A few weeks ago, I introduced E. to corn. I was having it on the cob and I cut off some pieces for her to eat. For some reason, I never thought to just give her the cob. So when we were having some again with some friends and one of them suggested giving it to her, I thought, "Why didn't I think of that?" The cooked kernels aren't a choking hazard and she'd have to work pretty hard with her 2.5 teeth to get anything off but she likes chomping on things. Here she is trying it out in her own unique way:
It's a little dark because we had candles, low overhead lighting, and there was a thunderstorm (what a surprise) outside.
Once E. got used to the coldness of the water, I put her in the baby float. And that was the best thing ever! She kicked like crazy and was really excited.
In this video, I really wish there was some sound (and that you could see her face) because E. was cracking up and squealing. She thought it was so funny to see my face down in the water when I was treading water. You can see how excited she was by the way she leaned way over and flapped her arms and bounced.
One of R's students hosted us this weekend on Long Island while R was in a plein air painting event. E and I enjoyed their pool and in this video (no audio, sorry) you can see her flapping around in the water for the first time. For some reason I keep making a strange squinty face, so please ignore me!
