until I witnessed this....
my parents' dog is in heaven!
Last night I had a late meeting so I met my parents and Aiden for dinner. He had his first taste of ice cream. And it wasn't just ice cream, it was Culver$ frozen custard. I have been working with Aiden on some signs (more, please, drink, etc.). After each (small) bite, I would sign and say more. Do you think Aiden signed more? Nope, not my little genius. He mimicked/said the word more. Over and over and over again. It sounded like "moe", he was just leaving out the r sound. I think this is the closet he's gotten to a real word. And he knew exactly what he was asking for. He did it again at dinner tonight with his pineapple and pears. He is all about the food.
Now if we could just get back on a consistent sleep schedule, life would be good. It seems like he has one good night and then a rough night. Last night he was up until 10:30 and was up by 6:30. Of course he took marathon naps today, but I didn't get any of the work I brought home with me done last night. I really think it's teeth. He has only eaten 3 ounces of formula today. Yes, three- I'm having worrisome flashbacks to the hunger strike after his shots. At least he is eating baby food now. I am hoping I can get in at least 5 ounces for his bedtime bottle.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
