When we were able to drag the kids away from the beach, we managed to do some sightseeing around Charleston as well. We all knew that it would be difficult to have planned activities each day with six kids of all different ages, so we really just picked three main things that we wanted to do away from the beach.
Okay. If you follow me on Instagram, or have seen any of my Instagram stories, you know that I live at either the beach or the splash pad. We are there at least a couple of times a week, and I’ve pretty much got the whole beach-with-toddlers-thing down to a science.
The more we go, the more I perfect my packing list for the already heavy bag that I am going to have to carry along with my two girls. So, as we prepare for summer, and for two week-long beach vacations we have planned, I have picked up a few new favorite things to make those beach days a little easier.
In one week Anniston will be turning one. And as I reflect on this past year, I can’t help but think about how it all started. My husband and I, parents to a thirteen-month-old, about to have a newborn, so excited to give Juliet a little sister, but knowing that it was going to be difficult, exhausting, and totally worth it.
Last Sunday we celebrated my sister, and the baby girl she is going to have in the next few weeks. As one of four girls, with two girls of my own, I could not be more excited to welcome another a little girl into the family. I honestly don’t know what we all would do if one of us had a boy. Girls are our thing.
Have you seen Juliet’s hair?
She’s two years old and already has better hair than I do.
Up until recently, I was still using an all-in-one shampoo and conditioner on her and her sister during bath time. But with as much hair as she has, it is really fine and tangles easily, so I decided it was time for an upgrade. I came across a line of baby products by Beautycounter that I just had to try.
