So, today was the first really warm day we had, so I decided to set up my inflatable pool in the front yard for a dip. I bought it last year, but because I was pregnant, I never got around to using it. So this afternoon, after returning from the store with a brand new pair of swim diapers for Sara, I got it all ready.
First, the diaper, which is like a cloth diaper, but for water use, was almost too small for her. I'll have to go back later and get the next size up. Next, I went to put her swimsuit on, which is a 6-12 month size, and of course, it was too small. Luckily, I had bought a second suit, 12-18 month, and it fit her just right. Guess I'll be going back to Janie and Jack before vacation to get her a few more suits, because they have the most adorable baby swimwear!
I took all of Sara's favorite bath toys and put them in the pool, then I got in myself, and it was absolutely freezing! I didn't know how Sara would take it, but I dipped her feet in, and of course she screamed her head off.
I went inside and filled up several buckets of hot water to put in the pool. That made the temperature a lot more tolerable, so we tried again. Nope! I no more than dipped her toes in, and it was hysterics. I threw in the towel-not literally-after that. I changed Sara back into her outfit, and then I went to enjoy my pool myself for a bit before I had to empty it. Oh well...
I guess I'll be waiting for warmer temps before trying again. I'll also have to get a smaller kiddie pool, as mine proved to be just a bit too big, and a bit of a hassle. Hopefully though, Sara will come to love the water and swimming as much as her mom does!
