Long time, no see
Sorry for the radio silence on this end, folks. We had a crazy week, a week on the East Coast, and then a sick week, so we’re just getting back up to speed now.
Our trip “out East” was a whirlwind, and very fun. We visited my Mom, Joe’s sister’s family, many friends, Joe’s parents and his brother’s family. All of this in addition to the fact that I was there for work and Joe put our house on the market and wrote a proposal for his work. CRAZY. It was during this time, also, that Leo decided that sleep was optional at best, so we were operating large machinery in a compromised state, to say the least.
Much to the annoyance of the finance people at work who deal with my expense reports, we drove. That made it easier to do the visiting rounds, but not “easier” as such. Leo is a great road-tripper, thankfully. He mostly sleeps, looks out the window, plays with toys, or sips on a bottle. Very chill. Hotels, on the other hand, he HATES. I don’t blame him, really. The hotel cribs look rather uncomfortable, compared to his crib at home, and they look like a jail cell or a zoo cage. I wouldn’t want to sleep there, either. He did much better in his crib at Grandma and Grandpa’s and his pack-n-play at Aunt Beth’s.
During this trip, Leo also gave us another day care gift, this time respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Lovely. Coughing, congestion, aching, fever. JUST WHAT I WANTED TO BRING HOME. Thank god for DayQuil and NyQuil.
I have done some baking, so I’ll post some recipes soon for white cake and chocolate cupcakes. In the meantime, I’ll get my act together and find some good photos and video of the boy for you.
