Daddy Day!

Kristen has returned to work one day a week. So that means that Eric is using his remaining family leave time to stay home with Lillian every Tuesday. It's been quite an adventure. Lillian seems to remember how to drink from a bottle pretty well, though I suspect she's taking as little as she can, saving herself till mom gets home. Luckily she likes her oatmeal.

We're not just hanging out around the house all day either. We've started attending swim lessons at the Betty Wright Swim Center. Lillian took to the pool like a pro at her first lesson, splashing, laughing and even jumping in. Her second session today was a little more rocky. She was so excited on first entering the pool that she got away from Eric and bumped her head on the side of the pool. That left her in a bad mood for the rest of the session. On top of that, she was the only pupil in today's session so I think she was a little overwhelmed by all the attention. She lasted about 20 minutes of the half hour session before she had a melt-down and needed to go home. After swimming we usually go for a walk around the neighborhood, today we played on the swings. Daddy day is good fun for everyone (but it sure wears daddy out!).
