Emma expanded her diet to include wholegrains during our beach trip...grains of sand! The first thing she did when she put her hand into the sand was to grab a handful and eat it. I thought that would put her off doing it again, but no! It turns out that Emma really likes to eat sand. We tried to keep her on the blanket and in the tent because every time she felt sand beneath her hands she grabbed another handful and shoved it in her mouth before we could stop her. When we put her in the sea, she would wait for the waves to go out and then take the opportunity to partake of some grainy goodness. Odd, odd baby! Still, for your viewing pleasure, I have included a video of Emma eating sand. Thankfully, she was none the worse for eating half of Talacre beach!
