The Aidan-Daidan Times: Month 19 & 20

Dearest Aidan Daidan:

Perhaps I should give a shout out to Dooce and call this the Aidan-Daidan Times: LONG OVERDUE EDITION! We were on vacation with sketchy internet connectivity when you turned 19 months old, then we were in tropical paradise and I was lazy, then it was like okay may as well wait now that you’re almost twenty months, and now it’s pretty much back to me being lazy again!

Kidopolis

Alas here you are twenty months old! Just four short months shy of your big numero dos! If that’s not the craziest thing you have ever heard, I don’t know what is! You are rougher and tumbler then you ever have been. Just today you did this half face plant half fall off the stairs thingy at Jazzie’s house and you got up and went about your business without even a teensy peep. It does make me happy that not every little gust of wind makes you cry, but sometimes it really makes me wonder where the pain goes. Cuz, I’ve seen some doozies that HAVE to hurt.

At Your Own Risk

All the extra vitamin D from the Hawaiian sun triggered a growth spurt, because now that we’re back all of your 18-24 month pants are total high waters. And as we have discussed before boys can’t get away with calling them “capri’s!” An Old Navy order full of 2T pants should be arriving any day. 2T!!!?? I’m officially done with the clothes listed by months! 😦

Waves

Beachin’

The vitamin D sprouted a few new hairs on your little noggin too! A definite cause for celebration! After you wake from your afternoon nap you just about always have bed head! I never thought bed head would be such a milestone! You’re still no where near that first haircut! Maybe in six months?

Blowin’ In the Wind

You favorite new activity is grabbing me by the hand, pushing me up the stairs into your room, standing under the shelf in the closet where we keep your binkies, lifting your arms in the air and going, “AHHHHHH” until I bring the jar down for you. You LOVE playing with your binkies. You don’t even suck on them much, you just have a ball organizing them, stacking them, putting them in and our of the jar, and hiding them in obscure places. You did this for over 30 minutes while I organized tax papers in the office. If it wasn’t for the clicking of the handles I would have thought you fell asleep! Silly guy!

Suave

My most favoritest new activity this month is “big hugs.” It’s so darn cute and can make a bad day disappear in the blink of an eye. You try so hard to make your little arms reach all the way around my shoulders as you squeeze with all your might. Who knows maybe you’re really putting some binkie retrieving spell on me, but I like it just the same! When you are really tired you’ll give big hugs, then nuzzle your little head on my shoulder and get limp as a noodle. Which of course, makes my heart melt every.single.time!

Last night as I was clicking though all 3000 of your pictures, I saw you grow up right before my eyes! It was sad! My little baby Buggle is a big guy now! You come up past my hip! Which may or may not be a big deal, I have been called a “Hobbit-like creature” once or twice! Most days you eat more food than I do, and have far more energy than I do in any given week. And this is just the beginning! The sadness of missing yesterday leaves me longing for the joys of tomorrow. And the next day, and the next…

Bunches of Love,

Momma

    Taller than my Deeder! I guess I need to find a sunbeam and stick my boy under it for a week or two, huh?

    I love the first picture, that’s a real winner. 🙂
    The huggy business sounds adorable! Send some of that over into Deeder’s programming! He thinks he’s too old for snuggles.

    Happy 19/20 months, Aidan!
