It's been awhile...

Yes, I know I have been lax in my posting, however, the two people who actually READ this blog were visiting me last week, so I don't feel too bad.
We had Baby Convention 2008 at my house! Cameron, Isabella, and RJ got to do some serious baby bonding, while their parents tried to have normal people conversations. We actually got much more sleep than I was anticipating, and the visit was relatively temper tantrum free!
The most adult conversation I had during this 4 day love fest was in the rear-view mirror with Jennifer on our way to the airport. Our babies and her husband had succumbed to the white noise of the car on the freeway, and we had a whole 20 minute talk!! CRAZY.
This was our first visit with all of the little ones, and it wasn't bad. One thing that helped is that our kids are all small enough that they don't need real entertainment or activities planned around them. The biggest problem we had was navigating through stores/restaurants with three babies in strollers and various types of baby carriers. You get some mean looks when you walk into a restaurant with 5 adults and 3 babies. At least none of our kids threw Cheerios on the floor! There was a little screaming, and some boobs flopped out in public, but nothing to warrant dirty looks. We're only human after all.
I think I would go so far as to say that Baby Convention should be an annual event. Especially if RJ is going to vie for Isabella's attentions. He's just now figuring out that he has hands people, he's really not into the ladies yet!

Ooohhh...sign me up for the 08-09 convention!

Funny how adult conversation gets kicked to the curb when kids are around, huh? :-)
