Pool time baby!

Uncle Scott, Aunt Allie and Cousin Caden decided last minute to pack up the car and head to SanDestin for the weekend. They stayed at the Hilton, which has an indoor pool, with the water just the perfect temperature for introducing the boys to the swimming pool for the first time! The absolutely loved it. Brody kicked and "swam" and splashed everyone within 5 feet of him, including whacking Mommy in the face out of excitement!! Wade was more laid back, very surprising..., and spent the majority of the time belly laughing at Cousin Caden and sticking his whole hand in his mouth. (We think he laughed at Caden because he has never seen a little boy with that much hair!! haha) The boys wore their cute little sear sucker swim suits from Natalie with the little swimmer diaper underneath. FYI: the swimming diapers do not hold pee you know all of the babies that were in the pool with us were just peeing away. We were swimming in it, Wade sucking it off of his hands and Brody splashing us in the face with pee water. Oh was a blast!!Putting the boys under...I have read about the benefits of doing this at an early age...gets them used to the water and their natural breath holding kicks in. Wade didn't even notice that he went under and Brody looked a little shocked, but smiled within 1 second!!

Wade taking his first dive: B-man swimming All 3 baby Harrell boys All done swimming and READY for bottles!!Wade is becoming more and more mobile as the days go by...lots of scooting and rolling and already getting into cabinets! He rolled back to the entertainment center and opened the cabinet! Hi Mom, whats up? I didn't open that was Brody! A couple of cute pics from this past week:
Brody has started power rolling now< id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5316085919561536178" style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 300px; TEXT-ALIGN: center" alt="" src="" border="0">Stroller rides are still a favorite with the boys. Our nanny Ms. Margaret has been out of town, so I stayed home with the boys for most of last week...needless to say, we walked 6 1/2 miles one of the days and 8 miles the next! They never make a sound and love to look at everything!Our good friends, the Wesson's, had us over for burgers and hot dogs....and formula, I guess :) on Thursday night and we all really enjoyed playing with the babies!Since Scott and Allie were in town, we arranged for our very first babysitter (besides our parents or Ms. Margaret) to come in and watch the boys for the night! Here is a pic of their first babysitter, Danielle "Dani". She did an amazing job!
