Finding ourselves on the beach

On Saturday we headed to the beach, we needed to get outside and soak up the sun.  Mr Hubby had been away in France and needless to say, we had missed him a lot.

We really enjoyed West Wittering the first time we took Baby there, so it got our vote again.  I love the pretty beach huts and the beach itself is lovely and sandy.  Even though it was busy, we had no problem finding a spot.

Baby has been a bit unsettled recently.  I’m not sure if it is because we have been separated as a family a fair bit recently or teething pain.  Whatever the reason, she decided she didn’t want to let go of her Aunty Jen.  This left Mr Hubby and I on the beach, while she played in the sea with J.

Baby spotted a little boy’s yellow bucket and we thought her face was classic, as she noticed it and then took off to try and steal it.

Sitting there, basking in the sun for those precious 10 minutes was bliss.  We could see our happy baby playing, but for those few minutes it was just us.  Mr Hubby sitting behind me, holding me up and supporting me, as he always does.  My rock, my support.  Sitting with the sun on our faces, reconnecting, remembering that there was an ‘us‘ before we were a family.  It is easy day to day to just be a family, see to her needs and wants, after all she is the most important thing in both of our lives.  However, we need to remember to make sure our needs are cared for and nurtured, as much as we do hers.   Mummy and Daddy matter too.

    Yes, being a family is wonderful, but it’s nice to have a little space sometimes too-auntie’s are very handy for this I find :-)

      I wish she loved closer! We have no local family so it is all down to us, which is fine but occasionally it would be nice to have someone to help for 5 minutes x

    How lovely to be able to spend a little amount of time with your husband. I think we’ve forgotten what that is like!

    What a precious little one. I adore that outfit–so fitting for such a perfect day at the beach! What a wonderful sentiment for you and your husband as well. Something that most married couples often forget (including myself). Thanks for the reminder!

    Ah this is such a lovely post Aby and gorgeous photos of Baby. I agree it is so important to make time as a family but then it is also important to remember that the two of you are important too. We spent some lovely quality time just the two of us in the evenings once the girls were in bed on holiday and I didn’t realise just how much I missed it- quality time without laptops, phones or the TV! x

    I love her expressions in these pics, adorable! And am with you on it being nice to have some couple time, whether it’s a whole night like we managed this weekend, or just a few minutes like you found on the beach – children are all consuming and wonderful, but our relationships are important too!

    Oh, those ‘us’ moments are so few and far between they stand out like a beacon when they occur. To think that we took time with one another so for granted before… Nothing like children to totally change your normal.

    I totally agree that you have to remember and make time for you as a couple. Hubby and I spent a lovely evening just talking the other night. It had been ages since we chatted about something other than jobs that needed doing and bills that needed paying. We used to take time every evening with each other, just chatting and I’ve really missed it.
