Isla’s First Trip to the Beach

I couldn’t resist sharing a few of these with you! We took the opportunity to head down to Omaha Beach while visiting some friends in France. It was Isla’s first time on the beach and it was such a beautiful thing to witness.

Both Nanny & I forgot the towels so we were just going to let Isla have a little paddle and go. Isla had other ideas. She instantly fell in love & wanted to go for a swim!

We played in the shallow waves for as long as I could convince her to stay, but she kept trying to make a break for deeper waters!

Isla would have stayed all day if we had let her, but without a sunshade or towels we had to cut the visit short!

Eventually we gave in and stripped off her jeans to go for a deeper paddle before giving in completely and putting her in her totsbots swim nappy & swimsuit!

The difference a filter makes… Haha! It actually looked like the final picture but I couldn’t resist a moodier edit on the shots from my camera!

I can’t wait till next time & I’ve promised Isla that we will come prepared for a whole day of splashing & sandcastles!

 

And… She’s off!

Isla has been thinking about crawling for a few weeks now… mostly going backwards into the corner of the room until she gets stuck! But this morning she finally figured out that her hands actually need to move too!

I was bursting with pride watching her put it all together! But now we are in trouble & need to do some serious speedy baby proofing! 🙂
