Well, yesterday we DID make it to the beach. What a difference a week makes! This time last week it was in the 40s and raining!
I found this outfit that Morgan's sister sent over in Caitlin's closet...swimwear and a protective hat. We had no intention of swimming yet, but it provided good sun coverage...and cute pictures!
We went for naptime, so Daddy and Caitlin both caught up on their zzzzz's. We'd planned to take a walk, but we were all happy enough to just crash out and enjoy the scenery. It has been about three weeks since our first trip to the beach and we could not get over how much bigger Caitlin is now in the Baby Bjourn. She is growing so fast!
When we got there we noticed a large crowd at the water's edge. It turns out there was a large sea turtle on the beach. The turtle swam off and the crowd dispersed, but it was pretty neat to see! I wasn't quite quick enough with the camera though so you will just have to take my word for it.
It was a beautiful day! This is by far my favorite time of the year for the beach. We brought our beach umbrella today, but I am going to look for a small pop up shade-thing. I saw one at one of the baby stores but it was rather pricey so I'm working on less expensive alternatives. The beach is the perfect spot for an afternoon nap.
We took almost 100 pictures today. Thank goodness for digital cameras! Caitlin was an angel all day. She is a very easy-going baby anyway...but today was something else. (She even burped for the Irishman on cue...that NEVER happens! Burping is not his thing.) She has also found her "voice" and been "talking" to us all weekend. Too cute! We love our baby girl!
