SO it looks like Gustav will be hitting Monday and Tuesday and it is headed towards New Orleans. We were supposed to be headed down to New Orleans on Tuesday to get Aidan's implant activated. It doesn't look like we will be going, but we will find out for sure Monday night/Tuesday morning. It really sucks, I was really looking forward to this day and don't want to postpone it. I am hoping if we do have to cancel it that we can get in later that week or early the next week. Our luck we won't be able to get in for another several weeks, then I'll be really pissed.
Aidan has finally started signing some. He signs eat, ball, cold(though I don't think he understands this one), and baby(not sure if he gets this one of not). It is great to see him finally connecting things together.
Aidan is now also getting tooth number 2 and 3 in. Although he is also grinding them together which I hate the sound of. Hopefully he stops doing that very soon.
Aidan is finally walking while holding onto my hand, but when I let go he will not go any more. He is still very unsure of it but I expect him to be walking by 15 mths. That gives him a month and a half to get a little more confidence.
He is also stacking blocks(and putting them back in the bucket). I love seeing him connect everything together and try to copy me. He also will pick up toys occasionally and throw them in the toy bucket, although he usually prefers to throw them out of the bucket :)
We welcomed our 3rd baby boy into the family on August 18, 2008. Andrew John David was born at 8:09am weighing 8lbs 9oz and 21" long. He has a head full of brown hair and looks like his mama :) Not at all like the other 2 boys. Alex does ok with him, he could really care less lol. Aidan is a bit jealous and not quite sure what to make of him. I think it will get better in about a year when Andrew is mobile and can play.
We have scheduled Aidan's implant activation day for September 3, 2008. I cannot wait for it. Originally we didn't think I was going to be able to go with Edward, since I will be having a csection on August 18, but I think I will be healed enough to go. Even if I am not, I think I will push myself anyway. I may be in a lot of pain, but I don't want to miss that moment for anything. We haven't told family yet when the day is and might not if we don't have to. I can see everyone calling us all day that day to find out the news and if it doesn't work, it will be pretty hard on us. Some of our family don't seem to understand that this isn't 100% foolproof, it may not work at all. So everyone please pray that it works for him and he can finally hear on that day.
Aidan has been learning a lot of new things lately. He finally figured out how to drop the balls into his ball toy, he also picks up toys and puts them back in the toy bucket :) Of course he still enjoys throwing them out more. He has finally gotten his first tooth at 12.5 mths old, YAY! Now if only he would get some more. Edward is taking him down to New Orleans tommorow for a checkup. Kind of sucks b/c he will have to drive there tommorow night after working 6 hours, it is a 6 hr drive, so they won't get there until 11pm at the earliest. The appt is at 1:15pm and will most likely only take 20 mins tops--I believe they just want to make sure the incision is healing like it is supposed to, which it looks great to me, I'll try to get a picture when he wakes up.
Alex and I made cookies today, thay boy is loving to cook. He doesn't like to eat though, weird little boy. Aidan ate his cookie and enjoyed every minute of it. A few pictures to document his first chocolate chip cookie.
