Hannah's First Time Swimming

It's been a pretty hot summer here in Chicago, so I've tried to take every opportunity to expose Hannah to the swimming pool. It's something we like to do, and hoped she would enjoy it as well.

We bought her a blow up baby pool to keep in our yard for days when we can't get to the community pool. We tried that out with her first on Memorial Day, but weren't as smart as we should have been about the water temperature. She HATED the cold!

A couple of weeks later we finally ventured out to the Barrington pool. The pool is great for families. It has a huge baby pool with a zero depth entrance, making it easy to sit in the water with the baby. 

The first time we tool her to the pool, she was still unsure about the water, but the second time she went to the pool she discovered how fun it could be! She was splashing and laughing and having a great time. 

As you can see from the photo above, she's also sitting up all by herself now. This is a big milestone for a baby! It's exciting for us to see her grow and change every day.
