DH's family did their thing and I feel after being together nine years, I am past the point of trying to impress. I bore a child and all attention should be focused on said child and DH. I am an "in-law" who has given a child and therefore given the pass to eat, read and drink in peace while eating my weight in cookies. LO got a 10 hour stomach flu on Christmas Eve night which really just sucked. She vomited every 20 minutes for 10 hours so DH and I just walked around looking like zombies. Then we all passed out for 12 hours straight in a full bed and woke up like new people. She passed on her stomach bug to a few other family members but not DH and I--hahahaha suckers! No, I do feel bad about that one but not like horrible.
Then we hit Manhattan and I got that itchy I have MAPPED OUT everything and we need to leave this instant for the FUN to begin. We had a great time in the city and did a lot of fun stuff uptown and downtown. LO was not big on Manhattan and had a few breakdowns concerning the number of people in her close proximity and the cold. We broke down and bribed her with a paci for all of the outside walking.
She also enjoyed the bathtub at the hotel.
Lastly, in picture documentation, I just couldn't resist.
