pool time

By Ryan & Betsy

This weekend marked Linus’ first trips to the pool. Saturday we met the Arlington Allen’s at Belle Haven CC, where we braved the chilly baby pool. It was COLD, but none of the kids-Linus included-seemed to care. Notice how the only swim gear he’s sporting is a swim diaper. No bathing suit, no SPF water shirt, no swimmies, nothing. I didn’t even realize that he would need a bathing suit until I saw all the other little kids in theirs…duh!

Linus became super excited when he spotted his cousin Sulley across the pool. It was either because he recognized her…

…or because he loves pink swim gear…but either way, he was loving some Sulley Bear!

Sulley, however, was more interested in removing his hat.

airplane game: fun or terrifying?

By Ryan & Betsy

Ryan and Linus have started the airplane game; sometimes Linus loves it, and sometimes he hates it. You never really know what his reaction will be. At first we thought we had found his new favorite activity…

…then we had some doubts.

room for two?

By Ryan & Betsy

We recently realized that Linus loves his Baby Einstein Deluxe Activity Gym. As soon as we put him in it, he starts making tons of noise and thrashing his arms and legs like crazy while staring at the toys above him. He especially loves it when Ryan somehow squeezes himself into the gym with him.
