Royce's First Year

I can't believe my baby is ONE! Where has this year gone??? Before he was was born I couldn't wait to meet him and now I want to hold onto him as a little baby for as long as I can and wishing he'd stop growing so fast. I really loved the first year. Right now, he's really clingy and always wanting to be carried and I tell him to start walking already! But in my mind, I know I'm going to miss him wanting to be so close. Next he's gonna start walking and running away from me. *sniff sniff* Soon, I am gonna have a toddler!!! Waaaaahhhh!!! It's exciting to see what he's becoming more and more each day but I wish he would just stay my baby forever. *cue in Cher's "If I can turn back time"**

Baby Powder = Sand Remover

This past Sunday was Royce's first time on the beach. Janine's fabulous friends played volleyball while Evan Royce and I "relaxed" under the umbrella. I stressed out about Royce playing in the sand and watching his hands like a hawk to make sure they don't go near his mouth. It was cloudy when we got there. We only stayed for about two hours because we had Sophia's baptism to attend.

He's so into it!

New Discovery
He had so much fun! He loved playing in the sand so much, he put some on his head. Did you know that  baby powder is a great sand remover for sandy hands and feet? Thankfully Emily brought baby powder and taught me this. Such a lifesaver! Just sprinkle baby powder on any sandy areas and rub them in, this will remove all excess sand from your body. It's a must have in my beach bag from now on.
Word of caution: Try not to breathe in the baby powder when sprinkling into your body or your little ones. Use sparingly.

I wanted to commend Paulette, my dear oldest friend for putting a spectacular 3rd Birthday Little Mermaid Celebration for her daughter, Madie last Saturday. It was located in the most amazing water park in the city of Stanton. It had a pirate ship playground, wall climbing for little children or little people (it was literally about my height so I couldnt even climb it..believe me I tried!), padded mats for the kids to play and a water park!!! We didn't have anything like that growing up. My inner child is soo jealous...(it's ok cuz we will just have to live vicariously through Royce...Mwahahaha!)
