19 Weeks

Thursday, April 8, 2010

In honor of Aidan reaching 19 weeks of age I'm going to do a Thankful on Thursday post, review a couple of items that have entered baby-entertainment rotation in our household, and just update in general. :)

First up, Things I'm Thankful For Today:
1) Mike's mother, for watching Aidan for us 2 days a week while Mike works. Without her we wouldn't be able to afford daycare, what with Mike only working 16 hours a week! We are lucky enough because she only works about 20 hours a week, so she's able to watch Aidan on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It's good for them to bond, and Aidan sure loves his grandma. It breaks my heart that I can't stay home with him, but everyone know how much grandmas love their grandbabies, so I know he's in awesome hands :)

2) Mike, for being the most amazing guy & father, EVER. He will get up at night if I ask (which I usually don't), he plays stay at home daddy 3 days a week, and he isn't scared of a poop or puke covered baby. He will buy me tampons when I'm bleeding, cheesecake when I'm dieting, and then hug me when I cry because I don't want to leave my baby and go back to work. All without a complaint. He cooks dinner for me every night and does more than 50% of the housework on the weekends. He isn't a very verbal man but he knows I work hard to provide for our family so he steps it up and tries to help.

Favorite items of the moment:

1) Baby Einstein Jumperoo (Here): He seems to think this is HIGHLY amusing when I grab his little legs and jump him around. He's starting to get the idea behind it, but still thinks it's funnier when I make him jump ;)

2) Sophie (Here): Pretty obvious, he chews, slobbers, & noms on her quite a bit.

3) Link A Dos (Here): Didn't expect these to be such a huge hit, but he LOVES him. Always has a link of 2-3 in at least 1 hand all day long. Loves to chew them, suck on them, stare at them, swat at them, etc.

4) Fisher Price Rainforest Gym (Here): I thought kids kinda grew out of this thing early, but it seems like the older he gets the more he enjoy it, especially now that we linked up some Link A Dos with some carseat toys, etc.

Aidan is doing well. He's rolling over both ways now. Eating 5+oz every 3 hours or so. His reflux is still there, we tried to taper off his meds and it was puke city. :( So we definitely upped then again, he's obviously not ready yet. He almost always sleeps from 8:30pm-8:30am-ish, with a few variances. He's SUCH a happy baby, loves to laugh and giggle. We finally got some real, true belly laughs the other night. I was crying I was laughing so hard. Every day just keeps getting better!

Thanks for the update. He sure is cute! I was surprised how much my son likes the Link A Dos too!

April 26th, his 5 month birthday! I should have made it a shorter entry period, but I was half asleep when I put up the giveaway. Oh well!

Stopping by from the D-List!

I'm lucky enough to have a MIL who watching my babies when I work (only 1 day a week) for me, too!

Your DH sounds a lot like mine - is yours a good cook? Mine can do a few things really well but needs a lot of instruction if it's something he hasn't made before! :)
