Okay where to start ... First let me start by saying that we were very very lucky that we had Andy's parents with us. I do not ... repeat DO NOT suggest ANYONE who has a "baby" on a specific schedule to take a cruise by themselves. Tatum can take a NAP anywhere no big deal ... she can differ from her eating schedule 30 minutes either way but her bed time schedule is NOT to be messed with ... which by the way is now 6:30pm - 6:15am! YIKES RIGHT ... well we did not all 6 get to eat as a family together EVER! (for dinner that is) they originally set our dinner for 8 ... even though we requested 6. We argued for 6 several times, never did we get it. Which in the end would not have worked anyway since the baby goes down at 6:30. Thanks to Andy's parents we were able to eat at 6 by our selves 3 times and then one night we ate with Adam and Susan (Andy's brother and his GF) and one night with his mom and dad (thanks to Adam and Susan!) They have never kept her before and we were worried she would wake up while we were out ... she never did! (Good girl) Anyway ... Dinner was a NIGHTMARE however the rest of the cruise was wonderful!

Andy and I got off by ourselves in the Bahamas, Tatum stayed with Grandma and Grandpa!

Here are some random pictures ... hope you enjoy!

Welcome Home! I just caught up on your blog. Your house looks awesome dirty, I can't wait to see it all fixed up! I look forward to reading about your life...

Looks like a good time! I'd recommend Flickr and install their uploader ( Once the Uploader is installed, you can right click on a bunch of photos AT ONCE and select "Send To Flickr". Makes it very easy to upload a bunch at once.

tatum looks so adorable!

and, what hotties you & andy are all dressed up for your night out!

Ahhh looks like so much fun. Never been on a cruise before! I get motion sickness pretty easily and I fear it wouldn't make for a good vacation. Sounds like the pregnancy or any possible morning sickness didn't bother you at all!

Chris said...

Yeah, I agree with Andrea...sounds like you didn't have any issues with MS...I hate you. Just kiddin' LOL! Glad you had a good trip. That's funny about the whole dinner issue. It will get better. We kept LIndsay up so late every night on our trip. Now that we're home she's ASS OUT at 8:15 every night. It's easier when they get a little older. Although you gotta know your kid and get 'em down before they turn into SUPER CRANK. LOL!
Can't wait to see more pics. You and Andy clean up nice. :) Those dressed up pics look great. I like your haircut too.

How fun - you look so happy in those pictures! I've never been on a cruise, but I've told my husband that we should wait until we can go by ourselves.

We have those same Babylegs. Love 'em!
