yesterday marked our second trip to the neighborhood swimming pool. we went two weeks ago, but the water was too cold, you were crying for hunger before we even got in (mom forgot to bring your bottle), you didn't have a hat, sunscreen, etc . dad was skeptical to try again yesterday because you still don't fit in the smallest size of little swimmers, but he obliged to mom's demands (mom loves the pool more than she should). i think you actually liked it! you didn't really cry as mom bounced you around in the water and seemed content kicking your little legs under water. we had to cut the adventure short because mom forgot the new hat she bought you at target and didn't want you to get sunburned. she also forgot a towel, change of clothes, etc.
it is tough to remember everything you need on outings! today i am making a pool bag so we are prepared. in the bag: sunscreen, baby towel, blanket, dry onesie, diapers (one regular and one lil' swimmers), wipes, burp towel, pacifier, and a hat. on the day of each trip i will add a bottle and the camera. that's just for you! forget all of the items mom needs for herself. leaving the house will never be the same again, parks.
our family has been pretty busy lately (shalini, our neighbor, told me yesterday that we are the busiest people she's ever met! ha). dad looked oh so handsome in his tux last weekend and we really enjoyed time with mom's family in lawrence. more pics to come. love you little guy! i'm so proud of you for going in the swimming pool with a good attitude! :)
