Oh My, what a fun day! My niece, Brittney had her 13th Birthday party today at my sister's house. It was a Luau Party and Lexi and I came to join in the fun. Lexi as far as we know has never been in a pool. She hated the bath when we got her and it took weeks to get her comfortable in water so imagine my surprise when she LOVED the pool today! It was a girls party so only me and Lexi went. I wasn't even sure if we would get in the pool but brought our suits just in case and I'm so glad we did. My only regret is that her Daddy wasn't there to see our precious daughter enjoy her first pool experience. She was smitten by the older girls and watched them like a hawk. She ate hamburgers with chips (loved the Doritos!) and from then on said "NO" to her bottle.
I was never more surprised as she kicked her feet, got dunked accidentally and still loved it and when she got splashed by the little kids there she laughed rather than shied away or get upset. I had such a GREAT time with Lexi today. Things are different for sure. I came to the party under the pretense of "helping" my sister but in the end, all we did was enjoy the fun. I was no help at all.
Lexi was worn out tonight when we put her down and quickly went to sleep. I'm now wondering if she will love the beach as much as I do! We will find out soon as we leave for Amelia Island on the 6th for a week long vacation with my sister Carolyn.
