It’s been too long since I was on my blog and I have to admit, I have missed it. Whenever we are travelling, I find it quite difficult to find the hours in the day to sit at a computer looking through pictures and making a post. I prefer to be outside, away from all screens and artificial light, enjoying what is happening in that moment.
Then, whenever I come back to my blog, I can relive all the great things we have shared in the last days/weeks/months.
As usual, this year, we celebrated Christmas in Florida.
I am extremely grateful to say, Noah, again, behavoud like a champion on the travel day… he didn’t shed 1 tear from 8am when we left home in Dublin, until we arrived at our hotel in Fort Myers at 2am (1 night stay before going to the house.) He is my little seasoned traveller, travelling at 35,000 feet on 16 occasions!
Noah was the man of the house for the first 10 days and helped us chose and decorate our Christmas tree. So began his fascination with “balls” (Get your mind out of the gutter!) From that day, he hasn’t stopped shouting “red” “gold” “baaaaaaawwww” at anything that resembles a round Christmas tree decoration.
The first 10 days were filled with trips to every single shopping destination South West Florida has to offer. For me, there is no other time of year like it. I adore the excitement of buying gifts for family and friends and am almost sad when they’re all wrapped up under the tree. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you catch my drift.
We took Noah to visit Santa for the first time. Neither Noah or Santa seemed to be enjoying it. 30 dollars I will never see again.
Hopefully next year, he will enjoy it. Noah too.
Christmas Eve cycle around Naples…
I wonder what year it will be where my son is the most excited person in the house.
We didn’t stay too long because we had a little teething boy with a temperature.
Last year, Noah had no clue what was going on and was still waking a lot in the night, keeping his Mama on her toes!
This year, he loved the tree, all the lights, talking about “Haha” (Santa) and the fact he got to spend every day with his Nannie, Papi and Auntie Jaja.
I didn’t stop taking pictures, so there will be a lot more to come from our month in Florida.
Have a great Sunday evening!
