As we come to the end of the first year of Aidan's life...it amazes me to look back and see how much he has grown. This past Monday we had a check up at the Dr. and as usual, Aidan is as perfect as we knew he was. He now weighs 20lbs 14oz. WOW! That is almost triple what he weighed at birth. He is crawling all over the place and is in to absolutely everything! I have to say, I can't seem to figure out what the fascination is with power outlets. Now all of ours are equipped with plastic covers that are nearly impossible for even Adam or I to remove. Aidan has also mastered sitting up on his own from a laying position. Although to some this may seem like a great accomplishment, to us it is just the latest thing to keep Aidan up way past his bedtime. You see, he has mastered the sitting up, but the laying down afterwards he has not quite got. So, when we lay him down for bed at night in his crib, he almost immediately sits up and within ten minutes begins to screech because he truly is exhausted and wants to lay down to sleep. You would think one time of this would do it, but no, it continues sometimes for hours. On Tuesday morning, Adam went to get Aidan out of his crib and the poor guy was sleeping sitting up. Luckily for us, despite the funny little things he does, Aidan is a wonderful child. He is so happy and very easy going. We can't ever leave the house without someone complimenting us on how beautiful he is and how marvelous of a smile he has. I think for Adam and I, Aidan has filled a place in our hearts we didn't even know was empty. We are very blessed to have him and can't wait to see what the years ahead have in store. If the rest of our lives with him turn out to be half as good as the past year, it's going to be a great, great ride. We love you all, thanks for checking in! Here is my newest picture of the sweet boy!
