almost 2....

As of Friday, I can now say Aiden is "almost 2" instead of "just turned 1". But since when talking about children below 1 you label their age by months, I guess it's best to say Aiden is now 18 MONTHS. He is doing great and scored 100% on his 18 month evaluation given to him by the state through day care. He hasn't had his 18 month evaluation at the doctor.
We visited Hornsby this weekend for the first time since June and many people were shocked by how much Aiden has grown and changed in just 1 month. It's amazing how fast he's grown.
I really feel like Aiden went to bed with a vocabulary of about 10 words and woke up with about 40 other words added to it. He definitely takes after me in the talking category, and the singing and dancing area too (NO I'm not at all good at either but I love doing them both). I don't know if it's because the first day I found out I was pregnant I started playing music every night for him or just the fact that Brandon and I love music so much but Aiden LOVES music. He knows the tune to songs I didn't even know he knew. He sings them for anyone that will listen and always adds some incredible dance moves with it. I have a great video of his version of "twinkle twinkle, itsy bitsy spider". No he can't say all the words but the tune is right on.
Despite his love for music, Aiden does have a few (vital to life) things he does hate like sleeping and eating. He loves sleeping at night but hates naps (what child doesn't though?), which he usually goes all weekend without. Oddly enough he can also go all weekend without eating a meal too. This whole weekend Aiden ate 3 crackers, 4 bites of chicken noddle soup, couple of cheetos, and finally a few carrots (no I usually don't track so carefully what he eats but I have to considering in a 8 months he hasn't gained 1 lb). He is just way to active to sit and eat, and unlike his momma it's not something he enjoys doing.
Because Aiden wants me to spend every minute that he is can playing with him or playing outside I have had very little time to update my blog so enjoy all the pics from the past month (I do have soo many videos too but on another computer I will get them up in the next month or 2 Haha).Hey whats that say?
(Jessica I stole your idea from Riley's 8 month pics)Well it did say 18 months"What you said I didn't just turn 1" "I'm almost 2 YAHH"
