The trees in our neighborhood filled with purple flowers!
Before it was trees with yellow flowers, and now there are different trees blooming. These have flowers with a yellow center and purple petals. (Some of my favorite colors, purple and yellow.) The petals look like they are made out of tissue paper. LOVE them!
Here is Lily checking them out when we went for a walk this morning before the beach. Lily wears a romper by Zutano and hat by Patagonia.
More mornings at the beach like the one we had today with Claudia, Sofia, Zura and Lien. (Sherrie and McCoy you were missed)
All 3 girls had some diaper free bottom time, they were in the water (it was Lien’s first time, picture #2), they played (picture #4), they ate, they napped (Lien, picture #5), everyone got to get to know each other better (Zura and Lily, picture #6) and there was even time for some baby free mommy swimming time (Zura and Claudia, picture #7).
After not seeing Sofia and Claudia for 4 days, Lily was quite happy when we all met up again first in the morning to go to the library and then later at the park.
Quality time with our friends Claudia and Sofia? It’s a “Must”!
Here are Lily and Sofia playing at the library and at the park. Lily wears a top by Old Navy and pants by babyGap that were a gift from avo Hayes and aunt Sarah and at the park Lily wears top by Zutano and shorts by Old Navy.
With the heat already here and the summer around the corner, there are a few daily “Musts” we can’t leave the house without!
Sunblock. We use Banana Boat Tear Free SPF 50. Not like we have tried any others but this seems to work really well. It lasts, and it definitely is tear free since I have accidentally gotten it in Lily’s eye while applying it.
Sun hat. Lily has 2 that she uses. One from Old Navy and the other from Zutano. The one from Zutano has a bigger brim so it has better sun protection. We use that one more now. ( I had read in a review that the Zutano hats ran a little small so I ordered 6-12mths for Lily a while ago. I’m glad I did. She is going to be 6mths in 3 days and we will probably have to get her a bigger size soon.)
Swim Diaper. I looked at plenty of bathing suits for Lily but, there is nothing cuter than a naked baby at the beach so she doesn’t own one. We did get her a Kushies Swim Diaper and it is great! Kushies offer swim diapers in many different colors and cute prints. And they are washable! 🙂
Here is Lily wearing both her Kushies and her Zutano hat at the beach.
