It’s that time again, folks. Time for crabby, fevery, cranky babies to get more teeth. Yep, more pearly whites are due in any day. Yippee! Aidan was a mess tonight at family dinner. No actually, a mess would have been an improvement. Poor little guy fell off the couch and bonked his noggin on the coffee table and got a nice little goose egg. šŸ˜¦

He’s so tough he cried for a few minutes but then he was back down to his previous steady whimper. Uncle CJ gave him a nice dose of Tylenol and we were out the door heading for home. He is asleep now and hopefully that was long lasting Tylenol and he’ll sleep through the inevitable headache he must have on top of the teething pain. Other wise it’s gonna be a doosie of a night. I don’t know why teething takes such a toll on the big guy, but he falls apart at the seams every time!

This afternoon we had a bit, like seven seconds, of fun with grapes.

Ohh, exciting my very own bowl full of grapes!

MMM, Grapes

Let me see…how many of these can I fit in my mouth at once?

Chubby Cheeks

What no more? I am so over this bowl!

Done with this!

Intoxicating Sleep!

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting tagged , , at 9:24 pm by Momma

Well folks, it was Christmas in January at our house this morning. Sweet, sweet Christmas. Remember when you were a little kid and would say, “Mommy, mommy if you please buy me this insert request here, I’ll never ask for anything again?” This was one of those times. I desperately needed a full night of uninterrupted sleep. Last night my little precious angel of life and love slept C.O.N.T.I.N.U.A.L.L.Y from 8:30 ish to 7:40 am! Without a single peep! Dad-Oh and I woke up this morning to him thumping around in his crib. We were shocked when we looked at the clock! I’m very blind and when I looked at the clock and saw what I thought was a seven as the first digit, I had to ask Dad-Oh for verbal confirmation! šŸ˜†

Unfortunately, the day didn’t go so well. Those last teeth have got to be making their way in soon, because he was a clingy, cranky guy today. So I’d be willing to wager a bet that Christmas is indeed over, and I’ll be hearing the whimpers of a fevery-fussy little boy around 2-3 am. šŸ˜¦ We are hoping that he cuts most of the remaining teeth before we leave for Kona. I think has has eight left? The way he has been going lately, I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

At least I had one night! I can only dream of the nights where sleeping soundly until 7 ish is the norm. *sigh*

On the bright side: today is my Friday and I have the next four days off! šŸ™‚ At least I’ll be able to take a mid-day nap if I need to! šŸ˜‰

Nap Time?

Posted in Buggle Bite, Parenting, Video tagged , , at 8:17 pm by Momma

For the last few weeks while Aidan has been working on his molars he has been getting up at the ungodly hour of 5 am! Most of the nights include at least three middle of the night crying sessions! Ugh! Dad-Oh and I have major bags under our eyes! We look like the walking dead!

As you might imagine getting up that early makes it mighty hard for the little guy to make it to his noon nap time. The last few days he has refused lunch and instead insists on his nap–NOW. Which is mostly okay if we have a snack ready and waiting for the famished toddler when he wakes up.

On several occasions he has entertained the thought of lunch only to do this instead:

That’s all for tonight! I am taking the advice of my son and insisting on an early bedtime tonight!

At Your Service

So I’m pretty sure I am the best tech support around! Auntie Amanda has recently purchased herself a little piece of Internet heaven and I have been there to support her every step of the way! Okay, support her…do it FOR her what’s the difference?! Thanks to a little text messaging/IM’ing/and logging into her account through my ftp I had her up and running in mere minutes. VERY different than my experience! After all what are BFF’s for? BTW, Auntie–MERRY CHRISTMAS! šŸ˜›

Aidan has been such a happy little guy as of late! He is a totally different kid when he isn’t teething! He went to play group today and was a happy little clam, until his nap time grew near! We came home, had a snack and he was out like a light for three hours!

Here are some action shots of him chasing the big kids at Saturday nights Christmas Party.

Iā€™m Coming!Flash

Not much else to say….oh yeah: at his last Well Child Check (11/28/07) Aidan was just shy of 25 pounds and 32 inches! But we already knew he was a beast in the middle! šŸ˜›
