Our (not so) Water Baby

In Colorado, we had the opportunity to swim at our hotel in Denver and at Glenwood Hot Springs, a special resort made with a huge beautiful pool.  Clara doesn’t care much for water, so we weren’t sure how she’d react.

This is us a year ago (Sept 2009) swimming in the Aspen Hotel swimming pool in Soldotna.  She wasn’t quite sure what to think, but not exactly protesting.

But here she was at the hotel in Denver, VERY sure what she thought about it—”Get me OUT OF HERE, Mom!”  (Shows you how often I get new swimsuits. :)  I think I definitely need a new one.  The spandex is starting to become transparent—Oops!)

But we had one more chance at the Glenwood Hot Springs pool.  They had a lovely warm swimming pool and a soothing hot pool and an unheated baby pool that was so shallow as to be quickly warmed by the sun. Clara seemed to think that was a little better.

This is how she spent most of the time at the pool, in my arms hanging on for dear life.

But the next day, at the baby pool, things were a little better.

The baby pool even had a fountain in it and was mostly deserted.

We can tell when Clara is nervous, she will totally clam up and not say a word.  The first night, it took her to being on the elevator (she likes to punch the buttons) to warm up and start talking again.  This time, she was happy just being by the side of the pool.  We decided that we just need to go swimming more often as a family to get her used to water being fun.  She sure is cute, though and the sky was so blue!  What a nice last day in Colorado.
