Last weekend was President's Day Weekend, and we headed to Aberdeen to visit our dear friends, Jeff and Tina, and their two daughters, Natalie and Alanna. It was wonderful to get out of town and relax for a few days. I took a nap every day, Wesley was well cared for whether it was me, Matt or his Auntie or Uncle looking after him. Even his cousins liked playing with him. Matt and I even got a lunch date, which was wonderful.
Sunday we finally made it out to the beach, which was supposed to be the nice day. It was a bit blustery and rainy at first, but the weather finally cleared up enough to where we felt like we could take Wesley to the beach. And he LOVED it! Matt insisted on putting Wesley's hands and feet in the water, Wes couldn't get enough. He was so excited to see the ocean, to feel the (icy) cold water on his skin. We then quickly hurried back to the car and got his wet, sandy clothes off, at which time his lips turned a little blue. We got warm clothes on his little cold body, wrapped him in blankets, and in no time he was back to his normal, happy self. (Binkies help too.)
I can't wait to go back to the beach, and on our next family vacation. We had such a good time!
I should also point out that he was fussier than usual. Turned out he had a major growth spurt and sprouted two new teeth - the seventh one is out, the eighth is on it's way.
