Sea World & Sesame Street Live! at Fort Hood

4th of July!

Mom and Dad returned from Fort Polk to pick up Mr. Aidan from Plymouth and visit family! Godmommy Colleen made the trip down from Boston to spend the day with us and bring Aidan on his first trip to the beach (fyi.. he did not care for the cold Long Beach water!)

Texas Bluebonnets

We snapped these photos of Aidan back in April - but those outside the region might want to see the little man visiting with the state flower. Sorry we are so late with updating the blog!

Washington, D.C.

We recently took advantage of an opportunity to visit the White House in Washington, D.C. for the annual easter egg roll. While there, we got to spend time visiting with Mema Murphy, Uncle John, Aunt Mary Paule, and Godmommy Colleen and her family! It was a whirlwind couple of days, but we managed to take in several of the Smithsonian museums, a double-decker bus ride of the city, and the national zoo! We hope you enjoy our pictures of the easter egg roll!!

Aidan - 1, Pnemonia - 0

We wanted to let everyone know that our tough little man pulled through and Aidan is now recovering at home. Aidan became very sick on Monday and was admitted to the hospital with bilateral intrastatial bacterial pnemonia and Sepsis. Dad did a great job of bringing him in and making sure that he got the care he needed. The little man was having quite a tough time, with difficulty breathing, low blood pressure/reduction of blood flow to the extremeties, a temp over 103 degrees, and a white cell count over 18,000. He was a real champ with multiple chest x-rays, blood draws, urine samples, iv sites, oxygen and breathing treatments. He did not care to be hooked up to anything, but eventually realized those darn nurses would continue to re-attach him to the various devices and succumbed to the pressure and gave up. He's doing so much better now, but still has awhile to go before the full infection has run its course. We have a few more tests to be run later in the week, but wanted to share that he is now recuperating at home. Thank you all for keeping our brave little man in your thoughts this past week!

The Holidays

Aidan's First Birthday!

Me with all my fun presents!

Playing catch with my Handy Manny Ball!

Checking out my new basketball & hoop!

My very own Sesame Street Cake :)

My personal Elmo Cake - just for me so I can make a mess!

Ooh! Balloons!

Not so sure about this cake thing...

I think I like it! (At least the making a mess part)

Still figuring out the taste...

You want me to eat the whole thing????
