Tooth #3 came in this week (his top left chomper). This one has been the most painful for all of us. Lawson was more uncomfortable, but the combimation of Motrin, Teething Tablets, and cold teethers seem to help some. However, Lawson is still waking up in the middle of the night 2-4 times.
Lawson has started to "babble". His first "word", just like Harleigh, was MAMAMAMA!!! I love it! It's the sweetest hearing him say it in his little innocent voice. I know as he gets older that voice will change and may sound more like Will Ferrell's in Wedding Crashers, "Maaa....meatloaf", so for now I'll enjoy it!
Today marks our 5 year anniversary for Zak and I. It's hard to believe that in 5 years we've bought a house, had two beautiful kids, had job changes/promotions, bought and sold cars, amazing vacations, weddings, and funerals and so much more. I couldn't have survived without Zak's calm response to pressure and change. The 5th anniversary is usually a gift with wood. We have a tradition of buying gifts for each year (i.e., Year 1 - paper, Year 2- cotton, Year 3- Leather, and so on). Zak always comes up with a creative way to incorporate the "traditional" gift for each year. However, this year we've got it covered, we decided we're going to go on a trip! Plane tickets, made of paper, paper is from trees, trees are made of wood- CHECK!
Since we plan to do a trip, I thought I would give my top 5 trips we've taken together.
Top 5 Trips-
5. Honeymoon- Cabo San Lucas (all-inclusive)
4. Chicago- Ritz Carlton downtown, architecture boat tour, largest faris wheel ride, pregnant with Lawson, Second City Comedy Club, best restaurants
3. Maine- First and Last car ride up and down the east coast, had a great family oriented trip
2.Greece Trip- Venice, Corfu, Crete, Mykonos, Santorini,Olympia
1. Eurotrip- Barcelona, Malta, Naples, Rome, Florence, Cannes- came back pregnant with Harleigh
I'm looking forward to more miles and stamps in our passport as we go on this journey together. Happy 5 years, Zak!
