East Coast Adventure
We just got back from a wonderful visit with the grandparents. Air travel with two under two is quite an adventure to be sure! Although the trip home was quite challenging, we survived it just fine & the boys did great. (Thank goodness for portable DVD players & Baby Signing Times videos!)
Had a fun visit with Noni & Poppi - we mostly just relaxed and hung out at home. One afternoon we went out to lunch & had the "best fried shrimp I have ever eaten" according to William & Poppi. The weather was nice & we went for walks & played outside in Noni's garden.
Our next stop was to see Grandma & Grandpa Z.
All of the aunts, uncles & cousins were there too. We all went out for a delicious Mother's Day brunch & spent the rest of our time there visiting & eating & walking around the lake (& eating some more!)
We were so excited to meet our new cousin Dylan - he is a doll! Quinn had a great time playing with his cousin Addison. She taught him a few moves & he has made great progress with the walking. He will now walk (for everyone except Mommy!) holding on to just one hand. He has taken a few steps on his own and we are working on building his confidence to let go more often. We have already had to step up the baby-proofing at home since he is progressing quickly. He is doing really well with his sign language and has a repertoire of about a dozen signs.
Remy continues to grow bigger every day! He is now smiling & laughing regularly and loves to watch his big brother playing. He still wakes us up a few times at night, but we're hoping (fingers crossed) that he will start sleeping longer at night VERY soon.
