We have taken Sophia to Range Pond a few times now, and finally she has decided that the water is not such a bad thing. The very first time she screamed bloody murder . . . but most recently the water was nice and warm and she decided going in with mama was fun!
Thanks to Helene she has a cute little pink bathing suit, complete with a decorative heart on the front of it. The suit fits her pretty well, but is just a little bit baggy, especially on the bum, which only makes it even cuter!
"Hmm, this is pretty cute, but I wonder what it tastes like?"
So at last we have a happy baby at the beach, not a screaming-don't-put-my-toes-in-the-water baby. I don't love her more or less according to her willingness to get wet, but going to the beach is so much more fun with the water as part of the equation!
