So to celebrate that we survived the first 12 weeks of parenthood, we planned a last second vacation down to the beaches of North Carolina in the Outer Banks. We got a fantastic house right on the beach and let me tell you….we could not wait to get there. Finn handled the LONG drive well – we only had to stop once for a break and in general, he took feedings right in his car seat from the bottle, then snoozed the remainder of the time. We did make a bonehead move and not have me sit with him the first few hours – not smart. Lots of grunting and noises…and he generally seemed annoyed to be in the carseat for an extended period of time. Once I moved back there, he seemed to do better so I spent the last 4 hours of the drive sitting in the middle of the backseat (not comfortable) hanging with Finn. Worth it of course!
Enjoy a snapshot of our week at the beach, from the ride down, to the “Derecho” storm that hit the east coast, and our introduction of the sand and waves to Finn!
