We just got back from a fantastic long weekend in North Carolina to celebrate Uncle Nick’s career achievements (pictures here). We’re all VERY proud of Nick’s accomplishments and we were so glad that we could be there to celebrate with him. Nicky was a super trooper and was a perfect angel on the long flights and at all of the late night meals and the various graduation events. I think he was just in seventh heaven with all the attention he was getting. He showed off all of his skills crawling all over uncle Nick’s beautiful house, eating teething crackers and sharing them with the moose sock puppet we brought on the trip, practicing pulling up and getting ready to cruise, and doing some very serious analytical work practicing hanging his toys on the curtain rods. We had such a good time seeing everyone!
