Cooper is loving swimming this summer. In our pool, he just wants to jump in from the edge-- no fear. Every time he sees the pool he says "splash splash" and gets excited. And we went to the city aquatic center yesterday and there's a play structure in the middle of the kiddie pool and he just wanted to climb up and slide down over and over. Even though our pool is great, there's nowhere that Cooper can stand up, so it can be a little exhausting going swimming with him. So I decided to get him a pool of his own for splashing around in. We got it out for the first time this week and he is a BIG FAN. We swam with a friend earlier this week and then got it out this morning for Cooper to splash around a little.
He loves walking all around in the water
And then falling down and sitting with his toys. He loves his ducks and balls and wanted them closeby. He also really loved getting down on his hands and knees and sticking his face under the water and then looking back up and smiling.
Daddy decided we needed to try out the slide into the pool, so he helped Cooper climb up and slide in.
Cooper loved it!
We had a fun morning watching Cooper splash around. I love having this little pool for the long summer days. It's nice that we have an option for staying cool where I don't have to get in the water so only one of us ends up soaking wet. He still only lasts about 30 minutes at a time, but it's a good way to get outside on the hot days.
