11 Months Old!

Aiden is now just 1 month away from being 1!!! Yikes! He is now pulling himself to standing on everything! On Mommy, on the furniture, tried to get up on the stairs. Won't be long I guess................before we are chasing 2 little boys all over the place!( I will add a standing picture as soon as I capture it) He is a very vocal little boy. We sometimes have screaming matches at the dinner table. He now has 4 teeth, the bottom front and the top front..............he is moving more and more into table foods. It is a slow move as he tends to spit alot of it right back out unless it is snack food! He sure does love those mini fishies!

We have finally been able to get in the pool more, Aiden was a bit skeptical at first but, it has since warmed up and he loves to go in his floating car!

Aiden has a new favorite game........................PEEK-A-BOO!

10 Months Old!!

So 10 months have now passed. Aiden is doing so many new things daily it seems. Yes, he is now crawling all over the place. He began to crawl on June 15, 2009. He is super fast too. He does the "down on one knee and push with one leg up "crawl. As soon as he sees something he wants he is off! He has become quite the copy cat. He tries, and usually succeeds to copy most things we do. He has learned to tackle his brother. He can sing "na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey good bye"! well at least the "N" sound.

Here Comes Trouble!

Just the other day Aiden was eyeing something for a while and I guess was just waitng for the perfect opportunity to make his move. Well, he got that chance as I left the room for a quick minute. He managed to get himself across the room over to where Ethan was eating his breakfast and SNATCH! he ripped it right from under Ethan's nose! I came back into the room to find Ethan crying because Aiden had got his pop tart and his yogurt. He spilled the yogurt all over and was eating it!

Davis's Farmland

On Memorial Day we took a trip to Davis's Farmland. It was a warm and perfect day! They were having their annual Construction Expo. with tractors.

Aiden enjoyed himself mostly from his stroller but was able to participate in quite a few things. He loved all the animals and watching his brother feed them. He also, enjoyed the spray grounds there.

I would say he had some fun, he was pooped before we left!

9 Months Old!

Aiden has such a personality at 9 Months old! He copies so many things, it is just so funny. Everything goes right in his mouth no matter what it is. He is a professional roller. He rolls from one end of the room to the other, he gets his eyes set on something and goes right for it. Usually it is one of Ethan's toys!

His mouth has become a holder for many things!

First Teeth!

Aidens 1st teeth popped through today!! He has been drooling something fierce and chomping on his water fish and other toys like crazy lately. They were not there yesterday when I felt and today while eating some corn puffs I had my finger in his mouth and thought it was his snack. I double checked and low and behold, it was his bottom teeth!

8 Months Old!

Seems we are getting closer and closer to that 1 year mark. That's because WE ARE! Aiden has such a personality now. He is grabbing and swiping at everything in sight. He loves to be outside going for a walk. He is so content. He is a happy baby, always smiling or acting shy towards people. When I put him in the mirror to look at himself..........he pulls the shy act on himself. It is so cute! He is pulling up on his knees and rolling to get what he wants. He has tried to pull up on one of Ethan's toys to try to stand. Crawling is sure to be very soon.
He so loves his Big Brother. They look like Best Buds!

1st Easter

On the night before Easter we all colored eggs. Aiden.....................wanted to eat them! We had to keep the dye away from him because he is fast as lightning. As soon as something is in his line of fire........he grabs for it!

The Easter Bunny was pretty good to Aiden. He got a bunny some chicks some summer clothes and more toys!

Oh and yes, let's not forget his Busy Ball Popper. He wanted to pick the whole thing up and eat it.

The rest of the day was spent going to church, visiting family and having a nice easter dinner.

The Big Tub

Aiden has outgrown his baby tub. Well, not that he doesn't fit but, he causes a tidal wave to go out onto the floor. As soon as we put him onto the big tub with Ethan he thought it was fantastic. He started splashing and he got all excited. So now with the both of them in the tub , giving the bath, you get extra soaked!

7 Months Old!

Another month has gone by and so many things have changed. Aiden is eating all his meals(well, most of the time..he does refuse lately) He likes applesauce, bananas, peaches and pears. He also like carrots and peas! He has recently refused the rice cereal and only eats oatmeal. He is getting very vocal. He will say "mamamamamamama" and lay on the floor and yell pretty loudly for attention. He is quite the little imitator now...he really watches what everyone does intently and will try it himself. He is also getting to be rough with pinching my neck and pulling hair!! He absolutely LOVES the cat! He gets so excited when Noah enters the room, he will slap his hands up and down on his lap and yell or laugh. It is so cute!

Aiden loves to play with all of his
toys. He also loves to get his hands on his brothers toys. Ethan is not very fond of that right now. But they sure are very fond of each other!

This what happens when I turn my head for a second! Aiden got a hold of his peaches and thought he was going to guzzle them from the container. Needless to say, it was a big MESS!

It's Cold Outside

This winter has been so cold, we have not been able to spend a lot of time outside. But when we do, Aiden seems to enjoy it. Not sure he really enjoys the snow but likes to look from afar.

6 Months Old!!!

I really can not believe it has been 1/2 a year already!! Aiden is flourishing and growing so fast. He is now eating cereal in the morning and just now starting a bit at lunch. He still does not like to be on his tummy. As soon as you put him there he rolls right over and thinks it's funny. If he does stay on his belly for any length of time he can almost get up on his knees, he is trying! He is just about sitting unsupported. He is just so different than his big brother. He will entertain himself for a longer period of time. He loves his hands and is eating his feet. He loves to be undressed! It's like he turns into a wild child as soon as he is free of clothes. He is yelling and laughing so much. He loves Ethan, he follows his every move and gets excited to see him. So Cute!!

Happy 1st Valentine's Day!

Aiden's 1St Valentine's was pretty low key. We just spent the day at home hanging out. He played with Ethan. Had a matching outfit to his brother! Then we went out to dinner...................

Aiden was really into his card! More like trying to eat it!!

First Foods

Aiden started to have a little bit of cereal in the morning. He really is doing such a good job with it. He takes about 5-6 bites. This is just the start.

5 Months Old

Aiden is growing up so fast!! He is now just about 19 lbs!! Yes, he is a big boy................never say he is fat to me because he is not! He is so handsome..............He now grabs at all his toys, sucks on his fingers like crazy(I'm sure teeth are soon to be seen), he is learning to jump and he laughs a lot. He likes to watch his big brother play, he will stare at him, like he is learning the skill right then.

Look how big he is...sitting in his little seat!! He likes to swat at his toys from this point of view too. That way he can catch a peek at the TV at the same time.

He will sit in his high chair for a bit and play while I am making dinner or getting other things done.

1st Christmas

I know , he looks so excited for it to be Xmas Eve!! Actually he was a bit crabby that night and then slept for most of it.

Christmas morning he was just waiting to open his stocking...............well , for Ethan to open it for him.

And then he flipped one of his toys right onto his face......see he was excited!!

He was so pooped from all the excitement............probably from watching his brother rip into everything and everyones presents. His 1st Christmas was very nice. It was so fun to have Christmas w/2 kids..................our family of 4!
