it's oh so good to be back...

Adam and I have been talking about a specific vacation with just the two of us for quite some time...and just a few months ago Adam surprised me with getting us plane tickets to LA...where we'd take off on a cruise!! :)
That's where we've been this past week...at sea, escaping Utah's chilly winter and visiting Mexico's beautiful and sunny cities of Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, and Mazatlan.

Brooks stayed with Grandma Kjar for a few days, our good friend Penny for one night, and his Grandma Stum (my mom) came into town to stay with him the last few days. They are all ANGELS to watch out sweet Brooks.
And let me tell you,
I have never missed a human being so much as I missed my boy. On the cruise, Adam and I talked about how we knew we'd miss him immensely, but we were surprised (especially me) by how much we really felt that we were missing a part of us. Honestly, it was hard to fully enjoy the first couple days...I drove Adam Ca-Razy by wanting to check my email (news about Brooks from Grandma K) about 25 [thousand] times a day.
But overall, Adam and I soaked up some wonderful R-and-R time together...and enjoyed every minute of it being just the 2 of us. I LOVE THAT MAN!...and I was reminded constantly of why he makes me the luckiest girl in the world.

But it is SO GOOD to be back with this little guy...

Can't wait to record the rest of our trip! But for now, unpacking and doing loads upon loads of laundry are at the top of the list...right below catching up on my snuggles with Brooks!!! :)

PS - that little sore on Brooks' right cheek is a patch of eczima :( Do any of you Moms have little secrets of how to get it healed up??

Wow! How fun! I was definitely wondering where my new blog friend had gone... :)

I know you missed seeing that precious face. I've never left Hudson overnight and I get anxiety just thinking about it. HA!

(I have excema, and boy, it's a pain in the rear. Hudson has had it only a little bit, and his dr. told me just to keep him very moisturized with Aveeno lotion...it cleared his up really quick!)

Sounds like so much fun! As for the excema, for Logan, my doc recommended beta-HC 1% solution, it is a mild steriod and it works really really well. You can get it at the pharmacy and we use it twice a day on all his excema spots (including the one on his cheek). Then we use aquaphor after baths and on the spots if they need moisture during the day. He has some allergies and sensitive skin and this has really helped him.
