Jon turned 29 a few weeks ago. We celebrated with some friends by pretending we liked to eat Korean food. Well we only had to pretend to like some of it, some was actually decent.
Always ready when a camera is around, Scarlet pulled out some nice poses for the camera.
I've already mentioned several times Scarlet's amazing eating abilities. But sometimes she shocks even me. She LOVED Korean food. Everything from the kimchi to the squid she ate and asked for more. She is so much like her dad.
And then afterwards, they brought Jon out some celebratory birthday watermelon.
I have finally pulled out the kiddie pool with the hope that Scarlet would just think it was the greatest thing in the whole world. I was imagining my hours lying on the hammock with a book while my self-amused child splashed around. Yeah... not so much.
Jon tried the pool out first while I was at dance. You'll see it in later pictures but its a big frog mouth with a little stream of water that shoots out the front. As you can see, Jon decided the effort of finding swim gear was very overrated. His official comment was, "I didn't know she owned a swimsuit."
It started well... until the water got in her face.
But she did enjoy a little nude sunbathing with Aunt Kristy.
We tried again a week later when her friend Jane was over. As you can see, yes she does own a swimsuit. Jane didn't bring hers along though.
This was about as close as she got to the water.
Oh well, I got her in a full sized pool the other day and she had an absolute blast. Maybe there's hope yet!
And before I wrap up, I have a little dilemma I would love to have solved. Lately Scarlet has been waking up at night, a major rarity thank goodness, and when I check on her I find she has thrown her leg over her mesh bumper and has stuck it through the slats. Then, when she tries to roll over in her sleep and she can't, she wakes up and cries. Why the heck does she stick her legs through there? I checked on her last night to find her sound asleep on her back with her leg up to her knee sticking out of the crib. It's a tall bumper so she is definitely kicking her leg up there on purpose. Any ideas on how to stop her?
