Baby D’s first lesson of blowing bubbles was a bit over his head, but he took very seriously the kicking lessons, and now kicks all the time no mater what.

  1. Nice summer post that is baby related.
    I would love to get my soon to be 9 months old into the love of water. He has been in the pool once (when he was 6 months old). He did fine in it, but he sure needs more sessions to learn how to be confident in it. hmm. I need to invest in pool time. Thanks for sharing. Your boy looks precious.
