Swimming lessons
The most delightful thing you can do with a baby - structured time in the water, and on the hottest day of the year so far. Dear Alex loves the water, so much so that Ms. Alex and I thought it prudent that we learn a little about babies and water. It turns out that it's all okay, and they really do know how to not inhale when you submerge them - a dunk and a lift out of the water gets you a "Garrgh!, Gaah!" and grin. One of dear Alex's happiest sounds. Mostly she likes to splash, and definitely prefers face-down over on her back in the water. A few weeks ago we went to a beach near the undisclosed location (pictured above), where she crawled in the sand for the first time (much delight there) then headed straight for the water, and crawled in face-first, and loved it. Everything is so new, there's so much to see and do. "Gaah!"
