swimming in Vegas {Mia's 1st time}

Getting these two besties to cooperate for a picture was just too much to ask!
"Oh hey babe, why don't you take a pic for instagram at the same time!" #bffsmeetvegas2013 HA HA!
sleepy hubby's

We enjoyed an amazing weekend in Vegas with Austin, Ashley and Chandler! Our babies are a week and a half apart, which means they were meant to be besties! I'll be posting more about our get away later, but just know that we had the best time!
Friday was a gorgeous day! 90 degrees and sunny. I mean seriously.... it was snowing 6 days before this in our neck of the woods (yuck)! We were so excited to take our babies swimming for the first time! Mia loves bath time so I couldn't wait to see her reaction to swimming! BUT we couldn't find swim diapers small enough for our girls. (Question for all my momma friends, what do you do for swim diapers? Not take your baby swimming until they fit? Mia may not fit all summer long :( Help!) The pool ended up being pretty chilly so we just stuck Mia's feet in the water. And as you can tell from the pictures.... we didn't get a reaction at all. Mia acted as if nothing just happened, ha ha!
But that's okay! We soaked up the sun, enjoyed being lazy, and LOVED spending the day outside together! I need more days like this in my life! 
And we still can't wait to really take Mia swimming :)

You give me so much hope that fun activities and outings won't have to end when I have my baby. :) Looks like y'all had so much fun!

Your sweet little girl and her BFF! Love these pics! And she will love seeing these when she is older too! You guys looks adorable. Parenthood definitely agrees with you both!

I can't wait to take Shelby swimming! good to know about the swimmy diapers! I was wondering about that.
I figure it won't be until Memorial Day before Shelby gets in the water and she will probably be big enough by then. She weighed in at 14-pounds yesterday at the doctor!!

Ahhhh I'm so sad that swimming won't be a possibility for our little one this summer, but you can bet we will still spend plenty of time at the lake and pool!!

OH MY GOSH, I just died from all the cuteness!!!!!!!!!!! Their little bathing suits are precious!!!! :) I had winter babies so by the time summer rolled around swimmy diapers fit them, so unfortunately I can't help you out there, but I'm sure you'll have mothers saying she is too young to swim and to that I say, NO WAY! ;) What's summer if you can't enjoy the sun and water!??!?!?!? :)

Jen said...

This looks like it was so much fun (and what I would do for those temperatures!!) and those 2 babies in their pink swimsuits is the cutest!!!

Cindy said...

Just buy the smallest pack you can find and use them. Its really no big deal. I don't think they even make smaller swim diapers! You could always look into cloth swim diapers (amazon, ebay, etc.) and see if they make them smaller, but we always just used bigger ones.

Erin said...

Mia is just a DOLL!!! :) So glad you guys had a good trip-- how fun will that be when she starts getting excited about 'swimming' and splashing around?! :)

It sounds like a magical day of relaxation and "first timers" for the girls.

I need one of those days soon.

Kendra L. said...

Hmm small swim diapers. I dunno! We took Crue swimming for his first time in Vegas, too! But he was like 6 months old, and a chunky monkey, so the diapers fit pretty well. I was surprised they didn't have smaller sizes when we went to buy them though... Mia's so cute!!

Shelley said...

These are so cute!! I'm not sure about the diapers because Emily was like 9 months old when we used them!

alesha said...

So fun! I didn't even think about tiny swim diapers! We want to take Lottie swimming lots this summer! And look at you in a bikini!!!

Jana Faith said...

You look fabulous & those are some seriously cute babies

Janna Renee said...

I know my parents had us in the water the second we were born! Although, back then, I don't think there were swim diapers. Haha.

SkyMommy said...

You look fantastic! And the girls are so cute in their matching swimsuits. BFFs for sure.

Kelly Slater said...

OMG, how fun! You look great! Love the pink suits! :o)

marie said...

I love Vegas! I think I've been to most of the Cirque shows which are fantastic, but lounging poolside is great fun too.

We live at the pool and beach so when my kids were little I invested in good reusable swim diapers. I guess my babies were always chunky because I never had a problem finding them :)

scrapperjen said...

Looks like a GREAT time!

Carolyn said...

cute little pink suits!!! maybe try a little swimmer OVER a diaper!?

or i am sure there are things out there on etsy that you can buy for little peanuts that fit over diapers, a water proof diaper cover of sorts?
