Comparison with My Boys

Aiden at 2 days.

Aiden at 10 months and 3 days :)

Pretty crazy!  And as cute as ever!

P.S. It's just about time for us to get Aiden a new car seat.  If anyone has car seat recommendations send them my way!  I guess for right now kids are supposed to be rear-facing until they're at least 1 so I guess we'll want a car seat that is convertible (it can be either rear or forward facing).

10 months

Aiden turned 10 months on Monday.  I went to get him out of his crib that morning and he had thrown up (first time it's happened).  I felt so bad, but he was his normal happy self :)

Here is what Aiden's been up to in the last month:
  • He is standing up on his own more and more and on Sunday he actually took his first step!  It was only 1 step, but we were so excited that we both saw it because Trent was certain he wouldn't be around when it happened.  I never thought I'd be excited for Aiden to start walking, but he's just so cute and timid about it.  I'm sure there will come a day when I wish he weren't walking :)  I'll definitely get video when he starts taking more steps.
  • He loves to run, aka crawl as fast as he can, away from us and have us chase him.
I'll have to get a better video :)

  • He is getting 2 more teeth (the 2 on either side of his top front teeth).  I feel like all of his teeth are coming in so fast!  Kind of sad because I feel like once they start getting teeth, they're really not babies anymore :(
  • He is learning how to play Catch.  He doesn't have much control over where the ball goes, but that makes it all the more cute :)
  • He discovered the toilet paper a few weeks ago and has unrolled it a few times. Pretty annoying..haha.  He's also flushed the toilet a few times. He hasn't really done either this week so hopefully it won't become too habitual.
  • He didn't used to mind the vacuum, but now it scares him.  He keeps a safe distance and watches my every move.
This time he was whimpering so I put him up on the couch and he didn't budge :)

  • He has really started to mimic us.

He often manages to catch the refrigerator door before it closes all the way...

...and usually pulls out the milk :)

Just sorting the laundry ;)

I had just finished making dinner at the stove..haha.

  • He consistently sleeps from about 9 at night until about 8 in the morning.
  • In the last week he has learned how to wave :)
  • Lately he likes to get into small spaces.  Maybe he likes it that we can't fit..haha

  • He is still a little daredevil.  Whenever we put him on our bed he insists on getting to the very edge of the bed and grabs for things on my nightstand (specifically his monitor or my Chapstick). Although the space between the bed and my nightstand seems small, it's big to Aiden and he makes us nervous every time does it. 
  • He loves to feed himself.  If he sees us eating something though, he wants what we have, even if he's eating the same thing.  For instance, he was eating these Kix from his tray, but when I got myself a bowl of Kix he had to have some of mine..haha.  Maybe he prefers them a little wet :)
  • He's kind of obsessed with my hot pink blow dryer ;)  He knows exactly where I keep it and pulls it out all the time.  There have been a few times when I'm not sure where he's gone off to and I'll just find him sitting with my blow dryer (unplugged of course) on the floor. 

I think that about sums it up!  Here are a few more pictures from the last month:

Daddy stuck Aiden in his toy box.  I don't think Aiden was amused..haha.

I thought it was funny that Aiden's diapers were almost as tall as him. Trent thought it was gross..haha.

Trent's makeshift baby-proofing so that Aiden would stop getting the little pebbles out of the fireplace.

My beauty boy ;)

I was cooking dinner the other night and heard some liquid swishing in the hallway.  I peeked around the corner worried Aiden had found some cleaning product, but he had just found Daddy's water bottle in his backpack.  Oh he loves Daddy's water bottle, much more than his sippy cups ;)

Love this picture - all of the colors and that Aiden's kneeling :)

Aiden's new jammies :)

I'll end with this final video - my happy boy :)

It is so fun to have a little buddy to run errands with.  Whenever we're getting ready to head out I tell Aiden, "We're going on an adventure" as I'm buckling him into his car seat :)

We went to Michael's the other day (I'm working on a project) and I saw a few different ladies pushing carts with the regular baby seat in the front, but I couldn't find them anywhere, so I resorted to one of the little craft carts. I was seriously laughing when I put Aiden in b/c he fit so perfectly!  I was a little worried he'd jump right out, but, as you can see in the picture, he held on to the front the entire time.  Love my cute boy!

Hope you are all having a happy weekend :)
