Aaron and his daddy and I spent Thanksgiving this year in Texas visiting Bill's family. We had a great time eating way too much, shopping and even having a family photo taken! Here are some pictures.
Aaron in his cute Thanksgiving outfit. This outfit lasted all of about one hour until he decided to give it his own special rinse.
Grandma and Aaron.
Three generations of Q men - Grandpa, Daddy and Aaron. Where did he get those blue eyes you may ask? Obviously not a Q trait. You would think that he got them from me but, alas, not so much. His eyes are a darker blue than mine and we figured out that they look exactly like Grandma's!

Yesterday, Bill and I took Aaron to see his very first NFL game. The St. Louis Rams played the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field in Seattle. My Rams unfortunately lost 31-16. We had a great time, though, munching on garlic fries (kind of strange but sooo yummy) and clam chowder and being heckled by the Seahawks fans because of our Rams gear. Here are some pictures of our day.
Typical Seattle weather.

Aaron is growing so fast! I am totally amazed at the new things that he does everyday. He has become more interested in his toys now which delights me to no end since we've had them since before he was born! He will grab them, take a look at them and then usually try to find out how they taste! Tummy time is becoming less traumatic and every once in a while, he might even roll over onto his back for you! He is not yet rolling over from his back to his stomach, but I don't think it will be very long. When we feed him, he is now trying to hold the bottle himself. Usually it's a fight to actually keep the bottle in his mouth when he's trying to be so helpful, but at least he's trying! We are not giving him solids just yet. We are going to wait until after our Thanksgiving trip to Texas when we are settled back in at home and will be here for a while. He also is not quite yet displaying some of the cues to show me that he is ready, such as being able to sit upright (he's still pretty wobbly) and good head control (he can hold his head up but I wouldn't call it steady). We have plenty of time, however, since solids are normally started sometime between four and six months. We'll get there! He also is not sleeping completely through the night yet. I usually put him down around 8:30 and he'll sleep until 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning, have a bottle, then go back down until around 7:30. This is pretty great, though, compared to a couple months ago when I was up with him every two hours! The coolest thing that he is doing now, though, is he has started to full-on giggle and laugh! This is why we have kids! It's the best!

Monday was a pretty lazy day in that none of us even changed out of our pajamas. I tackled the MOUNDS of laundry that Bill brought back and we tried to get caught up on our T.V. programs. Here are a few pictures that I took during our lazy day.

This is, I'm sure, the first of many pictures that will be taken of Bill with Aaron in one hand and a beer in the other. This was taken at the Pyramid Alehouse in Seattle, a very good brewery and restaurant that is across the street from Qwest Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks. After lunch there, we went over to the Qwest Field Event Center to the Seattle Auto Show so that we could drool all over the shiny new cars. Incidentally, we will be up there again next weekend to watch my Rams play the Seahawks (A.K.A. the Sea-chickens)!

Aaron with his cute Halloween bear that Lisa gave him (thanks for giving us the one with both arms, dude!)
Trick or Treat! - on my butt.
Pretty Girl Reagan (I mean, Scary Girl!). Reagan has a scarf for every holiday, courtesy of Grandma Q. So cool!
"Hi, I'm Aaron and this here is my pal Reagan!"
Now that's scary!
