Aidan's First Christmas

Last Photos of 2008

I had a few more photos that I wanted to post and include in the 2008 Blog Book, but I want to leave the new video at the top for now, so I'm cheating and changing the post time on this. It's really just before midnight, mountain time.


I love my boy!


Grandma is going to miss AJ so much - she wants to come every month!


Such a cute face! Sporting another personalized shirt :-)


I got a haircut yesterday. It was finally getting long but also annoying!


It took Isaac and me (yes it should be "me" and not "I") only 3 days to build this 3428 piece Eiffel Tower!


Shopping spree anyone?? My mom and I had fun.

More Aidan


Trying out the Bumbo and Moccasins.


Playing with Grandpa and Daddy.


Napping on his mommy.


Sitting in his frog bouncer - he can't quite touch the floor yet!

More Christmas Photos


James (aka "Britt") and Kali.


Colorado girls!


Sitting down to Christmas dinner - Isaac made amazing turkey and stuffing.


Aidan is sporting his Baby's First Christmas onesie.


Ready to head over to the Corbrahams for Chocolate Mousse Cake!


Testing out his new Jumparoo the following day. He's not sure what to think!

Christmas Morning

Between me and Britt, we have hundreds of photos already from Christmas!! So, I'll start with a few highlights from Christmas morning, then post more later from the last couple of days.


Aidan's stocking looked great hanging up!


He was happy to hang out and watch.


Kali loved helping everyone unwrap.


Aidan liked playing in his new toy from his Aunt and Uncle.


Kali goes fishing! She also loves the alphabet animal bus, seen in the background.


Granny Blake got a stand-up AJ.


I surprised Isaac with the squeezebox he's been wanting.


Every Colorado kid needs some sunglasses!


AJ loves his grandpa too!


I'm building a 1:300 scale Eiffel Tower!!! We'll post more as we progress.


Britt and Kali, with James trying out the new camera.


James posing for some camera testing.

A Man and his Monkey

Aidan made friends with his monkey recently! He likes the nice soft hugs the monkey gives him.



We've had to swaddle him again since he kept flailing his arms and poking himself in the face!

Fun in the Tub



Aidan does love bath time.

Little Trooper



Aidan went out a lot today, and was always a good little boy! He went to Target with me this morning, then we met some friends from work for Happy Hour, and then he came out to dinner with me and Isaac. He loves being all snuggled up in there!

Swinging Away

Aidan does love his swing. He always looks so cute and happy, so I had to grab the camera.


He's getting good at looking at the camera and smiling!


And he even gave me a wave!


Then he went back to looking at the baby in the mirror above him.


This is what he sees!

He swung away while I did my workout DVD next to him. He also likes to watch that, he wonders why mommy is jumping around so much!

After that, he exploded again and required the 3rd outfit of the day, and it wasn't even 3:00 yet :-)

Super Baby



And no, "Super Baby" doesn't refer to Aidan's flying position in these photos; I'm referring to the fact that he's only worn one outfit today! Et tu, spit-up, Brutus?



Now he's just got to work on his nursing etiquette!

BTW, at his 2-month appointment he was 23.5", 11 lbs 3 oz, and 15 cm head circumference (90%, 70%, 25%, respectively). Looks like Aidan might have inherited his dad's -- shall we say -- "shallow" dome.



(Even though this says "posted by Jenna", it's actually Isaac ... you see, Jenna's Gmail is on FireFox and I've got Chrome ... and Blogger only works with FireFox.)

More Aidan

Poor Aidan had a rough day yesterday after getting his 2 month shots. We've never heard him scream so loud and for so long! Poor little guy. We're not looking forward to the next set.

He's happy now taking a nap in his daddy's lap!


Here's a cute one from our Christmas card photo shoot - hadn't posted any before but now people should have received their cards, so it won't ruin the surprise. I love that little chin!

More Smiles

Aidan was a little fussy last night, but he's happy again this morning!


Smiling at me.


Holding himself up from tipping over!


Working on a roll.

Aidan @ Two Months



Aidan's already at 2 months - as of yesterday! It's really flown by, and I know time is not going to slow down at all with him around.
So, here's a snapshot of Aidan right now:
- Smiles at us more and more
- Sleeps from about 10pm to 4am, and takes a long nap in the middle of the day
- Interacts more with his toys, and likes to watch his mobile spin
- Loves the swing!
- Loves bath time
- Falls asleep in his car seat really easily, so he's easy to take out
- Likes to go jogging with me

He's getting pretty chubby too, he'll be weighed again on Monday so we'll see how he's doing. I only lost a few pounds this month, but I'm working on it! I swear some fat has turned to muscle... :-) Actually today I did my first really hard ride - it was a group ride that wasn't so hard for everyone else, but it was a huge effort for me.

Here's a few more photos from the last couple of days since I've been slacking on the posting.
