Stayin' Cool in the Pool

Yesterday evening we attended our church's Young Family Ministry's pool party. We enjoyed some pizza and goodies and then we decided to see if Fletch would like the pool. Earlier that day we hunted down some swim shorts for Fletch, but alas we couldn't find anything small enough for his little hiney. We finally did find a cute pair of orange surfer shorts for $1 at Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the rubber pants I bought were too big. When we put Fletch in the water, his super-absorbent diaper filled up quickly! He did actually enjoy the water for the 10 minutes we were in the kiddie pool.

It was a great party, but there were TONS of bugs! The number of flying ants that were out was kind of gross, especially since they all landed in the pool. We didn't stay in the kiddie pool very long because it was starting to look like an ant death-trap. We may do some evening swimming at the pool in our complex where the kiddie pool isn't an ant soup.

Some New Fletch Footage

Here's a little footage of what Fletch has been up to...

He's holding his head up spectacularly:

Here he is multi-tasking - hiccuping while bouncing in the bouncy seat:

Here he is rockin' the pacifier:

I know this is all too exciting, but its a riot to us :)

Fletch's Photo Shoot

A week after Fletch was born, we had a fabulous photographer come out to the house to take his picture. She came with good recommendations and was running a great special, so we splurged. As part of the package, we'll have 4 more photo shoots at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. I was able to get all the proofs from the newborn photo shoot and I uploaded them to Flickr for everyone to check out. This is the picture we chose for the big print:

Here is a slideshow of all the shots:
