First time swimming
Harley has officially joined the ranks of being in a pool! We decided to bring her to our fitness clubs indoor pool for a little introduction before we fly to Belize for 9 days.
Granted as a mom I was a little apprehensive. I was afraid the water would be too cold, the pool would be too chlorinated, or that she wouldn’t even be able to handle the noises. We went and bought swim diapers, and they don’t make any for a 12 pound baby. Panic attack number 1. Immediately I started second guessing my decision. If the smallest swim diaper was made for 16 pounds was I taking my precious little angel in a pool too early?
I am so glad that I took her. Immediately when we took her into the pool she smiled. She kicked around, and splashed with her hands. Brian and I took turns swimming her over to each other and boy did she smile. The water calms her. She was so happy sitting in our arms submersed watching other kids go through lessons. The pool was a big success!
While I got out to get a warm shower going for her (another first). Until today we had only tried baths so I was afraid of a shower but she loved it too! Her daddy and her dunked under the water before getting out and we didn’t even get a cry! As a baby I hated my face wet so I’m trying everything in my power to have the opposite for my daughter!
