Big Accomplishment: Tori Loves the Ocean Now

This summer Tori had a big accomplishment, she became comfortable in the ocean.  For the past two years, Tori has not liked the ocean...she was actually fearful of it and she didn't want to go in it or for us to go in it.   This summer, I asked her to try to just tip her toe in the ocean.  She did, then I asked her if she wanted to jump in the low water near the beach...just like jumping in a puddle and she did.  She then jumped more and more and eventually was lying in the water.  A small wave even crashed upon her and she didn't panic, she laughed.  The rest of the day, she hardly wanted to leave the ocean, so we made sure to go back the next day for more ocean fun.  Here are a few of the pictures of that weekend:
