We must not have traumatized Grandma Margaret too much because she invited us to come swimming the day after our trip. Amelia is old enough to come in too (which is good because she would no longer be content to hang out on the side anymore!)
She was clearly just WAITING to be allowed to get into the pool. My kids have all enjoyed the water, and I thought Matthew seemed really comfortable in the water from day one but Amelia is a total water baby. She was kicking as if she was ready to swim all by herself and when I flipped her onto her back she just relaxed onto my shoulder and started kicking. I was even able to swim around the whole pool with her - it was as if we'd been swimming with her for months instead of her very first time.
It was the craziest thing, but kind of nice!
