Ok, I wouldn't call it a pool party because it was just Nathan and I but it was his first pool experience. At first, I just stood him in the nice warm water (from the sink) so he could get his feet wet and not totally freak out - then I sat him down. We practiced kicking his feet and splashing with his hands. He wasn't in long but enough for today. As you can see the sides of this pool are perfect height for Nathan to sit back and chill out...and, by the way not sure if I was suppose to keep the diaper on or off but I kept it on. It weighed about 5 pounds when I took it off. I have to give Huggies credit - I tried to wring that baby out - nothing!
