We learned two very important things about Victor on this trip. The first thing we learned is that he doesn't sleep on vacation. Each traveling day was anywhere from 6 - 14 hours on the road. No matter the length or times of day that we were traveling, he never napped more than 1 hour. And this from my excellent sleeper who usually naps a total of 3 - 4 hours. However, he remained his usual happy self, no matter the hours awake. And then at night, we'd put him to bed, thinking that he'd fall asleep immediately and sleep for a longer than normal amount of time. Wrong again. He'd stand up, scream (happy screams), sit down, roll around, stand up, you get the picture. Being perpetually exhausted meant that at times he'd just conk out wherever he was or as soon as someone snuggled with him, only to jerk to attention within a short amount of time.
The second thing we learned about Mr. Victor during this trip is that he absolutely loves the water! This makes this beach lovin' Mama very happy. Ocean, pool, baby water play area, he doesn't care. He splashed and screamed to his heart's content and only stopped when picked up at which point he immediately put his head down and cuddled, exhausted.
