Maddox's First Pool Day

6.17.2015
Last weekend we were fortunate enough to use a friends pool so we could watch Maddox experience his first swim. The lake is still sooooo cold so we can't get in yet. Let me rephrase that. I refuse to get in the water until it feels like bath water. So I was really anxious to put Maddox in his swimsuit and see his reaction to the water plus get some pool time myself.

Turns out I have a water baby on my hands! He LOVES it! I half expected it because he loves his bath so much, but I still wasn't sure how he would react. He was so calm and interested in the bright colors of the pool. He really liked standing on the side and "jumping" in where I would submerge him up to his shoulders with a splash and then put him right back on the side and he would smile so big. I have a daredevil baby. He isnt afraid to be tossed in the air, dunked in the pool, etc. #lordhelpme

He didn't like being laid on his back, but if you put him on his belly he would kick his feet, which was so cute! I didn't realize babies have an instinct of how to swim from like 0-6 months. Isn't that neat!? I'm looking forward to a lot more pool/lake days this Summer watching my water baby splash around!

Now... picture overload. #sorryimnotsorry

PS. My suit is from TJMaxx, Maddox's bottoms are Target and his hat is Old Navy.

  12. Darling photos!! It's the best when they love the water :) I started Bug on swim 'lessons' with a fab group in the UK at 3 months old and we kept going all the way through to leaving. On day one all of the kids do an underwater swim and they do 1-4 at every lesson after that. There's nothing like that over here so I just take her to pools when I can - she adores the water and there's no fear! :)

  15. Looks like he is a pro. Vivian was older when we took her to the water for the first time, albeit at a lake not by the pool. We just came back from vacation though and she loved the sea even more this year that she is older. Great family pics - thanks for sharing.
