Aiden is Eleven Months

Isn't he handsome?  We are having so much fun with him!  More personality comes out each month and it is the most amazing thing to watch a little person emerge.  Let's do this month bullet style...

*Turning around to get off the couch and down the stairs.  He cannot get near the stairs without two sisters immediately running to his "aide".

*He goes up the stairs with no trouble

*Cut four teeth on top, really all the same day, though the one to the right of his front tooth was prominent first

*He's just started "singing"...I'm trying to teach him Twinkle, Twinkle

*He stands for up to a minute or two without holding on to anything.  He used to not know he was doing it, now he does it regularly

*For sure he is ticklish, though that's not a new development

*Eats well, though has quite a few things he won't eat.  This is a new concept for me since the girls never turned away anything.  Still can't pinpoint the things he consistently doesn't like however, I know he is a big fan of fruit, specifically strawberries.

*He sleeps right through the morning feeding at 6 am, so now we see him closer to 8

*Nicknames of the month: Dabby, Roo, Roo-Roo, Dukey

He gets packed around like this quite a bit and doesn't mind, unless he was in the middle of something.
See those teeth?
Believe it or not, I get this face some, too.
I cropped this photo so you wouldn't be able to see the AA battery he had in his mouth. :)
Apparently, men learn the remote thing early.

Roo, you have our hearts.  Mine skips a beat when I look in those eyes.  We love you!

These really capture his personality! He is really cute Lisa, and a good mix between looking like each of his sisters.
