When Nico woke up, we played on the floor. Xavi is working on his wrestling moves and Nico is scooting all over the place. I put him down to play while getting breakfast together or doing dishes only to come back and find that he has squirmied himself somewhere new.
We've been getting our vitamin D whenever possible and to optimize exposure you need to have sun on as much of your body as possible. Naked time!!! Woo hoo! I had to capture my beautiful baby and his magical smile on this bright and sunny morning. He lights up my world.
After nap, we drove down to San Clemente's North Beach where Xavi swang/swinged while looking at the ocean waves. We looked at birds, surfers, passing trains, and Nico nearby. We giggled and laughed. There are big sand "walls" that we jumped down and scaled back up. Xavi and I raced the waves while brother Nico rode in his carrier "pouch" on my chest. He snoozed and Xavi got wet (big surprise). Wet and sandy, I stripped him to his diaper and we ran around until it was time to go home for nap. One thing I always want to remember? Xavi wanted me to slide with him, so I climbed up with Nico asleep in the carrier, held Xavi in my lap as we zoomed down..."weeeeeee"! Again and again.
I love this face. He doesn't smile at the camera much anymore unless I hold it so he can see himself. That makes it harder to snap shots but I'm working on it...Diego got in on the family snuggle time but kept a close eye on Xavi.
