Buba you are becoming the best swimmer ever. You are getting so brave and now swim so good underwater. I am very proud of you as you wouldn’t put your face under the water willingly in your swimming lessons so you have really come far on vacation. Daily you get ready to go jump in the pool and slide down the slide right into the water to splash about in. Outdoor fun really suits you. You have less tantrums running and being free. The sun has brought on a whole new happiness to you while we have been state side. Mommy is really loving how much fun you are having here and I can’t believe you will be turning 3 years old Wednesday! It really has gone way too fast.
Missy Moo along with your brother you are a true water baby. You don’t want to have floaty arm bands on or even sit in one of those amazingly comfortable floating. The ones I wish I could still fit in and float around lazily in the sun. You want to be a big girl and jump around freely in the pool like your brother. You watch him swim underwater then you dip your own face underneath just to see what it’s all about. The first few times surprised you but you are becoming a pro at it now. Your walking is getting a little better. You have taken more steps in a row and you are getting stronger on your feet. Summer in America is really suiting you with that sun kissed skin of yours, glowing and your blonde hair that’s finally growing.
Together you both are a team but every team has it’s fall outs. There are tantrums, fighting, jealousy, and pushing I won’t deny the truths of having two under two (almost three). But when all that sibling rivalry that is normal fades you have so much love for each other and fun together, especially when it comes to swimming. You share your water toys, you help each other go down the slide into the pool, you take turns running from side to side and bouncing on the side. If I let you both I think you would stay in the pool all day, everyday together; giggling, laughing, splashing, and swimming the days away.
