After one morning of trying to use my phone to take pictures at the beach, I got a waterproof disposable one. It was so windy, the lens was quickly covered in salt and sand, so the pictures look a little blurry. But, thats better than having my phone destroyed from salt spray!
hanging out on the porch swing underneath the house. There is also a hammock, and a dock onto the canal, from which Patrick went crabbing. He caught some that we had for supper :-).
the condo is one block from the beach, so we just carried the chairs and toys out there, it is very convenient, and not too many people.
Caroline was not afraid of the waves at all. I would prefer her to be a little more scared, because she didnt want to hold anybody's hand! When whichever adult who happened to be trying to wrangle her at the time lost their grip on her arm, she would just go right under, then pop back up and sputter a little. But it didnt seem to bother her.
Charlie, our cautious one, really enjoyed splashing in the shallow water, jumping in waves with me, and collecting snails.
Yes, here it is: the requisite potty picture. But i promise, this is the last of this kind of thing from the Crisp family. We have no more babies. She is definitely not potty trained, but she constantly takes her diaper off and runs around half naked, so i thought we should start soon. As I am tired of cleaning up her messes!
My baby also just learned how to climb out of her crib, and had so much fun doing it, it took 3 hours to get her to bed. Seeing as how she will be 2 in a few weeks, I had to acknowledge it was time for her to get out of the crib. We had a fruitful morning garage saleing , and got this bed for her. I dont really want any more babies, but it does make me kind of sad!
Since the day that crib came in the mail 6 years ago, Patrick has put it together and taken it apart countless times! I remember having it all set to go, in Hannah's nursery in Longview TX, before she was born. The anticipation. The crib hasn't hardly gone empty one night in 6 years, when one grew out of it, the next one went in. I dont know whether to grieve the loss of that season of my life, or be glad I am getting more sleep these days. Both?
