She's a Fish!!!



Around our house progress is usually made in baby steps...but not today! AnnaKate tried out her new swimmies last week and seemed ok with them. Today when we put her in the pool with her swimmies she whined and cried a little because it was hard work staying afloat. The second time we got in the water it clicked! She started kicking her feet and moving her arms. She seemed to get the idea of righting herself when she started floating back and sidways. She loved it and even pushed our arms away when we tried to help her. We are so proud of our little fish! I can't wait to see what she does tomorrow.

O M G!!!!! I can't wait to see her swim at Jakes B-day party next weekend! I don't use the word spunk much but she sure has it.

And have I been asleep at the wheel??? You updated your blog. I need to be more aware. I guess this diet and lack of food has effected my mind. Or could it be...no it's the diet.

Guess Who?
