The month of December was very special. It meant Aiden's first Christmas. Looking back, I am so sad that Eric and I were more on the ball with documenting it in pictures. We didn't even get a picture of us with Aiden on his first Christmas. Oh well...you live, you learn. Here is what I do have from Aiden's 5th month.
The most wonderful thing about Christmas time is getting to be a stay at home mommy for two whole weeks. It was the best two weeks ever...
filled with lots of naps...
And play with my little man.
Daddy got in on the fun at night after work...
and Aiden was always happy to see him.
The month of December brought a few firsts. Aiden tried Rice cereal for the first time, and I have a video of the moment, but no pic.
He also laughed at Brinkley for the first time. This was a big moment for mommy.
Aiden also tried sitting up for the first time.
Didn't quite stay up yet, but we thought he looked quite funny...our little gorilla.
Because of the Rice Cereal, Aiden had his first sick doctor's visit. He hadn't pooped in a week! He didn't seem to mind in this picture taken at the doctor's office.
We tried to get Aiden's picture with Santa, but the wait was always at least 3 hours at Bass Pro. After the second try, we gave up, but on our way out, saw the opportunity to get his picture with some other bearded men...close enough. Still don't have Aiden's first picture with Santa.
Christmas Morning came, and Santa had visited Aiden for the first time! He delivered some sweet books, and Aiden's favorite new item - his jumperoo.
After we played a bit, we headed over to Lolly and Pops for the Ramirez Christmas.
Aiden had fun showing off his Reindeer outfit....
And playing for a while before presents.
After the Ramirez Christmas, we headed over to Eric's Aunt Debi and Uncle Mike's for the Ramirez/Kirksey Christmas.
Aiden had fun hanging with the guys....
and with sweet Jordan.
Later in the week, we got together with Aunt Megan, and Aiden got to hang out with cousin Camryn.
They had fun invading each others personal space.
Aiden grew quite a bit in month 5. He started to develop his little personality. He smiles and laughs a lot more now, and it made leaving him to go back to work in January so much harder.
