This week I’ve been doing research on nutrition for Aiden.

P1340321

I learned some interesting facts that is important to Aiden’s diet.

P1340326

Biggest need at this point is iron, as I look at his diet and I don’t think he is getting enough of it.

P1340328

So although Dr. Wong had said to give him very little meat, I’ve decided to up his meat intake.

P1340336

He didn’t like to eat meat before but this week he has shown more interest in meat.

P1340340

Perfect since it’s easiest to absorb iron from meat.

P1340347

I also want to limit his milk intake to about 24 oz only as milk blocks the intake of iron.

P1340355

I’ve been going to sprouts on Wednesday to buy him a variety of fruits.

P1340358

He’s sure loving it!

P1340359

He also loves mushrooms.

P1340360

In a bowl of veggies and mushrooms, he will pick out the mushrooms to eat.

P1340362

His taste buds are just like his Daddie.

P1340363

(Iron man?)

P1340366

But Aiden has more cute and interesting looks.

P1340367

Anyhow, I made him puree using different fruits and he really enjoyed it.

P1340371

So we’ll be doing more of that for him.

P1340373

I’m sure he is like Daddie and likes to try new flavors.

P1340444

Just like how he likes to test Mommie’s temper.

P1340445

It’s much more fun to go to the park altogether.

P1340446

One of us can be at the top and the other can wait for him at the bottom of the slide.

P1340447

Paranoid Mommie I guess but I’m afraid he would run off when he is done sliding and I can’t catch him.

P1340449

Aiden does his little run, but he doesn’t know how to play chase just yet.

P1340452

It’s so cute to see him do his mini run.

P1340453

That movement of his feet and the sound of his laughter is just so captivating.

P1340454

He still cannot jump, but he’s trying now.

P1340473

Sometimes he will stand on top of this one box and just 奀下奀下.

P1340476

And he makes noise like an ape.

P1340503

He is so into cars right now.

P1340521

He loves playing with the steering wheel, he will even pretend he’s honking (maybe I shouldn’t have taught him that :X)

P1340522

I think he needs more time with older kids.

P1340562

At day care where he is at, most of the kids are a lot younger than him now.

P1340577

So I took him to the older side (1.5 – 2.5 years old) to check it out and the teacher thinks he is ready.

P1340582

Iron Man again?

P1340604

Daddie and Aiden have been playing with the LEGO train set before dinner time.

P1340626

One night Daddie totally lost track of time.

P1340642

They were just having too much fun!

P1340650

Aiden has some monster instincts in him.

P1340651

Thank goodness he calms down real fast!

P1340655

2 more teeth came out, it’ll hurt more when he bites. (10 total)

P1340671

Sometimes he will want to take the tracks apart.

P1340694

Daddie told him “no” but he didn’t listen so Daddie put the lego away…….for a day……

P1340713

Aiden is getting better with using the spoon.

P1340716

Daddie said he did very well scooping up his apple/plum puree.

P1340722

But he still makes a total mess.

P1340731

But for some reason he usually rather use his hands.

P1340747

Aiden has learned to turn on the humidifier.

P1340756

It’s not difficult so I am not surprised, but he wasn’t very interested before.

P1340757

What he used to do was shake it until the water poured out and then I would put him in time out.

P1340762

I can’t believe it’s been a year since we moved into our home.

P1340771

At that time he couldn’t even crawl.

P1340774

A new surrounding is now familiar grounds to him.

P1340802

These days he’ll pretend to go to sleep…just to tease Mommie.

P1340855

When we realize Daddie is awake then we go find him.

P1340858

Aiden loves to take over Daddie’s spot.

P1340881

Especially Daddie’s reclining seat.

P1340896

Time for fun at Emma’s 3 year old birthday.

P1340900

The theme is fairy tale – prince and princess

P1340909

Aiden doesn’t have prince attire, so I figure Dinosaur is the closest fairy tale monster.

P1340910

Of course he loves to run around.

P1340914

Walk around is fine too.

P1340921

The weather is nice at the perfect time as it was raining not too long before we left home.

P1340930

I think it’s because there are so many babies at his day care, he would crawl from time to time.

P1340936

That’s part of the reason why I think it’s time for him to be with the bigger kids,  at least part of the time.

P1340938

Anyhow, at the part was a card board house.

P1340954

Aiden got to go in and stick his head out!

P1340956

He just kept running from one door to the other, or to the other windows.

P1340962

Aiden gets his own crown, delivered by the birthday girl.

P1340970

Time to decorate the crown.

P1340978

Daddie and Aiden’s first craft project together!

P1350006

Great job boys!

P1350007

The prince dinosaur.

P1350013

But the crown didn’t fit Aiden.

P1350016

Once he moved….

P1350020

The crown became a neck accessory.

P1350029

But Daddie found a way to fix it.

P1350060

He used the star to tighten the crown and keep it intact.

P1350067

I’m surprised Aiden was willing to wear the crown for so long.

P1350084

He won’t even wear hats for that long.

P1350087

Maybe because all the other kids had their crown on.

P1350095

What a fun day for Aiden!

P1350102

We stayed for a little over 3 hours.

P1350116

He was having so much fun the I fell out of his crown.

P1350118

But at least with the remaining letters you can still sound out his name.

P1350127

Then it was time to eat!

P1350141

Aiden drank about a third of the apple juice.

P1350145

We had delicious food from the Slummin’ Gourmet

P1350197

What a treat! (and beautiful cake)

P1350201

Aiden had 3/4 cups of mixed berries, some pasta, and also some Caprisun too!

P1350208

He had such an appetite!

P1350220

Picture time with Cinderella!

P1350238

But Aiden rather go on his own.

P1350242

He saw Brandon and wanted to play with Brandon.

P1350256

But when Brandon reciprocated the attention back to Aiden….

P1350259

Aiden ran off crying.

P1350261

Aiden was not cooperative during picture time.

P1350272

We had to put him in time out.

P1350282

But Cinderella was so sweet.

P1350289

Although Aiden refused to look at her or talk to her, he did stop crying.

P1350291

I can’t believe Cinderella was so nice to stop by and give him some love too.

P1350292

Then Aiden was all good again.

P1350312

Party favor time since it’s about time to go.

P1350318

What a great party that Auntie Cindy put together for Emma!
