Blame it on Mexico!!

This is where we spent a lot of time on our vacation, taking naps along the beach.

We took a few naps here too...

This was our friend Coco Loco, he always had a way of showing up to help cool us off.

Most vacations you don't want to spend time in your room, but we kinda liked ours. We didn't even have to leave to go to the pool.

Don't worry we didn't spend too much time napping and resting. We went for a few walks along the beach...

...and got a massage.

The accommodations we really nice, and so were the views.

Like I said, not too shabby ;)

Time to rest again.

Date night, every night!

Our favorite lunchtime spot.

Our friend is back.

Checking up on the munchkin back home.

We came home to this little devil angel and he loved helping us unpack. My velcro rollers were a hit.

As you can tell we took a little time away from baby little K to celebrate our third year wedding anniversary. We spent 5days and 4 nights in Riviera Maya, Mexico. It was the first time since K was born to leave him overnight. I was very nervous about leaving him. In the nights prior to our departure I would wake up with horrible anxiety attacks. I knew he would be safe with my parents and family but his cochlear implants were my main concern. Would they notice right way when his batteries went out?. Would they make sure he was on the right settings? Would they know when to adjust them if he was uncomfortable? What if they lost one? So many what ifs.  I  then realized that I was making myself crazy and I really needed this vacation! We both needed a little regrouping time. I know becoming first time parents is not an easy thing, but wow we definitely did not get the "easy" baby for sure. First came the hearing loss diagnosis, then the colic, the reflux, teething, sleeping problems, sensory integration issues, cochlear implants, his consistent clinginess, I could go on and on. K and I pretty much cried all day and night for the first nine months of his life. Now at 15 mo we still deal with the whining and crying ( much better after implants) but we are now finally able to have our heads above water. We love that boy, but we needed a break!

Our vacation was great and just what we needed. We did exactly as we planned, nothing.  We ate lots of food and lounged around the pool and beach. Our internal clocks are set to "K time"so we slept in until 8am, but stayed in bed until 9 because we could. We are so thankful that we were able to spend some time alone  to say I love you and remember why we married each other. It's something we often forget in the hustle and bustle of daily life.

We returned home to find our son safe and sound. He had a wonderful time being spoiled rotten. He was so happy... until he saw his parents. He apparently was very angry at us for leaving him. He wanted nothing to do with us at first. He cried on and off for about five hours, until he went to bed. The next day and since then he won't leave my side and his stranger anxiety is at an all time peak.  I can't even get up from a sitting to standing position with him going into panic mode. Yikes! we're in trouble now. Blame it on Mexico!
