Back From the Beach ...

and back to everyday life! Including Aiden NOT NAPPING! Aiden napped so well on vacation ... maybe it was the breeze from the ocean, maybe it was the "we're not doing anything but relaxing" atmosphere, maybe he was just plum worn out from not napping at home! But he napped,
and napped ....

and napped ....Now, when we first got there Aiden got his first cold. Probably because right before we left, I took the snot syringe thingy out of his diaper bag thinking we wouldn't need it. Wrong answer. He ran a small fever the first couple of days and was just stuffy nosed after that and still his happy little self (see his beach pics on the side bar).

This was our first time to Daytona beach. It was nice, but we liked the beaches & atmosphere in Destin much better. The weather was great! Low 90's, but humid and always a good breeze ... a lot better than the hot Texas heat! We spent our days at the pool or on the beach (and from the advice of our wonderful audi, left the hearing aids off and in the room). One day we walked over to the water park, which was right across the street (which, Aiden slept the whole time at!). After the past couple of years we've had, it was just so nice to get away and forget it all!

We came back to 107 degree weather (gotta love Texas) and a broken air conditioner (upstairs one)! Thank goodness they both weren't out and we found one company to come out and fix it the next day.

So we're back into the swing of things, school starts in 2 weeks (woo hoo!) and we'll continue on with Aiden's appts. He has his weekly AVT sessions, ECI (PT & his TOD - Teacher of the Deaf) will be coming out, another audi. appt on the 22nd, and then on Sept. 5th, we have his MRI! All this said with a smile on my face! Here we go!

Boy, am I jealous!! I would love to be at the beach. Looks like you had a wonderful time. It is so nice to be able to get away and relax, to forget for a little bit about your everyday life and everything that has to get done.
Hope all goes well with all of the appointments.

It is nice that you got a beach vacation under your belts before all the appointments you have coming up! There is nothing better than a sleeping baby, and it looks like Aiden and the beach get along very nicely!

It looks like Aiden is such a good napper and a little beach bum! Glad you all had a good time.

It was so wonderful chatting with you tonight!
