Sophie’s First "Swim"


This is my brand-new pool. Karen, a really nice woman Dad works with, gave it to us!


I was so excited to get in I could hardly stand it.


Mom and Dad took so long. So I just decided to get in by myself.


Apparently you’re not supposed to wear shoes in a pool. (Who knew?) And guess what? They took my diaper off, too!


OK, so it was a little cold. And I, maybe, had a little fit. So I sat on Mom’s lap for a bit.


See how brave I was?


Tucker, apparently, had no problem with the temperature of the water.


It was fun! I’ve been in it several times since. And the last time I was in it, I actually sat all the way down in the water and played with my bath toys for a really long time! So thanks, Karen. This is going to be a way better summer than last year. (Although, to be fair, last year I wasn’t even rolling yet.)
