Our Trip to the Beach

We took our first trip to the beach as a family yesterday. Daniel loved it! He is definitely a beach boy. We went in the evening when it wasn't so hot and there weren't very many people out. It couldn't have been more ideal. Daniel liked to squish his feet in the sand, and he was fascinated by the water. The only time he was a little scared was when three fighter jets flew overhead, but that was a great opportunity for us to learn a new word: "jet." He worked on "beach," "ocean," and "sand" also. (No, he isn't really talking yet, but I'm sure he's thinking it!) Here are a few of our favorite pics:

I'm sure Daniel has all kinds of words that are expressing his surroundings.

Do you ever think that babies have a language of their own that is so sophisticated that it trancends the language barriers that we adults face? The babies can communicate with one another in mere passing by only a few choice syllables and tones that are indistinguishable to our untrained ears. Babies speak at decibles much louder than adult hearers can stand. Thus, babies are highly communicative. Do you think that in the aging process they are forced to give up their language as they assimilate into adulthood? Will, maybe you can embark on the rarely travelled road back to the baby language and share your learing?

-or not :)
