Aidan's first checkup

We took Aidan to his first checkup today in Ottumwa. He's really healthy and growing.

He weighs 10 pounds, 1.5 ounces, so he's grown a lot since he was born. He sure has a healthy appetite. The doctor said he's just doing great.

He really likes to take rides in the car. I never thought he would like the car seat, but he really seems comfy in it and he just falls asleep.

Congratulations on your little boy! I have two boys myself--one used to scream in the car seat, so enjoy Aidan's more relaxed approach...

I am a co-leader of the central Iowa chapter of Attachment Parenting International. Our monthly support group meetings in West Des Moines probably would not be very convenient for you, but we do have an e-mail loop where people can share comments, questions, advice and concerns about any aspect of attachment parenting:

Prepare for Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenting
Feed with Love and Respect
Respond with Sensitivity
Use Nurturing Touch
Engage in Nighttime Parenting
Provide Consistent and Loving Care
Practice Positive Discipline
Seek Balance in Personal and Family Life

Drop me a line at desmoinesdem@yahoo.com if you and/or your partner are interested in joining our e-mail loop. It's free, and it's a nice community.
