I haven’t blogged in a while, but in my defense I’ve been catching up on my other blog (that I actually get paid to keep updated) after taking a week off to visit my parents in California with Liam.

Speaking of vacationing with Liam – we had a grand time. He was the perfect baby traveling to and from Palm Springs. Not a peep on the airplane. Such a relief! He even got a handful of compliments from some grandparents at the airport about what a good baby he is. I don’t know if I can take credit for that yet, but it made me feel like I’m headed in the right direction as a parent nonetheless.

I took Liam in the pool for the first time. He absolutely loved it. I think he could have splashed around for hours, but I figured when he turned into a prune, it was time to get out. I had a hunch he’d be a water baby based on our experiences with bath time. He loved his first bath, and every bath since. Hey, I don’t blame him – it’s warm, bubbly and smells clean.

Aside from pool time, Liam got a lot of grandma time in – which she loved. And let’s be honest, I loved it, too, because it meant I got a little break to enjoy the sunshine. I came home feeling like a refreshed person. Funny how a little Vitamin D can change your attitude. Is it summer yet?

Cheers to sunny vacations with grandma!

an adventure in prunes

“If it doesn’t get all over the place, it doesn’t belong in your face.” — Carl’s Jr. commercial circa 2003 (still rings true today, in my opinion)

It’s been pretty awesome watching Liam’s reaction to what’s been on the spoon. We tried pears last night (which he couldn’t get in his mouth fast enough), and today we tackled prunes. I think he’s a fan.

I’m hoping this will help him sleep through the night better because this lady needs her zzzzz’s – it’s been far too long since I’ve had a solid six hours. Fingers crossed everyone!

xoxo
