So if you’re going to do something momentous, like jump in the pool for the first time without any floaties, I’d like at least a few minutes to prepare. Maybe get an audience of all your biggest fans (daddy and any relatives and friends in the vicinity), coordinate your swimsuits, bring the good camera, you know, that kind of important stuff? Heh heh.
Seriously though, Ro and Ree, you surprised the heck out of me when you took off running for the pool, waved off my frantic “wait for me, or get some floaties, or, ahhhhh, wait!!!!” and leaped straight into the cool blue waters. I thought for sure I was going to have to jump in with all my clothes on and fish you out. But I guess today was the day everything clicked, because you just kept on jumping, swimming, diving, touching the bottom, and giggling like mad the whole time.
Your daddy and I are so incredibly proud of you, we just couldn’t stop talking about it. And you two looked like you were going to pop you were so proud of yourselves.(direct link to video)
Love you, sweet girls!!!
