We traveled nearly 600 miles in 5 days. Traffic was awful for parts of it -- we spent nearly 20 hours in the car. We saw about 50 people -- family, friends, and friends of family. Through it all, Little Man was great. We got a lot of compliments on his disposition. Such a sweet, easy baby. So surprisingly fearless with strangers and pets. He warmed hearts with his big smiles, laughed at the antics of all the pets, and rarely fussed. He just needed down-time with The Momma once in a while.
M met the rest of my family, namely my step-sisters and their children.
We also spent some time with my sister, which was much less tense than
it could have been given the hell she put us all through the past couple
of years. It looks like, at 40, she's finally getting herself together.
He also met my mother's brother, and the rest of Annette's family. Her
large Portuguese family :) But then, he's got a large family, himself,
and I'll get to meet all of them in a few weeks, so I guess we're even.
