Aiden Daniel // 3 Months

March 10, 2013

Aiden 1

Dear Aiden,

You are three months old today.

It’s hard to believe it’s been three months already, time has gone fast. At the same time, it seems like a lifetime. Life has felt so rich and deep and new and I can’t imagine life without you anymore, not at all.


You have gone from having a hard time focusing with your newborn eyes to taking in the world at every chance you get. You’ve gotten so much more independent, going from needing to be held all the time to happily spending time by yourself on your play mat, swatting at your frog toy and grabbing its legs.


You love being pulled up by your hands so you can practice holding your head up, and practice sitting and standing. It will be a little while before you can do these things on your own (especially the last two), but you love to try. You love it when daddy plays “running baby” and “dancing baby” with you and you often squeal when you get tickled. You love being carried in a carrier. You love bath time.


You are all smiles when you wake up and see me or your daddy, even in the middle of the night. It makes getting up to change your diaper at night a lot more fun than I ever thought it would be. I’ve never tried drugs in my life, but I imagine that getting high might feel something like the way I feel when you smile at me – my brain lights up like a Christmas tree and nothing else in the world seems to matter. And I want more of it…all the time.



You look more and more like a little boy to us but you really are so tiny and helpless still. I love seeing the little person that you are, to get to watch you grow and to get to take care of you in the process.


You are so loved, little man, may you always, always know that.

Your mama

    I second what your sister said! I must tell you, they just get cuter and cuter as each month passes. To watch them explore, learn and grow is so amazing! Aiden is so precious Jadyn, such a lucky boy to have you guys as his parents, the love shows even through the pictures. Oh, and your hair is getting longer! You look stunning as always.

    PS, you should change your profile picture to that last one of you two looking in the mirror! It represents you now as a mom :)
