We're back! We're back! From a fabulous week in Las Vegas!
It was SO fun, and we've loved this winter break. You always know it's been a good vacation when you're ready to get back to real life afterwards, which is where I'm at (disclaimer: my real life is really fun presently).
Milo is such a little jumping bean. He loves climbing. He pulls himself up on the couch like it's no big deal. He crawls like a little champion. If he wants to get somewhere, he will make it happen. And he will growl the whole way.
Naturally, we decided that a playground was a perfect present from Nana Hansen. He climbs up the ladder if he has socks on, the slide if not, and then proceeds to lick the edges of the platform and peek out the hole on the side.
He also got some singing cars to add to his collection. He is basically in heaven dancing the days away, and my repertoire of car songs is rapidly expanding.
Sad story of the day: Milo likes annoying things. For example, having things waved around in his face. Nothing funnier. So one day, I was (VERY GENTLY AND KINDLY) bouncing this (VERY SOFT) soccer ball off his little noggin. And he did not like it. And every time he saw his soccer ball for the next 3 days, he cowered in my lap in sheer terror. After putting it in hiding for a week, he forgot, now I only kind of feel like the worst mom on the planet. Phew!
Slobbery kisses all around.
Ping pong night! Trevor's family is so fun. And so good at ping pong.
Adventures of Milo at Target Exhibit 3627: we've moved on to standing. But don't worry, he was laying down drinking his milk by the end of the trip as per usual.
Trevor and I had our first ever night away from Milo last week to celebrate our 4 year anniversary! We left him in the capable hands of Nana and stayed at the JW Marriott where we went on our Honeymoon. It was SO fun and can I tell you that there is also nothing better than your babe snuggling right up and falling asleep in your arms as soon as you get home to him??! It was a perfect date night out and coming home to Milo was like going to Disneyland.
Flying with Milo was so much greater than driving. Also intense because Brilliant #1 and Brilliant #2 aka Trevor and I decided that we would carry everything on and DO YOU KNOW HOW TERRIBLE I AM at packing in the first place? I'll give you a hint, really terrible. Lugging a massive jogging stroller, carseat, 2 huge carry ons that are SO not carry ons, 2 huge backpacks, a purse (also huge let's be honest), and a very wiggly 17 lb Milo= holy sore biceps. If that trip didn't make me buff, I don't know what will.
But have you ever seen a cuter little flying boy? I think not.
The coolest part was when we landed in San Angelo and stared at our apartment for 30 minutes while we waited for the gate to clear out so we could get off the plane. I knew I should have just walked home.
Other highlights of our trip:
- Shopping with Audrey and Whitney until we couldn't move
- Somehow scoring a guest pass to the gym Audrey goes to for every day we were there but one
- Partying with the in-laws
- Trying to sing Milo to sleep at 3 a.m. while he danced to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in my arms (so darling but WILL YOU GO TO SLEEP!)
- Hot tubbing
Miss them all already!
And now we're back!
