First swim in the ocean: Photo Post

As I mentioned in the post about our birthdays, the morning after my birthday fun, we woke up and hurried off to the beach before the sun got too high and too hot.

This was officially Lexi’s first dip in the ocean and I was super excited to see how she’d react. She absolutely loved the water. There were smiles and giggles and lots of splashing.

There’ s really not much more to say, it’s all captured in the photos below.


Alexis was literally MEZMERIZED by the ocean. She was just staring and staring at it. To get a 6 months old to sit still for a picture is impossible and yet I was getting shot after shot of her just looking at the waves, laughing and babbling.


Oh and it was her first time playing in the sand with her Green Toys BPA-free, Phthalates-free sand bucket and rake that she kept trying to eat.

    What is Lexi sitting in at the reataraunt? We go out a lot, thankfully my LO is well behaved and loves to people watch. But he is outgrowing the infant car seat. I think he would love to sit at the table. Thanks!

    Hey! Are you right near The Moorings Beach in those pics? I was married on that beach at sunset almost 11 years ago πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing those beautiful photos. Really made my day and took me back in time. Makes me happy that you took Lexi for her first swim at one of my favorite places.
