An 11-inch holly blog with a phoenix feather core

This summer is the first summer in years that Iʼve been in a position to go to a swimming pool a lot. Living in housing without a pool, working full-time, and being too pregnant to fit into a small piece of stretchy fabric all have kept me from enjoying summertime as much as I wouldʼve liked, until now.
We just got a family pass to our neighborhood pool, and itʼs pretty much my new favorite thing. Emily and I go to the pool at least twice a week, and we take William swimming with us on weekends. Emily, in characteristic fashion, shows no fear at the pool and loves being in the water. The kiddie pool is nice because it slopes in, so she can sit up in the shallower side of the pool and crawl around in the water to her heartʼs content. But she most likes to glide around in the water with my help. Sheʼs quite the water baby and even has a little tan line to prove it!
We took our camera with us to the pool yesterday, because I wanted some pictures of Emilyʼs super-cute swimsuit, which is almost too little for her.
Sheʼs such a ham when she sees us with the camera!
She keeps the little hat on pretty well, though I donʼt know how much good it does in keeping the sun out her eyes.
I really liked how these pictures turned out. William takes such artsy pictures!
And here we have one swimmed-out baby who slept very well last night. We love the pool!
