It's great for both of us! Ella Claire loves splashing and playing in the water and I enjoy soaking up every ray of sunshine that I can. This is my first summer ever to not spend lounging in a pool....so I am in desperate need of a little Vitamin D from none other than Mr. Sunshine. So, my legs and everyone that can see them are thanking me. :) As you can see from one of the pictures, Ella Claire even enjoyed lunch in the pool one day. Her favorite...Avocado. Where in the world she puts all this food that she eats I have no idea?!? Everyday for lunch she either eats an entire banana or an entire avocado. That is a lot of food!
Ella Claire and I have also been busy having play dates at The Watermelon Patch. Daphne, a friend from high school and nursing school invited us to join her and her little boy Titus to a Mommy and Me class once a week. Erin, another friend from nursing school and her little girl Anna Claire take the class too. Titus is 7 weeks younger than Ella Claire, and Anna Claire is 6 weeks older than Ella Claire. Another friend Sara Jane has been bringing her daughter Laura Katherine to the class also. Babies babies everywhere!! Fun Fun!!
The class is only about 45 minutes long and the babies play with musical instruments, and bubbles while we sing silly songs. Ella Claire loves it all except the parachute. All of the adults grab a handle and the babies play underneath the parachute. I don't know what it is, but EC crawls to me and tries to climb up my leg everytime. Silly girl! For the last 10 or 15 minutes the babies have open play. That's where they get to crawl wherever they want and play with whatever they want. The floor is covered in huge thick play mats and the rooms are filled with fun learning toys. It's a great place for little ones to go to get out of the house a bit, and a great place for mommies to get out too! ;)
Here is one last picture of my water baby enoying her bath time!
