|Our cutie in his fresh onsie...|
|My snoozing boys!|
While I was pregnant, I went to a huge consignment event in my area. That's where I purchased my breast pump and Moby D which would have both been worth every penny brand new so buying them used at such a discount was like a triple bonus! I also purchased a frame backpack that has been waiting on the shelf in Ayden's closet until today!!
We had been wondering for a couple of weeks now whether or not Ayden had grown into it yet. We decided to get it out and give it a little test run and it's perfect! He was so cute in it. If you've been following this blog for a while then you know that Ayden is well versed in the ways of baby wearing. I can probably count the days he hasn't been worn on my two hands as we try to do it at least once a day. When he got in the backpack he checked it out a little at first and then settled in and acted just like he does any other time he's worn. It's almost like he goes into his own little baby wearing world. He watches whatever is going on around him quietly and contentedly and only has a change in facial expression if you sing him his favorite songs or get in front of a mirror and start acting super silly. He just hung out with David and watched while he did some stuff in the kitchen. The best part was when Ayden eventually reached out to play with David's hair or pat in his shoulder. It was so cute! It was also cute that David went to look in the mirror 3 or 4 times. I could definitely tell they were both enjoying the experience. I think we have some hiking in our future!

The original recipe was a bit bitter in my opinion (maybe a little too much cocoa powder?) but after adding a good amount of honey, it hit the spot.
Ayden has already woken up twice since we put him to bed at 8 so I'm hoping that tonight doesn't end up being too rough on me! One thing that I've heard many times before and am finally beginning to accept is that "the only constant in life is change" and I think the part that was left out of the well known quote is "especially when it comes to babies." Just when everything falls into place, they start to teeth, hit a growth spurt, etc. and you're back to the drawing board just like that. As a parent it definitely keeps you on your toes! None of that matters, though, when your baby looks you right in the eye, smiles and reaches out to touch you and you know that you are one of the most important people in his little life.
