Somehow, we made it back from New York State yesterday, our jeep stuffed to the gills with new baby gear. Intermittent thunderstorms didn’t dampen the beautiful baby shower my mother held for us on the front porch of the house, and we were overwhelmed by the generosity of our family, who brought thoughtful gifts and sage advice. Thank you, everyone.
The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing on the porch, eating too much cake, and visiting with my mother’s brother, who I haven’t seen in years (and who hadn’t met Jen yet). As always, the weekend was too short, and we had to head home to the heat.
