1. Will clung to one of Grandpop's hands at all times.
2. We got to eat some decadent dessert, courtesy of their hotel restaurant.
3. I finally got my hands on an enormous set of pictures from our Jersey Shore vacation.
(I'm wondering if "Jersey Shore" will ever be an innocuous phrase, ever again?)
There are a lot of people who take a lot of pictures in our immediate family on the Noon side, so please believe me when I tell you that I practiced restraint in choosing "only" these photos to post:
The first thing Will said every morning was "Go see cousins!"
I think you can see why.
He has so much fun with this gang.
The shirt says it all.
"Jenna pick Will up!" was also a common refrain.
Finn snoozed on Auntie Cindy at the beach...
...while the rest of us played.
Finn loved the beach, but he was frustrated with us for not letting him eat the sand.
The family shot.
The four of us.
Celebrating Will's birthday early--do you think he liked that plan?
A sunrise documented by Grandpop...
while I slept soundly inside.
(I had to take advantage of Finn's wonderful nights of sleep, didn't I?)
The Boston Noons head back home.
I don't have a lot of pictures of Finn sans pacifier, but it was shortly after that trip that we decided to wean him off it. And then we decided that we really preferred full nights of sleep to a frustrated, vocal baby who missed his pacifier, so now he gets it once in a while--about as often as we get to sleep through the night.
These pictures make me miss the beach, the summer (even the humidity), and mostly our faraway family. Hopefully Christmas will be here before we know it.
