Photo Friday: First Sand

Eilan's little baby feet in the sand for the first time ever
Eilan's little baby feet in the sand for the first time ever

We took a quick trip down to San Francisco a few weeks ago and found ourselves in the middle of some unseasonably warm weather. Instead of visiting all the museums, we spent our days outdoors in Golden Gate Park.

D, who used to make "snow angels" in the sand when she was 10 months old thought it was the perfect opportunity to stick Eilan's feet in the sand for the first time. Poor little guy, he looked up at me as if to say "normal ground doesn't feel this way" and started crying. His big sister has a lot to teach him.

    Can you tell the character of a child by his reaction to sand in his toes? Perhaps he's going to be a child who likes to wash behind his ears and never gets his clothes dirty?

    We were the sameway. I have one kid who loved sand at first touch and another who wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. Luckily,now they are both sand lovers because Mommy loves the beach!

    Sand has such a diverse feeling, cool, soft but a little gritty like acupressure. Such cute feet!

    Without even seeing a facial expression, you know it is Yuk!

    I love little feet pictures. I wish I took at least 1000 more of them when my girls were little. (these days I feel lucky if I get a picture of their backs :)

    @Heather it reminded me of the first time E had a helium balloon. Every time it floated up when he let go, he cried. Stuff just isn't supposed to go up when you drop it. E still really likes things to behave the way he things they are supposed to ;)
