We're back from Denver. I can't say it was the most enjoyable trip, but I had to present my poster...and at least it was paid for.
We were hoping to escape the Texas heat and enjoy cool/cold weather in Denver. Other than the first morning, it was very warm in Denver, and another cool front went through Texas. It was actually warmer in Denver!
Here's a pic from that cold morning. We were waiting to get into a popular breakfast place and IJG fell asleep.
We spent a lot of time playing with IJG in the hotel room. His interest in holding and chewing toys finally arrived while we were away. We also visited a few parks.
Another skill IJG picked up while away is rolling over. He can now roll over from his tummy to his back, only rolling over his right side. Here's the photographic evidence. This is how I found him Monday morning. He now ends up on his back after every nap and every morning. It's actually disrupting his sleep. He is rolling over throughout the night and laying awake talking to himself. Last night was better, so hopefully he'll get over the novelty of it soon.
While in Denver, I was attending the American Dietetic Association Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo. Here's a pic of Ellie Krieger (the RD on Food Network) performing a food demo.
Tuesday, the last day we were in Denver, was the day I had to present my poster at the conference. Here's a pic of my poster. It's 5' x 2.5'.
Here's a pic of me leaving the conference...loaded down with loot from the expo, my poster and a coworker's poster, the baby bag, and baby...real excited about the 20 hr trip home.
