One night last week, Claire graduated to the "duck tub." Grant started using this tub when he was probably 7 or 8 months old. I don't remember exactly. He loved it so much that his first real word was "duck." Since Claire is getting more stable, I decided to move her out of her tub chair and into this. She seems to really like it. The first time I put her in it, she was so funny. She just sat there with her head down looking at the water, while she held onto both sides with her hands, like she was in a boat or something. She's now pretty relaxed about the whole thing and kicks back and enjoys the water!
I feel like all of my posts lately are more about Claire than Grant. Obviously, this isn't intentional. She's just doing so many new things right now. Grant is still the character he always was. He's enjoying his summer pool time, but begs to go back to school (MDO) weekly. Trying to explain summer break is easier said than done. He is taking swimming lessons next week, which will probably be interesting. I hope he does well, but I'm not expecting much. He's a bit afraid of going under. Although, last weekend, he did jump off the side several times to my sister in law. I tried to get him to jump to me to no avail. In a few weeks, I think we may take him to an amusement park and water park..I know we're gluttons for punishment. I'm sure I'll regret it afterward, but right now, it sounds really fun! Here's a random picture of Grant from a week or so ago in the backyard.
