Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming....

Here are some shots of Justin's swim class yesterday. He finished another poriton of level III in Aaron's class; he starts another portion of level III on Monday. We aren't sure who is teacher is. They have been working on strong kicking, freestyle swimming, and the back stroke. They have also been working up to treading water for 5 minutes at a time in the 9 foot section of the pool. Aaron and Charlie had them do swim fitness drills one day as well, where they would get out of the pool and do either 10 push ups or sit ups, then they would jump back into the pool and swim freestyle to the other end. Once they got to the other end they would jump out and do 10 push ups or sit ups, and then they would jump back in and do the back stroke to the other end of the pool. They kept this up until the last 5 minutes of class where they are allowed to do any kind of jumps off the diving board (no flips) and then swim to the ladder and do it again! He's been having a blast and Jacob is enjoying being at the pool as well. I can tell I need to get him a swim suit! The pool has family swim each night from 5:15-7 and John and I have been talking and we'd like to do that one night soon. I think I'll go to the second hand baby store here by the house and try and find Jacob a swim suit and then all he needs is some Huggies Little Swimmers!!!

This is a shot out of what will be the living room
window that is by the front door.

This is a shot of the side of the house; if you
are looking from the front of the house it is
the left side of the house.

This is the beginning of our back deck!!! The
portion to the right that has the beams on the
top is where our covered part of the deck will
be. So we'll be able to get some shade!

Me and My Puppy

Jacob has just taken to "hugging" his puppy!
He loves it because he can hold onto it, suck
on it and hug it! He's just really starting to
grasp onto things and he is really loving this
puppy! His head is like a little rattle so it
makes a bit of noise and Jacob loves hearing
it because he knows that means puppy is on
his way to him!

Napping with Puppy on a Warm Summer's Day...

When I got home from work yesterday morning
John had Jacob dressed in these adorable pants
and a ship themed button down shirt. Not more
than 5 minutes after I got home he spit up and
of course the shirt had to go!

We put him in the bouncy chair and I
sat and talked to him for a while, and
then he played with "puppy" and fell
asleep. I couldn't resist taking some
pictures of him without his little
