Kick kick!


Sunday, 6 October 2013: One Hundred and Eighty Six Days Old.

We bought Baby Ayla a swim ring and its one of the best things we’ve bought so far!

Although Ayla still prefers to float in our arms and splash water everywhere, the swim ring is teaching her to kick.

Ayla’s only been in it a couple of times bur she’s already learning to propel herself through the water by kicking.

Won’t be long before we can tie a lure to the back of it and send her out into the ocean.


Here’s a quick video of her practicing;

My darling Baby Ayla has a freckle!

I love Ayla’s porcelain skin and was happy to think she’d keep her beautiful pale and pure complexion forever.

But now, since finding the freckle on her upper arm, I think she’ll be like me… Pale, pasty and freckly.

Don’t get me wrong, a couple of freckles across the nose is pretty cute, but the sunburn, the peeling and the identification of more freckles is kind of a bummer.

Hubby is beautifully brown, he tans in minutes and is “low risk” in the skin cancer department. And I’m exactly the opposite.

But on the upside I’m more experienced than the average person when it comes to keeping the rays and bay so hopefully I can keep Ayla sun proofed… At least til she’s 16.
