Well all in all our first holiday abroad was an amazing success, mostly because BB is such a laid back baby.
In part 1 I told you how much of a great time he was having on his jollies.
Well as the week progressed, he enjoyed it even more! From his daily swim in a
nice heated indoor pool, to his midnight location change from his cot to mummy
and daddies bed! (Officially the first time he has co-slept with me and the
Through the whole holiday, he has been a very happy chappy, he has dealt
well with many strangers approaching and touching and even got a laugh out of
the waiters speaking Arabic. The waiter tried to convince us babies could speak
all languages and the way BB responded I couldn’t disagree.
He loved his swimming and he even enjoyed a little a play in the sun after
daddy insisted he was absolutely covered in factor 50! Even on days where the
sun shone, it was pretty windy so the temperature remained good enough to
sunbath for the adults, but not too hot for the smaller people amongst us. Granddad

service at the bar and the staff always wanted to help. The only down fault was

mummy's milk a couple of times a day. The rooms were great and the beds were
really comfy and massive, which is why we were happy for BB to spend some time
in bed with us. It was great waking up with him smiling at your face, but I don’t
think it is something we will continue at home.
Hopefully we will continue to enjoy holidays as a family both here in the UK and abroad.
