Finally getting around to posting the good pics from our trip to LA. We had two showers while there and Lonan got lots of great gifts... so many that I have spent the last couple of days reorganizing the nursery to make room and getting out thank you cards.

So - we arrived at my mom's Saturday and my niece Chelsea stayed with us a couple of days. Grandpa Tom came by to meet Lonan.

Sunday my dad, his wife Bonnie & my brother and sister-in-law Julie came over for brunch.

Thursday our friend Cynthia hosted a baby shower for us at her home in Woodland Hills.

Lonan, my mom and I were the first to arrive.

The guests were Doug's former colleagues from Cedars-Sinai, some of our oldest and dearest friends.

Cynthia's husband BJ and his sister Bonnie made a Louisiana feast for us. Mmmmm. And Lonan made the rounds...

with Mary Clare...

and Edna....

and Tom.
Friday we went to see my grandmother again. We also visited on Wednesday, her 96th birthday.

Friday night Marc and Edie had us over for dinner. Their son Billy was home for the summer.

Saturday morning.. meeting more family. My mom's sister Linda and her husband Michael..

Aunt Ludy...

and Aunt Melody.

Saturday afternoon my brother hosted a shower at his house and Lonan got to meet still more family and friends.

Nana, my sister-in-law Julie's grandmother..

Aunt Kathi...

Aunt Teri..

My cousin Nancy and her husband Frank..

and lots o' kids. My old colleagues from KCOP Dawn and Jodi came with their husbands and children.. it was great to see them again.
An action packed week with Lonan at the center. He was a sweet, happy baby as always and slept almost the entire drive home.

Must protect ourselves from the sun.

Sahara Update

Just after 5p and it's cooled to a pleasant 134 degrees... Chelsea took the boys outside for some fresh air. Ok it's not really that hot but we live in San Francisco now and have very thick blood.

Hunkered Down in LA

Well, the San Gabriel valley burbs to be exact. And it's hot.. Africa hot as my cousin Nancy says. We're staying mostly indoors during the day, although we did venture out for dim sum for lunch. Having a lovely time at my mom's house. My niece Chelsea is staying also and is SO good with Lonan. He slept with them in my mom's room last night and I got to sleep in.. woohoo!

The drive down as great.. the boy and the dog both slept most of the way. We made one stop in Sticksville for a bottle and gas.. otherwise drove straight through and made it in 7 hours total. Lonan was a little cranky the last hour, but so were Larrabee and I.

Yesterday my dad and Bonnie came over for brunch as well as my brother and sister-in-law. Last night we went to introduce Lonan to my 96 year old grandmother... pics of everything are on the digicam which I am too lazy to figure out how to download to the laptop.. I'll do a massive picture dump when we get home next week.

Just had a bath in Grandma's sink.

Tummy Time with Larrabee

What's that kid up to now?
I'd better investigate.

Oh Lord, crying again.

Is there anything I can do to help?

I smell dog breath.

That's better.

Sleepy Monday

Tired this morning... still sleeping through the night though. I gave Lonan a bottle at 11p and he slept til 630a.. Daddy had morning duty and put him in bed with me when they were done. A lazy day today.. didn't take shower til 3 and our only outing was a walk to the store.
