(much snippage)

I guess (depending on the length of the honeymoon) it was somewhat more 
than a year; they were returning for the birth (decanting?) of the twins, 
who were conceived about a year after their marriage, I think.

I figured that Nikki had a pretty good sized support group in place, and 
his mother had a decent interval to set things up so he _wouldn't_ feel 
abandoned.  Uncles Vassily and Hugo are evidently still nearby, Professora 
Vorthys is, too, and Vorkosigan House undoubtedly has a decent-sized 
permanent staff on hand, even though the Count and Countess are not 
normally in residence. if only to support the Lord Auditor's household.

Regards, Pete
