Eliana's best bud Quinn celebrated his first birthday! These two have been through thick and thin, pee and poop, marathon long nursing sessions and have even shared puffs. I think it's love. Unfortunately Q was such a popular little boy at his party that we weren't able to get a pic of the two of them together. We did do a photo shoot with the other babes... and it was HILARIOUS. Turns out babies don't like party hats.
Eliana's first international travel experience was a total success! We spent our mornings relaxing and napping at home (Eliana napped... we drank margaritas on the veranda!), and our afternoons exploring sweet little towns and the beautiful beaches.
Playing in the grass at the nice resort that we enjoyed sneaking into :-)
She loved playing in the ocean with daddy.
Fun in the sand!
Dinner at our favorite taco stand.
First taste of sand ~ delicious!
We enjoyed beautiful sunsets (and made a mad dash once the mosquitos came out!).
Killing time (if you could call it that) during Eliana's nap time.
We brought one toy from home... but there was PLENTY of interesting things to explore in the house.
All in all we could not have asked for a better trip. It was definitely different travelling with baby... but seeing her eyes light up and her arms and legs flare with excitement when she experienced new things made it ALL worth it.
Eliana celebrated the morning of her ten month birthday in Mexico and the evening here in Cali ~ what a life!
What a doll our girl is! Eliana continues to be so fun, outgoing, inquisitive and all around amazing. She proved to be a great traveler and fell in love with the beach and sunshine, just like mama. Just last week two teeth on the top started breaking through and she also started pulling herself up to standing (when leaning on mom or dad). She is a bundle of LOVE right now and we just can't get enough.
Fans, I'm thinking it's time to go private with the good 'ol blog! I LOVE having random (not creepy) internet readers, but I think it's best to keep the scary ones away and make the blog private... keep the babe safe. So... please message/comment/email your email so I can add you to my "readers" list!
