2 months already!

This post is a little late, but we have passed the 2 month mark of having Aiden in our home. He has been such a joy and a blessing. We are still getting used to the fact that we are the parents of 2, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

In the past few weeks, he has learned to smile, talk and laugh a little. He has also grown out of some of his 3 month clothes! Aiden is putting on weight very well now, so we are no longer having to supplement with formula at feedings. He is sleeping great, and in his own bed (something we didn't think would ever happen after our Christopher experience!) We have even been told he'll start to sleep between 10-12 hours a night sometime in the next 6 weeks. So, fingers crossed for that one.

One of his favorite things to do is just lay and stare out the sky lights above the couch, or the windows in our room. The weather has been so up and down that we have not been able to be outside as much as we'd like, but we do what we can.

Aiden has been a joy to have in our home. Christopher still loves to help and make sure he is okay. Bubba has had a little cold lately, so he hasn't been able to help as much, which has made him not happy some days, but he knows we have to keep Aiden from being sick.

From the top of his auburn colored head to his Fred Flinstone feet, we have learned so much about love all over again with this new blessing. And watching Christopher learn to love Aiden so much has blessed Chris and I tremendously.
