St. Louis Park Aquatic Center

Gabe and I have season passes to the SLP Aquatic Center.  I wasn’t sure we’d get use out of them (and we may not, compared to other families) but they are working out perfectly.  Since we have season passes, I never feel obligated to spend “all day” there to get our day pass’ worth.  If we feel like just going for a couple hours one night, great!  Weather turns south, no worries!  It’s kind of nice.  And so is the park:

Gabe figures out what the wheel does.

It is a zero depth entry pool, meaning it gradually deepens from zero to 24 (or 36, I’m not sure which), but is deeper yet after the ropes and in other areas of the pool.  It has slides for little kids and bigger kids, and plenty of sprayers, fountains, and splashy things.

Lily loves to hang out in water (with me) and splash and kick, while Gabe runs all around having a blast.  One of these times I need to get Mike or someone else to come with me so I can take Gabe on the bigger slides.  He’s not sure strong enough of a swimmer to do them completely on his own, and I can’t leave Lily on her own either.  Next time.

Bath Time!

Here’s a little video of Lily at bath time:

Bath time for Lily!

Bath time for Lily!

It’s kind of long (one minute) and I gave her a wash cloth for modesty (so she doesn’t get mad at me when she’s older and finds out I shared bath time videos of her – hehehe).  It’s neat to contrast how much bigger she has got since her last bath time photos I shared with you.  Enjoy!

She’s getting so big!  And we have confirmation of it – today at the doctor’s office we found out Lily is 9lbs. 2oz!  WOW!  It took Gabe forever to get that big, and Lily has done it in a month.  Lily is going to be a baby nothing like her brother, it seems.  He was a difficult baby at night his first few months – up for hours of rocking and walking and crying.  She sleeps like a dream – only waking up once at night after a 5 hour stretch, and then back to sleep for another 3 or 4 hours.  He was easy going and mellow during the day (probably catching up on lost sleep from the night before!) and she’s awake, and often fussy if not being fed or walked around (she’s not content to just sit still).  It’s amazing how different babies can be!
