Little Swimmer

I am finally getting around to posting these. A few weeks ago, I decided to take Hayleigh swimming for the first time and my parent's house. She LOVES the bath so much that I figured the swimming pool would be like one big bath tub to her! I whipped out my "what to expect the first year book", I often refer to that as my bible because any new mom question I have, I look up in that book. LOL, Anyways... I looked up what was "acceptable" for a baby her age and swimming pools and as long as the temp was between 84-87 degrees, and I protected her skin with sunblock, I was good to go. (I really think I was just looking for an excuse to put her in her bathing suit and take pictures of her). So I put her in her little suit and matching hat to keep the sun out of her face..... took about a billion pictures, and then it was off to the pool. She was very intrigued but a little startled by the fact that the water just wasn't as warm as her little bath. She adjusted quickly though and enjoyed swishing her hands around in it and kicking her feet at it. Unfortunately, the pictures my dad took didn't turn out to well (wrong setting on his camera, come on grandpa!) so we only have a few from my camera. We plan on trying this swimming thing again this weekend (since it is friggin 110 degrees here!) so I am hoping for some better ones. So basically, consider these swimsuit model pictures.... not actual "swimming" pictures. Swimming pictures to come......
