Ada's been swimming a few times. In her backyard tub. In a lake. But never before in a proper pool. Today was way too hot to not dunk into water. So we packed some towels and met up with some family for some splashing.
(You'll have to excuse my strange swim getup. We didn't intend to visit the pool on our visit to NJ -- so I had to piece together odds and ends from what I haphazardly tossed into my bag.)
She loves water, just like her daddy. Actually, she's growing into quite a mini-me version of Stephen. I still get comments every now and again from store clerks and other strangers about how much she looks like me. But I know people are just being nice.
I mean, look at this:
She is definitely her father's daughter. There's no question. It's fun to see how her looks and personality change as the days, weeks, and months tick on. I try my best not to wish away the days, but I am so curious how she'll be at a year old and beyond.
What I can tell you is that, in this moment, life is fun. Stephen and I often look at one another on a lazy Sunday afternoon when we've done absolutely nothing of significance, and we can't help but remark that THIS -- Ada -- was what was perhaps missing from our lives.
Not that we weren't complete people or that our relationship wasn't whole, but with all the ups, downs, and all-arounds -- we're starting to forget what life was like before Ada.
