Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Something wrong with our heater and they couldn't fix it until the parts that they need arrive here from lower 48. It's been two nights no heat and hot water. Hopefully it'll get fix today. I'm glad we're not in any below zero temperature outside anymore. Keeping Alan warm.

14 years of marriage and we just have a 7 month old handsome baby boy. Such a wonderful blessing.

Handsome Alan

Oh yes he is! I'm having a headache right now :(

Goofy Alan

He always does something that make me bust up laughing

Fingers in the Mouth

Alan doesn't like to use pacifier and he didn't really learn to suck his thumb but he likes to put his fingers and sometimes his whole fist into his mouth.

Entertaining Alan

Oh yeah! He can entertain me as long as I pay attention to him. He is a happy baby.

Hah! That's ABCD in one post. Alan woke up around 3am and finally had a bowel movement. Thank goodness! I was late to work today though because my husband wasn't aware and went to work with my truck keys in his coat pocket. All went well though. I was only late for 10 minutes.

Yep I'm enjoying this A to Z challenge with my baby Alan theme. Guess what would be my D tomorrow? We went on a little road trip to North Pole today. I picked up the portable breast pump I bought from there. I want to keep producing milk for Alan until at least he's one year old. This battery operated pump should do the work while I'm at work. I only get half an hour lunch at work so I have to divide that between eating and pumping.

And B is also back to work. I'm glad that my baby and I are doing good with the transition of me working and leaving him all day. He had learned to use his bottle and he is taking solid food now. The only thing I'm worried is that he hasn't had any bowel movement for a week now. I know he had gone 2 weeks before without any poop but that was because he's exclusively taking breastmilk. But now he is taking solid food and no poop for a week. I'm a bit worried.
