In the Pool

Today, Auntie Lindi was visiting.  After a freak rainstorm on Tuesday, it has begun to heat up again and she does not like to spend the day in her hot house (now she knows how I felt so pregnant last summer!)  By late afternoon, we were all hot and needed some fresh air, so we decided to take Scarlett swimming in the complex pool.  She was in a  great mood, so we thought it would be fun. 

By the time we got her into a swim diaper, suit, hat, glasses and sunscreen, she was less happy.  She started to cry as we walked down the block to the pool.  She was wary of the cold water and splashing neighbors, and fussed every time Chris moved.  After about 5 minutes in the water, she was completely asleep.  Luckily, my trigger finger was fast and I got a few pictures of her before she napped in a towel in the shade.

That's so great!! I know it's really hot over here in Pleasanton so it must have warmed up a little on your side of the Bay. How sweet that Scarlett actually fell asleep in the pool. I still haven't taken my boys (10 month old twins) into the pool yet (Mommy doesn't want to put on a suit...blech).

So happy that you're experiencing some sense of normalcy.

Thinking of you all!!

I totally understand. It never fails. My little girl did the same to me a couple times last year. I get her all ready to go play in her kiddie pool and by the time we get to the pool, she is about to fall asleep.

My son was the same way last summer, we got him a pool floatie (one that had a sunshade attached) and it never failed, every time he was in it he would fall asleep within 10-15 minutes!
