Stinky goes to Cuba: Part 1

"this shirt is daddy mojito proof"
We leave for Cayo Coco tomorrow.

travelling with a 9 month old is sooooooooooooooooooo much more difficult than travelling with a 3 month old.  --- and I haven't even left yet --- that sentence should actually read "packing for a 9 month old is soooooooooooooooooo much more difficult than.... blah, blah, blah.." get the point.
I made a list :
swimmers & swimsuit
FORMULA  (pain in the butt -- I got all ready-to-use formula just in case we have any water issues)
FOOD (another pain in the you know what -- cans, upon cans of baby food)
Afterbite for infants
diapers (arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! yes, another pain!)
mosquito net
disposable liners for Playtex 'drop ins' bottles... got 'em free at the babyshow... they are pre-sterilized. genius.
baby suppositories (just in case!)
Anbesol baby

I'm sure there are numerous things in my suitcase that are not on this list... but heck.. .the point is:
I went from packing bikinis, sexy clothes and make-up ---> to packing diapers and formula?!?!?!?! 

Anyhow. Seba and I are packed. Almost... 
We leave tomorrow morning.  I am not cool and/or popular enough to have a 'guest blogger' -- so we'll just be gone for a week... yup, no stinky for one week. 
I wonder if I'll go into bloggers' withdrawal?  Will I actually finish reading my novel?  Will I actually shower everyday? These and other trivial questions will be answered upon our return.

In other news, today was Sebastian's 9 month check-up! He's 28.5 inches long and 17lbs, 10oz.  Yes, he's skinny.  The boy has chubby cheeks, a belly, thick ankles and thighs... and no fat anywhere else.  He's like a mini Humpty Dumpty... without teeth.  Did Humpty even have teeth?!
Doesn't matter.
Here is the nine-month-old-toothless-humpty-dumpty-of-stinkiness, skinny legs and all :
(excuse the blurriness... stinky was moving faster than the speed of light today)


One thing that made me happy while packing:
Stinky's summer clothes have been reborn! Everything that was fitting big during the summer fits him perfectly now =)
