Savannah take 2

We went on a family vacation with my mom, dad, my siblings and their kids (minus the twins) last weekend to Savannah. We haven't all been on a trip together in years so it was a real joy to be able to hang out together for 3 days in a row. We went to a local cemetery that is so beautiful that they turned it into a park, we went down River Street, Fort Pulaski, Tybee Island, Forsyth Park, another ghost tour, and ate some great food.

The only down side to this trip is that Cooper decided that he hated our hotel room. He would fall asleep for about 2 hours but would wake up crying. The next room tapped on our wall so it was a little nerve wracking. So, he slept on my chest both nights to keep from me having to go to the next room for a come to Jesus meeting. Like really, dude, do you think his crying is music to my ears? Really, how do you keep a baby from crying for the entire night? Now, my mommy heart enjoyed our closeness but my back not so much. Homeboy is a good 22 pounds now and having him on your chest for 8+ hours is hard on the whole 32 year old body.

For those familiar with Savannah, could you please tell me when it's not hotter than sin there? Geez!

I can't believe I'm putting a pic of me in my bathing suit on here but I love this one of us together

I turn my back for a moment and nana gives him licorice...he only got a few licks in before mommy confiscated the contraband, well, I had to get a picture didn't I? ;)


  1. I love the pic of him with his cousins!! He is sooooo cute!!

  2. I have a friend who just visited Savannah as well and she couldn't say enough about how nice (but hot!) it was! She's pregnant, so that made it seem even hotter, I'm sure.

    I'm so sorry you had a terrible wall-mate in the hotel. You're totally right - like I love to hear my baby cry and am poking him so it keeps up. What are you suppose to do?! You're a good mommy for holding him all night!

  3. You just look adorable!!!! That's a great picture of the two of you!!

    My parents used to live in Savannah for a long time. It's pretty much always hot there, though sometimes, right around Christmas, you may get to wear a sweater!!!

    Honestly, who knocks on a wall to quiet a baby in a hotel???? For real? Like you were purposely planning that? Good grief. You're nice, I'd have had to have the come-to-Jesus anyway. Does ANYONE want to hear a baby cry all night? NO. CERTAINLY not his parents who love him and hurt when he cries!! Sometimes, that's just what happens when you are in that hotel room or on that airplane. It's life. I'd have just constantly knocked on their wall to annoy them more. Maybe they'd try to get a different room and leave you alone!
