We played it safe and decided to spend some family "down time" at home post-hospital stay. We got Braden a baby pool - it's a frog, of course. He seems adverse to the initial introduction of the "new sensation"... but after he got used to it, he seemed to adjust very well and even enjoy it. I think the initial feeling of floating is a little scary for him at first, but then he seems to enjoy the freedom of floating and letting his legs relax in the water. Mommy splashed around with him a good bit, and even dared to "dunk" the little guy. He kept his mouth wide open of course, so mommy had to give him some good back pats to get him to spit out the water. Daddy thought it was mean - but Mommy said we won't know how he will react or be able to teach him if we never do it. I think we'll wait another year before trying that one again, though.
Daddy spent time teaching Braden how to float on his back and playing with him like he was a little boat in th water - it was lots of fun for both.
Thanks for all your recent prayers and notes of support. We are just reveling in every moment we are blessed to have Braden in our lives, and we thank you for being a part of that. We hope you enjoy the pics!
