Belle's First "Swim!"

I had to post these even though they're not very exciting just because they're her very first time in water! We've been on beaches a few times, but she's never actually been swimming ever in her life so far! Her only experience so far is in the bathtub or kiddie pool. We didn't go very deep here either since the water is freezing cold, but "Grandpa" took her out for her first swim. Awww!

He held her out a few inches above the water, and her little legs started paddling for all they were worth! So then he slowly lowered her in, and her eyes got big as saucers! LOL! Still no idea if she can actually swim or if she would sink since she could almost touch bottom. :rolleyes:

Spencer & Sydney went for their first swim this summer too, it was so exciting (I made them wear life jackets though, just incase. Sometimes it can be hard to handle the two of them at the same time so I wanted to make sure they were both safe and wouldn't sink.

Cute pics BTW.
