Still here.

Just had a couple weeks of running, being frantic, flying, visiting, planning, celebrating. stuff.

I did my little brother's (formerly...)wedding video/slideshow, and it kicked my trash. I don't have a DVD burner, so I tried taking it to Utah with me to work on it there, and it all fell to pieces because I didn't save it all properly. I had about a day and a half to basically redo the whole thing and I just about died. But now it is over and done with and we are all happy and my little brother is happily married and that is SO WEIRD. But wonderful. I love seeing him happy.

Then I had a day or two to do everything I've been thinking I needed to do while I was in Utah, which turned out to be about 4 days worth of errands. BUT despite my harried-ness I had a great visit with the fam, and Oliver looooved all the attention and playing with his cousin.

In fact, he loved it so much that he has been a pain in the rear since we got back home. Well, not really. Only at bedtime. The past 3 nights it has taken 2 hours to get him to sleep. He started crawling out of his crib (and hurting himself) and HATES the idea of being in it. Lots of screaming. Not fun. Where did this come from, really?

While Sir O and I were away, Mr Renn's parents have been here visiting. (Hence Sir O is really not yet experiencing a normal level of attention) They've been all around, visited D.C. and braved our laundry room. This morning they all went Shady-Maple-ing without me because I had a quarterly primary activity. (Mr Renn sent me this camera-phone-picture so I wouldn't feel too left out)

And that's a good portion of what's been up. Clearly I'm forgetting large bits of it, but that's what happens when you get behind in your documenting.

Happy Mother's Day Eve, all!

Traveling is always so crazy. I hear you. Yikes! Sir O crawling out of his crib! That is not good news. I hope things can get back to normal for you soon.

OH wow, crawling out the crib IS a bummer. My sympathies and prayers for you and Oliver's safety. Yikes! And Happy Mother's Day (Eve) to you Emily.
