We are a few days in to our vacation and Jacob seems to be doing well. He is experiencing so many new things and it isn’t too overwhelming yet (we think). Jacob is a real trooper and we are relaxing despite all the work it is to keep him both entertained AND quiet for our hotel room neighbors. We may owe them a bottle of champagne.

One of the highlights from yesterday was a river tour and luau at the Smith Family property on the Wailua river. Jacob took a nap right before getting on the boat, but ended up squealing due to his gums hurting from teething. We gave him some teething tablets, however, and he was happy on the way back. After that he was very hungry and tired, so he fell asleep during the luau dinner. The noise of the crowd and the show woke him up and he stayed awake all the way back to our hotel. Luckily, since he fell asleep closer to 10pm (instead of 6:30 like the first few nights) he slept all the way until 6:30am! Woo hoo!

Today we are going to take him to a little baby beach near our hotel. I think he will have fun splashing in the ocean while Mom is worrying about sand everywhere! We’ll see what happens šŸ™‚
