I am not sure, maybe your computer was getting used to having xCode? Haha I doubt that is the reason. But I am glad that your computer is back to normal booting time.

With SSDs, when using something large like xcode especially after just downloading it, it takes alot of room in the cache quite possibly replacing some boot files. As your MBA is using the boot files more and more each time you boot, the more likely the boot files will stay in the cache meaning quicker boot time.
Hope this makes sense, i'm feeling very under the weather so can't concentrate very well lol.
