It’s summer and the waves are calling! Taking your little ones to the beach will always be some of your family’s most beautiful and treasured memories—their first time touching the ocean; their first sand castle; their giddy squeals as the waves chase them to-&-fro and roll onto their toes; their delight at finding and collecting sea-shells; their curiosity at finding a washed-up jelly fish; their determination for digging a hole in the sand straight to China; their little sandy feet running down the beach with a kite; their excited impatience as you blow up their inner tube; their giggles & gripes while rubbing sunscreen into their jelly-roll arms and legs; their laughter as they enjoy one of their first games with a beach ball or Frisbee; their smiles as they write their name in the wet sand for the very first time…
The memories that can be created at the beach are endless. Be sure to capture them and hold on to them forever in your BabyPage book. Create your account for free today and start creating your Summer 2016 baby book!
You know you’ll be snapping that camera, so have that little one dressed up! The beach is such a perfect backdrop for photographs, so you can get creative & even cheesy with their outfits. Anything in miniature is instantly more adorable. But few things are as adorable as mini-humans in mini-swimsuits!
We compiled some of our favorite beach costumes, outfits and swimsuit trends for your beach baby this season:
Your Little Mermaid: Little girls have always been drawn to the lure of mermaids. Disney’s Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid’ from the 1980s is amazingly still a popular character in toy and clothing sections. It seems there are even more fun mermaid outfits now than ever!
Your Beach Bum Baby Boy: Little girls aren’t the only one getting special attention in beach-themed clothing. Here are some adorable outfits & swim trunks for your little “grom” (amateur surfer).
Itty-Bitty Yellow Polka Dot Bikini: Miniature swimsuits are just heart-melting. Add some round sunglasses and a headband or turban wrap, and she’ll be camera-ready!
