Ryken likes bathing in a pail or batya.
He's not fond of the beach or the swimming pool.
His first beach encounter was in Puerto Galera at 6 1/2 months old.
His next beach experience was in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte at 7 1/2 months old.
He never liked it.
His first pool encounter was with an inflatable pool that we bought. (Sadly, I don't have a picture of it).
His second pool experience was in Jed's Island Resort at 10 months old. He slept on his baby float due to much crying, probably because the "waves" also rocked him to sleep. (I can't find a decent picture of it so here's a video, hehe..)
His fourth experience was with our inflatable pool again at 1year and 8 months. This time, he seems to love it already, yey! :)
But five days after that, when we went to Mindoro for a vacation and visited Kuya Roni's house that has a pool, he cried again. He doesn't like to dip in the pool and only stayed at the side. I think he prefers to just dip his feet in the pool.
Oh, well. I hope he gets to love the water next time. His Papa is a good swimmer pa naman. Namana ata niya ang takot ko sa tubig dahil hindi ako marunong lumangoy :D
