Today was a beach day.
My Cameron is finally walking and therefore the beach has suddenly become less of a hassle and way more fun! He’s not constantly trying to eat sand or rocks and he loves exploring the terrain!
We met up with a couple friends who also have young kids. The kids poked around in the sand while we lounged in our chairs. It takes a lot of planning and packing (and then unpacking) to get to and from the beach, so the prize is that small stretch of time of just sitting in a chair.
In the past week or so Cam has hit another turning point in his development. My favorite new trick is that if I say, “Cam, can I have a kiss?” he will lean in and give me a quick one on the lips. Sometimes it’s short ‘n sweet and other times he comes at me open-mouthed and I have to dart his slimy affections. I can’t even begin to explain how much this occurance melts my momma-heart.
Tomorrow I am heading back to the beach with Cam and Marcus, the three year old I watch. Since I went to all the trouble of packing up our beach gear today, I figured I might as well get a double use out of it before I have to wash the towels and put everything back in the closet.
If I ever move away from easy beach-access I think a little piece of my heart will die.
