a little bit butterfly, a little bit fish

Today was a first for our little spitfire.  We took her to the neighborhood pool, and well, she loved it!

How could I resist the butterfly bathing suit?

She loves bath time, so I wasn’t worried about her being afraid of the water.  We took it easy, letting Dad walk her over to the shallow end to try it out.  Once she realized it was a GIANT BATHTUB, she was all in.  ALL in.

She walked around a bit, and then came over to the deeper end where she got lots of one-on-one Mama time.  We worked on laying on her back and relaxing to float.  She wasn’t a fan at the start, but once she realized I wasn’t letting her go, she relaxed.  We worked on kicking her little legs, which she totally did not understand at first, but after a while watching Brady, she picked it up and started kicking away!

By the end of our outing, I determined that our little butterfly may actually be part fish, as well.

The first time she jumped to me, I could see the fear in her eyes.  But once she realized that Mama was going to catch her, she wanted to jump over and over and over again!

On the way home, we heard a lot of, “I like-a dat wah-ya!” (I like that water), and “I like-a dat wim-min!” (I like that swimming)

I think it’s safe to say the pool was a hit.
