Life after Vacation

8.03.09 ~ L being playful, Punta Cana

We've been home for a week and life is back to our normal schedule (for the most part). If only the lazy and care-free feel of vacation could be bottle to be used as often as needed. In the week we've been home, L has cut three new teeth with one more about to break through and we've had to get her fitted for new shoes.

For L teething means needing more comfort and she get the typical teething symptoms...drooling, coughing, chin rash, BITING {her favorite, my finger}, less sleep and irregular bowel movements. L loves to bit my finger when she's teething. I won't mind so much if her teeth weren't so sharp. Dave will try to let L use his finger but she refuses it. She goes for mine.

L refuses to wear clothes and takes her shoes off at every opportunity. She kept whining about her shoes and so I suspected her shoes are getting tight. When we went to get her feet sized today I found out her right foot is 1 size better than the other. I loved the experience we had at Clarks. The clerk was very knowledgeable and L loved her shoes. She even seems to be running in them.

Now that we know L is a good little traveler, whether it's by land, air or sea. I'm ready for the next vacation. What makes L a good traveler is that she loves to explore new things. It was 10 days of new experiences for all of us. We started with a trip to New Jersey on Friday (July 31st) for Van and Tuan's wedding. We stayed at the Hilton Home Suites. It was a lovely place to stay. The only problem was they ran out of cribs for L. We had to get a cot for L (which worried Dave) so we had to pack the sides with all the extra pillows we had.

L before the wedding

The wedding was on Saturday, August 1st. As with most wedding day, time just flew. It was a beautiful ceremony and L loved dancing during the reception. She sat on the mini stage and danced. We left the reception early because our flight for Punta Cana left Boston on Sunday at 8:30AM. There are some perks when traveling with a toddler...especially at the security check in point {we were given the shorter line}.

L did really well on the plane and Punta Cana was so much fun. Dave and I were there before L was born, but being with 27 other people and L made it a different experience. L loved the water, especially on the catamaran, Tropical Storm. 27 loud and drunk people did not phase here. She wanted to feel and see the water.

Oh no or as L would say, "ahh nah", I've been working on this post for a week now. I'm going to end it now as the information in it is getting dated and just runs right into one another.
