A quick dip with daddy!

New dad John Stamos shared a sweet picture of himself hitting the water with his baby son on Monday. In the adorable snap, the actor, 55, held Billy in what appeared to be a pool. The baby’s face wasn’t visible because of his sun hat.

The Fuller House star captioned the photo, “Some days are just better than others.”

Stamos and his wife Caitlin McHugh welcomed Billy, whose full name is William Christopher Stamos, on April 10 in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirmed via his birth certificate. The couple announced the news on Instagram.

“It’s been beautiful,” Stamos said. “Every second you pray that you can keep the kid alive. Every day is different, time has become very elusive, stuff just goes by so fast. It’s just beautiful. I’ve cried most days; I just stare at him.”

Unfortunately, Billy hasn’t quite picked up on Stamos’ iconic haircare regimen just yet, but “he has my smirk,” Stamos shared. “He only goes into action when I turn off the camera! I’ll have to reverse that if he’s going to be my son.”
