Mommy & Daddy spent a lot of time reading on the porch over looking the beach. I played in the room and on the porch.
It gave me a lot of time to practice my crawling and standing skills. I stood up by myself for the first time using the lounge chairs on the deck. I even got to 'free-range' as a naked baby for a while.
It was a nice little peaceful village tucked in the bay... well peaceful except for the rooster at 4 in the morning, the rain on the roof, and me! It would have been perfect with some A/C (or cooler temps) and fewer bugs.
