Trey is my beach boy! He absolutely loves it down here. He loves to pick up seashells, dig in the sand... but most of all he likes to dip his feet in the FREEZING water and watch as the waves comes crashing. He will say, "Here they come, Mama!" and just stare at them fascinated. The wind and water were freezing the other day when we were down there and he was soaked and in shorts, but it didn't bother him one bit and he had quite the tantrum when we tried to leave. Pj is having fun having special Trey/daddy time. Almost every day they have gone out in the morning either to the donut shop or to the park or just take a walk. Later on this morning they are going mini-golfing with Mike and Trey's cousin Brett. Karen and I are going to look for a nail salon and get a pedicure... we'll see if we can find a place nearby that is open!
Ethan went to the beach finally for his first time the other day. He seemed to enjoy it, as much as you can tell from a 6-month old's emotions. He definitely seemed to take everything in. We got some cute pictures! He is having a rough week. His teeth are still pushing through and every other day he seems to be in discomfort (like this morning when he woke up at 6:30am just cranky and hurting). But he's a champ. Pj is amazing... the first few nights he took over Ethan's sleeping and whenever he cried he went in and shushed him but then let him cry it out. It took two or three nights, but now Ethan is sleeping pretty much from 8pm-4am, feeds, and then 4am-8am. I love it! Just to give you an idea of what it was before... he would wake up at 12pm, 2pm, 4am, 6am..... yeah I didn't get much sleep up until this week. Thank God the plan worked!! My husband is awesome. It's hard to be firm with Ethan when you are sleep deprived and know all you have to do is to nurse him to get him to go back to sleep. I think Ethan knew he had me under his thumb!
I've enjoyed the nice hot weather we've had the past couple of days. I've spent in in my bathing suit by the pool with a good book... feels like summer! It will be hard to go home. We are actually debating leaving tomorrow (as previously planned) or just waiting till Monday. We'll see! We are so thankful that we can stay down here. We were just talking the other day about what a blessing it is... because if it weren't for Pj's parents and their beach home that they generously open up to us... we probably wouldn't be able to go on vacations at all its just so expensive. It's just been really great to know we can get a break and not go completely broke!
Well, the sun just came out and apparently its already 64 outside and still no one is up yet... so I'm headed out for some sun and reading. Here are some cute pictures to leave you with!
