Everything Gets Claps...

Aaron's new favorite thing to do is clap his hands. He started doing this just yesterday even though he's been banging objects together for quite a while. I guess he has figured out that he can make noise even without stuff in his hands. It is pretty hilarious what deserves Aaron applause (as well as frustrating sometimes). Some examples:
  • Daddy going to work
  • Daddy coming home
  • Peaches
  • Reagan barking at the T.V.
  • Peas (???)
  • Mommy going into his bedroom to lay him down for the millionth time and telling him to go to sleep (i.e. the frustrating part)

It is very exciting to watch him do something so human-like, for lack of a better description. He really has grown out of the newborn "blob" stage as my sister-in-law calls it, where he doesn't do much more than lay there and look at me. Hopefully waving bye-bye and blowing kisses are soon to come!

Baby's First Spring Break

This past week, Bill, Aaron and I flew down to San Antonio to visit Bill's grandparents on his dad's side. His parents also drove down to see us. We had a great time! I was so proud to introduce Aaron to his great-grandparents and we were blessed to have FOUR generations of Q's in one room at the same time. The first night we were there, we had a great dinner and Aaron's great-aunt and great-uncle, Uncle Bob and Aunt Sue, came over and visited with us. The next day we did a little shopping downtown at El Mercado de San Antonio and visited the Alamo. The third day, we stopped and played at a little playground then walked through the San Antonio Botanical Garden. It was so much fun taking Aaron on a little mini-vacation and he did great! He is definitely going to become a seasoned traveler!

You Gotta See These Pictures!

My sister Bethanie finally bought a digital camera and has been going crazy taking pictures of my nephew Stiehl, who is now almost three months old, and my niece Emilie, who is nine years old. The pictures Bethanie took are SO awesome, you have to see them. Click the link below or to your left to visit her Blog.

More Teeth!

Aaron has more teeth coming in! I believe all four of his top front teeth are poking through. You can definitely see three of them; the fourth one is not as easy to see unless you're prying his mouth open and are able to look directly at it. So cool!

Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it so that you can see his new teeth better!

My Precious

We are now four days into the Lenten season and I'm proud to say that I have stuck by my vows to give up something meaningful to me in order to grow closer to Christ during this period. That something meaningful was soda, specifically this:

It might sound rather lame to whine about giving up soda when people are starving all over the world, but this was the best I could come up with. And trust me, I'm definitely missing it! If anything, I need the caffeine fix! I am drinking much more water, however, so this will be good for me in the long run in that respect as well. Pray for me! Only six more weeks until Easter!

Pictures From Yesterday

Aaron waiting for his morning bottle. I can't get over how old he looks in this picture!
How I keep finding him in his crib in the morning. I imagine it's going to need to be lowered soon.
