This week the weather was beautiful. Brian took off work on Wednesday so we could go out on the boat for the first time with Annabelle since it was in the 90's. She loved it and did great, we were out 4 hours and the only little fussing she did was when she needed a diaper change or was hungry. Her new life jacket fits ok, if she was any smaller it would be to big so she has plenty of room to grow. She didn't complain about it at all and wore it the entire time we were out. We bought her a nice pop up tent to go in for naps so we can get in the water and not have to worry about the sun getting to her (even though we had the bimini up as well). I still didn't go far from the boat so I could peek in and make sure she was still sleeping. It was a gorgeous day with a nice breeze coming off the bay, we even packed a lunch to eat out on the water.
After a full day on the boat we decided to go home, feed Annabelle and head back out to the log cabin for their weekly bike / car show. It was a beautiful night to walk around, hang out with good friends and see some nice cars. Annabelle was surprisingly awake most of the time, sitting up in her big girl stroller. She played with her toys and enjoyed people watching. Today we got to the YMCA to take Annabelle swimming for the first time. At first she didn't know what to think about it, just looked all around at the people and the lights. It's such a nice Y, they have an infant pool and a kiddie pool so we stared in the 2 inch deep infant pool then when we saw that she was ok with that we moved into the 3ft kiddie pool. After some playing around with daddy she started smiling and really enjoying it. She liked moving all around the pool laying on her back. We stayed about 30 minutes then decided we should go while it was still a positive experience. We will defiantly be going back a lot more and are looking forward to swim lessons next month. In other news, Annabelle's bottom two teeth look to be coming in, I've included a picture of the little dots. Solids are also going very well, she's tried pears and loved them. Tomorrow I'm going to give her avocado and see what she thinks of that. Most of the other pictures are just some from the week, lots of smiles and her playing with her winkle toy which she loves.
