Aidan's 3 months old!

Happy 3 month birthday Aidan! Time has just flown by since you were born. Three months ago, your Daddy and I were so nervous when we found out that they needed to deliver you two weeks early. The first time we saw you, we both agreed that we thought you were perfect. It’s kind of hard to believe that we could think you could get any more “perfect” but three months later, you’re even more adorable. Your smile is so beautiful that Daddy and I never tire of making funny sounds and doing such weird things to get you to smile again and again and again! We love you.

Cousin Brandon is 8 months old!

Hey Cousin! I heard you turned 8 months old today? Cool! I can't wait for you to talk and tell me how baby food tastes. I just get milk right now. When Mommy and Daddy eat dinner, they either put me in my swing or on the floor, they think I'm listening to that caterpillar counting numbers and playing music but really I'm listening to their conversations which is how I know that you're 8 months old today. I'll see you soon cuz.....tell Auntie and Uncle I love them. I have to go, Mommy keeps ssshing me, I guess she wants me to go to sleep or something.

Mommy went back to work!

Today was my first day away from Mommy. I spent the entire day at Grandma and Grampy’s. They are my new baby sitters while Mommy works. She started working two weeks ago but I got to stay home with her. It wasn’t that easy for her to work and take care of me at the same time but she loved having me at home with her. It’s hard to believe Mommy has been off of work for three months tomorrow! Mommy was so sad to leave me today, she said how lucky I am to have Grandma to take care of me because she hugs and loves me all day, just like Mommy does. I guess I’m so cute and loveable that Mommy missed me so much, she came and saw me at lunch! Thank you Grandma and Grampy for watching me, and taking such good care of me.

Happy 2009!


Aidan would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! He is very lucky to have wonderful family and friends that love him so much. He gets bigger and cuter everyday. He changes so fast that it's difficult for his mommy to keep up with his baby book, much less his blog but she'll keep trying. He is one week shy of being three months old. He is smiling a lot this week. Just tonight, he smiled when Grampy came over for dinner. He is able to keep his hands in his mouth which he likes much better than a pacifier.
His Mommy would like to say that even in one of the worse economic environments we've had, 2008 was the best year ever! It was so special to watch her nephew Brandon being born. Brandon is the most amazing, smart, adorable baby who I love so much. Five months and one day later, I was blessed to see what it feels like to be a mom. It's the most amazing feeling to hold the baby you've always wanted for the first time. To hear him cry for the first time was a beautiful sound. I can't honestly say that the crying is still beautiful but Aidan is so wonderful and does something everyday to make me remember how truly lucky I am to be his mom. His Mommy and Daddy light up, no matter what is going on in their lives, every single time he shows us that awesome smile of his. 2009 is going to be so much fun watching Aidan and Brandon grow and do so many new things!

Aidan found his hand!!

Aidan loves to eat his hand now. He does this before and after he eats. No he isn't teething. We think he does it to soothe himself. Boy it sure is cute too....

Now this is what makes us melt!!

When babies smile, they take away all the stress. Aidan has been smiling a lot more these days. Its not just gas anymore. Actually, he doesn't really smile when he has gas anymore. He just cries... HA!!

How cute is this??

I sure wish I could sit up by myself...

I need all the support I can get.
