Some big "firsts" for Aiden

1. He's getting teeth! Two days before we left for Dallas, Aiden was chewing on my hand as usual and I thought I felt a little bump. I had jumped to that conclusion many times before ("I think I feel a bump - I'm sure we'll see a tooth any day now"...two weeks later, still nothing) so I was hesitant to say anything. Sure enough, the day we were leaving, I could definitely tell it was a tooth about to break through his gums. He's getting the two bottom ones, slowly but surely. I can't quite get a picture that shows 'em yet, but I'll keep trying!

2. He got his first real haircut. And boy did he need it! Aiden has some crazy hair - it's thin, fine, and won't lay flat for anything. We finally decided (just short of plastering it down with some hair gel every morning), that a haircut might help. I honestly don't know why we didn't do it sooner. I think I was reluctant because I was afraid to cut any of what little hair he had (I'm not kidding when I say it's thin!) But I hope you'll agree that it looks super cute... :)


  1. Aiden you look adorable with your new haircut! Can't wait to see pictures of those teeth :)

  2. He looks great! You know how I captured Jack's first teeth before they were large enough for photos. Go see January 2007 on the blog. I got Jack to bite into a piece of cantalope and took a pic of that. :)
    Aiden looks great and sooooo happy! Did he do well with the haircut?
