Kellie and I spent all day together yesterday, while Rich busied himself with another wedding. We worked on several wonderful projects, which I will post about very soon on my craft blog!
But for now, I just had to post these photos of Alana’s first time ever in a pool!
Kellie and I took a break after hours of sewing pillows and coasters (again, more on that soon!) to run over to Clark and Maureen’s pool. And of course, we documented this momentous occasion with many a photo and even several video clips
Alana was VERY apprehensive at first. As I waded into the pool, which was a very comfortable temperature, she started to whimper and then just began crying. But we gave it a bit longer, and she gradually acclimated to the whole idea of a much bigger, slightly cooler bathtub!
Ten minutes after the first video of her initial reaction (crying), Kellie grabbed the camera again for another video, because Alana had calmed down and even began to splash the water with her hands. After another ten minutes had passed, she was outright enjoying herself! She let me gently glide her through the water as she cooed and babbled, and she even began to kick her little legs! It was soooo cute. But I’m her mom…so of course I’m smitten with everything she does
I’ll stop rambling and just post the fun pictures!
Before braving the water…
At the beginning: pensive and very concerned!
Then: having fun in the water!
Kellie even used my underwater point and shoot to grab some chubby baby leg pictures! So fun!
Winding down and relaxing. I think she’ll be a little fish when she gets older.
Thank you again for the day of perfection, Kellie!
And thank you to Clark and Maureen for the use of their beautiful pool! We had a blast!
And a side note for everyone who loves Etsy! As my blog readers are aware, Kellie has an Etsy Store called Every Jot and Tittle with amazing, creative paper products. I wanted to announce that she just launched another Etsy store with super cute stuff, so you must go check it out! it’s called 2 Pear, and it will be a fun assortment of goodies, both handmade and not.
