“Instead of having Reagan’s party the weekend of his Birthday I planned to have it the weekend before so I could spend his actually birthday in a more intimate and personal setting. I have always found the beach to be an inspiring and calming place.I knew that was just where I wanted to spend this special day with my son.
We stayed in a tiny condo overlooking Nye Beach in Newport, Or. The views were spectacular and the smell of the ocean air was crisp and inviting. While in Newport we spent a lot of time walking the beach. It gave me a chance as a mother to clear my head and reflect on the amazing year we had been through together. The ups and the downs. The many tears and giggles shared.
My little guy had the time of his life. He would screech as each wave came and lapped up again his tiny legs. He could not get enough of the frigid ocean water. I had to pry him away from the ocean so the waves wouldn’t knock him over! I
think am POSITIVE he ate his fair share of sand during our stay. I was finding it for days in the crevices of his baby rolls. We all decided he is destined to enjoy surfing when he is old enough. “
