Nana and Papa's Visit

Cliff, Aidan, and I had a special treat this week. My parents came for a week to visit us from Kansas. I could hardly wait for them to get here. They booked their flights for a week after Aidan was born because typically with you first baby you are late but since Aidan was a week and a half early, he was already two weeks old when they got here last Friday. They leave Thursday morning and I know it will be a hard goodbye. We are planning a two week trip to the midwest in April, however, to see both sides of the family so that will be something to look foreward to. We haven't done anything too exciting but I think that has been good. They have spent the majority of the time hanging out at the house and holding Aidan. I have never heard the phrase "I get to hold him first" so much:) They took us grocery shopping and my mom has been on a cooking frenzy stocking us up with meals for the next couple of weeks. They also babysat for us yesturday so that Cliff and I could go on our first date since we had him. We are so thankful to have the family that we do and know that Aidan will be loved to the fullest. The next step is to meet Grandma and Grandpa Mullen. We are also very excited for this visit. Here are some pics of our week.
