Poor little Dex spiked a fever yesterday morning. We battled through a whole day of rising and falling temperatures. The upside is that he was able to spend a whole day at home with Mommy and the puppies.
Judging by the smiles in these pictures, you would think he was just playing hooky!
Last weekend we took our first vacation, just the 3 … err, 5 of us.
That’s right – 2 adults, 2 dogs and 1 baby.
To celebrate a friend’s birthday, a group of 14 of us rented a hacienda in Malinalco. It was beautiful, tranquil and something straight out of a postcard. And then our family showed up.
Chloe got into a “scuffle” with one of the hacienda dogs. Twice. Charlie very happily dropped the balls that flew out of the paddle-ball court into the pool. Every time. And Dexter developed a temporary dislike for his portacrib, which lasted about the duration of the trip. Our friends were kind enough to say they never heard him cry at night. But in a building made of stone and concrete with open-air hallways, I am certain they were just being nice … very nice.
Despite the craziness, we really did have a fantastic weekend. It was so refreshing to get out of the city and spend time with friends.
We even had a chance to snap a few photos (well, OF COURSE we took photos!)
I feel incredibly lucky for the enormous amount of help I got during my first 6 weeks with Dexter. (Thank you Grandmas and Grandpas!)
However, all the help made me a little tentative on my first day … alone. But it’s only 11:00 and already we both have had breakfast, a bath and a breath of fresh outside air.
