First parent's night out! Peggy, Marv, Kevin, Ashley and Max Conway graciously volunteered to babysit Keegan tonight so that Angus and I could go out for a date. It was absolutely wonderful. The books all say wait for six weeks before leaving the kid, and today is Keegan's six week birthday - we didn't waste any time. We went to Alamo Drafthouse to see Pirates of the Carribbean (we had intended to see it the weekend Keegan was born, but obviously those plans were cancelled). We ate well, I had a glass of wine, Angus a beer or two, and we both had dessert. Best of all, we were completely at ease that Keegan was in good hands at the Conways. And the bonus? The picture above shows Angus feeding Keegan the rest of the bottle of pumped milk that we left the Conways to use in my absence. So, Angus even got to feed Keegan today, where I've always had to do it before. What a great night! Thanks again to the Conway family. You guys are super stars! Posted by Picasa

Have I told you my mom is crazy? All these crazy faces she makes trying to get me to smile.  Posted by Picasa

Who's the man? I'm the man! Also, note my "half-smile." I'm not giving up a full smile yet, but I'm starting to try.  Posted by Picasa

Cozy in the boppy. What did people do before the boppy? Posted by Picasa

Keegan reading his first book, a very cool gift from Great Aunt Linda and Uncle Alan. As the name implies, there are white objects on a black background - a bird, flower, buttons, teddy bear. Keegan's favorite seemed to be the sailboat.  Posted by Picasa

Mom! Did you see this picture? Posted by Picasa

Happy little reader.  Posted by Picasa

After the Astros game, we headed to Crystal Beach for a couple nights to visit with our family from Canada that was visiting for a couple days, Aunt Lorraine, Maribeth and Jessice. Aunt Lorraine has 11 kids, and 25 grandchildren, and she lent her experienced hands in keeping Keegan calm. In this picture, Maribeth took at turn with Keegan. She lulled him to sleep easily.  Posted by Picasa

Aunt Brigid enjoyed holding Keegan when he wasn't fussy. Doesn't it seem like it was just yesterday you were holding Marianne and Brendan? Posted by Picasa

Cousin Brendan took a turn with the diaper duty. He did such a good job we asked him to come to Katy for a visit next week! Posted by Picasa

Aunt Lorraine sewed a blanket for Keegan. It is really sweet. The duck in the middle of the blanket can be removed from under the mother's wing so that Keegan can tote it around with him.  Posted by Picasa

Keegan's first Astros game, and apparently our first family photo since his birth. We are all decked out in Astros gear, even Keegan.  Posted by Picasa

The Astros didn't win, but at least Keegan got to see Lance Berkman score a home run.  Posted by Picasa

Grandma and Keegan at the Astros game. Keegan really enjoyed all the noise.  Posted by Picasa

Mac with Keegan's toys. He's getting pretty good at stealing them. I'm sure Keegan doesn't mind sharing.  Posted by Picasa

Mac left room for someone to sit with him. Any takers? Posted by Picasa
