Rio de Janeiro may not be the first place that comes to mind when considering a holiday with a 7 month-old baby, but we like a challenge. So far, it’s been paying off. We’re staying just a few blocks away from the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana and Lulu is adjusting well from the harsh cold of Edmonton. For her first day at the beach we packed a PeaPod for her to take shelter in.
Despite the overcast skies, we all got a bit too much sun. I carried Lulu to the water’s edge and dipped her feet into the Atlantic for her first time, but she shivered and let out a cry. It was colder than her usual bath.
After drying off, she rested and played with mum. She loves the birds and flapped her arms in excitement whenever one came around looking for crumbs. Maybe she wants to fly!
