The Beach & Milk and Cookies

We have finally got our bags unpacked and recovered from the beach. We had so much fun! I have added a few pictures from our adventure. The beach picture is right outside of Sea n Suds (our favorite seafood restaurant) and the other is us riding a Ferris Wheel in Orange Beach at The Wharf. It was a great time for us to reconnect and relax. The look on Will's face when we walked in the door on Friday made the whole thing even better. He was so happy to see Daddy & Mommy!

So I have to tell you about the milk and cookie treat Will had last night. First, I have to tell you that we are finally off the bottle! Yeah!!! While we were gone to the beach his Nana taught him how to drink out of a straw so when we got him on Friday we put away the bottles and are only using straw sippy cups. He got very upset about it on Saturday but after he worked through that he was fine. So yesterday while I was folding laundry I was having a little snack of Oreo cookies. I looked away for just a minute and the next thing I know Will has dumped out the cookies and has one in his mouth. So there in the floor Will had his first milk and cookies. He was so cute with Oreo and milk all over his face.

Such sweet pictures of the two of you. I am so happy that you were able to get away and be together at the beach.

Looks like Will just couldn't resist those oreo cookies!


Cute pictures of ya'll at the beach and of Will eating. That cracks me up! Looks like something mine would do. Mine are starting to enjoy "real" tastes much better. Glad ya'll got to get away. It is nice to have a break and some alone time. I must admit...I'm a little jealous. We'll get to get away again one day. :)

You look so rested. It was great getting to see you Wednesday night!

Congrats on moving to a sippee cup...I remember stressing a little when Avery tried to refuse to move up.
