Howdy. It is a gorgeous morning here in southwestern Ohio and the spring flowers are in full bloom in our garden. Easter weekend came and went super quickly and poor JM was on call and slammed around the clock. Hopefully, this week will be a bit calmer for him. I have some major deadlines this week to take care of, but the taxes are done, my office is all packed up and ready for my move on Wednesday, and I even managed to give myself a pedicure on Saturday.

Aidan is doing better this morning than he was doing towards the end of last week and all weekend. Poor baby has had a viral eye and nose infection since Wednesday of last week, got a 24 hour stomach flu on Friday (resulting in a major vomit all over the back seat of my car), and then fell three times yesterday (resulting in two busted lips and a bruised cheek). He was so sad and beat up that I have been babying him extra over the last 12 hours. I have learned that learning to walk = looking like you have been in a drunken bar brawl.

Other than the tribulations of finding his balance, Aidan is pure joy. He is so full of life, so fearless, and so hilarious. He walks around saying uh oh often, waving at everyone he meets saying bye bye, and has started pointing to things that interest him (loves a ceiling fan)! He smiles and laughs all the time, is super into his newest bath toys, and is consistently sleeping from 8 pm until 5 am, with a short wake up no longer than 15 minutes, and then back to sleep until around 7:30. He is still napping for about 1 1/2 hours in the morning and up to 2 hours in the afternoon.

Here is a photo of this weekend's falling damage. I think as a treat he deserves some frozen yogurt for that swollen lip!!!

With love,
