Lil' Swimmer

We introduced Abigail to the pool last year when she was only 3 months old and took her to the pool most weekends and she was so great about it. However, this year we were a bit nervous as to how she'd handle the pool as she wouldn't remember it from last year and she's recently developed a fear of our big bathtub. *This means we have to do baths in the sink...fine by me although it's small!*

Last weekend we bought Abigail a new float, which was in a picture in the last post and she did ok at the pool. No fear, but no squeals of delight.

Perfect "Daddy/Abigail" photo - we're framing for her room and his desk!
That all changed yesterday! Abigail was squealing with excitement in the pool. She was kicking her little feet as hard as she could while in her float. Abigail climbed the stairs in the baby section of the pool and poured water in and out of her containers. And.....

Abigail kept putting her face into the water herself!! She never swallowed any and never sputtered. She just wanted to check it out I suppose!! Yesterday, Abigail spent almost 3 solid hours at the pool. She tried a nap at Aunt Cat's house so we (Dan, myself and Walter) could stay at the pool but we've trained her to sleep in her crib or playyard so well, she isn't able to sleep elsewhere (except the carseat) so we all packed up, came home, and she conked out for four hours!!

We all have runny noses and sore throats today...must be a small cold...or allergies! Anyhow, here are a few pictures of our now FIFTEEN MONTH OLD Abigail!! We will have 15 month stats for her later this month!!

With Mommy - we both just woke up Saturday morning!

Had dinner with Grandma & Grandaddy Friday evening!

Dad's gaming buddy!!

Playing in her room - note the Christmas ornament and Desitin in her hands!
