We're back

Olivia has proven to be a pretty good traveller so far. She slept most of the way to New Braunfels, timing her wake-and-cry for feeding to within five minutes of a rest stop. She was a bit more awake, and a little bit cranky, on the way back, but we're talking maybe a 1.0 on the baby Richter scale.

As expected, my dad held her most of the time he was with us. A few other relatives got brief opportunities, and we took pictures quickly before he changed his mind. Olivia mostly slept in his arms. She was a bit wound up at the hotel last night, after several hours of stimulation and noise, and we were a bit afraid that she wouldn't let us or our wallmates get any sleep, but she settled down in a reasonable amount of time and slept normally. Have I mentioned lately that she's about the easiest baby to take care of you've ever known? Don't ask me how we got this lucky, and don't ask me why I'm pressing my luck in this fashion.

Anyway, I'm catching up now. More later.

You're still at the age when things change from week to week and month to month. So, good luck with it. We're going to try our first air trip with Annelisa - Nate was and is a great traveller, though now his legs are long enough to hit the seat in front, so he may be tempted.

How's Harry taking her?

Harry is adjusting. Tiffany says that now when Olivia cries, Harry comes up to her, as if to ask if she plans on doing anything about that. Once she starts on solid food, he'll be her bestest friend.
