beach day 3

We had really hoped that as the week went on, Bryce would get adjusted to being on vacation. Last night we borrowed Kelly's pack n' play to see if Bryce would sleep any better in that than the rented crib. He made it about 2 hours before he woke up and I couldn't get him back to sleep. I took him out and rocked him until he fell back asleep. Instead of putting him back in the bed, I did something I said I would NEVER do; I put him in the bed with us. Bryce got a great night sleep in my arms, but I didn't get any sleep since I'm not great at sleeping on my back.

He was ready to eat at 4:30 and then ready to be awake soon after. Yesterday morning I sat on the balcony with Bryce and we watched the sun rise. Today Jason and Bryce walked the beach BEFORE the sun came up. So any sleeping and napping patterns we had before vacation are definitely a thing of the past. I'm not feeling so great as a result of the lack of sleep I'm getting. Without going into too much detail, it has affected my efforts to get Bryce onto formula before I go back to school. I'm now forced to feed him which makes going out to the beach a bit harder. We didn't make it out there today and we only lasted at the pool for about an hour. Bryce did enjoy sitting on the balcony today.
Bryce is very observant and he enjoys watching the cars go by. He is great at following them with his eyes as they pass. Below is a video of the only entertainment from today.
