D on the go!

So everything is different once you have a baby... that's a given, right? But traveling is ESPECIALLY different with a baby.
After one week + one day on the road... I'm exhausted!
Well, first of all, preparing for a trip with baby takes hours & hours longer - there's so much more to pack. Thankfully, we didn't need to pack a bed for him, because everywhere we were staying had either a crib or a pack & play.
Or, at nap time, he just crashed on our bed.This was during one of the days while I was at my conference and Daddy flew solo. I don't think I've ever gotten so many frantic text messages from Mike, most of them referring to temper tantrums or poopy diapers. Though somehow I think the temper tantrums could have been avoided if D would have received his second bottle!

I also packed lots of books, but mostly just the sturdy ones. This, as it turned out, was a good idea.Upside down Brown Bear? Oh, well!

And the beach. My mom warned me that Dominic might try to eat sand, but I figured that once he downed one handful, he'd realize that sand tastes disgusting.

Nope. He loved it, and refused to stop eating it (ew!), and it made me nervous, so eventually I moved him to the boardwalk. We tried the ocean once, but the waves made him nervous.
His favorite part of vacation seemed to be the hotel pool.
That, of course, and lots of quality time with Daddy.
