Happy Easter!

For London's first Easter, we decided to spend the holiday in North Carolina with Mike's mom (AKA: Abuela). I must admit the idea of a 7 hour car trip with a 6 week old and 2 of the dogs (Leia and Abby) did NOT sound like much fun to me. However everything turned out really well. I would love to say that London acted like a perfect little angel for his first Easter, however most of the weekend looked alot like this...


And I am pretty sure he is trying to express his feelings about the weekend in this picture...



I will say though he wasn't bad the entire weekend, which judging by this picture it even surprised him a little...


For some reason London has become extremely clingy recently. He has to be held 24/7 or else he screams so loud that you would think his little world is about to end. If he falls asleep and you try to lay him down he immediately wakes up and screams at you until he is in your arms again. Oh and when I say YOUR arms, I mean MY arms. He is not very fond of anyone but Mommy holding him. I'm not quite sure what is going on with him right now, but I do know it HAS to stop. He won't even sleep in his own bed anymore. I know having him sleep in our bed is not the greatest idea, but a girls GOTTA sleep sometime. When he is with me, he is happy as a clam. He only wakes up 2-3 times a night and goes right back to sleep after he eats (so I am only up for about 10 mins at a time). Mike and I have a little plan to try to get him into his own bed again SOON. So I will keep all of you updated on how that goes.

Here are a few other pictures from the weekend.






I have to admit some of the best moments of the weekend (for ALL of us) were spent like this...


And my favorite...

Oh Mr. London!!! Chase went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago...from about week 6 to week 10, but now we have entered week 12 and he is super fun and full of life! We need to get together soon!

Soooo are you tired of hearing about gripe water yet? Well it is my saving grace that is why! haha. Don't worry about the whole sleeping in bed deal, Scarlett sleeps in bed with me for half the night. It is sooo much easier and I love the extra cuddle time. Don't worry about feeling bad or what anyone else says, do what is best for you and your sweet/ADORABLE baby boy :o)
