|Aidan putting his Steeplechase winnings|
in his Clemson Bank.
Since Aidan has begun to roll, he has always decided to roll left, even screaming when he gets stuck and does not roll right. However, this week, he decided that he wanted to roll right. He also decided that playing on his stomach isn't so bad, and I fear that learning to crawl is on the horizon. We're not ready! The house needs baby proofing and keeping up with a roller is already a tall task. Aidan is also learning to soothe himself to sleep. He cries less and falls asleep sooner...most nights. He still wakes several times a night, but he doesn't need much to fall asleep.
I have introduced Aidan to apples and squash, which were bought fresh from a local farm that doesn't use pesticides, which is great for apples since they are the worst for pesticides. Additionally, I reintroduced Aidan to sweet potatoes and he loved them. I have also given him some whole pieces of fresh banana, avocado, and steamed sweet potato to gum on (or is it gummy gum?), and he enjoyed it. So I plan to give him less purees and more "solid" type food.
Aidan has kept busy playing with lots of toys, swinging, playing in his pool, and going out to events such as the Aiken Steeplechase. He was not interested in the horse racing, though he was greatly fascinated by the fence and the badge that we wear into the event. I guess it's the small things that are entertaining.
In other news, I thought I had avoided the hair loss, but lately, I have noticed hair balls in my laundry, a lot of hair in the sink and shower, and my hair brush having to be cleaned more often. Ugh, I liked my thick, glowy hair...why must it fall out?! I am still taking prenantals, and I thought this would prolong the loss, but I guess all good things must come to an end.
