Izzy Swimming and Park

Izzy is so much fun these days! I absolutely love her so much and love being a mom. She started crawling about a week ago and she gets into everything. She pulls herself up on her own too. She loves the independence and freedom. However, this also means she falls a lot more often, which has already resulted in a bruise on her cheek! We go to the park a few times per week in the morning and she swims a couple times per week. We are loving the summer!

Izzy's first time crawling through the tunnel.
She wasn't too sure about going the whole way, but she eventually decided to.
Izzy loves the swing.
Push me higher, Mommy!
Dad is already introducing Izzy to a bat. Future softball player??!! I mean come on, look at those legs.
Mike's sister, Derdle, came to visit for a few days. We had a great time with her in town. We can't wait until she moves out here for the fall.
Izzy LOVES swimming. This is by far her most favorite activity. We go to the pool near our house sometimes, but we also bought Izzy a pool for the backyard. I grew up with a pool my whole life and have always loved the water and enjoyed swimming. I want Izzy to not fear water and be comfortable in the water. So I try to get her in the water as often as possible.
And while she swims, I try to get a tan!
This is my favorite picture.
She does have a swimsuit (SIZE 2 T!) but Mike decided to let her swim in her diaper. I can't get enough of this girl!!

She is so cute, Penny! And you, too! You've come a long way since freshman year, huh? Now you're a doting mommy! Wish you guys were closer so we could swim together. My boys and I are always swimming too.
