Vacation

First Off ... I apologize for the short, snarky post the past few days .. I guess that the hormonally induced AF got ahold of me - it sucks and I am sorry

Secondly - Packing with a new small family member that requires so many different gadgets, Is beyond interesting .. Generally Speaking, I overpacked ..but I felt it was better to be prepared than caught off guard.

Things I packed -
Anticipated 3-4 Outfit changes a day
Anticipated 2 dirty blankets a day
hat
Pack n Play and sheets
wipes
wash cloth/towels
boucey seat
stroller
sling/wrap
breastpump
bottles
bottle warmer
dishwasher basket
diaper bag and etc.

Things I forgot and had to go buy
Bottle Brush
Diapers (yes i really forgot diapers)
Baby Wash

Things I Wish I had brought -
Baby Monitor

The vacation, so far, as been great fun (in spite of AF and her shockingly early arrival). The others are catching us some lobster which I am very glad about. We are having a great time. Let's see how we all manage after the 7/8 hour car ride tomorrow. We left at night the first time so I was not worried about MT sleeping .. But tomorrow we are leaving during the day - should be interesting.

Of course, Here are some pics:

He's so cute :-)

When I packed for the plane I packed way too much, but overall I didn't have enough and ended up buying more clothes... It's so hard to tell what you'll actually need.

I love his onesie!

And you look great carrying him in that wrap. Is it complicated? Is it comfortable? (Have I asked you these things before? I'm totally infatuated with these things so I ask everyone.)

What beautiful pictures!! I love is little onesie. I'm glad you are enjoying the vacation. Can you stay in town till the evening to drive home?

It seems you are all enjoying the break!

I think you will be fine during the car ride, even if it is during the day. I am sure the movement will make MT sleepy and will nap a lot.

AF is not too bad - take this from someone who doesn't know if her cycles will ever come back! -
