Getaway to Palm Springs and Super Baby


Ryan had to be in Palm Springs for work so I decided to go and stay with him for the night. Not a far drive for a free night's stay and dinner.


It was supposed to be dinner with Ryan's co-workers and their spouses. Turns out one of the guy's spouse couldn't make it so he invited the new Division President. Awesome. So it ended up being like a marketing meeting and here I am the only one who doesn't work for Pulte and I have a baby with me. Ryan thought it wouldn't be awkward so I tagged along. We first met up in the bar which was not as bad as it sounds, the worst was yet to come. Who knew we were going to eat at a fancy steak restaurant like Ruth's Chris? Camryn did well for the first 20 minutes when she slept! But the rest of the time I was either walking around with her or Ryan was both of us trying to calm her down and scarf down our $40 Filet mignon. Finally after her pacifier fell and we were all searching for it under the table. I decided to head back to the room. They all kept telling me it was fine and that she wasn't that bad but I will know it is my fault when Ryan gets laid off!!!


So of course I take Camryn back to the room and she does this! She was instantly good the moment I walked out. The camera isn't straight on because she would immediately stop talking as soon as she saw it. It is long, I apologize I did this mostly for myself.

Ryan recently discovered that Camryn loves to fly... what he calls "Super Baby!" She puts her arms back and keeps her legs completely straight out. She loves it!

This picture is priceless! You have got to love both their faces!

After staying the night in a comfy bed I went to the outlets and enjoyed the 85 degree weather. It was a fun little outing even though it may be my last!

How could any one not LOVE that little face?!? If the marketing team has an issue with Camryn, they'll have to take it up with Grandma Smart! I could listen to her talk all day long. I know how much she loves to be moving at all times (including flying); therefore I predict she will be a dancer like her mommy. Heaven forbid she goes into marketing!

Oh man! I really feel for you! It's bad enough when you are the only one with a baby and your sweet baby doesn't want to go to a fancy restaurant and be quiet:( But at a work function. So sorry! I do think there's something about restaurants and babies...I don't have great luck...anytime I usually plan on doing something and either count on my baby sleeping through it or I try to adjust their eating schedule to account for my schedule...and it'll flop on me! Sometimes restaurants are too dark, sometimes too noisy...and sometimes too quiet:) And she's so aware now and she just wants to play:)

We love them anyways!

Diddo Carrie! She just didn't want to be there did she! Oh well, hopefully Ryan doesn't get fired. GLad you had a little getaway anyways. Love my niece and all her talking!

It sure does get different as they get a little older - some things are easier and some are harder! My babies didn't usually cooperate very well at restaurants either. She is so cute talking to herself and stuff. She just wanted to hang out!! Too bad it was awkward - that's so hard!

Love the daddy/daugther pic! So happy!

Brittany and Derek said...

Oh my goodness! When you first told me that story I was cringing- but then looking at your video clip I melt! Camryn is so talkative and girly- I love it!! And that superman picture makes her look so big and so old! i have got to hold that little girl before she gets any bigger!

Sally said...

Oh I love it! So funny and so not:) I remember similar feelings! Oh kids!

Awwww...I'm happy you made it through the first couple of months, too. They really can be rough and sometimes it's hard to believe people when they say it's temporary. Eating and sleeping will get even better each month :)

Restaurants will get worse...in about a year. I debate whether I should even take Lennon in public these days. I just can't run that fast anymore...

And Ryan, I'm feeling great! More than halfway there and not sick at all. Now I just look forward to my stomach stretching beyond my wildest dreams and even tighter jeans. Nice combination.

Camryn is so freaking adorable. She is such a girly girl and I love those big blue eyes! Ethan loves to do Super Baby too, but he's a little too hefty for me to do it with him at the moment.
