Aidan is Nine Months Old!

It's amazing to think that my little guy has been out of the womb as long as he was in there baking away! In many ways though, I could have predicted his personality. Jason nicknamed him "tough kicks" while I was pregnant because he would constantly be kicking me, full of energy, letting me know that he was in there!

And now, 9 months later, he is definitely a little spitfire, full of energy, letting me know that he is here and wanting me to watch all the things that he can do!

Here are some Aidan updates:
* has two teeth on the bottom and I'm sure a few more are about to pop in up top
* can crawl
* can and will pull up on anything and everything
* is able to stand on his own unassisted for 5-10 seconds at a time
* knows where he wants to go and what he wants to play with. It's so cool to watch him go after
what he wants

* is FULL of energy. I am constantly asked how I can keep up with him!
* recognizes people who are familiar to him
* on the opposite note, he is also becoming shy and aware of people he does not know. He does
not like being surrounded by strangers, will become overwhelmed and want Mommy
* loves playing with his friends and gets excited when he sees them!
* is still breastfeeding {love}
* eats meals of solid foods 3 times a day. He has tried a vast variety of foods. His favorite?
Avocados mixed with mango

* knows his own name and who Mama and Dada are
* can give us high five and regular five. (This is SOOO cute!)
* says "mama" when he is upset and will hold his arms up to me (inconsistently)
* says "hi daddy"- but we are not sure if he realizes what he is saying...
* loves all of our animals and plays with them nicely
* really likes to play with balls, his train and anything that he can roll
* likes to drink out of water bottles
* loves books and reading. He will choose what book he wants to read if you give him options
* knows how to give kisses

Happy nine months baby Aidan! We love you so much!! :)

  1. Ahhh, happy birthday baby!!! Wow, he's doing so much with saying mama and daddy and the high five! I love it. And standing unassisted too- whoa! James is also a little shy around strangers and has a little bit of an attachment to me. He's sooooo cute!
