will be having weekly now until the birth. I am also having to do the non-stress tests every week too! Aiden has not been cooperating with those either. He tends to sleep during them and then I have to redo the test! So a simple appointment turns into almost 2 hours every time. He is gaining weight fast.........he is being estimated at this point at 6 lbs. 6 ozs. (Ethan was 6 lbs 5 ozs when he was born) We'll see how big he is...........they were off with Ethan by some. I think he is beginning to run out of room, his movements are slowing.....I don't mean he isn't moving, just not the kicks that were happening earlier.......movement is usually up into my ribs!! It is more of a squirming and hard rolling at this point.

Celebrating Aiden!

On July 13, 2008, some friends and family got together and had a small shower for me. We all went to Village Haven and had some dinner and enjoyed conversation. Of course we had some yummy cake!! ( that of which I am not supposed to have) And we got some very cute gifts............Aiden will be just as well dressed as Ethan!

Just shy of 34 weeks...

I took a couple pictures tonight, just thought I'd share. I feel like my belly is growing daily at this point. He is growing so fast. He rolls and kicks with such force now.

32 Weeks!

We had another ultrasound to measure the weight of Aiden as of now. He is right around 4 lbs. 14 oz. So he is definitely a bigger baby than Ethan was at this time. Believe me, I know..I feel bigger too!! I took a guess at the position he was in right now and I nailed it, he is head down. I can feel the pressure of his head on my bladder ...... ALL THE TIME!! We also got a date of delivery, we are pretty sure this little boy will enter the world on August 20, 2008. Yes............that is the day after Ethan's birthday!! So we really are having them 2 years apart for sure. ( oh yeah , don't mind the name on the pics. , she screwed up my name on them)
Nice Nose Shot!!
He is still a BOY!! Twig and Berries for sure......................
