i wish that i could say that our trip to san diego was a fantastic one, but unfortunately, holden was fussy the entire time we were down there.  i'm not sure if he had a stomach ache, if he is teething, if he has an ear infection, or if there is something else going on, but our trip seemed long and frustrating, the whole time leaving me longing for the comfort of my own home, tearful over the pain of my little one and missing the happy baby boy i know so well.  our family loves aquariums so going to birch aquarium in la jolla was a nice distraction for all of us, providing a little reprieve and relief from the incessant fussing that we all were suffering.
