Three things Aidan did Today

1. Aidan is standing again - finally! He was doing it before Christmas for very short periods, but since he was sick, he wasn't strong enough. Now, he's at it again with a vengeance! He'll stand and sit for about 20 reps - cheering madly between each attempt. Kieran and Liam are very excited for him. It is so cute to see.

2. The big guy learned to go backwards down the stairs today - yahoo! He did it twice and managed about 5 stairs each time.

3. He was swimming like a fish during our Family Swim Lessons. He was blowing bubbles, kicking, and moving his arms through the water. He absolutely loved it. We were in the water for an hour - and he still wasn't pooped enough for a nap.

Yay Aidan!! I love the cheering for themselves! That is on of my favorite stages.

Aidan, please, please show Samantha how to back down the stairs!!! We're about to find out how hard it'll be to teach that to her when we move. She thinks she can just hold our hands all the time and walk down the regular way, but I don't know how far her over-confidence will take her...

Becca, maybe I can capture Aidan on film and Sammi can watch it (if I can figure out the camera!) Give me a few days, and we'll see if Aidan cooperates!

Go Aidan! You are a moving and a grooving!
