Our First Family Vacation with Joshua
We recently went to Arizona to visit my brother Joe, his wife Lucia and their baby Noah (8 months old). We had a lot of fun lounging around at the pool (it was around 115 degrees there), shopping (our malls around here are pitiful in comparison) and had a great time playing with the babies. They are only 2 months apart and had a lot of fun trying to grab each other's clothes etc. Though Joshua didn't sleep quite as good as he does at home, he was cute and happy as usual.
Joshua developed a new skill on his trip-- sitting (if only we adults got praise for such tasks). We were trying to take a picture of the three baby cousins together and I decided to see if I could get Joshua to sit long enough for the photo, and what do you know, he just sat there for several minutes all by himself. I hadn't tried to have him sit by himself for a while and had no idea he was even capable of this. He is growing up so FAST! I better start baby proofing my house.
They had this great zoo down there where you were able to be up close and personal with all the animals. It felt like you were walking around in a jungle! Joshua showed up every other baby by having 3 blow outs and ended up in a diaper and shorts since my usual 2 extra sets of clothes weren't even enough for him this time.
