HI Hartley, too bad you can't see the pics.
Giulietta, your kids are beautiful!!!
We had a collegue of ours and his girlfriend and their 15month old baby on board for a day trip. Alex was our first baby on board and it did freak us out abit. BUT he's got to be the best baby on earth. He loved being on the boat and fell asleep as soon as we got out of the marina. Must be the rocking,.
We put a mattress on the floor and tuck him in. He slept for hours and never once fuss when he woke up.

Cheerio
Amy

The kid from hell doesn't look like that much trouble... that's the problem with little kids...they've got great camoflauge.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Great photo, Rick. I've used the portable playpens (aka pack-and-play) in the main cabin too. In my C-27 it fits perfectly between the setees. Bring some toys! And a portable DVD player makes a great babysitter.

Nah, industrial strength velcro and a fleece baby suit. No sticky residue left on the kid.

LOL... one time I was babysitting my nephew for my sister... and my gf at the time and I were drinking Snapple Iced Tea.... my nephew, wanted some...so we gave him some... about two bottles worth.... For some reason, my sister had a lot of trouble getting my nephew to bed.... and couldn't understand why he was so hyped up.... Needless to say, I didn't mention the iced tea to her...
