First Swim

We've been trying and trying, but we finally did it. Last night Eli and I took the twins to the pool! We were only there for about 45 minutes, but we had so much fun! We put sunscreen on and got ready to go...




Then we hopped in the water.



Livy loved it. I plopped her right in and she just let herself bob around.







Charlie...



Surprise! :) But he warmed up to it after a few minutes. The pacifier helped too.







We played "Motor Boat, Motor Boat", which was one of my favorite pool games as a child. I loved the feeling of being whisked through the water. Of course, we had to make some whisking modifications, so I took it slow for the first time. Perhaps we should have played "Tug Boat, Tug Boat." That may be a more appropriate title.

Anyway...we were in the pool for quite a while. When we got out we bundled them up in their towels. I think Liv made an especially cute bunny. Halloween costume idea?



Though Eli didn't make it into any of the pictures, :( he really was there. We had such a great time, we're going again today! This time we'll try out the baby floats. That should be exciting...

OH, my gosh! Cuteness to the supreme! That picture of Charlie - cutest thing. Clarkie Boy was the same way and now we have to watch him constantly because he'll jump into any body of water! Actually, any body of water that's a hot tub. :) He and Charlie remind me so much of each other. LuLu - with all that chubs, you will float for sure!! Kiss those wet cheeks, smiley!

Glad you made it to the pool :) Something that's good for babies in the pool- Blow on their face so that they gulp, then quickly submerge their head underwater and bring them back up. It sounds cruel but it's actually really good for them! Apparently babies have the natural reflexes to swim.

Looks like fun, and cute swimsuit! ;)

Brilliant just brilliant. Maybe y'all can bring them to our pool! The kids would love it...so would I.

Love and Hugs

Love the pictures - "love" the 4th one of Charlie - should read "hey, this isn't so bad, I could really get into this"
Lots of Love
