11 Months

Aidan,

You’re 11 months old now. I’m convinced you’ll be walking by your first birthday, but we’ll see!! You’re still a great sleeper, eater, and you love to play. We’re gearing up for your first birthday soon! Nothing is really new, you’re in size 5 diapers. You have 6 teeth (3 up top, 3 on bottom).

We love you more than anything, can’t wait until your FIRST BIRTHDAY!

Aidan’s 10.5 months now, and oh boy is he a handful! He’s always into everything, but it’s so cute it’s easy to not get frustrated. He’s truly inquisitive about the world around him, and it’s awesome to see him learn how things work. His big brown eyes just light up when he discovers something new!

He had his first real playdate with a friend close to his age. They played nice the whole time!

He loves it when his daddy lays on the floor with him to play before bedtime.

He’s teething so he loves to chew on everything, including bottles of Gripe Water.


You can see 2 teeth here, but he has 4 more hiding up top!

He loves his puffs, and they stick to him if he isn’t wearing a shirt 😉

10 Month Letter

Dear Aidan,

I have no idea where to start! You’re 10 months old now. I swear I feel simultaniously like I’ve known you all my life and that you just got here. Such conflicting emotions but I guess every mom feels that. You do new things every single day, so I’ll make a laundry list of them in the interest of quickness:

  • You walk, kind of. You hold 1 handed onto anything and everything and haul butt across the room. Hands, walls, couches, etc.
  • You say mama, dada, baba, buhbye, and hey
  • You eat everything. Pizza, pasta, etc etc etc. We feed you veggies and all sorts of healthy items but in reality you want whatever we are eating, and we give you bits of it not only to keep you from screaming but to expose you to plenty of foods!
  • You FINALLY mastered thumb-pointer finger grip. You still prefer to SHOVEL food into your mouth but you’re just an enthusiastic eater and I love that about you.
  • Favorite foods are still anything apple, pastas, breads, any fruits, carrots, broccoli, okay… everything! LOL
  • You are in size 4 diapers, 12 or 18 month clothing.
  • Your favorite toys right now are your Fisher Price music learning table, Fisher Price Roll Along Bongo Drums, and any and everything you can fit into your mouth
  • You have 6 teeth. 4 up top, 2 on bottom and you are most definitely working on some more.

And really, I couldn’t love you any more than I do. You’re simply the most awesome baby ever. Your great great gram passed away this week, and you were an angel (maybe her angel!) every time I took you to see her. You were quiet and respectful and you smiled at me while I cried for her. At the funeral today you kept yourself quiet and when I showed her to you in her casket you reached out and tried to eat the roses she was clutching. You fell asleep in your stroller and while you were awake you literally stole the show. Everyone wanted to love on the “most adorable baby ever”.

You have the most amazing personality ever, and everyone can see it. Thank you for giving me the honor of being your mother.

I love you,

Mama
