Robby the Fish

I am thrilled to say that my son is like me in one very important way...he LOVES the water.  After his initial hatred of baths (which he's LONG since gotten over), he's a happy little clam whenever you put him in water.

We went to a state park on Friday and made one large error.  We took the jogging stroller.  We would have been MUCH happier with just the Bjorn.  It wasn't a hard hike to the river, but there were a lot of tree roots and a fair number of steps.  So Robby and I were having trouble keeping up with Chris and Harper...and my arms got a major workout.

Once there, though, both Harper and Robby were thrilled.  Robby, of course, is thrilled any time he can see trees, but see trees, water, and his puppy playing?  His mind is blown.

Consequently, he slept almost 12 hours last night, only waking up once at 5:30.  I even woke up ON MY OWN.  It almost feels like he gets too much sleep when he's not my wrong.  It's what we're shooting for, right?

Today was his first time in a pool, which he thoroughly enjoyed, and Chris viewed from afar, agreeing to take this one picture...  We could be in trouble.  He's been asleep in the swing for a couple hours, and we need to get him to go to bed.  Doh.  Bad planning on our part.


  1. Your baby's life is already packed full of more fun activities than mine. :)

  2. LOVE IT!!!!!! I'm so jealous! I want to take mine to go swimming :)
