Photography Challenge: New

This week's theme is "NEW"  and there are so many things that I could post photos of... all the new stuff for the new baby is one of the things I've thought about posting, but I don't really have any good photos of that. I have this song in my head now (oh baby it's a new day...) and I'd love to take a photo for it... but I was up all night with contractions and not feeling terribly creative at the moment. So here is my shot for today's challenge: my oldest and her "new" skill - swimming. At the beginning of summer I outlawed face masks because I wanted my oldest especially to learn to swim with her face in the water... after weeks of complaining she finally gave it a try and is doing brilliantly.

She looks like she's having a blast! And a great splash capture in the first shot!

So sorry to hear your nights are less than pleasant...I'm convinced God does that to us so sleepless nights are not a complete shocker once the baby's here! :)

Oh - and love the new button!! It's absolutely delicious!

So glad that you were able to get a shot of this. My youngest (3) went under the water for the first time - even going so far as to try and swim between Hubby and I. I so wish I could have a picture of that first moment when I pulled her out of he water. The smile was priceless.

How fun for her! I'm so glad she tried it out, she must feel much more free in the pool!
