Little Fishy

We took our little fishy to her third swimming lesson this morning, and since Brad and I were both able to go, I took the opportunity to take a couple of photos.  This little lady LOVES the water, and although our instructor is a little brash, our lessons have been really fun so far.  To date, she’s practiced splashing, blowing bubbles, dipping her ears and chin in the water, doing front and back floats, and doing front and back wall push offs.  Next lesson’s skill? Submersion. And us moms have already been told that it would be better if dads attend the session because dads have no qualms about putting their babies under water…  Should be interesting!

  1. Ally hated putting her head under the water. She did her first lessons at almost 2, and then last year she was still nervous about submersion, but was handling it much better. This year she’ll be 4 and she’s so enthusiastic about getting back in, I think this’ll be the year that she’s in it for fun!

    1. I’m not going to lie, I was really nervous about it and wasn’t sure I’d attempt it at all. Gracen’s always loved water, and the last thing I want is for her to end up fearing it. Turns out, it wasn’t as scary looking as I thought it would be. I decided I’d give it a shot and let that determine whether or not we’d try it again. Luckily, Gracen didn’t seem to mind at all! :)

      1. Oh good! Ally hated it with a fiery passion. I tried to encourage her to try it at least once every time we were at the pool, but she still hated it until her last swim instructor asked her to do it. The power of other people I guess, hahaha.
