Taegan's Pool Time Take 2

Last summer when Taegan was barely a month old we tried putting him in the girls' pool on our deck. He hated it! He screamed and screamed. I found out that little babies aren't that fond of cool/cold pool water. So, needless to say, we didn't do a lot of swimming with Taegan last summer. So... I thought this year would be different. Well, not really. We got him all ready Sunday afternoon in his cute little board shorts and went outside for an afternoon of family pool time. He was so excited watching his sisters play in the pool on the deck. He just stood at the door and laughed and screamed with delight.

I thought the pool water would be nice and warm, but the sun had already gone behind our house so our deck was covered in shade and it wasn't as warm as I had hoped. We went ahead and put him in and this is what we got...

More screaming!! Then he stood up and tried climbing out of the pool! He wanted nothing to do with swimming or the pool.
So, I guess we'll try again another time. He loves baths, so if I can just find a way to heat a plastic, inflatable pool - we should be set!
