Water baby!!!





After our two lil holidays we have realised that Joy is a water baby.... he loves the water....
From when he was a few days old... he loved being bathed... he would sit still in his bath chair.. while we bathed him....only deciding to slide his lil chubby legs off when he didn't like what we were doing.. which would usually be .. scrubbing behind his ears... or rubbing shampoo on his head....
Look at him enjoy the water..... when he was lil....

The first time we put him into a swimming pool... we did so with some apprehension... we weren't worried about the water being unclean ..or... that he might get a cold.... actually those thoughts didn't even come to my mind... I had to hear a lot from people later, saying that I shouldn't have taken the risk of putting him into a public pool ( it was the hotel pool ..but whatever!!!) at such a young age....




We were more worried .. that he would be scared and yell his lungs out.. and then never want to go into a pool after that.....but thank god.. he didn't do any of the above....

He loved the water... almost dived in.... and refused to come out....

Check him out in Surajgarh :

This was his first time in the pool




We found him to be a natural swimmer.... his legs moved automatically..... we even bought a set of arm floats for him....but they were a lil too big... hence we had to hold on to him....




My mum picked up the cutest pair of trunks for her grandson.... from Mumbai.... I haven't seen a baby look cuter before...




In Nalagarh.... he took one look at the pool and let out a WHoop!!!!of joy.... he was so thrilled... we put him in the water everyday..... his floats fit this time and he splashed around and teased both the lil girls who were in the pool with him.. show off!!!!

We plan to take him to the club so that he can swim and beat the heat..... but then also felt ..that he needn't wait till his parents took him to the pool... so we made the pool... ahem a paddle pool come to him.....

In his paddle pool


Now whenever he passes the paddle pool kept in his bathroom... he screams out in Joy... he is now usually seen dragging the maid towards his new found form of fun.....

When the husband heard how much of fun his son had in his lil paddle pool...I was called to keep everything ready.....he wanted to be there for his son's evening bath and playtime yesterday....
They looked so cute.. I was quite sure father and son would both get in to the paddle pool... but I think the husband realised ....he wouldn't fit into the pool ....whichever way and however much he tried....LOL.....
