We went to the beach! A lot! I have a friend who is originally from Florida and she has taught me how to make going to the beach less of a hassle than I thought it would be. We had a blast! N really took to walking in the water and loves to feel the sand. On the second day she slept through half of our time there, but that was fine. It was still an amazingly relaxing day.
Monday was a "chill out" day for us. Our beach days wore us out, plus Mama had to do some serious laundry. We had some good outside time though. N is exploring more and more and getting more comfortable walking on the uneven grass. She cracked me up when she pushed the mower up our little hill and plopped down for a little break.
N said her first serious words! She repeated "Pop! Pop! Pop!" after I read it from a book. She also says "Mama" definitively. But the cutest thing is when she takes any object and holds it up to her ear, like a phone, and says "Hi" in this soft voice. I LOVE it!
