crawling and sand. not to be confused with crawling in the sand.

the mister, the little and myself relocated to the beach for a long weekend. this was the first time vegas' little toes touched the sand. there is just something about babies, beaches and uninterrupted time with my husband that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

we had some much needed family time, even if only for three days. we went to myrtle beach, sc. not the most glamorous of beaches, but cj has family that lives there and happens to own an ocean front condo, so it was pretty much a no brainer.

while we were there, vegas decided to become a normal baby and actually starting crawling like, for real. exactly 11 months old before she did it. she was so early on most of her other milestones, but this one... not so much.

she wasn't too fond of the sand at first, so there was no crawling on the beach, thank you baby jesus. she loved the ocean, just not too much of it at one time. it only took one mouthful of saltwater to initiate herself to the beach. she sunned with mom, peed on dad [hilarious] and rubbed sand in her eyes about 578 times, give or take.

she is going to be a golden goddess like her mom was as a kid. WHAT HAPPENED TO ME?! I AM SO WHITE! i guess i will be happy in a few years when i am hopefully not getting a melanoma removed from baking in the sun. but everyone knows that most people look a little better with a little color on them. boo, just boo.


  1. Love the pictures! I wouldn't worry, you're a beautiful (slightly less tan than some) mama! :-)

  2. great pictures!!! Vegas is adorable!

  3. I hear you on the 'white' thing. I used to spend a lot of time lounging on the beach. If I did go to the beach this year, only my back was tan because I spent my time hunched over chasing a toddler. blah.

  4. lounging in the sun/tanning goes out the window once a baby comes along. boo.
