Swim Lessons

We had a special treat at swim lessons today....Daddy!! Daddy got to come learn with mommy and Lilly! Here is Lilly with daddy. Lilly has her swim buoy on. This is the part of the lesson where she is kicking across the pool....or at least we are going back and forth across the pool saying, "kick, kick, kick, kick, YAY!!"
Eating the equipment...
Using the kick-board across the pool...this is not her favorite part of the lesson. She actually had the most fun at today's lesson. I don't know if it was because Daddy was there, or if it wasn't as hot today, or if she is just getting the hang of it....either way, she didn't fuss at all! I also think that Matt is better at just letting her hang out if she doesn't want to do part of the lesson....I have a tendency to try and get her to do it because it is part of the lesson--I know that is crazy because she is 9 months old!
Bumping the wall with the board--she does enjoy this part!
Daddy is blowing bubbles in the pool for Lilly!
Taking a breather...these lessons are exhausting!
Floating on her back. I didn't get a picture of her "getting out" of the pool. She can hang on to the side of the pool on her own! I am really proud of our little swimmer!
Daddy, Lilly, and Mommy--this is during the end of the lesson where you just play in the water! We are having a good time. It is a lot to try and get a 9 month old and pregnant woman to morning swim lessons five days in a row, but we are over the hump and going strong!!

Love the new header photo! I keep showing these to Kate hoping she will get inspired to wear her hairbows like Lilly does:)

Some of my favorite memories are of the grandkids learning to swim in our pool. Enjoy and remember every minute of it :-))))

Cute! All the well-loved babies are swimming, it seems! My daughter and daughter-in-law would love your blog. We have 2 two-year old swimmers and one ten month old fishy! Miss Bug is only four months old so I'll hold her when we turn the backyard into summer fun land! Your photos are beautiful!
