Vacation Perfection

1 Comment

We’re on vacation! It’s beautiful here, but cold. Oh so cold! When we packed Matthew’s clothes, B said he wouldn’t need long pants because it would only be cold at night. I ALWAYS over pack, so I brought half of M’s 12-18 month wardrobe including pants and hoodies. That decision has paid off!

I will update more when I’m home, but it’s been an eventful trip with a trip to the ER (everyone is OK), teething, and early (insanely, swear-inducing early) mornings. BUT it’s been a great week of just family and limited technology. The only reason I’m getting away with using my phone for blogging is that B’s company is making major announcements this week and he’s keeping up with them on his slate. We agreed to limit time on phones and his slate, but the man’s got to work some and that means blogging and reading for me! I’m not complaining!

Matthew naps like a champ here! Why wont he sleep alone past 3 or 4 in the morning? I am one tired woman. He doesn’t sleep well in bed with us and I nurse him almost the whole time he’s in bed with us, so I don’t sleep well either and my girls need a freaking break! Ouch!

We come home tomorrow. I think 4 nights is the perfect time away with a baby. 5 nights is actually my own shelf-life for vacations so this one worked out great! The cottage is so comfortable! It feels like we’re home but on the lake. I think our accommodations have made the trip super easy! A regular hotel room would not have worked…. And that has me a bit edgy about our trip next month.

I’m not ready to go home just yet, but I will be tomorrow. Vacation perfection was achieved this time!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

One thought on “Vacation Perfection

  1. It sounds perfect…minus the ER trip. 😦 Glad everyone’s ok though! Can’t wait to hear all about what you guys did.
