Fun In The Water

Annabelle completely surprised me today. We were in desperate need of something new to do. I am so worn out on Dora movies, coloring, blocks and play food. So I decided that I would fill up the little pool in the yard and move the "bedresting" outside for a while. Annabelle moved her little Dora chair over and put her feet in to soak. I guess she remembered doing that last time we had it out (over a month ago). I stuck my feet in too but that water was cold so that didn't last long! But Annabelle seemed to like it, despite the temperature. The next thing I know she ran around to the other side of the pool and stepped over the side and into the water. For those of you who know how deathly afraid of water Annabelle has been, this was a huge step. I couldn't believe she just did it on her own! And in such cold water! So I decided maybe we should put her swimsuit on. She looked so stinkin' cute in it, I loved it! From that point on it was fun in the water. I don't know what happened over the last month but she turned into a water girl!
She wore her Dora glasses the entire time. It was adorable.
I had to take a little video so that Josh can see. There's no way he is going to believe his eyes!

I am just so grateful to have something new for Annabelle to do where I can just sit and watch.

I am so amazed and impressed! Miss Annabelle is getting so big! Look at her just run into that water like it was nothing! She is so stinkin' cute and getting so big! I wish Kailey would let me do her hair so it could be cute like Annabelle's, but I pick my battles and that is one I have decided is not worth the fight!! She is totally smokin' in that swim suit and sunglasses too! What a cutie!!

Who would have guessed our Annabelle would get in the water! I was afraid that she was going to spend a lot of time on the shore of the lake swatting flies!! And yes stink cute on the swimsuit. Love you guys!!!

Yeah! I was wondering about that the other day, if she was really into her pool or if it was just something she liked to stare at or whatever. haha
That's pretty cool though! We'll have to come over this next week and play with you guys. I gotta learn to get out with Braden. I realize I can't stay cooped up forever.
