Noah did exceptionally well on his first holiday. It was ney bother to him. He coped well with the long journey, slept like usual, and seemed to enjoy the craic. He's 10 weeks old now. 10 weeks! Can you believe it? Such a happy wee babby too.
I've converted my Da to babywearing. I tied our boba wrap on Grandpa D during this trip to the beach, where Noah slept like a bug in a rug while Jack and I had a paddle and clambered in and out of some boats in the harbour. Of course we had to scramble out quickly and splash back to shore when we seen the fisherman who the boat(s) might belong to. Meanwhile, Daddy went scuba diving. He had a fab time, until he realized he had lost his wedding ring. We went back the next day, and enlisted the help of other family members to scuba. Talk about trying to find a needle in a haystack. Unsurprisingly we never found the ring. Of course, it's a sad loss.
Isn't Jack a picture in his wee wetsuit and lifejacket? He loved being part of the wetsuit gang. He enjoyed checking out the boats, paddling, and playing with his bucket and spade. My favourite thing to do is catch crabs. Jack is understandably a bit nervous about this. He doesn't like the thought of his ould Mum getting a nip by one of the beasties. Everyone else is allowed to hold a crab. But not me or Daddy. He's very protective of us, you know.
"C'mere me little Jacky, Let's have a bit of craicy, 'til the boat comes in"
