Busy Times

What can I say about the long silence except that the end of April and all of May are just very busy times at the Robbins nest (thanks Jason for the great idea!) I've been working more, had wonderful visits from out-of-town family, both Nik and Reilly have turned a year older, Eric has become a regular road warrior for work and we've had more than a few dinner parties for friends and friends of friends. Great fun and lots of fabulous memories.

Especially notable was Reilly's first weekend with Grandma and Grampa Bradshaw. I dropped her off Friday night and Eric and I both picked her up on Sunday afternoon, Mother's Day. It was great to have the weekend to have one-on-one time with Eric and it was also cute to see him calling the grandparents to check up on how Reilly was doing! Of course, she was showered with love and goodness and great fun getting kisses and hugs from Gramma and Grampa. I have to take a minute and just share how well prepared Mom is. I was super impressed! Reilly's visit was sort of a last minute decision and so I hadn't come prepared with Reilly's usual assortment of "mommy worry" gear. I call it that because I'm sure, had I more time to prepare, I would have thrown in everything but the kitchen sink..."just in case." Needless to say, Mom had everything she needed on hand...bottle, diapers, formula, portable crib and even splurged on a Sunday dress to take Riles to church. I have the best mother ever and Reilly has a wonderful Gramma. Thanks again Moma and Dad..for everything that weekend.

Now I just need to plan the trip to New York that's coming up in about three weeks. Holy Cow! Three weeks? I gotta get going!
