A Day At Nana's Pool











Today I decided it was getting a little too “Flowers in the Attic” around here and I needed to come up with a plan. So I thought of the things I miss about home and decided to do a theme day each day. One of the things I miss the most is hanging out at my mother’s pool. So I told Alyssa all about it and together we spent the morning pretending. First we had to walk up to her house, so I got Alyssa dressed in her best sun suit and hat (which you can tell she was just thrilled about). Next we got out the stroller and walked up to Nana’s house (around the room about 20 times). Once at Nana’s we played with the beach/pool ball for a while. We got pretty hot doing that and went for a swim in the pool (bathtub). Alyssa had a lot of fun with that part of our game. I think next summer she will be quite the fish! Then we walked back home and Alyssa, exhausted from fun at Nana’s zonked out on the bed. It was a nice way to pass the morning.
This afternoon we went to the doctor’s for her “official medical”. She passed with flying colors! She weighs 20 pounds, exactly what I had guessed (pulled my back out tonight) and she wears a size 12 mo. But for now is having to squeeze into a bunch of size 9 mo. because I thought that would be what she would need. That’s ok, we hang out at the pool a lot anyway, thanks Nana =)
Things have settled down a lot since Monday, thank you everyone who has been saying their prayers. =)

What a great idea! It is sounding like an endurance test, though.
