Not sure I will do it again...
Hulk and I left on Friday night and made our trip up to Saco, ME. The place we stayed at was beautiful - right across the street from the beach. It was a sort of dormitory, so we were put in a room by ourselves - but with 2 bunk beds and barely enough space for the pack and play - but I made it work. All the friends I met up there were a lot of fun, and the first night, he went to sleep pretty well - went down around 8, got up at 4 for a bottle and then slept again until 7.
Saturday the weather was BEAUTIFUL and we sat outside and knit, did a little yoga on the beach, and went for a few walks. Hulk was wonderful, smiling with everyone, napping on and off - really enjoying himself! I was thinking how my baby was the most perfect baby in the universe. One of the women that was up there with us was also pregnant, so we made a trip to a consignment shop which was suggested to me by Baby Smiling in the BackSeat - and that place is great! I got a few new to me shirts and so did my friend.
Things kind of started to go downhill on Saturday night. Hulk was tired and so was I. I brought him to bed at 8, and we fell asleep - but he managed to wake up every. single. hour. the entire night. And because we were in these dorms, with thin walls - I really couldn't just let him fuss... because that would wake everyone else up. It was brutal. Finally, around 5, I brought him into the tiny twin bed with me and cuddled him to sleep... where he slept until 8 (and I lost all feeling in my right side). Sunday morning, we drove home, and I haven't been so happy to see Aaron in a long time! I fed Hulk his lunch, and we went upstairs to bed and both napped for about 2.5 hours.
Hulk is still having trouble sleeping (I'm thinking it's the end of his cold that is bugging him when he sleeps)... but at least we were home, and Aaron switched him to the swing, and he happily slept for 5 hours. It was a fun trip - but pretty much made it clear that doing this the last week of July for a full week is insanity. So I'm going to cancel that trip and just hang out at home and relax.
