For his valentines treat, we went to the beach. Not quite the right weather I hear you saying. As an august baby, by the time he was old enough that I would risk taking him near the sea and sand, it was already getting colder, so today was his first time feeling the sand and the sea breeze, his first time taking in the long stretch of sand and the endless sea. I think he was a little underwhelmed by the vastness, but the sand was definitely a hit!
He loved the feel of it in his fingers, watching it sprinkle from my hands, and didn't seem to put off by the taste. I can't say I wasn't warned when he next fills his nappy either. We stopped and watched the children playing on the beach, and took in boats in the harbour before the little man decided he had had enough new in his day and would resort to the old faithful thumb and nap.
Hopefully, a combination of fresh air, new experiences and a rather impressive amount of dinner means Mummy and Daddy get a nice peaceful valentines night.
