I just finished burping little Aidan, now only a few days past his first month in this world, and spending a little bit of quality quiet time with His Highness. It made me realize just how rarely I get to spend time with him when he’s in such an awake, and more importantly calm, state. It’s always cool to watch him while he’s like this because he’s so alert and curious about his surroundings.
It’s been quite hectic since Aidan was born. Between work, a personal project and running errands, I don’t often get to see Aidan. It’s not that he’s not awake – it’s that he’s usually hungry, cranky and fussy (and usually more than one of those at a time). It’s nice to just be able to hold him, talk to him, sing to him, and enjoy him while we’re both in the mood to appreciate it.
