Jaxon's new thing: to stick out his tongue when you are taking his picture. Just another lovely 3 year old trait.
Notice those seagulls over there? Jax was not a fan of them lingering. I thought after his crazy bird experience he would steer clear, but not so much. He went right over there to scare them away.
After an hour or so at the beach, we had dinner and headed to the hotel.
The nice thing about having an independent three year old is that he WANTED to carry his suitcase!
With his tongue out of course.
My plan was to give Jaxon a bath and put him to bed. He didn't sleep on the drive over, so he had to be tired. Early bedtime right? Well, Daddy and Jaxon made other plans. They thought it would be fun to go swimming at 7:30. And they were right.
They are "best pals". Jaxon told Brian this a few times on the trip, "Daddy, you're my best pal." See, he CAN be sweet!
A week or so before our trip I had a light bulb moment... Jaxon may not fit in the pack 'n play we ordered! Yes, Jaxon is still in a crib with no plans of leaving soon. Brian had the brilliant idea of bringing our air mattress just in case. And thank goodness I had that moment of brilliance because sure enough, he was too long for that pack 'n play.
We put him back in bed. At 4:00 am I hear him crying, "I don't want to sleep here." So what's a good mom to do? I take my pillow and lay down next to him. This is unprecedented in our house. We have NEVER let Jaxon sleep with us. I felt sad for the little guy. Well, I paid for it. He was awake from 4:00 am until 6:00. Playing. Yes. Playing with his dinosaurs, fire truck, ambulance and cars. Sweet. I was up again at 8:00 and that little rascal slept until 9:30 am.
