We went away with friends for the Memorial Day weekend. It was fun, but exhausting. We shared a house and I don't think that is my favorite way to vacation. It may be a bit too much togetherness. Plus, people just wanted to lay by the pool all the time and I am not that kind of a vacationer. I wanted to get out and walk around a bit or do something besides sunbathe. It was also hard to relax with Ace there. He loved the pool and was really easy but since I wasn't used to the surroundings and worried about him and the water, it was just not relaxing. I think next time, if we do it again, I will look into hiring a babysitter for one afternoon.
Ace is doing great. He is teething so his behavior has been all over the place, but he is making a lot of developmental leaps. His sleeping is a bit off but we have been planning on buckling down this week and trying to get him back on the 12 hours a night plan. When he laughs you can see all the new giant teeth taking residence in his sweet little mouth. Besides woof, he now says ball, bubble, fish (kind of) and moo. He loves buses and freaks out whenever he sees one. He likes anything with wheels, and the bigger the better. He is also really into balls. He even likes watching sports on tv. He points and repeats, "ball, ball..." He can recognize an athlete from what he or she is wearing. Even Venus Williams in her visor - I think he is aware that some ball players wear hats and recognized her hat. He definitely knows that baseball players wear hats and that his baseball hat is a ball hat.
Friday we go in for a doctor's appointment. I'm curious to see how big he is. We might be in the market for a new car seat soon.
