Family Vacation

My little man, AKA, chubba bubba, No no Bean, bugger and... really tired in this picture

Every year Eric and I (now Noah too) head to the South West for some family fun in the sun. My father (Steve) and brother (Stephen) play in an Ice Hockey tournament in Scottsdale, AZ over Memorial Day weekend. It has become the trip our entire family looks forward to each year. This year we decided to switch hotels from the one we have stayed at for sooooo many years and stay at the Westin and it was worth it!

The last 5 days this is what my office looked like:My father in the front, my mother, Eric, My empty chair, the pack and play, my brother in law and my sister next to him.

It was great. We set the Pack And Play up for Noah.
He reluctantly took two naps a day in the warm AZ sun.

Snoozing was a common occurrence at the pool

Snoozing and Boozing
Is it there something wrong with me that I felt like a bad mom for feeding Noah jarred food every meal for 5 days? At least I had help!

The beautiful pool had a LAZY RIVER and a BEACH!

If it weren't for the darn mosquitoes and Eric leaving early to get back to work... I would say this was a perfect vacation.

Mother's Day Part 2

I want to know what he was thinking

Mother's Day dinner was at Capone's in Huntington Beach. I love it there. The food is delicious and the service is unbeatable. My parents and I were shocked at how well Noah did in the very Adult setting of the restaurant. As you can see, he reclined in his highchair and relaxed most the evening. Silly guy was so in love with the wonderful live singer performing. He kept making googoo eyes at her. She liked Noah so much she gave us a free CD!

Nana and Noah before dinner

Noah was so sweet and gentle trying to play with Pilot.
He reached and reached and finally made it to pet him.

Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to see my in-laws on Mother's Day. I can't wait to spend some good quality time with them. We love you Mike and Pat!

Mother's Day

We are so blessed by Noah. Everyday Eric and I have at least one moment when we look at each other and say "Wow, did you ever immagine it would be this amazing?" This little man makes us so happy and optimistic about everything. He is so silly and goofy...taking after most of our family. He talks nonsense, cracks himself up, scares himself, rolls all over, says Da Da and Mmmmma, he dances a "happy dance" and reminds us daily of Gods Love and Grace.

This Mother's Day we were so sad that Eric had to work. I started the day off by going to my very good friend's Aunts house for brunch. The best brunch I have ever eaten in my life! Thanks Bonnie. From there Noah and I drove to LA to get Nana and Papa from the Airport. The rest of the day and pictures to come soon.
