A vacation update

Copyright (c) 123RF Stock Photos
Now that Oath is sleeping in my arms I'll (hopefully!) have enough time to update.

We have been having fun with friends, visiting family and going to the beach, mostly. My mom and sisters are moving next month (back to the tiny flat I grew in) and now they are packing and thinking of storage solutions, and I try to help as much as possible: it's my opportunity to start organizing from a nearly blank slate! I've also been given free way to design and paint the walls there, so maybe something interesting will happen before the end of the month... if Oath lets me.

He has become the most fun, giggly an demanding little man. With so many people around talking and playing with him, he seems to have grown up months instead of weeks. He is also developing a deep pleasure for biting, and I so hope that it's not because of his teeth (2 and a half months is too early to be teething!). He loves to be held, and is starting to wake up a little earlier than usual, so I am exhausted. I'm so thankful I have four sets of helping hands here!

Blogwise, I haven't written much (didn't you notice? *wink wink*) but I've been thinking about it a lot. I have new ideas for blog posts and plan on fully start back blogging as soon as I can (right now our schedule is to hectic, and when Oath finally falls asleep at the end of the day I am too braindead to write anything coherent). I'm also seriously thinking of meal planning with/for my mom, so maybe there'll be a new menu plan posted soon (but probably not on monday, though).
Also, I keep in mind Jean's comment and nomination (thank you very much!!) and I'll do the mandatory blog post when I am sure it won't be a half-assed one because of lack of time. Pinkie promise.

I'm leaving now: Oath is stirring and trying to claw his face off in his sleep (it doesn't matter how often I cut his nails, they grow so fast!)

Please forgive any mistakes in this post, writing one-handed is not my best skill.

Oath's Mom

Just a quick update

We arrived safe and sound to the island that I still call home.

Oath did great on the plane, and did not cry or fuss at all. Airports did not phase him, either.

On the other hand, the heat is proving to be more difficult to manage for him, poor baby. While I don't think it is that hot, I can see how his tiny body might be overloaded by it, not having ever experienced it before. He fusses and cries and wants to nurse all time, and asks to be held but does not want me too close after a few seconds... I think he will adapt soon, though, but these first days have been difficult. At least he's sleeping well and all my family is fighting over who gets to hold him, so it's not as hard on me as it could be.

I'll do a better update as soon as we're a bit more settled into our vacation routine.

PS: I just want to note how different the feelings are when it is "my tribe" who takes my baby from my arms. And that they ask first, even though they are closest and maybe I wouldn't need it so much. Oh, well...
