Crazy Uncle Mat

It’s official. I am a blood uncle. I was uncled before, but it wasn’t by blood. Not that it matters. But it’s a little more official now.

My sister had her child this morning. 6 lbs. 7 ozs. And beautiful, happy and healthy.

His birth was not unlike Lily’s and it was fun and nostalgic to think we were just about ready to go through it all a year ago. It feels like ages ago. And Lily is just about ready to start thinking about walking!

Hotel Nook

Basically our house has been a hotel for a while. Zack was in town for a few nights last week. He is always a joy to have around and helped us put up a few acoustical treatments at the Studio. John D was in town this weekend and we got to hit up some good eats and shopping. And Liz and Scott (who are due any day now!) spent the night for a wedding here in Baltimore. It’s nice to have seen everyone, but it’s nice to get back to our own shit.

It’s also nice getting back to our routine. We’re transitioning Lily to her own room now. She’ll be sleeping in the nook (the back bedroom) on the futon on the floor. Super cozy and great for transitioning. She’s already slept there a couple of nights and it’s gone pretty good.

It’s crazy to think we’ll be celebrating Lily’s first birthday (well second, really) with close friends and family in less than a month!

On a side note today we went to the Baltimore Zoo with Kris and Michelle to the see Samson, the baby elephant and afterwards we had crabs to celebrate Emily and my mother’s birthday. Yummy crabs.

Oh and I had a session last week that went wonderfully. The mixes are turning out great. And we are receiving all the feedback about the studio we want to hear, without asking for it. I have another session this coming weekend. This time it’s a female acoustic songstress. Pop rock to the max. I am looking forward to using more ribbon mics. They are the wave of the future.

And some photos from the zoo:

Gone mixing.

I’ve been recording and mixing the new Kadman EP.

I do plan on coming back here soon. Seriously.
