Our little fish

Last week, Egan got to go swimming for the first time. He's been "swimming" in the back yard in the baby pool, and to splash parks to play in the sprinklers, but this was the first time in a real pool.
He did awesome! Here he is when he first got in with daddy. If you know Egan, you know he is pretty serious when it comes to new things. He likes to take it all in before letting you know if it is fun or not.

Here he is trying out his new floaty. Still serious.

Mom finally got in... still pretty serious.

I must say, he really did have fun. We splashed and dipped our faces in the water. We even worked on blowing bubbles. He hasn't quite mastered that, but he did pretty good, and I was so proud of him for trying. I was also proud of him for not shedding a tear or clinging to us for dear life. The only thing he didn't care for was when we worked with him to get him to float on his back. That wasn't too much fun.
After about 45 minutes in the big pool we moved over to the kiddy pool where we could let him roam on his own a bit after a quick picture with mom.



I'm pretty sure this is Egan babbling about something. He does a lot of that these days.

Jazz hands?

Now he decided that he'd had enough of just standing around, so here he is walking around.


He thought it was so fun to stick his hands in the water and then wave them up in the air.

See, fun! Finally!


Egan is quite the little fearless fish and we look forward to lots more fun this summer.
