Motherhood Monday-Swimming is Fun!

This week Baby learned that "swimming" is fun!

I was really surprised that he didn't seem to like the ocean water, while we were at the beach.  The kid loves baths and being outside.  I thought he would love the beach!  But, it was raining a lot, so the water was cold. I blame the cold.

So, I filled our little baby pool with water and let it sit for a while, so the water got warm.  When we first got in, he didn't seem to care.  But, once I showed him that you can use your hand to splash the water....well that opened up a whole new world!  He loved it.

Motherhood Monday-The Beach and Father's Day

Sorry I missed you for Motherhood Monday, last week.  We were spending some family time here:
Unfortunately, Baby didn't particularly like it.  He enjoyed the ocean air, as he LOVES the outdoors.  But, that was about the extent of it.  He didn't like the cold water, he didn't like the sand on his feet, he didn't like the heat.  I really hope he learns to love the beach as he gets older, since Brandon and I possibly love it more than any place on earth.

Summer List

I don't know why, but I normally think it's a little silly to make a physical "bucket list".  But, Trina from Beginner Beans posted about her summer bucket list, and I thought it was a good idea.  I have so many things I constantly have on my brain to do, I can't seem to get any of them done.  So this seemed like a good way to set my focus and actually do some things.

Here's mine:

Motherhood Monday-Baby's New Friend

I'm falling in love with motherhood more and more.  I LOVE it when my sweet boy looks into my eyes and coos or reaches up and touches my face.  It just doesn't get any better.

Over Memorial Day, I went to visit my dear friend, who is also a new mommy.  Baby had his first plane ride.  He did so well!  Minimal fussing, slept through takeoff....awesome!  He also got to make a new friend.  See? Here they are "playing".
