Alison just woke up from the hour long car ride.
That night was pretty rough. Alison did not want to go to sleep. There was too much to look at but she was so tired that all she could do was cry. It took about three and a half hours to get her to fall asleep. When she did fall asleep it was in the car in her tilted back car seat that I had lined with blankets. I was too afraid of waking her up so I just slept out in the car with her. It wasn't the most comfortable night I've ever had but it was still nice sleeping to the sound of the ocean waves. Alison only woke up once after she fell asleep and after I fed her she fell quickly back to sleep and we didn't wake up for the day until 7am.
Here are some pictures of Alison and mommy at the beach:
She was more interested in her toes then in anything else.
In honor of Alison's first day at the beach she wore her 'ocean outfit'
Alison taking a nice relaxing nap on the beach. She is under a low tent that was set up just for her and my friend Tawny's son to take naps under. We sure have gotten a lot of use out of her Moses basket!
Here Alison and I are enjoying the beach together. It was a beautiful day.
Alison and I went home around 5pm so we could go to Easter service the next day (Sunday morning). When we arrived home Alison was sleepy so I put her down for a nap and I took a bath to wash all the salt off and to let the warm water relax my sore I-slept-in-the-car-all-night muscles.
When Alison woke up we went to Target. I wanted to get Alison a sun hat and some baby sun screen. I was disappointed at the selection Target had. They only had three sun hats to choose from and none of them were small enough for Alison even though the tag said 'infant-toddler'. But I got her the hat anyways hoping she wouldn't mind that it covered her little eyes (she hated it).
I also got these munchkin diaper bags with the dispenser.
