Here is another site that Steve introduced me to. It is called Woot and although I have to admit that half the time I have no idea what the product is that they are selling, it is really cool. The site sells smaller quantities of things like the Roomba (that stupid vacuum that is supposed to know where the dirt is and guide itself). Once the item is gone, they move onto something else. Most of the stuff is technology oriented such as the item that is up right now which is Microsoft 2006 Streets and Trips.
Take a look and tell me what you think

Steve introduced me to this cool site called twitter. It is a site that you update periodically throughout the day with 140 characters or less about what is going on right at that moment. For example, I just posted something a few minutes ago that said, “Watching Aiden play on the floor while I scarf down my breakfast. Hopefully he will hold off on the screaming for a couple minutes”. You can let anyone you want view your entries and other people can also request to view it.
Very cool site so check it out if you get a chance. If you are interested in subscribing to mine, let me know and I will send you an invitation.

Aiden has started laughing over the last couple of weeks. It is the most wonderful sound I have ever heard. He is so ticklish and his laugh is contagious. I start giggling with him. He is so amazing. I think I have said that a million times since I had him. He brings me so much joy that I get all teary eyed just thinking about how wonderful he is – I know, I am still emotional. Not sure if that will ever go away.
We decided to stop swaddling Aiden as of last night. He woke up with the blankets wrapped around his head yesterday morning and Steve and I both said, ok we are done with that. Its not worth it. Now I just have to suffer without sleep for hopefully only a few days. Last night he went to bed at 10, woke up at 1, 3:30, 5 and decided it was time to get up for the day at 6. He is attempting to take a nap now but he is moving around a lot and seems to be in a really light sleep which is unusual for him. Most of the time he can sleep through anything. TV, phone, my loud typing, anything.
Oh no, I think he is awake already. Man I need a nap of my own so I better go.

Over Easter weekend, Carl went a little nuts with the digital camera and took about 500 photos, 200 of which had Aiden in them (I think another 100 were of a pepsi can he liked). I finally got around to organizing them into weekly sets, so you can click here to see them that way.

Aiden has his first ear infection. Poor little monster. He is feeling much better since being on antibiotics. He is on amoxicilion for 10 days or until it is gone. I felt so bad for him. He was miserable and I could tell something was wrong. I was hoping he was just teething. yes I know it is early but he had all the signs until he started running a fever. Apparently some doctors feel that running a fever is a sign of teething and some don’t. Mine doens’t so when I called on Wednesday mroning they told me to come right in. I love my doctors office. They are so great. They encourage me to call whenever I am concerned about anything. Being that he barely slept on Tuesday night and was crying and just plan cranky for a couple days.
It is so hard to know what a little baby needs. How do you know what is wrong with someone that can’t tell you anything. I saw him grab his ear at one point and thought, “I wonder if he could have an ear infection”. I strongly suggest that if you think anything is wrong with your baby you should take them in right away.

So lately when I have been out with Aiden people feel the need to ask me what his name is. Why? What does it matter to you? I mean I understand wanting to know the age – do the comparision, is my baby more advanced, cuter, smaller, etc. But the name? It actually makes me very nervous and uncomfortable. I don’t feel the need to tell people his name but I have yet to figure out a nice way to stop people from asking me because it is none of your business. I always feel pressure to tell them. Why? He is my baby and if I don’t want them to know anything about him then I shouldnt’ have to tell them. I know he is the most gorgeous baby ever so everyone is just fixated on him but come on. Stop asking me.
