As I said when I described our trip to Maine last week, Little H was not very fond of the water. While she was dipping her toes in for the very first time, Jax came running toward her full force shrieking his head off, and after that she has held true to her constant explanation, “I don’t like waves.” Even to cool down a little or during low tide, she wanted nothing to do with the ocean and preferred a bird’s eye view to her feet in the sand. I think it had something to do with the company.
Half the magic of vacation was Little H’s refrain, “Dada no go work today?” with a big old smile on her face. No work, more time to spend on his big strong shoulders, her favorite place to be.
I’d like to say she warmed up to the water over the course of the week, but that didn’t happen of course! When Daddy sets a precedent like this, why would she?
One of my favorite duos to photograph, at home or away: Daddy and his kiddos, but especially his baby girl. These two melt my heart, but mostly because I can tell she has him wrapped around her little finger.
Love those big strong shoulders and sandy toes!
