First Encounter

We were in Penang (Jonathan’s Er Yi’s house) few weekends ago. Took the opportunity to see Jonathan’s reaction towards the pool water. Guess, the pics says it all…

We made a mistake.  We were too eager to put him in the water so the moment his little toes felt the cold water, he screamed immediately and resisted it. Moreover, it was his sleeping time so he wasn’t in a good mood.

He is too cute when he cries so that’s the reason why I love to make him cry at times. Watch his mouth… Bad mommy, huh? 😛

We cooled him down then we tried to put him on the baby float to see if he can paddle on his own. Again, he screamed. So he is afraid to be left alone. Looking at him crying, Mom insisted to stop putting him in the water so that he won’t get phobia to the water. On the contrary, I didn’t want to give up. Being a kiasu mom, I must make sure that Jonathan boy can swim very well like his Gong Gong and Shi Yi Zhang because both Darling and I cannot swim. What a shame…

After a few try, see…he enjoyed playing in the water, splashing so hard. Must set up the big pool at home one day…

And here…my lovely niece, Jean Suen loves the water but dislike being pushed to the middle of pool. As usual, the naughty Wu Yi (me) ask her Papa to push her to the middle of pool and left her there, alone. She cried and keep yelling, “I want Mommy, I want Mommy”.

Credit goes to my little sis for capturing such a wonderful moments.

    June – If you are afraid of cold, don’t leave her too long in the water. I think sometimes we need to expose them to cold and hot so to let them get used to it.

    i always want to let little Xandria try on the pool. Somehow, my sis and mom resisted it. They afraid she will get cold from it. Sighh…

    Looking at the photo of Jonathan, i can see how much he enjoy the pool water.

    Debbie – Since Xandria often fall sick, maybe you should wait till she’s a little older. By then, I bet she will be splashing and kicking the water all over your face. 🙂
