A trip to the beach to watch the sunset
With Uncle Brent and Aunt Lauren
We had a wonderful trip to FL for Thanksgiving. We left on Sunday night at 5pm and arrived at 11:30pm. It was definitely a good idea to drive at night because Hannah ended up sleeping the majority of the trip. She did such a good job on the way down and was in a fabulous mood the entire week! She smiled the majority of the time and slept very well while we were there. She hit a few exciting milestones during the week as well. She started pulling herself up in her crib and she got her first tooth! She handled the new tooth like a champ! :-)
It was great to spend time with my parents (MeMaw and PaPaw) and Hannah got to meet her Uncle Brent and Aunt Lauren for the first time. It was so good to see all of them and made us realize just how much we wish we lived near our family.
We came home yesterday and drove during the daytime, which was definitely not as easy as the night. Hannah took two short naps during the drive, but was definitely ready to get out of the car during the last hour or two. I ended up driving for the second half of the trip and Brian sat in the back with Hannah, to give me a break from the entertaining. When we got home Hannah was in quite a mood - she obviously missed all the attention she had been getting. She slept horribly last night and so far today has cried through both of her naps. She is definitely paying us back for the car ride yesterday. Maybe she's getting another tooth and this time isn't taking it so well? Not sure what the problem is, but she is miserable. :-(
We have so much to be thankful for this year - a healthy baby, wonderful family and friends, a secure job for Brian that he loves, the provision Brian's job provides that allows me to stay home with Hannah, our health, our home, and most importantly our Savior who loves us unconditionally!
