We went on vacation a little over a month ago and had a great time. Vacation for us is such a relaxing and bonding time as a family. We never get that much uninterrupted (a relative term with 3 children!) as a family so it's always a great week to recharge. Silas had issues about being in a new place and I think it stirred up some trust issues. It was definitely a challenge at times, but overall we had a fabulous time. Once we were back we worked really hard and focused on attachment with him and he's doing awesome now! So anyway, what you really want to see is a few pictures! I say "few" because I took...A LOT. So I just decided to post a couple beachy pictures. Maybe I'll post some others at another time!
Silas right after stepping on the sand our first evening there. He didn't totally hate it...yet. 5 minutes later was another story!
Maya checking out the powerful waves
Gibson doing a little happy dance
The look we got from him when we took them to the beach the next day. Ha!
Little Lulu looking out on the water
Gibson "kung-fu-ing" the ocean
Lil' bub snuggling Daddy
Fun in the sun and waves!
Yes, I was there. Although I think I only have 3 pics to document that fact!
By the end of the week we had him sitting in the sand and splashing in a bucket. He still didn't like the sand or waves, but we were thrilled with the progress!
