In the beginning of the summer, which weather wise for you non-Floridians is late April/early May, Aubs wanted nothing to do with the water. We were kind of shocked by this because last year she had loved it. I guess the 6 month gap where we didn't take her in at all really screwed up her confidence.
The ocean was her first big "back in the water" milestone. As soon as saw her friend of equal stature Kingston go in, she was all for it too. You can tell by my post last week that there is no keeping her out of the water once we are at the beach. We were actually there today and I can barely move now because I was jumping waves holding her in the water. Not a smart move when you're 8 months pregnant. Now I know what to do and where to go if I want to make myself go into labor a couple of weeks early.
The pool was a different story. She was not having it at all. We pretty much had to drag her in screaming and then when we finally got her in her would cling to us like there was no tomorrow. By clinging I mean actual marks around our necks from her gripping on so hard. We were pretty unsuccessful about getting her to go in until last weekend. Out of nowhere she started letting go and trying to swim on her own, well with floaties but you know what I mean. She also decided that it would be fun to jump off the high part of the patio by the hot tub into the pool. Needless to say we have been in the pool almost everyday since last Friday.
