Fun time with friends

Kind of pissed that I put her underwater

And we’re happy again

She loves to splash around

Yesterday we went over to our friends house, Steve and Julie.  While it was an day was filled with overcast, it was still nice to get out of the house for a bit.  I know how important it is for Lola to stay on top of her therapy, but she also needs to just be a kid too.  The water baby went in the pool and even went underwater this time around.  She didn’t quite know what to make of it at first, but then she went on being her happy little self.  She is very smart when it comes to correlating actions with sounds and every time I would hold her up out of the water, she would prepare herself as if I was going to dunk her again.  I only tortured her once with it as I didn’t want to freak her out.  I love that she loves the water as much as I do!  

After we got home, I wanted to rinse her off.  I was once told by Will that showering with Lola would be a great way to bond because of the skin to skin contact.  So I brought her in the shower with me and once again…she simply loved being in the water.  I thought she may get freaked out from the noise of the shower, but she was giggling away.  Once she was all rinsed off, I put her in the Bumbo seat (still in the shower) and she played with a washcloth.  It was nice for me to be able to finish showering while she remained content as could be.  Just another reason why Tumblr parents are amazing.  I love all of the good advice!
