We Are Headed To...
the beautiful Outer Banks in Corolla, NC! We are packed (probably over packed) and ready to leave first thing in the morning. We will be meeting this beautiful family when we get there...
I cannot wait for week of fun at the beach and splashing in the pool. Many memories await us! Bradley is beyond excited for the trip! I'm not sure if he truly remembers the trip last year, maybe from looking through the pictures he does. But, he was telling me all about it. How he was going to ride the "bus" (trolley) over to the beach with Larken. So sweet!
It is amazing how much has changed in a years time. We went last year at almost exactly this same week. We are coming back with a new baby and living in a new house. Wow!
I am a bit nervous for the trip in general. Ellie HATES the car seat. I mean this little girl will put up a major fight in the car if you don't get to her immediately. We have had some major screaming just this week when she was stuck in the car. I'm sure part of the trip will be spent with me in the back seat between the two kids. Also, Ellie has been doing SO great at home, after a lot of hard sleep training. I hope this doesn't mess things up too much. She literally rolled over last night and went right to sleep after I nursed her. Just as content as can be. I never thought we would get here just a month ago.
I am sure overall things will go well! I always expect it to be worse than it is, and then they surprise us with how easygoing they can be (fingers crossed)!
Also thank you for all of the sweet comments, emails, and notes sent on facebook about my last blog post. These past four months have been a bit of an adventure for our family, and particularly hard on me. It is just nice to know I am not in this alone, and many of you have experienced the same thing. Thank you so much!!!
See you in a week!!!
