What a great week! We have just returned from a wedding weekend in Columbia, SC followed by a week in Charleston with Craig’s Aunt, at the beach etc. Charleston is lovely, the weather was great (a bit hot, but not too bad), and I got a massage!! This was my wonderful husband’s birthday gift for me – both the beach and watching E while I went to the spa. Thirty two-hot-to-handle has started very well indeed.

The car trip down was l o n g… um, how come none of our friends or family with kids every mentioned that babies/kids pretty much DOUBLE the time of a normal road trip?? And the melt down at the end of our 12 hour day was not pretty… E’s melt down, not ours. We recovered quickly thanks to our gracious host, Craig’s Uncle, and enjoyed a beautiful wedding. Then on Sunday, we were off to Charleston for the week. I can’t say enough about the time we had – relaxing, fun, laid back, slow paced, quiet, relaxing (i know i said that already, but it’s worth mentioning twice). Craig’s Aunt allowed us to take over her house for the week while she slept on a couch in her office/studio. We had a really great time hanging with her and had a couple leisurely dinners with her son and his fiance as well. E had his first dip (just a toe) in the ocean and several trips to the beach.

Right. So, our four-month old has a comb-over. There, I said it. So many people have commented on it now that it doesn’t surprise me and I have come to accept his hair issues. I’m really tempted to cut it. Not a lot, just a tiny little trim to clean it up a bit… it’s sort of starting to get in his eyes. Don’t worry, no matter what we do, unless we gave him a total buzz cut, the comb-over will remain for all of you who have come to love it as we have.

E\'s first time sticking his toes in the ocean.
