Marin had her first ever pool experience on the first day of summer. She didn't even flinch as I put her in and sat her down (it was almost as warm as bath water). I put her in the Bumbo to sit, as I secured it with my feet. She splashed and played and squealed acting like she'd been swimming a million times before. Eventually I took her out of the Bumbo and just held her with my feet. She is sitting quite well, and only tips over occasionally. After about 45 minutes in the pool, she did a nose dive, and, that was the end of her swimming for the day. She did hang out in the stroller and watch Kaden for another 20 minutes though. I think the girl enjoys being outdoors.
Here she's chewing on an empty Graeter's ice cream container. What can I say, the girl knows her ice cream!
Since you all know how much I "heart" a good deal, this swim suit was a garage sale find...33 cents!
Jason wanted to know who splashed her in this picture...my response: "our little Michael Phelps"
