Mr. Aidan joins the family
Hello everybody! Just woke up (if you call not sleeping a wink due to that whole new baby keeps you up all night kind of thing) for Aidan's first full day at home. He joined us on the 5th at 3:33PM central standard time at FT Hood Texas. He was 7 pounds 4 ounces, and 20.25" inches long. He started out with a bang, hitting his high notes early. Its quite possible he'll be a great singer one day. After 1 night and 1 full day in the hospital learning how to eat and poop, and also learning that the hospital is a place where people insist on waking you up to poke and prod you, he managed to settle in to a nice sleep (notice how I said he got sleep- Mom and Dad learned how to be zombies and dad can now deftly change poopy diapers with one eye open in the pitch black, not sure if he is actually awake or dreaming [I was not dreaming]).
Ok, so here we are at home. Doing nothing (which is pretty awesome). Me, Kate, and Aidan, with Babci (Grandma for you non-Polish types) taking tons and tons of pictures. Please feel free to call and bother us at any time. Check some of the first pictures below.
