Michael Phelps shares first pics of baby boy Boomer in the pool

Boomer Phelps just took one tiny step toward following in his father's footsteps — or maybe it's more of a tiny splash toward swimming in his lane.

Gold-medal great and proud papa Michael Phelps hopped in the pool with his 2-month-old son Wednesday, and he and fiancee Nicole Johnson shared the sweet photos online.

The little man loved the water today!! @boomerrphelps and I got some extra laps in today!! #mpswim

"The little man loved the water today!!" dad wrote in a caption on Instagram. "(Boomer) and I got some extra laps in today!!"

While the older Phelps got a few more laps in, Boomer found a shady spot in the pool — right on mom's tummy.

All in all, it was a great day for the little guy — at least that's what he (or whichever parent is posting to Instagram on his behalf) said.

"I loved going in the pool today with @nicole.m.johnson (mommy) and @m_phelps00 (daddy)," one post read. "Can't wait til I get to learn to swim from daddy and @coach_bowman !"

And we're sure Coach Bob Bowman, who's worked with Phelps since the Olympic swimmer was just 11 years old, can't wait either.

Had some much needed Boomer time. May he grow up in a world filled with love. #boomerphelps
