Well, Aidan is almost 13 months now and he is still not showing any desire to walk. He has taken a couple of steps by himself but then he just falls down and crawls. I really thought that he would be walking by now. I have my fingers crossed that he will be walking at least by the end of the summer. I know, people say I shouldn't rush it-the thing is-Jeremi was walking when she was 10 months-so for Aidan not to be walking yet is frustrating. He is still growing everyday and babbling like crazy-his new word is "uh-oh" when he drops something. It is very cute. He will look at us and then say it. At his 12 month checkup he was in the 75th percentile for height and size of his head and 25-50th percentile for his weight. His doctor said around a year their weight slows down but his is steadily increasing. That is because he eats like a little pig. He is still loving yogurt, applesauce, and fruit(almost any fruit except for mandarin oranges). His favorite things are Cheetos puffs and anything Mexican. He really loves guacamole. He is on whole milk and loving it. He is drinking from a sippy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and has a bottle before bed. I decided not to take him completely off the bottle just yet. He really loves that bottle at night. We are looking for a babysitter or daycare-still trying to make that decision. I am a little nervous about a "true" daycare. I am really hoping to find an in-home daycare. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The kids and I are leaving early Sunday morning to go to Lubbock to see family. We haven't traveled with Aidan that far since last Thanksgiving-when he slept most of the way. This will definitely be an adventure. Wish me luck.
Aidan loving his cake. This is the car that my mom got him that he loves. Cousin Kyren and Aidan's friend Christopher. This is the wagon that we bought him for his birthday. Aidan's 1st birthday party was alot of fun. We had friends and family over for a cookout and had water things for the little ones to play with.
So many things have happened these last two weeks. Aidan got his first haircut. It was eventful. At first he hated it. He was crying. Then, the stylist put him in a chair that looked like a car and he got used to it. There were so many things going on that he kept looking from side to side. There were some spots that were a little off but for what she had to deal with-she did a really good job. Then, we had the end of school. Jeremi was commended on math and reading TAKS. We are so proud. Bobby took her to Splashtown and they both came back looking like lobsters. Next came Aidan's birthday. I still can't believe that he is already 1. He has grown so much. We had his party this last Saturday. We had so much fun. We had water stuff for the kids to do. The weather was great. Family and friends came over and we had hamburgers and hotdogs. Aidan loved his cake. He really dug in. He ate all the icing and a little of the cake part. He was exhausted when everyone left. We have spent most of today just laying around. I am hoping to get some pics up soon. I am still figuring everything out. Hopefully, once I get everything figured out I can post more.
