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!":
"ZOMG I LOVE MY POOOOOOL!!!11"
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.
