Taking a Break

Henry 071 by you.

Yesterday we decided we all needed to get away. Just this morning G found us an awesome hotel in Beaufort, South Carolina and we've been spending the day swimming in the pool, watching cable (a luxury for us!), lounging in the sun, and eating good food. I was even able to take a long, hot bath and drink a glass of wine tonight. Do you realize these are two things I have not been able to pair since I found out I was pregnant?! This is a huge deal guys!

Henry had his first experience with a pool today. We all thought he would hate the (very cold) water on his feet but he loved it. He kicked his legs, squealed with excitement and blew spit bubbles until his lips were numb. One of my most favorite things ever is introducing Henry to new experiences and I know this is one we'll remember forever.

oh my gosh, you just reminded me that i haven't had a glass of wine plus hot bath experience in 19 months now... wow. i think it's in order as soon as i can find tub for the bath. the wine is never a problem around our house:-)

Adriana said...

allie said...

Paige, I agree. It would be so fun to hang out all the time :)

Em: Thanks so much! Have you found little glasses for Truman and Sawyer yet?

Bonnie: Thanks for voting for us! I bet Asia would love, love the pool!

Ashley: Our hot water tank is so small that we never have enough hot water for a bath! It was the most relaxing thing I've experienced in soooo long.

Jess: I thought for sure H would scream. I was completly surprised by his (not so awful) reaction. I bet he'll love the water if you keep putting him in it.

Adriana: You are too sweet. I haven't worn a bikini in a long time and definitely realized how much bigger my boobs are now that I'm breastfeeding. Yikes!
