My Sweet Little Swimmer
Taeya got to go to her first birthday party for Hannah from our church. She was turning 1 and had a swim party at a indoor pool in our area. I found a little swimsuit for Taeya to wear and she got to go swimming. :) The water was a little cooler than bathtub water so Taeya would start crying for a few seconds when I first put her in it.
After a tiny bit of initial crying, she relaxed and enjoyed herself. She floated really well on her back and even kicked her legs while I supported her head. She went underwater a few times too and did great. Because the water lowers her body temperature pretty quickly she only stayed in for about 5 minutes the first time and then I warmed her up with a towel. The air was VERY warm so she actually fell asleep shortly after getting out. Before we left, we went swimming again. The pictures are from her second time in the water. I sure hope I get to take her to the pool a lot this summer.
