4th of July

neither joel nor i are particularly patriotic, and so i thought i would have a little fun dressing up truman as a little patriot. we surprised joel and got a good kick out of it. of course, truman had to wear his gear a little longer, until we met up with joel's family for breakfast in millcreek canyon, so they could experience the cuteness.

we had a great morning in the canyon with joel nearly getting in a fight with the idiot in the campsite next to us (i'll spare you the details, but it was entertaining!). next, we went up to east canyon reservoir with joel's sister anne and spent a few hours enjoying the sun and cool water. truman was a champ and had the best time. he really loves being outside and was just happy to be along for the ride.

Truman's First Swim

we took truman swimming for the first time the other day, and he absolutely loved it! he didn't cry once, not even when we got out of the pool and he was cold! he must love the water as much as his dad and i do. we are so excited to be able to share this with him and look forward to much more swimming in the future!

doesn't he look so content and laid back in his little floaty? his little legs were moving the whole time, like he was swimming. it was so cute! oh, and his new thing is sucking his two fingers. he hasn't ever been interested in a pacifier, and this definitely helps him self-soothe now.
