Beach Baby

If you know me or Mark at all, you know we tend to be last minute planners. So, we were enjoying the beautiful weather on the front porch last week and decided we just couldn't let Spring Break pass us by without a trip to the beach. We packed up the car with what felt like everything we own and took Marin on her first trip to Destin. I must say she was an absolute angel the whole trip and never once complained about being stuck in the car. The weather was just gorgeous, and the ocean water was the prettiest we have seen it in years. We enjoyed some nice dinners out and strolled around Baytown Wharf and Seaside at night.

Marin loved the beach, and she was just so precious in all her beach attire. She really enjoyed sitting on the beach and watching the waves and the seagulls. She never messed with her sunglasses or hat either. The water was freezing, but I had to stick her fit in just for a moment, which she did not appreciate. I'm sure it won't be long before we're back at the beach, but Marin will be totally different. It was nice not having to chase her around anywhere. I'm enjoying her immobility right now when we can just sit her down somewhere and she's content right where we put her. Spring Break 2011 was the best!!! I treasured every second spent with my baby girl!

She loved feeling the sand, and of course putting
it in her mouth!

High Chair Fun

Last weekend we bought Marin a high chair hoping that would inspire her to eat solids a little better. She LOVES the high chair! She is having so much fun in it. She is still making a huge mess and not getting a ton of food actually swallowed, but that's OK. Her favorites right now are apples, sweet potatoes, and cereal. The other night I started laughing at what a mess she was making, and she looked right back at me and laughed because I was laughing. It was so cute. When she finishes her "meal" Mark takes her on a ride around the house in her high chair, which she thinks is the best! She goes flying around the dining room with a huge grin on her face!

We'll work on manners later!
