When Nik told me he was thinking about going to a video nerd conference in Austin, I begged to tag along. Gotta get out to Texas to see my other baby.
We stayed in a sweet AirBnb, that had concrete floors. Which aesthetically was nice, but baby wise, it was a disaster waiting to happen. Like right after this picture. Head smacked right on the concrete.
We always wait for the babies to be able to interact, like 'Will this be the time they are finally aware of each other and play?!' There wasn't a ton of playing. But there was awareness demonstrated from Emma, whose lack of the ability to move did not stop her from body slamming, and trying to catch a ride on Char, a death grip on her collar.
We went to the state capital, soaking up some Texan history. Then both moms proceeded to fight panic attacks when the husbands, holding babies, wanted to peer over a four story look out with babies.
My favorite part of Austin (company aside) was how walkable of a city it felt. There were trails, and everything felt pretty close together.
