Safety day at swim lessons
Ready to swim
She could do this all day
Swimming back to the wall
Having a snack after a long swim session
Tasha and Noelani
Kiki and Tasha
Our little Angel fan
And Nikolaus' biggest fan (and vice versa)
It has been a while since I have posted about our little fish or a "little octopus," as Natasha would like to be referred to when swimming. She is a character. Anyways, Natasha finished her swim lessons for the summer back in May and she is amazing. Natasha can jump into the pool, swim, flip over into a back float to catch her breath and flip back over to swim to us or a wall. She is definitely comfortable in the water. I still feel the need to stay in the pool with her just in case, but her ability to swim has helped me manage two kids in the pool at the same time. Natasha has been having some great fun with friends this summer. It's great to have girls her age, close by, to have regular play dates with. It is so cute seeing her interact with friends and her little brother. Yes, Natasha still loves Nikolaus. And he loves her, even after all the smothering and bossing she does. This sassy three year old makes us laugh everyday and drives us crazy at the same time. But we are so blessed that she is ours.
Here are some Tasha Tells It All stories:
Tasha: What's that line?
Tasha: On your forehead.
Me: It's called a wrinkle
Tasha: Who gave it to you?
Me: You! (Zac cracking up in the other room)
Tasha: Can we buy some plums.
Me: Yes, we can buy you some plums.
Tasha: Plums are purple.
Tasha: Say "how do you know that"
Me: Okay, how do you know that?
Tasha: Cause I just do!
Tasha: Mommy, can you please get me a snack.
Me: What would you like?
Tasha: I don't know. You figure it out.
Tasha: One day I will be a mommy and you will be my baby.
