It's very hard for me to comprehend that my baby is no longer a baby. She is approaching toddler hood faster than the blink of an eye. I cherish every crawling moment, every gummy smile and every little babble because I don't know when it may be the last... she could take her first steps, cut a first tooth or say her first word any day now! While it totally breaks my heart to realize that my baby is growing up, I am also aching with anticipation for what's to come.
Lea had so much fun this past weekend with her very first trip to the beach. The first day there, she wasn't sure what to think... the sand felt weird and the water was loud. By the second day, the sand was pretty cool but the water was still kinda scary. But by the third day, the sand was so fun to throw around and the water was fun to splash in! Besides the awesome crab dinners we had each night, my very favorite moment was watching Lea early Sunday morning as she chased a seagull down the beach. I kid you not... my 10 month old daughter literally chased a seagull down the beach... far away... not looking back once to see where mommy and daddy were!
