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!
