Another first for Brigham . . .

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a HUGE waterskiing addict. As a result, Brigham's new "first" has made me a very proud Mommy!

Brigham and I had the chance to go out boating on Poppy's boat on September 1st. When I asked Brigham if he wanted to go out on Poppy's boat his response was, "waterski?" (Back in mid July Brigham was introduced to the idea that he could try to water ski when our neighbor put him on their little skis on the backyard lawn and pulled him around the yard.)

Brigham has never really been afraid of the water and he was so excited that warm September afternoon when it was finally his turn to get in the water. I really wasn't sure what he'd do when we actually got in the water with the awkward skis on his feet, but I was thrilled to see what a courageous boy that he was.

I got in the water with Brig and helped to steady him and get him going.Brigham got up on his first try and stayed up (in a sitting fashion) long enough for my dad to make a big loop and bring him back to where I was. At that point they stopped the boat right where I could catch him.
Brigham only got up that one time that day, but I was so proud of my little two year old for getting up on waterskis. (Remember, he only turned two at the end of May so this was really cool for us.)

Thanks, Dad for the day out boating and for letting Brigham get in and give it a try! We love you!I'm so pleased with my little boy for being excited to try new things and for doing so well!

You're the BEST, Brig!

Way to go Brigham, that is so amazing to me, I don't think I even tried to waterski until I went with you - you're starting him out right. I love the picture of you and your dad. What a fun memoray for Brigham to make with his Grandpa!
