Happy Birthday Aidan!

It's been a whole year! Aidan Alexander is getting bigger, stronger, and funnier every day. He has taught us more lessons than we can count since he has been with us, and I'm pretty sure he has made this one of the best year's we've had together. Here are a few fun facts to celebrate his first year.

Wearing size 12-18 months.
Weighs 20 lbs 6 ounces.
Drinks 24 ounces of cow's milk a day and is still nursing about 2-3 times a day.
Eats 6 little gerber food things a day plus turkey/ham deli meat for dinner.
Still no teeth!!!
Crawls around but sill also likes to scoot.
Can stand and pull up on anything and loves to do it!!
Can walk if you hold his hands and walks on his own around furniture.
Says mama and dada.
Can wave goodbye, clap his hands on command, and give hi fives.
Loves to sing with mama and during church.
Using his left hand the most right now.
Favorite toy is his rubber ducky in the bath.

We are taking his professional shots in a couple of weeks but here is a shot I shot I took this morning in his new St. Louis Cardinals chair from Grandma and Grandpa who are visiting right now and also ones from all his month marks

Happy 1st Birthday Aiden! I can't believe it's already been a year. Charlie and I were just talking about when he was hanging out in the hospital with you guys while you were in labor :) Funny memories!

I love his outfit and he looks so big in that chair!! I miss you guys so much!! And wish that I could be closer to watch him grow, but the computer is great and I love that I can feel somewhat connected!!
