Yesterday, Ryan and I rode our bikes to the beach and took a long beach walk. We’ve been able to get away for a little alone time almost every day since we’ve been here, which is so nice. My mom is really great about taking Lila—but why would she not want to spend time with this little lady?
Still, taking care of a baby is hard work, and we’re super-appreciative that my family has been so great about helping us out on this trip. It allows us to take in scenes like this:
…and have conversations that don’t revolve strictly around baby poop. Although, the conversations DO always seem to circle back around to Lila eventually.
Another fun thing we did yesterday?
We experimented with some temporary tattoos. Yes, that is a rose tattoo on our 3 month old. That is one bad ass baby. And a few people have commented that Sophie bears a striking resemblance to Iggy Pop:
We also made a delicious dinner:
Pasta with scallops, clams, and mussels. This was my first time actually cooking mussels at home—I love ordering them at restaurants, but have always shied away from cooking them myself. I’m not sure why—they’re SO easy! We just sauteed some onion and garlic, added the seafood and some seafood stock, wine, and butter, and let it cook until the shells opened—about 10 minutes. So easy, and super delicious.
Lila’s dinner wasn’t nearly as exciting:
So sweet. That girl loves her pop.
