Tim's birthday was on June 12th and we always go for a trip to celebrate. Last year, we were in Guatemala meeting Caroline for the first time. This year, we went to Charleston, South Carolina for a night. It was SO HOT! Poor Caroline...she had never experienced humidity like this before! She was such a trooper! After all of our stays at the Marriott in Guatemala City, we have now been upgraded to gold member status. We stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the baseball stadium and marina. We could also see the Citadel from our window. Charleston was a beautiful city with tons of history. We walked around the historic district and visited the markets. We also walked down by the river and let Caroline play in this HUGE pineapple fountain! The water was cool, so she was a little apprehensive about it. Caroline loved us pushing her in the stroller and loved everyone paying attention to her! I think we have a future star on our hands!!!
We also went to a neighboring beach/island (spur of the moment), so we put her in the sand and ocean for the first time. She LOVED it! I wish that I had put a bathing suit on her, but we weren't really prepared to go swimming! :) She loved playing in the water. She didn't want to get out when it was time to go! We definitely have a waterbaby!!! YEA!!
Happy belated birthday, Tim! You are a great daddy and we LOVE you so much! Thanks for taking us to a beautiful city to celebrate your special day!
Yep, you heard it right! Caroline is now officially walking. She started on Friday and hasn't stopped. It's so cute! She looks like a little frankenstein walking all over the house. She falls, she gets right back up and goes again. Sometimes, her body moves much faster than her little feet. We're never going to catch a break now!!! :)
This was a funny moment for our little "angel". We were playing on the floor when all of a sudden Caroline looked over and spotted Peanut's bed. Peanut was walking towards her bed when Caroline took a nose dive for the bed. She landed face down in the bed, righted herself up and then looked at Peanut and LAUGHED! Peanut was so depressed that she put her nose down on the floor and just stared up at Caroline. Caroline continued to laugh! I think we may have a little "monster" on our hands!!!
I am the mother to a wonderful little girl named Caroline. We have been home from Guatemala for a few years and life has changed tremendously for us. I was a teacher, then a stay at home mom, and now I'm back to teaching full time. I am an AVID tennis player, dog and cat lover, coupon clipper, pathetic cook, and obsessed with coffee! I HATE cleaning and doing laundry. I am now trying to juggle LIFE one day at a time!!
