These past two weeks packed with many “firsts” for Elle-belle Nugget Lady! (The nicknames are never-ending these days!) Not only did she take her first boat ride (Ferry) but she flew on 4 planes and took a major step by rolling over while we were away! She is going to be mobile before we know it!
I am going to do a specific post on traveling with an infant, but for now, here is a photo round-up of our amazing 8 days in Nevis.
We left NYC early am on Friday. Here is Mach doing some laps with Elle to keep her asleep while we waited to board.
Some snuggles in preparation to take off!
We found a quiet spot to nurse and give a bottle during our layover in San Juan! First leg of the trip was over! She did great!
We had a pretty small plane into St. Kitts, but Elle did great and barely made a peep.
We waited at the airport for the rest of the family to arrive on a different flight. They were definitely more excited to see Ellery than us.
We arrived early evening to the Four Seasons Nevis. Our villa had a little pool out back. We wasted no time taking a quick dip before getting ready for dinner. Elle’s first swimming experience was so much fun!
We managed to squeeze in her morning nap sometime around breakfast. Usually, Grammie and Grampy would babysit after we ate so that the Jess, Brian, Mach and I could get in some exercise (tennis, hiking, etc…) while Elle napped.
Naps looked like this most of the time…
Some sort of beach/poolside sleep. We had our own “sleep sheep” with the waves from the ocean and the palms swaying in the breeze.
We had lunch late one day at the hotel and Elle decided she was tired. So, they let us pull up a lounge chair and she just slept there while we ate!
Right after her hat blew into the water!
We all got dressed up one night for dinner in an old sugar mill. It was fantastic! (although she looks less than enthused here!)
Mach feeding her at dinner in the Mill.
One of the days everyone went fishing while Grammie and I stayed back with Ellery. Here we are enjoying breakfast together
We went out for lunch one day to another hotel on the island and it got a bit warm…so we just stripped her down right there and let her hang out in her diaper and diaper cover!
She was pretty psyched about it!
Sunset walk to dinner at Sunshines
A few photos from our hike!
The view from the lobby of the hotel. We LOVED the Four Seasons Nevis. Cannot wait to go back!
We had such an amazing vacation together (the whole fam) but especially Elle Belle…I can’t wait to tell her all about this trip and how much fun she had when she gets older!
