Happy Birthday

Lucas,

As I say all the time, I can't believe you're 1.My rainbow baby is now my rainbow toddler. You are such an amazing little boy. You are so happy, unless of course you're exhausted. You have 2 teeth all the way in and 2 teeth that broke the skin and are just working their way down. You love to give kisses while chomping on your victim. :-) You love going in the car, snuggles and your doggy. Honestly your list of hates is probably easier to list since there are very few of them. You want to be independent and hate when we won't put you down. I love you so much and I'm so happy to be your momma.

He took 2 steps!

Saturday night Lucas took steps. One of my BFFs had just come over and he did it. So proud of the little dude. I tried to get a video of it today, but he wasn't feeling it. This is as close as I got.

I hope the video works

I love you Aidan Christopher and I'm so proud of you Lucas Alexander!

Party time!

Lucas did a fantastic job yesterday. He loves getting attention and eating cake. He also took two, TWO steps last night! Auntie Michelle, Uncle Dave and Bryson had just come over to get dinner and he took his steps. I cried. So here are some pictures from his party.















I love you Aidan Christopher and Lucas Alexander

11 months-better late than never


Right after getting his bath. :-)
 
Age: 11 months

Weight/Length:I would guess that he was about 19 lbs. When he had croup, they weighed him in at 18lbs 2 oz

Size: He wears 6-9 sleepers and 6-9 onsies. Still in 6m pants because he has not butt. :-)

Teeth: 2 and working on a top one

Sleeping: He loves it. He sleeps through the night and takes lots of naps

Eating: He eats a lot. Still 30 oz of milk/formula and 2-3 jars of food.
 
Movement: He is crawling all over the place and cruising around furniture

Milestones: cruising furniture and tossing toys out of his play area.

Favorite Toys: Any type of vehicle, ball or stacking cups.

Dislikes: Nothing really. He's pretty vocal when something annoys him or when he's done eating.

Words/sounds: He's saying mama and dada when looking at us. 

Love you Aidan Christopher and Lucas Alexander

Some Pics from Aidan's birthday

Froggy from Momo and Frampa

Hearts from grandma and grandpa
Close shot of his balloon.

Aidan's birthday was beautiful. Very nice weather, nice enough to have a picnic outside at the cemetery instead of in my car. I had a really good day celebrating his birthday. I didn't breakdown until after dinner. My mom went home and Chris was talking about something random and I lost it. Just started sobbing. Chris, being the awesome husband he is, asked if I wanted to go to Dunkin Donuts for raspberry coffee. Man that guy knows the way to my heart. :-) I miss my baby, but I know he's safe. 

The next day I got a pretty awesome package in the mail. I had no idea it was coming, but Chris said that we had a voice mail about it.
I asked for donations to Team Aidan Christopher on Aidan's birthday and that one day we got $200 in HONOR of my baby. I know "in honor" usually is for someone that lived, but I want to honor him. Way to go Team Aidan Christopher! Looking forward to what we can bring in this year.

I'm going to go quiet again. Today marks 2 years from when we found out that Aidan wasn't going to survive. 2 years ago today, we made the decision to take him off life support the next day. I still struggle with that, even though I know it was the best decision for him. Add in Lucas' birthday party coming up and I've got a lot on my plate. I will be posting Lucas' 11 month update soon. I have tried every day to get a good picture of him, but he won't stay still.

I love you Aidan Christopher and Lucas Alexander!

Happy Birthday pumpkin



Aidan,

Wow, I can't believe it's been 2 years since you've come into our lives. I love you and miss you so incredibly much! I'm in a really good place right now and I know that's because of you. Yes I still get sad, but you make me so happy. Saying your name makes me so happy. I hope you get a very yummy cake for your birthday. Momo, Lucas, and I are going to celebrate your birthday tomorrow with fun pancakes, a picnic (I can't believe it's close to 60 degrees in February)and then go out to dinner. I've decided that I always want to celebrate your birthday in a fun way. We didn't last year because of a nasty snow storm. I don't ever see snow as nasty since it was snowing the day you were born and the day you passed. It's my little reminder of you from the sky. :-)

I wish you were here to celebrate your birthday and I'm going to wish that every year. I know it's not possible, but I'm still going to tell you. I have a feeling that you are with us though. Lucas loves to wave to your pictures now and I think it's because you come and visit him. I see a lot of you in him.

I love you birthday boy.

Love, 
Momma
