Happy Fourth of July for those of you here in the United States of America. For the rest of you, well, I hope you have a good day at work. Once nice thing about a day off is it gives you a chance to sit back and relax a bit. And in my case, catch up on this week in Alex.
Of course, as most of you know, the three of us spent last week in Southern California, Santa Monica and Costa Mesa specifically. I had a training meeting out at the old FileNet offices and one last hurrah with the old team before I move to my new position. But wait, this blog isn’t supposed to be about me, but about Alex.
Anyway. While I was working, Alex and mommy were able to take a much needed vacation and spend some time relaxing. When not by the pool at the hotel, Felicia and Alex were walking around the area or hanging out with friends. See pictures: Sunny California and The Camp, OC.
In addition to the pictures, here’s a quick Flip Magic Video of the trip. Now, when preparing this, I missed two videos, so if you’re not in the video but spent time with Alex, my apologies.
We all had a good time on the trip and Alex seemed to do quite well for a 4 month old child. He did have a couple of moments, but otherwise, he was just happy to be brought along. His curiosity seems to know no bounds and one of his favorite activities is to look around and just enjoy watching the world go by.
He still loves color, but has started to key in a bit more on other things as well. He’s also started to decide that sitting up is a much better way to look around. He can only sit in the stroller for so long before he decides he wants out. And when he wants out, he will tell you about it by arching his back and squealing.
Ups: We’re back home in DC and very glad for it. At least I am. I think mommy might have been able to take a second week of vacation.
Downs: I guess the biggest downer for the week was the schedule. I had to work all day and with Alex and the rest of us stuck in limbo somewhere between eastern and pacific time, by the time I got off work, Alex was almost ready for bed.
