It’s a cold, snowy night in Madison, one fitting for the last day of November. We’re wrapping up our Thanksgiving visit with Lisa’s parents, and will be heading back to Minneapolis tomorrow. I’d planned on calling some relatives here before heading down, but last week was kind of crazy for me, and, as it turned out, we didn’t really have much time anyway. Hopefully we’ll be able to connect with them before the holidays are over.
Overall, it’s been a good trip. Mathias has finally gotten over the ear infections and emerging molars that have made him a very cranky baby over the past two weeks, and for the past few days has been undeniably chipper. He’s been very observant lately, and it seems like he may have transferred to a new developmental stage while flying under the cover of sickness. He’s walking again–he more or less took a break from that when he was sick–and as of tonight is climbing stairs. (Thankfully, the inside of our apartment doesn’t have any of them.)
It’s good that he’s been in a good mood, as he’s been getting passed around a lot. He met some of Lisa’s old neighbors on Friday, and then spent some time goofing off with friends of Lisa’s and mine today.
Aside from that, it was more or less typical Thanksgiving stuff: We had lots of good food, got to visit friends and family, did a fair amount of shopping, and wired a home for broadband. I’ve spent a lot of time watching the horrible events going on in Mumbai, and will probably have something to write about that in the near future, but not now.
And with that, I’m off for the evening. (One of the downsides of having a healthy baby is early mornings.) Happy Cyber Monday to all of you.
