It's me again, asking for more pictures of the babies. Please humour me.
Here's Atticus in his swim diaper, getting ready for his first dip in the pool! He'll be 4 months old next week.
He is adorable! How was the pool process? Glad he liked it. Around here babies can't start until 6 months.
I think he really liked it! I planned to hold him vertically and just bounce him up & down to get him used to the water, but he immediately kept pushing his chest forward to get into a horizontal position, and then started kicking his legs and crawling with his arms, with an adorably determined expression on his face. So I pulled him around with my hands under his armpits as if he was swimming. He got water in his face a few times but seemed okay with it - one time it went up his nose & he didn't like that, but he stayed very good natured about the whole thing. He loves moving his body and kicking his legs so much, that I think it was really satisfying to be able to do that underwater where he could feel some resistance. We used the "Water Walking" lane at the YMCA - it worked really well.
Atticus is so cute and looks so excited! I wish we could introduce all of our babies. I can't wait to take Quinn swimming, although, there is really nothing stopping me...
Quinn is a lot more smiley now, she laughs and coos when engaged, and is getting more into talking, but she is still my serious girl diligently trying to figure out the entire world on her own time.
Atticus and Quinn are such dolls! I'm impressed at the amount of hair that Atticus has and I love love love Quinns hat in that first picture.
Here is my sweet angel Gwen.
So about swim diapers - do they really contain breastmilk poo at all? We're about to head to Hawaii, and everything I read seems to indicate swim diapers exist to contain solid poo, not pee, but BB's poo is anything but solid!
Aw, Quinn's tummy is so cute! Love the sleeping shots of Gwen - I think 80% of the photos I have of Atticus are of him asleep. Nice work on the peeing, Baby Bird! Such sweet long legs. And Justmee...5 months old? Crazy! He's adorable!
Atticus hasn't pooped in his swim diaper, so I don't know how well it would hold it in. I too am very skeptical of how it would work! But he only poops very 9-10 days, so I just keep my fingers crossed.
