Our little Fish!

Today Blake and I went swimming for the first time. Our friends Tori and Kalob called and asked if we wanted to and I decided that it was about time to introduce Blake to the water. Now normally he loves his baths so I didn't think this would be a problem. And guess what? I was......right. Blake loved the water. He did so good and was so happy. The water felt so good in the hot hot sun.


Blake and Kalob. Pre swim


They were so cute together. Blake is almost 5 months and Kalob is 7 1/2 months.

On the way to the pool. Chillin in the stroller.

This video is Blakes first time going into the water. He did so good. He was a little confused at first but didn't mind the cool water at all. What a stud!

Blake had so much fun in the water. He was a natural. I put him on his back and he just stuck his thumb in his mouth and relaxed. He definately takes after his mom in the water.

This video is when I dunked Blake under water. I did this about five times and he didn't get mad at all. He would come up and blink a few times and then start blowing spit bubbles while the water ran out of his mouth. It was so cute to watch.

Blake did so well and it was fun to swim with him. We are definately going to do it more often.


I knew it was time to get out when Blake starteed to shiver and his lips were turning blue. We swam for about 45 minutes and he didn't fuss once until I took him out. He loved being wrapped up in a warm towel and cuddling with mommy after our swim.

My little fishy!




We had so much fun together. I love my Blakey so much.



Blake didn't want to go back home. This is him telling me that he wanted to keep swimming. We will definately have to swim a lot this summer because of the heat. It's a good thing that Blake likes the water. See ya next time.
