The other benefit to having her first class be on a Saturday is that Hannah had quite a fan club who was happy to cheer from the sidelines. Grammy met us at the house this morning and rode there with us, and my dad and his girlfriend got the address and met us there. I was a little embarrassed at first about the crowd--I mean, it's a parent-accompanied swim class, not her Broadway debut--but then it occurred to me how nice it is that Hannah has such a loving and supportive community eager to share in all her firsts, no matter how trivial, and then I was happy to have everyone there because that's what I always wanted for her, even before there was a "her."
Grammy took this first pic. It's a bit blurry, but it's also the one where she has the cutest smile so I opted to upload it anyway.
Grammy also took this pic (obviously I didn't).
I also uploaded two videos, both of which will make even the sea-leggiest person nauseas so watch at your own risk. Both have pretty cute endings though so they might be worth it.
The first one is from Grammy's camera.
When we got home, I nursed Hannah and she stayed there suckling for a long time, just like she does before bed. I suppose she needed comfort and a chance to rest and decompress from all the excitement. Then after about a half hour of quiet time in playing in her crib, she passed out and slept for 2-1/2 hours.
She only gets a 1-day break because our next class is Monday. I'll have to go that one alone which will be no easy task given that I didn't see any baby changing tables in either the women's locker room or the family changing rooms (what kind of family changing room doesn't have a changing table??). I guess they don't expect a lot of babies....Anyway, since I'll be flying solo, there won't be pics.
Oh, and how freakin cute is her suit!!! I love it.
