Water world

We finally took Em swimming for the first time yesterday in my in-laws' heated pool.

"This ain't too bad!"

I'd like to say it was all sunshine and smiles...
Happier

But...
Even the floatie can't help

...much of the time was spent like this:
Not so much

She's not quite a fan of the water yet, but I have no doubt that she will be someday soon.

  1. Is it wrong that I even find these shots where she's crying adorable? She'll be a mermaid before you know it.

  3. Ooh, no wonder she was freaking out. That pool toy thing is scary (it's nothing like the one that I was describing to you the other day).

  4. Poor Em. She probably thought it was some huge bathtub. Actually I went in my "unheated" pool this weekend and my facial expression was pretty much the same :)

  6. It's my first time to your blog, and I have to admit I just spent, like 10 minutes soaking up the photos of your gorgeous Em. GORGEOUS!

    *ahem* My oldest HATED the water for the longest time, but now, as a 5 year old, she is jumping off the diving board and swimming for hours and hours every day. It'll happen!

  9. She's so cute - even when she's mad (I laugh at Benny when he cries sometimes because it is adorable).

    Also, I need to get me some in-laws with a pool...sounds lovely!
