HELLO from South Carolina!
my mom, sister, nephews, and i have been here for a few days and have been enjoying each and every one! we've made a couple trips to the beach, plenty of walks over to the pool, and eaten more food than a person needs for an entire month. this is our first vacation with my nephews, so i wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but it's been more fun than i even thought it could be! one of my favorite things is to watch David discover new things and explore everything. he's in that sweet spot where he's independent enough that he'll walk off on his own to look at something but come running back over to be picked up. so, basically, he's an aunt's dream.
it's been great being with Luke, too, especially since he seems to enjoy spending time in my arms. he's my own personal space heater - the boy produces more heat than a fire. and he's had plenty of smiles to share, which is always so nice to see! i've also mastered putting him in the ergo all by myself, so i'd say i've made some great strides this week in aunthood.
mike is due to arrive with my dad today, so i'm anxious for that to happen! we're all looking forward to a weekend together enjoying the weather and beautiful surroundings! here's to hoping that i don't miss my knees next time i'm applying my SPF 50 #ouch
