Today Jordan (DSS) and Kaelin and I went to a neighborhood across the way to visit our friend Bennett and his mama, Amy. We took our friends from our neighborhood, Steph, Gracie and Charlie.
We all met at Amy and Bennett's pool for a picnic lunch and some swimming. It was GREAT! I wish we had a pool in our neighborhood! I got Kaelin her very own little float that looks like a flower. It has a canopy to keep her shaded and a mesh surrounding piece that you can put toys on! She was happy in it for a bit, but then wanted to do some more pool exploring. I dunked her twice and she did fine. Steph gave me a tip I hadn't heard of: Count 1, 2, 3! Then blow in the baby's face. This will cause them to take a breath before you dunk them. I did it with Kaelin and it worked. I also started her jumping in from the side of the pool (with help, of course!).
She is napping HARD right now. She pretty much crashed when we got home. Swimming is the best way to get a baby to sleep well!
