Declan Phelps

When Declan was 6 months old we did a mommy and me swim class, but only for a couple of lessons.  It was expensive and just involved singing the alphabet to the babies while we dragged them through the water.  I figured that  I could do that without paying someone for the privilege.  But at our first class I took this picture which remains one of my favourites:

I just wanted an excuse to post that cute picture.  Anyway, after a 2 year hiatus we have resumed swim lessons.   He got so comfortable in the water this summer that I didn't want to lose the momentum over the winter months.  So a few lessons in and now Declan can swim a couple of strokes on his own.  Awesome!


  1. I don't think I ever told you that Declan is one of my very favorite names ever! He is so damn cute...
