My first prayer of the vacation was answered last night, as the boy slept pretty solidly through the night--he woke up and cried for a little over a minute at 3AM but then went back to sleep until nearly 8:30 this morning. Ahh, I hope that continues (the sleeping well, not the waking)!
I discovered today that the boy LOVES the ocean. He toddled all over the sand today, digging with his little plastic shovel, exploring, and finally discovered the water. Though it was freezing cold (and the air wasn't super warm today due to clouds), he kept coming over to the water. Even when some waves made him lose his balance and sit down, even when he actually fell forward once and got a face full of salt water, he kept walking back to the water. I am so happy he likes it since we'll be here for a week, he'll have plenty to do when the weather is good enough outside. We were only probably out there for an hour and a half today because of some passing thunderstorms, but hopefully tomorrow will be better.
That said, I managed a good run this afternoon. It was humid but I still felt good. The only annoying thing was mosquitoes. Yes, they even bit me WHILE I was running! I have had at least a good 8 mosquito bites since we got here yesterday and we have only been here about 26 hours. Ugh...I wish I wasn't so allergic to them. I always get huge welts. Ah well. Other than that, it's going great...the boy is getting along with all his similar-aged second cousins and it's fun to catch up with all of my husband's relatives.
