I Love December

Last Day of One Tooth Wonder
It's the most wonderful time of the year! December means that I can finally start listening to Christmas music, decorate the house and enjoy the lights of the neighborhood. I have always found December to be a magical month, and I finally have a house of my own to express the holidays with my own style. It will take a few years to bulk up my decorations, but I look forward to transforming the house into a winter wonderland that will serve as wonderful memories for my darling son. Every day that kid becomes more and more of a character, and he cracks me up on an (minimum) hourly basis. Not only is his little personality developing, but also his sense of adventure; which unfortunately leads to bumps and bruises.  He got his first little bruise on his chin, and I am not even sure how it got there. It is just a tiny little spot, but it makes me really aware of the fact that I will never be able to protect this little one completely.  It is a fine line between protecting Aiden and letting him learn to stand (literally) on his own two feet. I know that life is full of bumps and bruises, it is just hard to watch your child go through any kind of pain. Speaking of pain, Aiden is cutting three teeth at once. By next week I am confident that he will be the proud owner of his four front teeth! I can't help but constantly take the opportunity to sing "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" to him! A few other new things with him this week include: holding a cup with straw and drinking it on his own, feeding himself with a spoon and completely getting the hang of picking up his food and eating it! There has been a lot more activity in our house, but I like to keep these posts short and sweet. Check in next week for more adorable Aiden updates!
