The Beach in January

Mid-January, with a high of 77.  Seriously?  So we seized this bizarre warm weekend by going to the beach!  We decided around midnight on Friday night to take this spur of the moment trip.  Charleston really isn't that far away (just under 2 hours) and we snagged a cheap hotel off of Priceline.  Saturday morning we got things packed up and took off to the Isle of Palms.  The kids were so excited!  Sunday morning the fog was so thick. I loved Maddex's little fluff of hair as soon as the mist hit it.  Like dew on a spider web.

Most of the time all I could see of the kids were just their silhouettes.  It was kind of whimsical actually.  Here's a little video montage of our trip.  We had a great time.

Maddex is two months old today, and I'm happy to say she SMILES!  She started throwing real ones out just before Christmas and hasn't stopped since.  I might even venture out to say that I think she's getting a little cute, but don't tell Brian.  He still thinks she's in 'the phase' know, the ugly one.  Too harsh?  We love her anyway.

You know that scene in Tarzan where the mother gorilla looks at the baby and then they both go "ehuh?".  This is that face.

  I try and try to get her smiling, but as soon as she sees the camera I've lost her.  I was able to get some video though of her this morning.  Don't worry, I'll spare you from my baby talk and replace it with some music that'll give you the warm and fuzzies.
