It was so good to be home and I loved introducing Matteo to some of my favorite places. My mom is talking about moving to Madison in a few years and while I’m really, really excited for her to be closer to us, I’m selfishly a tiny bit sad because we won’t be able to go to Maryland as easily. Because of that, when I’m back I try to really appreciate and enjoy the things about Baltimore I miss most.
Here are more photos from our trip last week. Matteo did really well on the plane although he spent the first flight crawling all over the tray tables. (The flights weren’t full and we had a whole row to ourselves both ways, thank goodness.) He loved seeing his grandma, uncle Kevin, and his godmother Jen, but I think most of all he loved meeting my mom’s dog, Riley, whose fluffy fur proved completely irresistible to Matteo’s grabby baby hands.
We took a series of photos of Matteo and my brother in their matching cable knit sweaters. They look like they should be on the cover of an 80′s soft rock album.
