Random Spring frost advisories this week after a hot and humid weekend have me checking Groupon for family friendly island resorts. Insert practicality. So instead, I’m looking for swimsuits for the girls. Some of Peyton’s from last summer still fit (win!), but Lo can’t wear any of P’s baby swimsuits. Peyton was barely fitting into 0-3 suits, and Lo’s fab thighs can barely be contained by 6-12 month leggings. Get it girrrl. So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite suits and beach essentials that are in stores now!
The dolphin has yet to be located after the great storage room overhaul, but I have full confidence that we will get another season out of him. David bought it in Florida for Peyton last winter when we were on vacation. She burst into the cutest mini-tantrum, hugging him and saying she loved him when we told her we couldn’t take it on the plane home. I spent that morning sitting and laying on it to get ALL the air out, and then smooshing him into my carry-on. And OF COURSE I was chosen for one of those “random searches” after security. Nope, no weapons, just a giant deflated dolphin. I had to basically beg the officer not to take the dolphin out because I would have missed the flight trying to get it back in. Parent life.
We have a ton of Lacoste beach towels which are perfect for the pool, boat, and beach! They’re oversized and perfect for when you have a soggy kid who wants to cuddle.
Peyton will be rocking last year’s PopUpShop Tiger suit this year, as well as a few from J Crew last year (like this and this), and I snagged this Baby Gap suit from a few years back on Ebay for London!
