Water Baby!

Eli LOVES water, so we got him a little pool and tried it out this weekend. We had a little practice inside first while daddy moved the water hose to the back yard.
So far so good!

When we got outside, we quickly realized that Eli didn't think the pool was the same as the bath tub...mainly because the water in the pool was really cold! He cried so hard I had to take him out and calm him down. We decided to let the sun warm up the water for a little while, but 5 minutes later we realized that was going to take forever. Stephen went inside and filled a couple of big bowls with hot water and we added it to the pool. It warmed right up! Great thinking Daddy! We put Eli back in and success! He loved splashing around and playing with the toys! I think we will fill up the little pool way in advance next time so it won't be so cold. Live and learn.

Can't open my eyes, Mom...it's too bright!

Yep--we had to do the same thing with Lily! She wants nothing to do with cold water, so we have to fill it up with warm water from inside.

Oh, he is just so stinkin' cute!! I just want to pick him up and squeeze him (in a good way, that is)! :)

My 4 month old nephew didn't like the baby pool either, when my sister put him in a couple weeks ago. He SCREAMED!!!
