Babies and the beach

I know, I know! It's been a while!! I had this master plan to write a blog once a week. Having a baby around doesn't always allow this...
So here are the pictures from our vacation to Myrtle Beach!!
The first day, I had to put baby in her adorable swimsuit!! Yeah.. that only happened once or twice!! Naked babies are easier to care for!!
Thank goodness there was a glider in our condo!! We spent a lot of time in this chair!
Now here is some adventure!! First time in a pool! As you can see, she wasn't too sure of it!

Dippin her feet in the water to get her used to it. It was kinda cold..
Diaper off and ready to go under!!
I felt so bad after doing this! But every baby has to go through it! It wouldn't have been right not to on her first trip to the beach!

She hated it...
She was trying to catch her breath...
so she could cry again!

My favorite picture. She is just so sweet!
After dipping her, she didn't really care for the pool.

Our beautiful beach
I had too! It got old having to go up to the condo every 2 hours to feed her!!

My two loves!
She found her feet on vacation. She never lets them go! It's amazing how easily babies can get them in their mouths!
I love when she just chills on my lap and watches tv with me! Yes, we were watching cartoons!

My sweet baby! She's getting too big to walk away from her when she's on the couch...we found that out down there...

She loves her papa
If you can't tell, she's screaming here. She does when she is super happy!!
So mom and dad found a stroller at a second hand shop down there! It saved us big time! She loved being in it! We would go for walks on the beach and she would fall asleep almost instantly!

Pictures with our baby!
She didn't really understand what we were doing!

Trying the pool thing again
No go...

So grammy opened up a new, bad habit to is now in love with chewing on the bottom of cold glasses!! She loves it!
Last day on the beach! We decided to start a tradition. Nathan used to buy a Starbucks frappuccino and fill it with sand. So we did it for baby and will every year for now on!
Favorite picture!
Bye Bye Beach!!

New addition to the family...the soggy bib!

Well, life has been wonderful lately! Baby is starting to do things that 'babies' do! She is no longer a 'newborn'! I am both happy and sad about this. It's so cool to see her grow up and discover different objects around her or ON her! But at the same time, I miss that little baby that would fall asleep on you without putting up a fight! We are still so blessed and love to be able to share her growing up with all our friends and family through this blog!

So! Nathan and I just purchased new phones (buy one get one free!!!) and the camera on it is great! So I've been taking pictures like crazy the past couple days! So here they are!!

She's starting to sit up by herself!

Not sure if she is teething yet but it kind of seems like it. She loved this teether thing! When I would take it away, she would wiggle like crazy till I gave it back to her!

This picture was pre-bath! That's why she's looking kinda rough but cute!

And drooling like crazy!

Daddy and baby!

Notice the bib! We can't leave the house without one or a change of clothes!

Anything that comes near her mouth! Just too cute!

First time in a while that daddy gave her a bath! She loved it!

Since her hair has been growing, it's getting more curls! So, after her bath, we didn't brush her hair and this is how it turned out!

At the Bilik's for dinner. Miss Molly was so proud to be able to hold baby!

We were at group and cleaning the activity center. Laura always puts her baby in her thing like this so I thought it would be nice for my baby to ride around in one too! She ended up falling asleep by the time we were done!

Today was a warm enough day to finally wear this outfit! But I'm pretty sure at this point, she had poop though her outfit and this was this morning at 8am!...happens too often!

She's going through this phase of screaming on the top of her lungs! It's extremely high pitch! It's so stinkin cute!
