Beach Boys

Charlie & Digby came to visit on Sunday at my place in Mona Vale, and after a lovely BBQ picnic in the park, we took them to the beach for their very first time.

I was holding Charlie’s hand as we walked onto the sand and the water came into view. His eyes nearly popped out of his head and he just said aaaaaaawwwww.

It’s so amazing to witness a child discover something for the first time. They’re so full of curiosity, wonder and pure awe.

Digby got a huge fright early on when a wave came up and splashed him, and he spent most of the time perched safely up in Mum’s arms.

Charlie sussed it out, and ultimately decided it was ok. PS they guy in the background with the video camera isn’t some random creep; it’s just The Fisherman :)

I’m actually quite surprised Charlie didn’t try to just dive in! He would have his arms forward and back and I’m sure there was a part of him that thought he was making the waves himself…magic!

    Stop making me want babies. I can’t afford the extra $350/month for maternity insurance right now. Those dirty little chubby cheeks are soooo adorable. These photos make my ovaries happy.
