Sophie sees the ocean

This past weekend we went to my friend's mother's house on the Eastern shore of Maryland. She lives outside of Ocean City. It was Sophia's first trip to the beach and ocean. Although it was a bit chilly and windy on Saturday I think she enjoyed the fresh salty air, the roar of the waves and some attention from "YaYa" (Becca's mom). We didn't have enough time but I'm already thinking about the next time we can get away. Assateague Island is such a great place. The wild horses just kind of mill about. It was amazing to watch people pet and feed the horses. Some people just do not understand the the horses are wild, will buck, bite, and fight. They are WILD. They got into a few picnics and people would just go right up and take their bags back from right under the horses feet as if it were a small harmless dog. Anyways, the island has beautiful beach, places to camp, walking trail, fishing, kayaking and much more. We are definitely going to have to visit there again. So below are some photos of our weekend trip.

Little Miss Sophie

So I never got around to posting the rest of the vacation photos and review of our week. Now it seems so far past I'm moving on. I do however need to post the pictures of her donning her first swim suit. It was a gift from my dear friend Robi's parents. I looked for suits for her but didn't find any I liked and decided that if she needed a suit I would rebel and just take her into the pool in a diaper...then we received this gem. So adorable. I'm just disappointed she only had the opportunity to where it once and it certainly won't fit next summer. Adorable none the less.

Sophia is 20 weeks old today. Each day I notice a few things that she hasn't been able to do the day before. Last week she realized that she has control over her hands and she can manipulate objects. She became aware that when she stretches out her hands she can make the hanging things on her car seat move and make noise. She actively reaches for things (like my glasses and hair). She is learning to roll over and is about 3/4 of the way there. She just hasn't made the connection that if she pushes just a bit more she can get to her tummy or her back. But it is fun to watch her try.

Phillip and I feel really lucky that Sophia is such a happy baby. She really only fusses when she is hungry. She loves to laugh and smile.

Sophia has enjoyed game day too!

Such a cute family I have!
