Aiden has discovered how to roll over, and over and over. He is a very busy boy now. He rolls over and crawls backward around the room. He learned how to crawl backward a couple weeks ago but now that he can rollover by himself, he is all over the place. Today he is pretty crabby. I think he is really teething now cause he is in a very cranky mood and I haven’t been able to figure out why. It could also be that he is exhausted but I am guessing it is more due to teething. He is running a fever though so not sure what that means. I know my doctor said that running a fever isn’t a symptom of teething but lots of people think a low grade fever is a symptom so lets hope that is what it is. Right now we are watching a Baby Einstein CD that one of our friends made for us. it is about language and is in lots of different languages. He seems to be tolerating it but not sure if he is actually enjoying it or not. He isn’t screaming so that is improvement. Oh crap, its done. NOW WHAT. Gotta go..
I think Aiden does something new every single day now. 2 days ago, Tuesday I was sitting with him in the kiddy pool. I got him some new toys and as one of them drifted away from him he decided that he wanted to walk after it. Now when I say walk, I mean he took several steps. Of course being the mom that I am, I encouraged this by pushing the toy further and further away. I wanted to see if it was real or if I was going crazy again. Each time he took several steps trying to get the silly little toy. It was so cool to watch it finally click in his head how he can actually move his legs instead of trying to just move his upper body. I of course have to hold his hands still and probably will for a while but it is so cool to watch.
My MIL and FIL watched Aiden overnight last night and said that he rolled over by himself. He hasn’t done it by himself yet that I have seen but I’m not surprised at all. He has been trying for a week or so now to get his pacifier when it falls out of his mouth by moving his head instead of using his hands. He is so silly.
I had just given Aiden a bottle and we were sitting here listening to the Backyardigans songs on the computer. He was suffering from food coma as usually happens when he is very full and all the sudden I noticed he wasn’t dancing with me anymore. He fell asleep in my arms while I am swinging him around like a monkey. It almost made me cry. I know sounds weird but my hormones are still all out of whack so what can anyone expect from me. I wanted to keep holding him but decided he would probably sleep better if I put him in his crib. I would love to keep him this age forever. He is at the stage now that everything is amazing and he smiles at everything and everyone. I took him to my doc with me yesterday and you should of heard all the women in the office.
I’m going to go read while Aiden is asleep so gotta go. Jess
Aiden has been asleep for over 2 hours this afternoon. I just went and checked on him. I can’t help it, I get freaked out when I hear him scream, I get freaked out when he is silent. What can I say, I’m a crazy mom. He wasn’t taking naps for a while. I mean not for longer then 30 minutes at a time. It was horrible. I was ready to pull out all my hair. The sleeping thing has been going great at night though. He went to sleep last night without crying at all. It was wonderful. He hasn’t woken up the last couple of nights either so maybe this is the start of some good sleeping. Either that or he will do it for a week or so, just long enough for me to get used to it and then…wham…change to something completely different that makes all of us miserable for a few days until we figure out the pattern.
I’m very much looking forward to Steve’s 1st father’s day. I cant’ wait to give him his awesome present. Sorry I can’t tell you what it is, he reads this sometimes
I just got Aiden an Exersaucer last week. if you don’t know what it is, it is a stationary play seat that you sit a little one in. It has toys all around it and if it is low enough the baby can stand up in it. It is great for Aiden cause he loves to stand up so much that he can be entertained for a lot longer then any of his other toys. It has some great toys on it too. I actually took a whole bunch of pictures but I can’t ever remember how to upload them to flickr so I will have to ask Steve to remind me again. I also got him a walker for when he gets a little older. I don’t think he can use that yet but I haven’t’ tried yet either. Maybe I should.
It looks like we are going to get a new gas grill today or tomorrow too. We have had ours for over 5 years and we love it but it is broke right now. We were planning on just ordering the parts for it and fixing it but when I was looking through the ads in Sunday’s paper we found an amazing deal and are going to get a new one instead. Anyone want to buy a grill that doesn’t work and try and fix it?
