big boy bed

I finally got the mattress for Aidan's bed. I'm getting ready to put it together and set up in his room. I can't believe that Aidan is big enough to sleep in a twin bed. I miss his little car bed that he slept in before the accident.

He's gotten so big. I also just bought him new fall/winter clothes because he doesn't have clothes to fit his chunky butt. I have to say that I LOVE Target for kids clothes, especially play clothes. They are cheap, but pretty well made. I also found some stuff on sale at Old Navy. I'm all about the sales and clearance items. When I have time I like to go to thrift stores and consignment shops to dig around. You can really find a lot of things when you have the time to browse around.

Anyway, we're all doing well. Aidan is doing a lot better. I think I figured out why he was getting so upset and crying so much. It looks like he's been cutting his molars. He has never tolerated cutting teeth well. With Evan, we hardly ever notice he's got some coming in until they're already through completely.

I'll post some pictures of Aidan's new bed once I get it put together. I've been keeping myself busy making afghans, so I haven't been on the computer much.

I hope that everyone is doing well. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Have a great weekend and please pray for the people along the Gulf Coast that are being affected by Ike.

Hi Erin!
Wow, a big boy bed! Is Evan gonna get his car bed?
How is Aidan doing without his trach?

Congrats to Aidan on the big move! Glad to hear he's feeling better. Both of mine were monsters when it came to cutting those molars!

Yes, Evan will eventually get the car bed. We put it in the garage for him. I couldn't bear to get rid of it once we realized that Aidan would need a crib again when he got home from the hospital. I found it at a yard sale and got a steal on it.

Aidan is doing wonderfully without the trach. He is maintaining his O2 sats in the high 90's or at 100, and he seems to be resting better. It's nice not having to suction him all the time.

I'll make another post tomorrow and post pictures once I finish cleaning his room.

Erin - Great to hear that Aidan is doing well, except for the molars. . . It sounds like every inch of him is growing! Belinda

Can't wait to see photos of his big boy bed! We're praying literally every day for the fella. Glad he's doing so well without the trach, it must feel so much better. Throw an afghan in the photo of the bed, we'd love to see your work.

I loved the sound of that laughter, it brought lots of tears to grandma's eyes and lots of happiness to her heart. I love you all and can't wait to see you in November. Lot's of hugs and kissess for all. grandma in Oklahoma .
