belly-flopped jumped in...
Ainsley jumped in...
And then Ainsley shocked us all by jumping in with no floatation device! And yes Liz, if you're reading, it took a little bribing:) But it really didn't take much this time. The conversation went like this:
- Me: "Ainsley you wanna try to jump without your little float belt?"
- Her: "No"
- Me: "Okay"
- Her: pauses and starts stepping from one foot to the next like she has to go to the bathroom and then says "Can I get the Fancy Nancy outfit?"
- Me: "Yes but probably not today" (The Fancy Nancy outfit is an inexpensive dress up thing she spotted at Target one time)
- Her: throws off the belt and jumps right in and the belt didn't go back on after that. I was pretty impressed. It's only taken about two years for her to do that.
Hey, there's nothing wrong with a little bribing, I was bribed throughout my younger years and it eventually got me a swimming scholarship! LOL ;0
Just look at the smile on her face- priceless!
Side note: Harper saw Ainsley's nails and insisted that she have hers painted as well so now Harper has hot pink toes and nails too:)
Although, did Harper eat them? Of course not-maybe 3 bites tops! She's going through that typical 2 year old faze of picky eating-very frustrating!!
I snuggled with my sweet Bennett...
He's right at 11 pounds by the way!! Hoping he doesn't lose too much after surgery but I've been told they chunk right up so we'll see.
Sunday morning we made Belgian waffles for breakfast- usually it's just pancakes on Sundays but we decided to change it up a little...
We watched "The Incredibles"- not quite age appropriate just yet, the girls kept asking "where's Cinderella, where's Sleeping Beauty?"LOL
We had plans to go to the park and fly the girl's Barbie kite but since it was yucky out that never happened. They've told us the average hospital stay for Bennett's surgery is any where from 3-7 days so we're hoping and praying for a short stay so we can all be back together again. I have a feeling August is going to fly by just as fast as July did! 4 more days to go!!
