The last two months have been fantastic!! Life is crazy, as always, but our first summer with Mister Harper has been a blast. Harper changes by the day. We continue to celebrate and experience more "firsts" in his life. I am constantly reminded about all the blessings in my life.
On June 15th we took Harper to the pool for the first time. Our neighborhood has a gorgeous outdoor pool. It opened in May but we have been so busy that we hadn't had a chance to make it there until now. We already knew that Harper's favorite time of the day is bath time. I had a strong inkling that he would love the pool. Boy was I right. Harper is a total water baby. He had no fear whatsoever. He giggled as soon as Erik carried him down the steps into the water. He splashed around and tried to dunk his face under the water on several occasions. We bought a floaty for him from Target and it worked out great. It protected his face from the sun and made it very easy for us to cruise him around the pool.
By the end of the day Harper was exhausted. He passed out while Erik fed him his bottle. Our trip to the pool was a success and we look forward to spending many more summer afternoons swimming together.
