Hello! I hope everyone has enjoyed a lovely Christmas and New Year! We flew to Michigan and spent two weeks with Chris’ family. It’s always nice to reconnect with them since we only see them once or twice a year. Lewis was a bit shy at first, but warmed up quickly. He especially loved getting in on whatever Uncle Ben was doing, whether that meant trying to play his tablet games for him or sneaking over to steal some of his snacks! The weather was chilly but there was no snow while we were there and we went out to play for at least a little while almost every day. We also kept busy visiting with some of the extended family on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, went to the Toledo Zoo to see the lights, and made a trip to the Hands On Museum in Ann Arbor because Lewis had loved it so much when we went this past summer. Our plane flights both ways were pretty uneventful, and Lewis was an excellent traveler.
We have been home for almost a week now and Lewis transitioned seamlessly back into our every day life. He’s had a haircut and a dentist appointment since we’ve been home, and he did awesome with both and got many comments on how patient/polite/cute/etc. he is. He really seems to be growing up more and more each day!
This next week we have another adventure planned. Chris has work, so he will be staying here, and Lewis and I are going to travel to Vermont for a week spent with my family. This will be our first time really spending time away from Daddy and it will feel a bit strange at first but I know Lewis and I will have fun and Chris may even enjoy having a quiet relaxing house all to himself for a little while!
Most of today’s pictures are from our trip to Michigan, with just a couple thrown in from some shaving cream fun today.
