We have had a week of "firsts" ....

* Tuesday Aiden actually laughed while I was talking to him! It was so sweet. I am loving that he is interacting more and engaging in "conversation".

* Wednesday he rolled over from his tummy to his back (and I missed it!). I laid him on his play mat and then left the room to go to the bathroom. When I came back to the living room he was on his back just looking around. He hasn't done it since, but nevertheless I am still careful about where I lay him!

* Thursday was his first time with a baby-sitter other than family. My good friend Lesley came and stayed with him while I went to the dentist. She said he did great. This is encouraging because he loves being with his mama and sometimes has trouble being with other people. He is going to Bible class now at church and is doing pretty good with that too.

Aiden's 3 month pictures are now on our Flickr site! Enjoy!

Great-Grandparents and More

How busy we've been around here lately. Fourth of July weekend we went to Hot Springs for my mom's birthday. Aiden did great on his first road trip and slept nearly the whole way there and the whole way home. Monty had some vacation days to use so he was able to take off Friday through Tuesday! It's nice to have some days at home together.

Aiden is becoming more and more fun each day. His new favorite things to do are watch his mobile,
listen to books and look at the pictures,
and watch his musical glow worm.

My Pappaw had a great time with Aiden!

Monty's grandparents came to visit last weekend. Aiden had a good time meeting Pops and Freda for the first time. Unfortunately I was in a wedding the same weekend so our time with them was limited. Hopefully we will get to see them when we go to Alabama in September.

Two Months Old

I can't believe Aiden is already two months old. Time is flying! He went for his two month check-up today. He did real good with his shots. He cried for only a second and then came home, ate, and went to sleep. Hopefully he'll have a good day today and won't be too fussy.

Here are his stats:
Weight: 14 pounds 1 ounce (93rd percentile)
Height: 24.25 inches (83rd percentile)

This is a random picture of him sleeping. He looked so cute when I got him up this morning! We are using his pack-n-play this week so he will be used to it when we go to Hot Springs tomorrow.
