Sun Protection

Many of you know may know how obsessed I am about sunscreen and sun protection. Here is a cute little thing to make me think even more!

Now onto the beach! This week and last we have enjoyed a familiar family beach. Humarock Beach. Clearly, Elliott is far better about her sun protection than I am.

Update

Today I am giving blogging another shot. The problem is me and the camera have some disconnect going on, and pictures tell such a better tale then my words. But, for the sake of documentation, I will tell you what El is up to lately.

Today Elliott took a break from her household duties, sweeping, and played air guitar with the broom. ...which is funny since she hates when her father plays the guitar. Jeremy has concluded it is because when he does play the guitar she is not getting all his attention. Even if he changes every verse of "coming round the mountain" to include horses for her enjoyment. I also have a memory of her and papa playing air guitar with a bat...

Today we also took her to a "lifestyle center" an outside mall, if you will, so we could hit up Whole Foods for one of her favorite snacks. Freeze dried corn. She loves it. You should try it. We brought her baby and stroller, which she pushed up and down the sidewalks much to many shoppers delight. I mean, how cute it is that?

Elliott loves her baby "julia" when she can't find her she walks though the house saying "julia where are yooooou?" Elliott will rock, burp, nurse, wrap and sing with Julia. Sometimes she will drop Julia intentionally (over and over again) and want me to pick her up and comfort the doll. So help me, pray we don't lose this thing.

Lately, we have been hearing Elliott say "self". Which is telling us she wants to do something herself. I have been introducing the word "team work" so I can actually her shoes on and out the door in a reasonable time. Now she can say both.

This week we have gone to Humarock beach a lot. Elliot rocks her full body 50 spf sun suit and we love not having to apply too much sunblock. She is having a great time dipping the rocks in her pail filled with salt water and sucking on them. Isn't that what the beach is all about?

Some other funny things:

"carry you" means carry me.

She only tells you that she has pooped when she has not.

"Rewon" means "another one".

Baloney, Jeremy (both refer to her father, don't ask :)

She hugs us close to avoid a diaper change cuz she knows we love it.

She hated, now loves slides. A drastic, overnight, change.

Panpakes = pancakes. "Dip" is maple syrup which is only for special occasions.

So, there you go. I will try to pick up some blogging steam for you all to enjoy.
