Anything special going on this month? We are going on vacation to Aruba in a few weeks. We went when DD was roughly the same age Lio is last time, and she loved it, so I'm hoping he likes it as much as she did. And can't wait to see him in the ocean! Oh, and though it's not terribly "special" we did discover a few months back that Lio is VERY allergic to wheat and dairy...so he's had a bit or two of solids here and there, but all the things I automatically want to give him are off limits, ha ha.
