Today

Yesterday we moved from Guat City to Antigua to spend a few days here.  Today was just a hang out day and it felt great.  After breakfast Grandpa and I took Nathanael on a swing ride.  He had so much fun and his grin was so big that you could almost see all the way down his throat.  Nathanael spent a good part of the day hanging with daddy.  Dad wore him out and he conked out at 7:00pm!  Right now, he’s sleeping very soundly between Joe and I.  It’s only matter of hours before he wakes up starving like a mad man but right now, all is good.

Tomorrow we are going to see some Mayan ruins and then on Sat we return home.  When Nathanael touches down in Houston, he’ll be a US citizen. 

Nathanael has been sleeping fairly well.  He wakes up 2 -3 times a night but after a bottle and some cuddle time, he’s back asleep.  It’s nothing like the drama/trauma we experienced in March when he was teething and had an ear infection.  Nathanael gets all cranky when he wakes up but when he sees me fixing the bottle, he waits patiently. 

A car alarm is ringing like crazy and I want to kill the car owner.  I mean, what the hell, it’s laid back Antigua and 9:30pm.  If Nathanael is woken up by this car alarm . . .
