Noelle's First Swim!

Last weekend, it was so hot and sunny, so we thought maybe Noelle should get a taste of swimming in a pool! We went to our friend Kevin's apartment pool and Luke eased her in. She didn't have a swimsuit yet, but she wore a long sleeved white onesie to protect that baby skin of hers as well as her sun hat. Luke slowly took her deeper until her little bootie was under water. She didn't scream her head off like I anticipated, but I don't think she was a fan of the super cold water!

The next day, we went to Abe & E's and hung out by their baby pool. :-) We did get a swimsuit for Noelle (which happens to be size 12m because she is so LONG) as well as some baby sunblock (SPF 60). I know...worst mom of the year because you're not supposed to use sunblock on babies until they are 6 months old without consulting a doctor, but we put the tiniest bit on and didn't notice a reaction of any kind, so we put more on her legs and shoulders. I really like it-- it's Neutorgena Baby and comes in a deoderant stick form.

Anywho, she slept in her pack & play for most of the day because the heat was so exhausting. She still looked adorable in her suit and hat even though she didn't touch the water that day!
