Las Vegas, the Baby Way

Jillian loved the shinning lights of Las Vegas. We took an impromptu trip to the desert over mother's day weekend. We spent two amazing evenings at Mandalay Bay. We made visits to the pool, some fine dining (if you count burgers and fries) and a show (Beatles Love - Highly Recommend it). Tim and Jillian also squeezed in some time to visit the Shark Reef.

There have been lots of firsts for Jillian over the last two weeks. Not only did she experience her first flight and first limo ride, but she is getting her first tooth. I discovered it on Saturday, and there it is: a small little peek of white poking through on her bottom gum.

She also had her first cold. The jury is still out on if it's allergies or a cold. During our stay in Vegas, she didn't acclimate well to the dry desert climate. It was windy, lots of dust in the air, and the recycled casino air wasn't exactly helping the situation. She was really fussy the day she was flying home. Tim was worried about the flight, but said once she was in the airport she was as giddy as can be. She still has a runny nose, but honestly her mood is still as happy as can be, so we feel lucky her sleep and eating hasn't been affected too much.

I stayed in Vegas 4 more nights for work and was able to squeeze in some fun too.
