We recently took the kids to
Madelynn is a TOTAL daddy's girl when she is not tired or wanting to nurse. From the moment she wakes up she is constantly yelling for 'daddy' and searching for him. When he arrives home from work each day she runs to the door, throws her arms around his neck, then climbs onto his back for pigy back rides...THIS is the look on her face that I see every time she looks at her daddy, which she happened to be doing in this picture as well
She is beautiful,
While we were at the beach, Madelynn had a chance to play with sand, a new experience for her. Joshua is terrified of sand touching him so it isn’t something that we have had much contact with. Madelynn, however, loved it and covered herself in it on more than one occasion while at the beach J She loved attempting to make sand castles and playing with it.
…its pretty cute isn’t it? She did NOT like the sand on her hands at this moment.
And no beach trip would be complete without some swimming! Madelynn loved running through the water, throwing herself into the water, attempting to lay down in the water, but even more she enjoyed swimming with daddy. Here he was teaching her how to float.
She was unsure at first but quickly warmed up to the idea and spent a bunch of time on her back when she had her life jacket on.
And no beach trip can end without a trip to the showers J Madelynn LOVED the showers, and during the last safety break she would not leave them. She enjoyed the ICE cold water being sprayed on her. She enjoyed the splashing, the stomping, the giggles and the cuteness that came from her. And honestly, I loved it too!!
