Friday...shot day!

Well, it was Aidan's 2 month doctor appointment today and he got 3 shots! Ouch.... but he was a trooper and stopped screaming as soon as he went back to Mommy! He even fell asleep in his car seat on the 4 minute ride home and has been sleeping ever since! Hope he is not too fussy when he wakes up, but we are prepared for it. Oh, he is 11 pounds and 5 ounces and 22 1/5 inches tall! He is in the normal percentile range (just above 50% in both!).
Checked on both Mom's on the phone today.. since both have things going on. My mom put her back out a few days ago so I had a nice long chat with her. My MIL is also going through a tough time right now, so I had a nice chat with her and she seems to be doing well. We can't wait for her to come up in a few weeks and see our little guy!
For crafty things, I did get a bunch of cards made the other day - thank you's and birthday cards and they are off in the mail. Sorry, completely forgot to take pictures of them before sending them out. I really liked the birthday one for my niece - it was beach/ocean with a sand dollar and little shells dotting the sand. I may have to do another like that again sometime. The thank you's were baby themed in blue and yellow with baby footprints on the cover.
My 8 year old niece S, had been talking about a 'P is precious' book that she was working on for Aidan....well, I thought it was a scrap book she had and was making a page of pictures for her newest cousin.... Nope! It is a cute little book for pictures she bought for us with her own money. She filled it with pictures of Aidan with each of his cousins holding him and then some pictures of him I had given her with fun stamps spelling out his name. Can you tell she loves her new little cousin! She got a special thank you card for doing that!
This weekend is our guild's quilt show. I am working for a little bit tomorrow and can't wait to see everyone's quilts... and of course visit the vendor booths. Will probably hit Joanns Fabrics while I am out since guiterman's thread is on sale this weekend.... I need to stock up a bit for all the sewing projects I have lined up to do.
Well, he is still sleeping 2+ hours after his shots, so I should try to get a few things done before he wakes up!
