Swim Time

Today, my mom & I decided to go to the pool for a little while. It's been said, more than once, that I'm pretty white this summer. I guess everyone is so use to me being tan during the summer. Since I had Kaden in early May, I haven't had much time to just lay in the sun. At his 2 month check-up, Kaden's Dr gave us the ok to hang out at the pool. So, we've been twice now. His first time was at a birthday party. He loves bath time, so I hoped he'd like the pool too! He does! He just chills in his little raft. (It actually has places for his legs, but right now, we just lay him across!)

Kaden, mommy & Grandma at the pool.

It's kinda dark, but he's smiling at mommy. Not sure what I was doing, but he's starting to smile and coo a lot. We've even got a little giggle from him a couple times.

After 15 or 20 minutes, he'd had enough. He stuck his thumb in his mouth and passed out. This is the first time he's fallen asleep with his thumb. Every now and then I'll catch him sucking it....usually when he's hungry & fussy, and I'm not feeding him fast enough. He wasn't even fussy at the time, I guess he just wanted something to suck on. I know it's not a good habit, but I think it's so cute when he sucks his thumb. He's the loudest smacker!

Now this is the life!!

Swimming with mom & Grandma wore him out!!!

I have been dying to go to the pool, but I didn't know if there was a general rule on when it was okay to take a small baby. I wonder if 2 months is the general rule or if that is what your pedi said. I'm going to atleast wait until the end of summer. Maybe when school starts back up and the pools are as crowded.
