Parenthood, a photo challenge

Joining Chelsey over at The Paper Mama with this week’s photo challenge, Parenthood.

Tomorrow being father’s day, I am entering a very recent picture of Will giving Lily a swimming lesson.

Will is one of the most hands-on fathers I have met and has embraced this role of parenthood better than me at times. (i’m ashamed to say but it’s true)

Despite the word “mommy” being the most popular word in the house these days, Lily loves her pai!

“you’re doing it!”

A swimming lesson

Lily was so ready for some arm floaties. (that’s what I call them)

Whenever she is in water, she wants to be let go but, hello… she can’t swim!

So, Will got her some floaties and we tested them out in our pool on wednesday.

She was thrilled!!!!

I had never seen her so happy. 🙂

The moment Will let her go, she was smiling and squealing and trying to talk out of pure enthusiasm.

She was kicking her feet and staying close to the side of the pool, holding onto the edge and then letting herself go, she was holding her head above water, spitting water out the right way, it was awesome!!!!

We might have an early swimmer. 😉

Photo challenge!

This week’s challenge: EXCITEMENT

Now we all know that Lily is for the most part a serious girl but she does get excited every once in a while.

I have never seen such excitement in her face like the time we went swimming at Whittaker.

It was her first time and she was so excited to be there.

She wasn’t the only one, avo Joao was pretty excited too! 😉
