Another exciting Becca milestone.

Yesterday, Becca and I were swimming in our landlord’s pool. Actually, I just hold her in the water, she doesn’t really swim yet. I’ve been trying to show her how to blow out into the water, but usually she just puts her mouth below the waterline, sucks a bunch of water into her mouth, and then playfully spits it out. But this time, we were hanging together in the water on the ladder by edge of the pool when, on the count of three, she took a deep breath and put her head under water *all by herself*. Then she went on to do it another twenty times. So exciting, at least for me.
