THIS baby, on the other hand, L-O-V-E-D the baby pool!
We keep a closet full of all our floaties and ice chests and beach chairs and such from days past. This, if you can remember, was Jake's floatie. Wish I was all organized and could just link you right up to his pics in this floatie. But I can't so... just trust me!
Anyway, that is JinJin holding Scaredy cat and floatin' miss Kneivel all around that 1' pool.
And this is Miss Mickey. She is one of mom's good friends, and now one of my GREAT friends because she drove the 8ish hours down here from WM to bring my sweet patooties to me! They are staying at the condo til Thursday. So there will be a day overlap with them and the Seabs. I am grateful Mickey was available and willing to help!
Note Gabbi chewing on a dive toy. She is BOUND to be getting a tooth soon. That kid is chewing on everything and drooling like crazy to boot.
Ok, so you think it is ok that Ellie likes her boots?! Welllllll, THIS is what my kid looks like poolside!
Somebody said, should a big rainstorm come up, she'd be ready! So true!
I couldn't believe I encouraged her to wear her little beachhat for as long as I did. (and of course the boots are on the wrong feet too!)
Gabbi didn't like hers so much either, but if it is one thing I have learned about my Gabbi Girl... she is a trooper. I mean, that kid goes with the flow in just about any situation.
HOW CUTE IS THIS BABY?!
Can you see how deep it is? I mean, I am SITTING on my buttocks! FLAT on the bottom. And still... no Ellie! I swear, our baths are deeper than this!
Oh, well, she missed a party!
I cannot wait to have some of these pics cropped, photoshopped and blown up to add to the collection on the wall down here. I will have to show you a pic of that wall. I LOVE all my personal photos staying up for vistiors to get to see. But, NO Gabbi.... YET!
ANd then, we were heading to get some french fries when other kids ahead of us were at the ice cream box. Ellie was on her toes with them trying to see what all the commotion was about.
Today, Ellie learned about Push ups. (You know those nasty orange flavored things that we all had to have off the ice cream truck?!)
And this is Ellie Bellie post push up!
We later took MANY awesome pics in the big pool and on the beach, but I will have to share those later! Dad and Masson will be heading down early tomorrow! Yippeee!
Love to all of you, and Missy, hey! I need your mailing address so I can send you a scrapbook kit. Jessi has it together; just needs your address. Yours too, Denise Bell, if you are reading. Email me... firstname.lastname@example.org Y'all were the two winners in my contest not long ago!
And speaking of kits, I have put together about 7 or more options of earrings that I could put into a CHEAP kit for earring making! I need to know if anyone is interested! I thought I could post the earrings and let you choose the 3 pair you would like to make on your own. I would then put those components into a kit for you. I am using fairly cheap supplies, on purpose, to make it very affordable to those who want to do it. So, is there anybody out there who LIKED the earring kit and wants to make some more? I may post the earrings tomorrow to get you all psyched up about jewelry making all over again! Ha.
Be cool. Melanie
