The Gentle Test

Today, we took Aiden to meet baby Jude. Our friends Becca and Paul welcomed Jude into the world only 5 days ago. This was the first time Aiden had ever seen a newborn baby. It was quite amusing watching Aiden observe him. He thought Jude was fascinating and just kept checking him out. Jude sneezed a few times and Aiden thought that was so hilarious. He even gave Jude a kiss and was very gentle around him. It was so cute.

I was so glad to see Aiden respond to Jude the way he did. Jason really wants to have another baby and I do too but the timing just isn't right. I also had some concerns about bringing another baby into our "situation" but after talking to many friends about it and actually seeing Aiden around a baby, how he behaves with his playdates and how he interacts with other kids in general, I'm starting to consider the possibility of, one day, adding to our little family.

Rachel, I can't believe that the weekend is already over. When I met you for the first time, it seemed like we had been friends forever. No need to break the ice or feelings of awkwardness. It was as if we were old friends coming together for a beautiful, miraculous, unforgettable weekend. Can't wait to see you, Jason, and Aiden soon!!!! I love you guys.
