More Swimming

Natalie has been shocking me almost every day this week with her swimming! Today she jumped off the side of the pool into the water. I have been trying to get her to do that all summer. Earlier this week she jumped off the steps into the pool but for some reason the side of the pool scared her. Today Shane held her hand while she jumped in. After about 3 jumps he let go of her hand mid jump. She was so excited that she jumped in by herself she just kept jumping in over and over. She was really proud of herself. :) Then later he came up behind her and picked her up and threw her. She had such a huge grin on her face when she got out of the water. All these crazy steps she's taken in the past 2 weeks. All because we bought her goggles!

 Love this shot of Shane throwing her in the water!
 Heidi wears goggles too but she doesn't actually go underwater with them. They just leave marks on her face. I don't know what the squished face is for but it sure is cute!

A video of Natalie jumping in the pool. Such a happy girl! I knew she could do it. :)

Great shots of The Nat in the pool. I am so proud of her and her new found love of the water. It will be interesting to see what she does next. Love you. Daddy
