These photos were taken last week when the glorious British sun shone and shone and we spent most of the week splashing around.

Alexander in the paddling pool



Alexander in the paddling pool

My sweet little baby boy Alexander turned 10 months old yesterday and these wonderfully summery stills snapped by my husband Peter truly capture his intrigue at being back in a paddling pool post holiday. I adore the concentration in the pictures, the first so his interest in the birds flying above him. He actually crawled into the paddling pool himself (under my watchful gaze) and played and played, delighting in the splashing warm water in the shade. To be a 10 month old again!

      @Alexander Residence thank you lovely, everyone thinks he’s older than his age! He’s a tall little baby boy too-takes after his Dad!

    I thought he was so much older than 10 months – all that hair! So lovely for them to cool down in the paddling pool, he looks very ‘at home’!

      @3Children and It I know, he has a lot of hair and is ‘tall’ and speaks so people assume he’s older-he’s just 10 months too!

    Gorgeous photos. My little boy is 10 & a half months old, and is also an Alexander! He had his first paddling pool adventure, too, last week. It is lovely to see them exploring new territories 🙂 #whatsthestory?
