6: Bringing Home Baby | We were so excited to bring you home, we couldn't wait for you to meet Nahla and see your new home!
7: You are Growing so fast
8: Mommy & Me | Aiden, When I first found out you were going to be coming into this world I was terrified and so excited.I was terrified because I had no clue how to be a mother, and I was excited because I knew I was meant to learn to become a great one.When you were born it was like my life was just beginning. Everything I thought was important paled in comparison to what I held in my arms. Aiden, I love you, and even though you will have to put up with me learning how to be your mother I promise I will be the best one I could ever be for you. Love always, Mommy
9: Daddy & Me | Daddy & Me | Aiden Robert Geschwill What a wonderful day it was when you were born. I'm the proudest dad in the whole world. You didn't come out running around but I knew it wouldn't be too long before you would crawl, then walk and run! A million things went through my mind and the main one is how much I love you and how excited I am to teach you things and play games with you! Mommy and you are the best things in my life and I love you both with all my heart!
12: Progress | 2 Weeks Old | Only 2 weeks old and your first road trip! We drove 19 hours to Greensboro North Carolina. You did wonderful in the car, slept most of the time. Either daddy or mommy was in the back with you if you weren't sleeping, feeding or changing you. We stayed in a couple hotels and you got a bath in the hotel sink! We went to Greensboro for the Market America international convention. It was a big decision to travel that far with you so soon, but it was an easy decision, Market America is a chance to provide you with the most amazing life. Our first road trip with you was a huge success!
13: First visit from your Wisconsin family! Grandma and aunt Kriss came and stayed for 3 days. Your aunt Dianne and cousin Sean came to visit for a couple hours. Everyone loved holding you, and Grandma and aunt Kriss fought over who got to hold you more.It was wonderful to have them stay with us, we played games and ate good food and stared at you all day long. | 4 Weeks Old
14: 6 weeks old and you are starting to smile so big! You recognize mommy and daddy and smile when we talk and make faces at you. I sit and stare at you all day now, mommy never gets anything done, but that's just fine with me! I try to capture all your smiles, you have such a beautiful smile, it's a wonderful feeling to see you interacting with us! | 6 Weeks Old
15: Our first trip home to visit Grandma. It was very fun to go home for a couple of days, we went at the beginning of the week while daddy was working on a job. We went back a week later and stayed 4 days. Your aunts Anita, and Kriss came over. You also met your cousins Sam, Ginny and NorAnne. It was such a fun time, and everyone got to meet you. | 8-9 Weeks Old
16: Progress | 10 Weeks Old | So 10 weeks we had some big milestones this month. You got all your shots! I was so scared, I didn't want to see you in any pain. I couldn't watch it being done, and you cried and cried for about 1 minute. After that you fell asleep, and you slept most of the rest of the day. The next day you were fine, like nothing ever happened, you are my big boy! Another big thing is you started being able to grab different things, you don't have total control over your hands yet, but you're getting better! Also you are starting to scoot your legs. First time I saw this happen was when you were on your boppy pillow on your tummy and you scooted your legs so much you ended up going over the top onto your head, it was exciting to see you move so much. You also are able to lift your head to a 45 degree angle when on your tummy, you are such a strong boy. Can't wait to see what happens next!
17: Progress | 12 Weeks Old | Life is so exciting these days, every day it seems something new is happening with you. These last weeks you got your first taste of chocolate ice cream. You loved the ice cream, you made the funniest faces.I don't know if it was from the sweetness or from the cold. Daddy fed it to you and got it all over your face! Also you are starting to pick up toys I give you and put them into your mouth, that's a pretty exciting thing, more control over your hands. The most exciting thing was you rolled over!!! You were on your back and starting to rock yourself over and grunt and grunt. You did this loud cry, I called it your war cry, and over you went! You were so excited that now every time I put you on your back you right away roll over onto your belly. Now I'm just working on getting you to keep rolling from your belly back onto your back. You're going to be rolling around the house in no time!!!
18: First Halloween 2011
20: ON TO YEAR NUMBER 2 | 14 Weeks Old | Me and daddy took you to the corn maze, you fell asleep right away, but me and daddy had fun running around with you in the stroller. We carved pumpkins and tried to take cute pictures of you with them, you were not in a mood to sit still. We took you trick or treating with Becky and her kids, then hung out with Bri at her new house for awhile, you slept through most of that also, but it was still so much fun.
21: Progress | 16 Weeks Old | Hunting Season! Daddy and you were up at Grandma's. Daddy was at the shack hunting, and he got an 8 pointer that weekend. You stayed with Grandma and gave her a run for her money :) Mommy was in Appleton for girls shopping weekend. It was very fun, but I missed you and daddy very much. Daddy sent me these pictures, and they were so fun to get. All your aunts, Grandma Annette and mommy kept hoping daddy would send more and more.
22: Trick or Treat!

24: 18 Weeks Old | Thanksgiving at the Geschwills. Your Grandma Dolores always makes so much food, and it's all so good! We spent Thursday through Sunday there. You got to eat some mashed potatoes and also some strawberry jello salad, so you got to enjoy some of the good food also. Mommy helped daddy and grandpa cut up three deer, it was the first time I've ever done anything like that, but it actually was a lot of fun.
25: Progress | 20 Weeks | You are starting to eat real baby food now. You love oatmeal, apples, bananas and peaches. I think most of the time you get more on your face than in your mouth. You are also getting to be so much more independent. You lay around, play with your toys, and can move all around.
26: Progress | 22 Weeks | You are starting to scoot all around and are very close to crawling. I sit on the bed with you, you seem to move more there, maybe because it's softer than the floor. You scoot and roll all over the bed, there is no way I can leave you alone anymore! You have such great hand control now, you grab, pick up and put your bottle in your mouth. You sit and watch me make it, and when I bring it over you grab for it right away and shove it right in your mouth. There have been a couple of times you get your eye instead of your mouth.
