Likes and Dislikes

Aiden likes . . .

* eating (but who doesn't?!?)
* being carried in the baby sling
* talking with mama
* listening to music while I am on the computer
* being swaddled tight to sleep
* sleeping late

Aiden dislikes . . .

* car rides
* baths
* being by himself

Overall, Aiden is on a great schedule and is pretty predictable. He is sleeping much better at night and is able to put himself to sleep. All I have to do is wrap him tight in his swaddle and he is out! He is asleep by 10 (usually) and will continue to sleep until about 10 the next morning (with a few feedings thrown in). We are enjoying our little man!

The Last Week

The last week has been a busy one! We have been able to get out more during the day which has been good for me! Aiden has been to Wal-Mart, Target, and the Associate Store - all very important places that he will learn to love as much as I do :). We went to church last night and then out to eat afterwards. It was so nice to be able to visit with friends! I was beginning to feel out of touch with the outside world.

Monty's parents and sister came for the weekend. Unfortunately Aiden had a very fussy two days and didn't seem to want anyone else but me. Hopefully the next visit they'll get to spend a little more time with him.

Aiden had his two week check-up on Friday. He weighed 9 pounds 10 ounces and was 22" long. He had gained 11 ounces and grown an inch since his 4 day old check-up. I think we're going to end up with a big boy!

At Home

We are all adjusting well to life at home. Aiden is doing a great job sleeping and eating and is getting into a somewhat regular schedule. He is letting us sleep at night for about three hours at a time so we are both staying pretty rested.

My grandparents came from Hot Springs yesterday to visit. Aiden slept the whole time and let them hug and love on him the whole time they were here.

I am slowly recovering but have had so much help from Mom and Monty!! Monty gets up with me at night while I feed Aiden since I can't get in and out of the rocker with him. He has been great to change diapers and do anything else I need him to do. He will be at home with me for another two weeks. Yeah for paternity leave! Mom has been cooking and cleaning and is enjoying being a grandma.

Preping for C Time.
So more naps and resting. Sitting between an 8.5/9 with one side being stubborn.
Ang and Aiden are still doing great.
Mr. Aiden is still deciding which way to face and is taking his time. Ang and I have taken quick naps to get some rest.

Ang and Aiden are doing great.

Catching up 8.5. Ang doing great.
Ang is doing good around 8:30 she got an epi and was around 5.5 at station 0.

She's taking a nap now.

Thank you all for your concerns.

About an hour ago Up to 3.5. Ang is being a trooper.

She got some of the hour long meds and are really helping with the Pitocin induced contractions.

She now sitting up and doing well.

We'll keep you all posted.

Still hanging in there.

At 2.5 , still going with Potocin. Ang is doing really good.
Ang's Mom is now here and sharing stories to pass the time.

More to come.

Today's the day.

Ang's water broke around 5:30 in the morning. When my alarm went off about 6 she said, "We're going to have a baby." So I got a shower and we gathered the rest of everything and headed to the hospital.

Interesting side note if you're ever going to have an emergency, have it around 6-7 AM as there wasn't anyone in the emergency room waiting area.

We're all setup in the room and waiting. Ang is doing great.

So now we wait...
