Sanaa is 11 months old today. Yipee! Now the count down begins until her 1st birthday. A year ago I remember being quite uncomfortable, extremely warm, and wondering what type of personality my little girl would have. And now we're a month away from celebrating her 1st birthday. Do all the years go by this quickly?
Today was a warm day and perfect for swimming. Last week I bought a kiddie pool from Walmart and this morning I inflated it and put some water in it. I wanted to give the water time to warm up and we get the morning sun in our backyard. By the time Sanaa is up from her afternoon nap part of our backyard is shaded.
Sanaa modeling one of her many swim suits. She got a bunch of hand-me-downs from Dylan plus some new ones as gifts when she was born.
Our pool. It's great! It's nice and long. The water felt great and the best part is that we have a shallow end and a deep end! (Our yard slopes and I couldn't find a level spot.) I don't have any pictures of us in the pool because Nate was at work and I wasn't about to leave Sanaa in the pool by herself. Maybe next time we'll have a picture of us playing.
I found some alphabet letters in Sanaa's closet that are for the bath tub. I pulled a handful out for Sanaa to look at and the next thing I know she's crawling all over our house with the letter N hanging out of her mouth.Did you know that penguins are not necessarily cold climate animals? (We're watching Baby Einstein and the penguins just came on, which reminded me about this.) We saw penguins at the Fort Worth zoo and discovered that only a few species of penguins actually live in cold climates. If I remember correctly the info at the zoo said that only 4 of the 17 species live in cold climates. The remaining species live in more temperate climates. The ones we saw were actually from Africa. Penguins from Africa? I had no idea.
