alex in her pool

so a couple weekends ago we got alex her first little pool.

in anticipation for what was most likely to be a monumentous occasion, i slathered her in sunscreen & bug spray & squeezed her into her bathing suit.

...only to get outside & realize that even after sitting in the sun for 2 hours. the pool water was still at a hypothermic level. like, insanely cold.

so i boiled some water & poured it in. FINALLY- success. water that would not endanger my child's life with it's fridgid temperature.

i got the camera ready & put the hubs on "get baby in the pool duty": (all pics are SOOC- so no fun editing peeps)

we started with the slide:

ok- we're cool with the slide. now- water time:

initial reaction: "get me the eff out of this pool!":

but then she started to warm up to the idea:

"...wait, i can splash you say?":

"well i'll be!":

splish splash


and there you have it folks. alex's first time in her pool.

unfortunately about 3 minutes later she realized that she could pull herself halfway over the side of said pool & eat the dirt & grass. hmm, ok.

so after distracting her, she got on her tummy in the pool and pushed herself around- fun! until she swalled some water, choked on it & threw up in the pool.

then pool time was over. but it was fun while it lasted.

Pin It!

PRECIOUS!!! My daughters first pool experience was the same exact way! She ended up getting used to the cold water though and splashed her little heart out! Maybe I should be a nicer mom and make the pool more like a sauna??? nahhh she needs tough skin!! And I still cant get over how freaking adorable your little girl is!
