Sunday, 4 August 2013; One Hundred and Twenty-Five Days Old.
There were two highlights of today; the first was seeing how amazed Ayla was with waves, and the second was hanging out in the back seat of the car with her on the way home.
When we got up this morning the boys had already taken the boat and gone fishing so Ayla and I snuck out for a walk along the beach.
Despite the morning sun a strong wind made it almost cold and I held Ayla close to keep her warm and stop her from getting the hiccups by sucking in air.
When we got to the shoreline Ayla saw waves for the first time! Not surf, but gentle waves lapping at the sand.
Her eyes locked and she was mesmerised, trying to work out what the foamy white line was and where it went.
Then on the way home, we girls crammed in the back of our dual cab and I sat beside Ayla in her car seat.
For most of the trip Ayla just stared and smiled at me, thinking it was pretty cool she wasn’t stuck back there by herself for once.
Eventually though she started to get tired and began to “talk” before grabbing my hand and jamming my finger in her mouth.
Ayla then proceeded to chew on my index finger with all of her might for nearly twenty minutes until we were both covered in drool.
The things we do for our kids huh?! 🙂
