Ellie has recently learned that if the water in the bathtub is at just the right level, she can lay down in the tub and not have her face be covered by the water. The first time she did this was when Keith was bathing her and I heard him yell for me to come in the bathroom. I was a little concerned when I walked in our bathroom and saw our child floating face up just a few inches away from drowning, but she looked like she was having a good time so I let it go, plus Keith was right there so I knew she was fine. Last night when I was hanging out with Ellie in the tub she started to move around and get herself situated as if she was going to try to lay down again. This time I yelled for Keith to get the camera. While she was laying there she started kicking her feet and calling herself a mermaid “like Ariel”. When Keith was taking pictures she kept kicking and saying “cheeeeese”. She is crazy. Maybe this year she will actually enjoy swim lessons.
