Teeth, School, and Walkers


Aden has his SECOND tooth. Those things just keep shooting out! Both of them are about 1/2 way up right now. I think today was the first time in a LONG while that his teeth weren't hurting him. No orajel, tylenol, teething tablets... nothing. He was SO happy! Back to his normal old self. I'm happy to know that the reason he has been so fussy was because of his teeth. I am NOT happy to know that there will be lots more coming. 

Aden has gradumatated into 12 month sleepers! Actually they aren't even sleepers. They are two piece outfits (so he doesn't outgrow them as fast). He still fits in a few 9 month sleepers but not enough to last a week. (Laundry day is once a week). No more little lions, bears, or sayings on his little feet. Just boring old socks. Maybe I WILL give in and get a 12 month sleeper. Just one :)

Speaking of growing, man this kid can eat. Aden loves loves loves his solid food--except bananas and sweet peas. Since we tested all of the foods and he didn't have any kind of allergic reaction, we can move onto stage 2 food! Tonight he had the Farmer's Market Veggie Dinner! It had Carrots, Corn, and tomatoes all pureed together. He loved it! Tomorrow we will have oatmeal mixed with Apples and Cherries. Yum yum yum! Solid foods are so fun! Solid food poop is not fun. 

Ryan and I both started school today! I've got to say, I have it way easier than Ryan. Ryan goes to school everyday but Friday, Saturday and Sunday. He works full time at a very physical job (lifting 80+ lbs) Monday Wednesday and Friday. On Monday and Wednesday he goes straight from work to school until 7:30. Then he watches Aden 4-7:50 p.m on Sat. and Sunday he has to mow. Talk about NO free time!!! He also is taking a class online! My schedule is a little easier. I go to school Tuesday night and Saturday 4-7:50. I am also taking an online class. Aden is a pretty good nap taker so I think I'll be able to get some studying done. Let's all wish Ryan a great big GOOD LUCK! He is such a hard worker and an amazing dad. 

Aden has a new toy! It's the safety 1st walker! I researched for hours online looking for a good walker that isn't hard to move on carpet with. We have hard tiles in the kitchen and wood in the foyer but carpet everywhere else. I looked at all the "top of the line" brands and none of them had good reviews. I chose the Safety First walker from Wal-Mart for only $35. Compared to $70-99, that's not to shabby. Aden just figured out how to move it today- backwards. I keep moving him near me and he disappears. Then I hear a bang against a wall. Silly boy. 

I wanted to write down Aden's schedule somewhere so this is where I chose to do it....

between 6:30-7 a.m- Aden wakes up and eats a bottle. Then he plays around with me for a little, usually in the jumperoo 

between 8-8:30 a.m- Aden lays down for a nap. He is usually exhausted by now.

between 9-9:30 a.m- Eats a bowl of cereal mixed with 1/2 jar of fruit. Immediately after he eats a 6-7 ounce bottle. 

between 10-10:30 a.m- Aden takes another nap or plays in his crib while I get things done around the house

between 11-11:30 a.m- Wakes up and usually we do tummy time

between 12-12:30 p.m-Eats 7-8 ounce bottle

between 3-3:30 p.m- Eats 7-8 ounce bottle

between 5:45-6:15 p.m- Eats 1 jar of stage 1 veggies OR 3/4 jar of stage 2 veggies. Immediately after eats 2-3 ounces

around 6:30/7 p.m- bathtime! Rocking chair with mom. After bath he eats 4-6 more ounces of formula

between 7:30-8:30 p.m BEDTIME :)
