Yesterday afternoon instead of going to the park to meet up with Claudia and Sofia like we always do, Claudia suggested the beach since Sofia had never been yet.
What a great idea! Lily loves the beach and hadn’t been in a couple of days.
We met at 4:30p.m. and walked to the beach together.
Once we arrived at the beach, we pulled the strollers close to the water and let the girls out.
How exciting!!! Sofia’s first time.
She loved it right away. She had the biggest smile on her cute little face when first looking at the ocean.
The water was a big success also. Both Lily and Sofia dipped their feet in. It was at a great temperature. Not too cold, not too hot. The tide was almost all the way out and there were little waves rolling in.
They played in the water, they played on the blanket with the Winkel, it was a lovely afternoon.
YAY for Sofia’s first time at the beach and we hope we can have many more beach times together. 🙂
Despite the fact that my hair is still falling out like crazy, that my body is still not quiteÂ like it once was and that I only got up to go for my morning walk twice, I am feeling much more like myself and much better these days.
We went to the beach the past 2 weekends and let me tell you, it really helped. The sun, the beach air and the salt water do wonders.
It also helps that Lily has really taken to solid food so she sleeps longer during the day and during the night. I don’t feel as tired as I used to.
Last thursday night I got to go to dinner with my old co-workers and it feltÂ wonderful to be and feel like Claudia again. I left after giving Lily her dinner and a bit of breast feeding and it was all good!
I knew that what I was going through wasn’t going to last forever but, I’m sure glad that I acknowledged it, felt it, dealt with it and now it has vanished.
I know we’ve done a post on one of our favorite Zutano dresses and tights but, after Lily wore her little hat by Zutano to the beach yesterday, I realized how much we LOVE Zutano (we get ours from babysupermall.com).
Everything is made of super soft cotton, great colors and prints, easy fit and affordable. We LOVE it!
