I suppose pretty much every weekend could be classified as "food-filled," but this particular weekend we had meals with friends both days.
Saturday, Eleri took her first trip out of state. We drove up to Maryland to have lunch with a friend of Tom's from Caltech and his wife. Not that the little lass noticed much of the journey and outing; she slept very nearly the whole time. Soren, on the other hand, did not fall asleep in the car and ended up going napless for the day. He's been taking shorter naps lately, and he wasn't even burned out with exhaustion by bedtime. Please keep napping, Sir! My sanity requires it!
Since our brunch plans from last weekend were derailed by Snowmageddon, we rescheduled for this weekend. Max & Agnes came over Sunday evening, and we had brinner (brunch for dinner). Bacon, French toast, steak with grilled peppers, onions & mushrooms, and mimosas. Tasty! And it was nice to visit with our friends; it had been a while since we were all able to get together.
Soren was Mr. Sociable, showing off his ever-expanding vocabulary and bringing books out of his room so Max could read to him. Eleri, as is her custom, mostly slept, but she was awake for a little while. She's growing like a weed, that girl. At just over 5 weeks old, she's no longer swimming in the 3-month clothes, and most of the newborn stuff is much too small now. All that eating and sleeping is working out well for her, it seems! Hehe.
