She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow...

Bikini!! We bought Cora a swimming pool today and the perfect accessory to go with it--a bikini!  Its not actually yellow, though.  More aqua.  Her pool is one with inflatable rings instead of walls.  Its large enough for Geron and I to get in with her and have plenty of room for her to play.  She absolutely loves her pool!!  I don't know how long I let her play in it, but she loved every minute of it.  Of course being the swimmer that I am, I had to let her go under the water a few times so she would learn to love water, too.  She didn't fuss a bit.  She splashed and floated and jumped--while holding on to the side of the pool, of course, or Mommy or Daddy. If you need a baby to take a nap, just put them in the pool for half an hour and let them wear themselves out.  Cora took a great nap this afternoon and is taking another as I type.  Swimming pools are da bomb!
P.S. For you worry warts out there, I lathered Cora in sunblock 50 before we went out so no burns there.

I am so happy that you let her "swim". That's why the three of you aren't afraid of water. We used to push Bubba back and forth, submarine, and Annie Lou was swimming across the pool by the time she was three. Pools are great for little people! Love you, all three (five, counting Preston and Patsy) of you!
