Photos: Laurel in the pool, 19 May 2006.


At first, she made a lot of noise about the water being cold and didn't want to get any further into the water.



Treading carefully into the unknown depths (mostly 3 feet, 5 feet in a few spots), she clung to the edge of the pool for reassurance.



She continued hanging onto the edge around the entire perimeter of the pool...



...stopping once to smile for the camera. (And tell me we had to print that picture to send to Grandma.)



I don't know exactly why I like this picture of her swimming, but I do.



Once she let go of the edge, she paddled the length of the pool several times. It was very important to her to go "super fast" and beat me across the pool every time. It worked out because I walked slowly.



After she was ready to get out, she shivered and told me she was going to freeze -- in 98-degree heat. Yep. I replied I was going to take a picture of her shivering so when she complained later about being hot, she'd remember that she hadn't been hot all the time.

They actually came with the swimsuit!

I would have missed it on my own since we were trying to finish picking out school clothes before the crowds came out on tax holiday weekend. The only other lady in the girls' department at the time walked by and mentioned that there were clearance swimsuits a few racks down from where we were. Can you believe we got the suit for only $5?

Cute Hello Kitty suit and glasses! Great bargain, too. Love these pictures! My favorite one, though is the one you like of her swimming. It would look awesome blown up huge...

The pool looks so inviting. I want to hop in..

Laurel is very into cute right now, I'm just trying to keep up because my clothing-buying approach has been very utilitarian.

I'm thinking about blowing up some of the neater water-themed photos I have of our family to make a grouping to hang over the couch. Vogon's not big on hanging things on the walls here and I've been making very slow inroads into that. (Laurel's room, on the other hand, has her artwork hung in neat grids on two walls as high as I can reach and I plan to get one of those giant vinyl card protecter sheets to make a changeable photo display for her.)

The pool has been very nice in our current unseasonable heat.

SO adorable. I especially love the one of her all bundled up. My younger niece loves Hello, Kitty too.

Thanks for giving me an excuse to really try out my new DSL connection (up from dial-up). Much faster downloads. *is satisfied*

I REALLY like the picture of her swimming too. She just gets cuter and cuter.
