It was mostly a relaxing day today.
Starting with his 18 month checkup at Dr. Wong’s.
21 pounds 2 oz (15 percentile) and 33.75 inches tall (30th percentile)
1/2 inch growth for head circumference.
But the most painful moment was for his hep shot.
So we gotta add a fun factor for the day.
Aiden loved sitting in the wagon with Emma.
After this experience he will asks us to buckle him up when he is on grocery carts.
He is more interested sitting here than playing at the park.
Often times finding his way back to the wagon.
But he did put in a little exercise.
Run, Aiden, run!
Aiden is active but for now, not much of a runner.
Unless he doesn’t want you to hold his hands……
This is definitely Dr. Wong approved.
Less TV and cell phone activity.
Will he be as active as Emma later on?
Even though I don’t consider Aiden to be mellow anymore.
Emma was super cute as usual!
But Aiden doesn’t quite know how to play with her just yet.
Maybe in a few months.
By the time we got to the park it was about 8 pm.
Good thing it gets dark later in the day during this time of year.
Sweet Emma is more willing to play with Aiden this time.
Every time she chased anyone she would say they are too fast and she can’t catch up to them.
Whereas Aiden was not in any kind of chasing mood.
He has his eye on the wagon!
Aiden had given Emma an acorn.
But pretty soon Aiden dropped it.
One thing he enjoyed was that we weren’t constantly holding onto his hand.
Field of green – that’s freedom!
I was waiting for him to run along with Emma.
But this was the closest it got to.
It didn’t really happen as he doesn’t quite get the game of chase.
But Cindy and Emma always tried to get Aiden to join in.
Aiden didn’t quite want to walk…except to get closer to the wagon.
We tried a few times to get him to run around more.
But we finally gave up.
That’s not what he feels like doing at the time.
But this was a great experience for Aiden.
He had a lot of fun and good learning too!
Even though Aiden was ready to go, Emma still had plenty of energy.
We enjoyed watching Emma have fun.
Encore fun for Emma.
I don’t even know if I have energy to spin Aiden around like that.
Gonna have to try it out one day before he gains more weight.
Emma wanted to keep playing.
We stayed about a half hour at the park.
It was getting dark so we headed back.
One of Aiden’s favorite activity – chair transportation.
Emma was absolutely wonderful, sharing her yakult with us.
Before she gave Galen the last yakult in her hand, she ask Cindy for one more yakult. Smart!
More chair transportation.
He wasn’t the least bit shy this time.
One of Aiden’s favorite thing: kitchen toy sets!
And of course nosy Aiden went to check out food!
Stealing Emma’s banana.
I think he finished it all up for her.
Guess he didn’t have enough food for dinner.
Emma is so sweet.
She went to give Aiden a big hug before her bath time.
She caught Aiden off guard.
He lost his balance a little but the moment was super cute.
Time to go bye bye, but Aiden wasn’t ready to leave.
