puddle jumpers...

Feeling MUCH better today, folks! Thank you for your prayers for us as we had a rough start to our week at the beach. We're thinking it was maybe just a stomach bug because things are much, much better today. So grateful...

I know many of you that read this blog are either parents or grandparents of young kids yourselves, so I MUST share this must-have summer item (or a great gift idea) if you are new to the "kids scene" and like me, hadn't heard of these things before...

See my floatie? It's called a Puddle Jumper and it's absolutely the perfect thing for a kid like me to wear to a pool or on a boat! (they come in different colors/themes) Not only is it considered a certified Coast Guard life flotation vest, but it doesn't fall off, it keeps me upright in the water, and it allows me lots of independence.

Mommy's friend raved about these last summer, and if only Mommy had listened sooner because she was right-- these things are awesome! (they should pay me to advertise for them, don't ya think? Well, we know a good thing when we see one...)

Now I can float on my own!

...and it's helping me learn to swim! Today I started using my arms and kicking my feet to get around the pool. I wore myself OUT with all of this new mobility!

...until somebody had to keep me still long enough for a smooch. :)

    Love y'all,
