Vacation in Savannah

We spent some time on vacation in Savannah GA. It was the longest time we've spent away from Andrew, and we definitely missed him! Both Grandma Bergman & Grandma Meier watched Andrew while we were away!

We stayed in a vacation rental house for the week. The inside was very cute, looked like a model home straight from HGTV.

We spent two days at Tybee Island soaking-up the sun.

The lighthouse on Tybee island is one of the oldest on the eastern seaboard. After 178 steps, and several breaks, we made it up to the top for some great views.

Savannah is one of the oldest cities in the country and we especially liked walking around the historic district. There were so many impressive old mansions and huge live oak trees, parks and monuments, it would take a month to see it all.

We spent a most of our evenings on River Street. The old buildings and cotton warehouses along the riverfront are now home to all kinds of bars and restaurants.
In Savannah, it is legal to have an open container. You could request a to-go-cup, and take your drink anywhere. Tim took full advantage of that. Sometimes he would get a beer to go, just because he could. With that into consideration, the city was amazingly clean.

We met Ted Bergman's twin. He was the singer of the band in one the bars we stopped at. From across the room, he had a remarkable resemblence. We laughed so hard just watching his moves and mannerisms that we swore we were looking at Ted.

He was happy to pose for a picture. Thumbs up, of course.

We had a great time on vacation and got some much needed time away from all the hustle and bustle, but this time it was different. We were very anxious to get back home and see our little guy and his big smiles.

New Tricks

In the last few week, Andrew has learned a few new "tricks." He learned how to pick-up a puff off his highchair tray and successfully put it into his mouth. After eating a few, it becomes difficult when the puffs stick to his fingers. He is doing a great job sitting-up. He has more control and is able to bounce and not fall over. He is not crawling yet. He will move one arm, the other arm, kick his legs, but he can't seem to get things moving all together.
