Guess who's swimming?

Bailey started swim lessons this week and has really done well. Her babysitter, Nate, has been taking her down, and had told me that she was doing well and that she'd swum the length of the pool with only a noodle wrapped around her - he didn't tell me that she was also swimming independently under water. I took her to her swim lesson yesterday and the second she got in pool she started doing this:

I was STUNNED!! She LOVES swimming - pushes the swim instructor away when they try to hold her to swim around the pool - and loves to dive down and get things off of the bottom of the pool. It was such an incredible thing to watch and I was so proud of the way that she claimed her place in the water. When I told her she was swimming like a fish, though, she replied, "no, I'm like the little mermaid!" I guess we know what has inspired her swimming!

Same time next year...

Well - one year ago (almost to the week) I wrote about taking Bailey to Farm Tots for the first visit of the year. I shared how she spent a couple of hours jumping in a puddle. I could pretty much copy and paste as today was a repeat - only there was sun. Enjoy the opening of Farm Tots 2009!

The Easter Bunny's Coming to Town

Well - ok - the Easter Bunny has come and gone. How did time pass so quickly?!?! We have been very busy here at the casa Dare. I have been working many hours, playing with Bailey, starting my career as a chauffeur (well, driving Bailey all over the place for her activities), and playing the piano (I am in the theater W-Sa evening and Su matinee, until May 17th - If you get a chance, come see Gutenberg! The Musical! at Arts West in West Seattle - http://www.artswest.org). Adam has been working a great deal - go Xbox!! Bailey, well, she's just THE BEST!! She's three and she's busy. And, she's growing up. Check out her Easter pictures (I melt every time I look at them):
