Toddler at the Beach

The summer is now in full bloom and the water is finally starting to warm up here in New York. Nicky and I have been hitting the beach several times a week and after somewhat of a rough start, he is really starting to love it! It took some time getting used to the ocean because it is big, it is cold and it is very different from the warm cozy bathtub he is used to splashing in. We took it slow, at first just wetting out feet while playing soccer, then dipping our legs while being held by mommy, then jumping in together and, finally, running in full speed and plopping down into the water! I am so excited that Nicky is enjoying himself and am looking forward to teaching him how to swim soon!
