Guess Who's Swimming?

After naps today, we decided to take a family dip in our backyard pool. So we slathered up with sunscreen and stepped into our swimsuits for a Sunday swim!
I decided that today would be the day for Ember to swim -- for the first time! She has a darling swimsuit that I'd picked up at "Thrift City". It didn't look like it had ever been worn. Ember sported her cute suit and her Lil Joey Cloth Diaper. I covered her head to toe with coconut oil as well as Honest Co Sunscreen to protect her soft sweet skin. 

She was a doll in the pool, a little otter! She laid back on my shoulder and kicked gently, belly up.It was the perfect evening for her to swim for the first time since her water birth! Tomorrow she will turn 4 months old, I can't believe it!

You know those "water babies" videos on YouTube that are so cool, but totally scary! As I held her I debated blowing air in her face and giving her a quick dip, but decided to wait and research more first. Have you ever tried it? Well, the funny thing is, at one point she sneezed, which flung her head down and splashed her entire face in the water! So she went under a bit after all and, of course, didn't breath in the water -- since she was sneezing air out! So funny :)

Now comes some more exciting news!

Marshall is SWIMMING! For real -- he has done little dips in the water, blown bubbles and has nervously gone under for a few kicks. Tonight, however, he was confident, and THRILLED with his new found skills! He didn't want to stop going from daddy to the steps and back again. "I did it!", "I blew bubbles, and kicked.", "I can do it all myself" he kept saying. Sometimes when he was underwater I could hear him humming -- he said he was singing Victorious! A song that Josh and our church recorded this year, one of his personal favorites!

I just had to take some video! After he got out we called both grandmas to tell them the BIG news!
The whole evening was very peaceful and relaxing. Little Ember never fussed or complained in the water. Marshall fell in love with swimming and was so proud of his new skills. Josh and I got to relax and enjoy our family!
