His father's son

Aiden continues to grow and change on a daily basis leaving me with mixed emotions of excitement in what is next to come and sadness of what has already passed. This passed week he realized just how strong his vocal cords can be. Our house is now filled with the sweet sounds of baby squeals, but at times baby screams. On a regular basis Aiden is a happy baby and very content however there are times when sweet Aiden does not get his way and you would think that the world is coming to a crashing end. It gives me glimpses of what the toddler years are going to be like with him. I have already begun praying for patience during these times.

Aiden is working on the crawling thing but has yet to get that left leg going. This is something that I am currently obsessed over and I know before I now it he will be everywhere into everything, so I am trying not to worry about it.

We recently had our first teething cookie and for a first time mom this was a very nerve racking experience. The two teeth that Aiden continues to sport are his secret weapon. The little dude can bite like you would not believe. So instead of kind of sucking on the little dissolving cookie, our Aiden bites chunks off. This results in a gagging child, a mommy with her finger in the back of a throat and cookie and slobber everywhere. We have tried this twice and are presently putting the cookie thing on hold.

He changes everyday and we are having so much fun with him!
