Where's Carrie?

I know, posting here stopped abruptly a week ago. What happened was, my parents came over. And they brought these two kids with them. And then they played a dirty trick on us: They walked out the door, and they LEFT these kids here. And since then, well, it's all a blur.
Also, I took Toth to BlogHer for three days. More on that later.
Today was my first day flying solo with all three. It went surprisingly smoothly, even when I had to take them all to the midwife with me. OK, dinner didnt' hit the table until 7:30 p.m., but since I had taken the girls to McDonald's for ice cream at around 6, they didn't complain. Really, Toth is still sleeping most of the day, so the only inconvenience he introduces to the day is having to sit down and nurse him every couple hours, and of course changing a few diapers. And doing everything sleep deprived. But to tell the truth last night I got the best night of sleep since we brought him home, so that helped.
I have to sleep now, but I promise MANY pictures of the world's cutest baby boy soon. Oh, and maybe this little update will tide you over: During a long awake period this evening, Toth worked on moving his hands around with great concentration. Don't you love seeing a tiny baby stare at his hand and move it around, as if he's working one of those remote-control arms that's supposed to grab the stuffed-animal in that carnival game? He successfully grabbed a toy hanging over his head. At 2 weeks old. Clearly a genius.
