Last week Harper experienced a few "firsts." For the past few weeks she does not want to recline. Either when she is being held or when she is sitting in her car seat or bouncy seat she leans forward as if she is trying to sit up by herself. I decided it was time to bust out the Bebe Pod seat. She actually does really well sitting in it by herself and seems to enjoy looking at the spinning toy or just watching her crazy big sister play around her.
Handley really likes to try to sit in the Bebe Pod seat, but after some convincing she decided to get her seat instead. This picture just shows how difference they are in size right now...
Her other important "first" of last week was her first time swimming! I honestly had not really planned on getting her in the pool, but Handley was so excited for Harper to "go swimming" that I decided to put her suit on and take take her for a dip. She didn't seem to mind, while I guess means she enjoyed it. Our neighborhood pool just changed from chlorine to a salt water system this year, so I wasn't worried about chemicals, etc. bothering her skin. Her light eyes are very sensitive to the brightness of the sun, but thankfully, she isn't coordinated enough yet to pull the sunglasses off her face.
And a first for Handley too...she's finally brave enough to jump/fall off the side of the pool to someone. Now that she's realized how much fun this can be, it's all she wants to do!
