Adam had his first pool party with two other kids who are about 6-8 months older than him. He sure had fun though. He had just woken up form a nap, but he eventually got into the neighbor's pool. We didn't use our pool because there was the green frog pool he was in and and another one. Yes, Mommy did join him for some splashing fun. Oh, and while we had our little pool party, Adam decided to stand for a little while and take his first step! Luckily after Daddy came home later, he took another step. He takes a step and then falls, but at least it's a start. Yay! I don't have to carry him as much, but at the same time Yikes! I have to baby proof even taller things.
He did try to drink the water, and was somewhat successful, until Mommy took away the cup. I think that he's better with a regular cup than with a sippy cup.
