Sitting Handsome...

After a few weeks of toying around with the idea, Aidan has officially been sitting on his own for about a week! We test drove his new sitting ability at the grocery store, and he has graduated to sitting in the cart like a big boy :) He has a new cart seat cover (mom and dad are a little phobic of Aidan eating cart germs) and just loves to look around at all the other kids and the colors he sees in the store. He is also VERY close to crawling, it's been about three weeks of rocking and another week of essentially what boils down to throwing himself backwards (when he's trying to go forward).

6 month birthday!

We can't believe it, but Aidan is 6 months old! He gets cuter and cuter every day (we may or may not be biased). We've been neglecting our posting responsibilities lately, and we apologize. We hope these new photos will help make up for it!

We've been busy, with Kate traveling for work and spending her first nights away from Aidan since he was born (yes, there were some tears). Brian did a great job of taking care of Aidan and waking up for the middle of the night feedings. They are starting to become less frequent, and we continue to hope that a full nights sleep is not too far away!

Brian and Aidan traveled to meet Kate in Albuquerque while she was out there for a conference, and we all met up with Aunt Karen and Uncle Wayne in Santa Fe and enjoyed a great visit!

Uncle Liam stopped by on his way home from California and spent some time with us as well. Aidan loves playing with his uncle LiLi!

This past weekend, we traveled to Dallas to see Aidan's godfather Jared and his wife Jenn who were in town to visit her brother. We don't get to see them very often, so we were excited to be able to catch them while they were in Texas :)

In developmental news, Aidan is getting closer to sitting up on his own (he currently last for a few seconds before listing to one side or the other) as well as crawling (he is doing a sort of crab-walk type move, and can scoot a couple of feet by inching along like a worm). He is extremely proficient at rolling, and still loves anything Elmo!
