Aunt Addie and Isaac drove in from Philly on Friday to spend the day with us, and it was such a treat to enjoy the day with them. The last time we saw Isaac (about a month and a half ago) he and AlteLu were the same size. Now that little man has bypassed his older cousin in size! Isaac is a wonderful little man, crawling and smiling all over the place. How wonderful to have such cousin love!
The cousins loved the beach, and on Friday night we went out for a nice family dinner. There were 3 grown-ups and 3 kids at the table. As we were leaving the table behind us commented, "Oh, we didn't even know there were children at the table!" Well behaved children indeed!
Something else that made this weekend special, is that our two little lovers shared a room for the first time! This is a goal Jacob and I have had since before Alte was born. When we travel, we want for AlteLu and HBB to share a room--and they did! The first night Alte woke up around 4am. Jacob and I listened over the monitor to see what was going to happen. After a few minutes we heard Hersh say "SSSHHHHH" and then silence:)
On Friday, after Hersh's bike ride on the boardwalk, all three kids were playing. AlteLu had a necklace around her neck. Hersh was trying to trap her, but instead he said, "AlteLu, you are so attractive!" Addie and I thought it was hilarious! Another funny Hershism from this weekend--when we were finishing dinner on Friday, we were deciding on dessert. Addie decided to get a canoli. Hersh then started saying, "I want a canoli, I want a canoli." After ordering a canoli, Hersh said, "What's a canoli?!?"
AlteLu enjoyed vacation as well. She loved being back on the beach. We brought with us a baby doll she received as a gift, and she now walks around saying, "Ba-ba" and hugging the baby. She is out of control deliciously cute.
