Aidan Is One Week Old!

This past week has flown by. It's unbelievable to us that Aidan is all ready a week old. He surprises us everyday with his new little quirks, personality traits and facial expressions. Here are some highlights of Aidan's first week of life:

* He is a night owl, and has been staying up as late as 5 am- which makes Mommy very tired!

* He is not a fan of the tight swaddle. This little boy loves to stretch out and have his hands up near his face.

* Daddy has become a diaper changing champion and also has been reading to his little man.

* Aidan recognizes our voices and looks up at us when we talk to him.

* He loves music and always looks towards the direction the music is coming from.

* He loves listening to his Gram sing to him.

* I am all ready five pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight!

* He is stubborn like his Mommy- taking the bottle/breast when HE wants it!

* On a rather sad note, he has nipple confusion and we have been having some major problems breastfeeding. It makes me rather upset, as I really want to have this special bond with him. But, we are not giving up and I am hoping that he'll come around. I have to think positive and be happy that atleast he is drinking my breastmilk.

* He is SMELLY! The nurses commented in the hospital that he was the stinkiest baby in the nursery- he is still VERY stinky at home!

* He likes to watch shadows and when there are black/white commercials on TV.

* He is not at all bothered by the dogs and doesn't wake up when they bark or start to play loudly.

* He has his Daddy's eyes and his Mommy's cheeks and BIG feet! The rest is still debatable....

I can't wait to see what next week will bring!



  1. I'm so impressed that you have kept up with the blog so well with the little one! Good job with the baby weight, I can imagine that would be hard to lose! Sounds like you are well taken care of with you mom visiting. Thanks for sharing the baby pics! I completely agree that he has daddy's eyes. Glad you are doing so well!
