Aiden’s First Movie

Aiden’s first movie experience. It took mommy and Aiden a while to get seated considering it was our first movie and things got loud and dark. But after 20 min. of thinking in the aisle we finally took a seat in mommy’s lap.

Bathroom break

Aiden went to the restroom by himself for the first time today. Mommy and Daddy were talking in the kitchen when we noticed that Aiden had wondered off. It was then that we heard the toilet flush. Aiden walked out (underwear on, pants off), VERY proud of himself.

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Happy 3rd birthday to Aiden!

While the “official” birthday party is Saturday, we had a nice impromptu pizza dinner with Grandma and Grandpa today. Both grandparents gave Aiden transformers for his birthday, bringing his total toy count to…uhm…one million and two.

Mommy baked a beautiful cake (Aiden helped), and Aiden blew out his three birthday candles with three mighty puffs.

We love you Adusha!
-Mommy and Daddy

Aiden gave up his passy for good yesterday. With Baba’s help, the passy “turned into a piece of paper”, and is no longer available.

He couldn’t fall asleep until midnight yesterday. Hoping tonight is better!

As of today, Aiden is 3 feet and 1/2 inch tall, and weighs 32.4 pounds (dressed, holding a toy).

That’s a good inch and a half taller than five months ago, but down about a pound. But, he’s been sick lately, so that explains the weight.


Aiden practicing his english with the standard phrase, “I would like to buy a hamburger”. Shot July 16th, 2009.


At two years, seven months, 10 days, Aiden has learned the word “No”. We’re in trouble now.

1 2 3 4

So, at two and a half years old, Aiden can count from one to four.

We were reading the Mickey Mouse counting book, counting such things as penguins, parrots, and crabs, and Aiden just started counting with us.

Now, we expect him to pursue a career in tensor calculus or mathematical field theory. Or maybe something with fish. We’ll see.

More words

Aiden is starting to use more words. Recent additions to his vocabulary include: boy, girl, golf, bull, and “goal!” when he scores playing Aidenball.

New Words

Aiden has been talking more lately, and his vocabulary is slowly, but surely, growing. White at Henry’s Ark over the weekend looking at the animals, he said “Llama” and “Piggy”, and he has been saying “Momma” lately, too.

There’s still plenty of goofy noises, of course.
