A Busy Month of Guests: 08/10/06
We have enjoyed Derrick's stay and I'm glad he doesn't mind sleeping up stairs on our couch. Some day we'll hopefully have a proper guest room. Derrick is the first of many guests we'll be having but he's the only overnight guest.
Tomorrow Ian's parents come to visit for the weekend and they will help Ian put together the crib. The recent heat wave prevented us from getting it together sooner. As it is summer, they will be arriving in time for dinner which will be fun.
Briefly after they leave, Derrick will be back for one more night before he heads back to Minnesota. That will give us about two weeks by ourselves before we start all over again.
My mother will be next visitor to help during Harriet's birth. She will be Sean's taxi to and from preschool and will be spending time with me in the hospital while I recover. After she leaves, my mother-in-law is coming for a day or two to see Harriet after I'm home from the hospital.
We'll then have another couple of weeks to ourselves (other than having Harriet as a new member of the family). Then Ian's brother and sister-in-law are coming to visit along with Ian's parents to celebrate his mother's birthday. We had originally planned this party to be down in South Pasadena but that was in the pre-Harriet days. It's amazing how a baby can change everyone's plans.
