Ever since the evening we got back from Charleston, Emery has picked up the ability to pull herself up from a railing like the ones on her crib or in her play pen. At first she was struggling with all her might to put up on foot and then the other, but now she is getting quite good at quickly pull herself up and peering over the rails. When she first did it, Emery was so happy she start laughing and screaming for joy. She’s a fighter and didn’t give up, try after try she finally got it.
I am sitting on a enclosed patio deck in a rocking chair sipping my favorite iced coffee, listening to music. Ash is curled up in a lawn chair next to me reading a gossip magazine and Nai Nai is to my other side playing with Emery. Yup we are on vacation!
We are in a beach home in Charleston, South Carolina this week and loving the relaxation. We traveled together with the Lo’s. They have a little daughter as well Eva, so Emery had another small person in company. We’ve been taking in sights, sounds and tastes of the south in our vacation getaway.
Charleston has a lot of rich history and we got to visit and old southern plantation call Boone Hall. It dated back to 1600s and had over 300 slaves at one point producing cotton, indigo, rice and bricks. It was raining the day we were there but still gorgeous and just like the one in Gone With the Wind.
We also had some great food while here. Did not know it is one of the great culinary cities in America. We ate southern cuisine many of which were local southern ingredients from the produce to the the seafood. Ash, being a seafood had a blast with tuna and shrimp everyday!
Best of all the vacation home rental at Folly Beach was awesome. We spent a lot of time just lounging at the house both inside and out. Here are some more photos from our trip.
Last night a long awaited event took place. Emery and her Great Grandmother (whom Ashley and I call Nai Nai) safely arrived in Atlanta! Nai Nai was so excited and happy to see Emery and Emery felt the same way. The two hit it off immediately. Nai Nai is going to stay 2 months with us here in Atlanta and bond with her great grand daughter! Emery is so lucky.
