Five Weeks Old

Yeah, I know I promised to stop posting so many Aiden updates, but then I got sweet comments from people here, in person and even in the mail saying how much you like watching him grow and change through my blog. Besides that, this is primarily a journal for our family, so I like having it here too. Thus, Aiden's five-week update.

Let's see...he enjoys his baths now, or at least doesn't cry. He is making better and better eye contact and has smiled ever so briefly and small that I'm not sure I really saw it. His awake times are longer and happier, but he still sleeps a ton. Even at night he's doing good stretches. He likes to be held and is a good snuggler.

He's strong, too. He can do this for about 15 minutes at a time before getting bored, frustrated or just tired. Such kissable cheeks!

Oh, yes, please don't stop posting these updates! I love seeing this little guy, can't believe he's old enought to hold himself up on his tummy already.

oh my word he is almost as big as that bear!!! I think he grew the most in the last week!!!

And I so want to kiss those cheeks!!!

I think I see a gleam in his eye in those last pictures saying "I will catch up to those sisters, I will!!!"
