August 2014

August was a busy but fun month. I signed Eliza up for a parent/child swimming lesson for a week and I was hoping that she would get more comfortable in the water. Well, the first day she did great and I was pleasantly surprised. On the second day, she ended up clinging to me for dear life screaming “Get me out, get me out” over and over. Later she told me “I don’t like the pool because it’s the pool.” We went 3 out of the 4 days because one day was really cold and I didn’t want to take her and then she was finished and got her certificate. After her last swim class she said “I am so happy now!”

Later in the month we decided to join the Renaissance Club Sport. It’s a gym with a pool and also a nice childcare area called Kids World. Eliza just loves it there. I have also been taking her to the pool a lot since many of our friends belong here as well. There is a lap pool, family pool, and kids pool. She would ask to go to the pool and then when we get there just sit in a chair and read a book. Seriously. It is so weird. But then we were there one day with her friend Summer and we didn’t have her bathing suit and hadn’t planned on swimming. But as soon as Summer and her mom got into the kids pool, Eliza wanted to get in too. She ended up loving it! So we spent most of the month of August going to the pool either on weekdays or weekends. It was fun and I was happy that she was finally enjoying the water!

Eliza was still loving school and we got into agood routine of doing fun things on her two days a week home with me. I think we both look forward to having that time together. It has been great for both of us!

Here are some funny things that Eliza said in August:

I have curly hair. Just like a sheep.

You’re not nasty.  You’re hilarious.

Eliza, please go downstairs with daddy. No, I’m here to save you!

Eliza is cracking me up today. She just told me that grammy’s other name is Mary Eli July.

Trying on gloves and laughing: They’re like socks for your hands!
