A couple of weeks ago was Duncan’s spring break. To say we love when he gets a break is an understatement, and it is even better when we get to go on a vacation! Duncan and I both love going to the beach and could literally sit out on the beach all day, from sun-up to sun-down (I read while he fishes).
This was Lively’s first time at the beach, so we were curious what it would be like with a baby and how things would be different; come to find out, Lively also LOVED the beach! Watching her feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves for the first time melted this momma’s heart!
Our daily routine was pretty much get up, eat breakfast, and put sunscreen on, then hurry out to the beach! Our daily must-haves included a big umbrella (Lively laid under it basically all day; the shade, warm breeze, and sound of the ocean put her right to sleep and helped her nap better than ever). We also brought out a big blanket to lay under the umbrella, my nursing pillow, my feeding cover, Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sensitive Lotion, a sunhat for Lively, and lots of water (because I always feel parched when I feed Lively, haha).
In the evenings, it was so fun walking Lively along the beach! My WildBird carrier was perfect, because Lively is comfortable, she can look out and see, and she can easily fall asleep in it. It was so special watching Lively enjoy the beach… we love our little beach babe! We can’t wait for many more trips with her and memory-making adventures!
Always and forever,
