The Joy of Baby’s First Summer

So it’s not officially summer yet, but today was a milestone at the very busy casa. Today my sweet girl, Little L, took her first official dip in the pool. She didn’t make sound — just waved her arms a bit and stared. I could see her looking at the water, watching the kids splash around and her little hands dug into the side of my arms.


I don’t think she was scared; it was just a whole new feeling — like a bath times 1000, I suppose. As a mom, I am super excited about this summer — I didn’t get to experience this with my oldest because we were living in London at the time, so it never got that hot — and when it did, we didn’t have outdoor pools nearby.

Now it’s time to shop for summertime accessories — a new swimsuit for me and a cute hat and coverup for Little L. I can’t wait! She looked A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E in her striped bathing suit.

So who’s ready to the the summer started?
